We stayed only one night as we were attending a wedding in Wellington. We stayed in the Olive room in the Manor house. We felt very welcome. There are 2 roads into Dunstone. The first goes up to the reception where we checked in then a short drive to the Manor house. There we were also greeted in a friendly...

We have stayed here many times and it is always excellent. The rooms are all of a very high standard, staff very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The stone kitchen restaurant is excellent. The views are magnificent. Have already booked for next year.

We often try a new estate to stay on when we travel to the wine lands in Cape Town. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance, and arrived there in the dark, however the check in was friendly and helpful. The rooms appear to be converted stables, even with the stable doors still as the bedroom door. Waking...

We stayed in the Guava Cottage for 4 days over the Christmas period. The cottage is located amongst the vineyards and guava orchards of the winery. It is about a 5 minute drive away from the centre of Wellington and was easy to find. The final approach is dirt track but well maintained. Good shopping mall with Checkers and upmarket...

Many thanks for your review and highlighting the few negative points. I will ensure that the sun lounger cushions and braai grate are replaced - a grate was in fact on order in December but it never arrived. The bathrooms are due for a revamp in February when we have an opening in bookings, and I will look into the...

Spent the night in the Manor House with family from UK. It was sensational - beautifully decorated and very clean and comfy........ Only draw-back for locals is the price - a tad on the high side - but for tourists, great value when you bring in your pounds or Euros.

I was looking for somewhere to celebrate a special birthday with my family which comprises several small grandchildren. Our group took over the entire accommodation and were made so welcome. Rooms are very comfortably furnished and there is a family lounge with beautiful views over the wine lands. Dunstone also make their own excellent wines and they serve all meals...
