From the friendly and welcoming hosts, Andrew and Nel, to the carefully picked decor, the beautifully handpainted table cloths, the little personal touches like decent size pump action separate shampoos and conditioners and plunger coffee in every room- my visit was amazing!The mushroom and cheese omelette and Nel's homemade fig flavoured ice cream are not to be missed. Thanks guys,I...

As you arrive at this wonderful B&B the first you'll notice is the utter tranquility, the view will wash away any lingering stress you may have! Andrew and Nel welcome you like old friends, and take such good care of you, you'll not want for anything, other than perhaps a second portion of one of their delightful meals!

We stayed in a stunning hotel in Stellenbosch for the same price but afraid this hotel did not impress at all. I looked at the web site and the reviews again and thought I had stayed at a different hotel. The photos didn't portray the dark and dingy lounge and dining room. Didn't show the bright blue plastic table cloths...

I am sorry and surprised to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Strange that you decided to give us a bad rating without raising any of the issues whilst you were here. Maybe your unsuccessful dispute over our bill prompted this review, which in my opinion is unfair and way of the mark. We, however, take...

They are both registered tour guides, and give valuable advice for exploring the vineyards and natural beauty the area has to offer. This area is home to some of the best Port wines in the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our venture into the country and Andrew and Nell's professional yet friendly and welcoming attention made us feel at home.

This is an oasis of unexpected luxury among the vineyards. The rooms and bathrooms are large and well appointed,. The hosts, Andrew and Nel, live on the premises and Nel does the cooking.

We were warmly welcomed and made very cool and comfortable despite the extreme heat (42 degrees) in Calitzdorp on the day of our visit. Andrew and Nell are expert, professional and friendly hosts. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, the rooms were elegant and well appointed, the garden and views of the vineyards delightful. Couldn't have asked for more.
