We stayed 2 nights at Keren's vine and our room was "Twin Peaks" (all rooms have the names of surrounding mountains and each is different), nice design, very tastefully decorated and furnished (dark wood) with a balcony and a view of the mountain, the garden and the pool. The bathroom was beautiful too, and we liked the rooibos toiletries. Everything is very modern, new and clean (you can tell the owners are German! :-) )
Breakfast was good and plentiful. The place is quiet, but to get to the city center you do need a car.
The hosts give excellent advice on where to go for lunch, dinner and wine tasting.
The prices for the drinks (you take them yourself in the living room and they trust you to write down what you consume) were cheap, which was a nice surprise. All in all, a great experience, and a nice place from which to explore the wine country.
