We stayed here for two nights, it is well positioned to visit Paarl and also Stellenbosh. It is near a Farm so remember this when booking. They do breakfast but always check if they are going to serve dinner. Well stocked bar. In this are most places close early at night so remember to book a restaurant if you wish...

We were hosting a workshop and we needed internet connection to facilitate breakaway discussions. Wifi connection was so poor that it was virtually useless.

Customer service bad. Will...

I stayed at this venue overnight for a wedding and selected it due for the swimming pool and breakfast, which I felt would be nice to enjoy the following day. We checked in and everything seemed fine. When I woke up the next morning our bathroom was flooded and there was brown water in the bath. When flushing the toilet...

Great for touring the Wine Route. Near all the wine estates. Stellenbosch and Franschoek few minutes drive. Simonsberg Cheese factory also withing few kilometres. Hospitable staff, amazing service! Real value for money! Making a return in December 2013 to visit Spice Route and savour the grest cuisine and wines.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a conference. I would rate the rooms,bathrooms, food and conference facilities way below the 3 stars that they have been graded by the Tourism Office . The property is naturally stunning but the buildings are in a state of neglect. The food was below average and I was tempted to drive to the nearby...
