The rooms were plush and large. Breakfast was sumptuous once again the homemade granola and poached apple superb. The shakshuka poached eggs amazing. Best surprise our car was washed...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 February 2017

the history of this happy family house - especially its conversion into a beautiful boutique hotel - seemed to influence the warmth of welcome and everything that followed. Lovely room with balcony, pool, garden, the conservatory restaurant - breakfast and excellent dinners (the beef - wow!) and wine. But as is often the case, it was the people that made...

We stayed two nights at this country hotel- excellent from the afternoon tea on arrival to the car being washed before we left. We did not eat dinner there as we were recommended to eat at the top rated restaurant in Swellendam- Koornlands which we highly commend. The accommodation and the staff were first class.

A delightful place to stay, from the management, where nothing was too much trouble for them, to the staff that washed the car and everyone in between were such lovely people. Food was superb as was the accomodation, very peaceful. Well done Alison and Richard, your hard work does you both credit! What a find, highly recommended.

We stopped here for a couple of nights traveling from Cape town to Plettenburg along the coast road. It was nice to have a couple of nights in this period property, to look around the historic village and to drive out to Bontebok park; and one night may not do this place justice. The main spacious bedrooms are situated in...
