This hotel is in Stellenbosch and about 20 minutes from the airport. The venue is beautiful, tranquil and ideal for a relaxing break from the hum drum outside.

We spent 10 nights here. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we had excellent service in the restaurants and bar. We eat in both restaurants and the food was great.
