Bass Provence was a little charm of paradise tucked away in the vineyards off the main street leading into down in town. Our time there was made perfect by all the touches in the room like the welcome wine and wonderful breakfast. We truly wish we had more time to spend and stay here. What a memorable part to our...

For some reason we did not realise that there are only three bedrooms in the hotel, but that made it even better. It is basically an historic farmhouse and we had the run of the place for the four nights we stayed. Decanters of port and sherry were placed in the huge sitting room and we could sample as much...

My parents and I finished the Garden route spending 4 nights here. It's a lovely old Dutch Manor House adjacent to the winery and Paulina's restaurant. There are 3 spacious suites, with the thatch roof newly done.

You would have noticed a previous post from me regarding shocking service we received at Paulina’s, Rickety Bridge. Well after some argy bargy and misunderstandings between myself and management (as you will see in the previous review), they kindly offered us a weekend in their Manor House so that we could experience the hospitality that, according to them, we should...

Small B& B with lots of character. Very friendly, helpful staff and comfortable, clean room the only thing lacking was a shower. Short drive from the town with lovely outlook. Walking distance from Rickety Bridge vineyard.

A good stay. Very helpful front desk. The breakfast, lunch and dinner hampers are excellent to enjoy in the quiet of your own lodge. There's plenty of nice walks to be done around the farm and a useful wildlife guide available from reception.
