An excellent and efficient welcome, perfect room, delightful stay. Breakfast top class and all top standard throughout. We particularly liked the overall impression of a professionally run establishment where nothing would be too much trouble. Host made helpful suggestions and booked our restaurant which was great.

Had an overnight stay. The place is well maintained and clean. Booked the Rhino room which surpassed my expectations. The room size and bathroom were big enough. Breakfast was excellent as there was enough variety to choose from. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a nice quiet spot near the winelands.

This place is very popular due to the great hosts. Hence, I could only fetch the smallest room available which is OK really for a night. Somerset West good place to stay on your way to then stay nearer to the winelands though Ernie Els or Guardians's Peak only 5 km away.

Mark and Claudia are amazing hosts and have created a place of idyllic peace and beauty. The property, with rose gardens and a "to-die-for"view of the coast is well kept and beautifully maintained. They were so very helpful and easy to communicate with. Look forward to a return visit!
