It's only day 2 of this spa being opened here. I'm not going to mark them down for stuff that are easy to fix like the heating (seriously it's cold). The therapists are skilled and friendly and just amazing. Spent most of the day here and I feel absolutely amazing.

Stayed here with nomad. Was a bit away from the areas we wanted to visit but we enjoyed our stay. Comfortable clean rooms. Lots of hot water. Good television selection. Wifi variant service. Great breakfast buffet. Our included meals were also quite good. Lean wine selection. Didn't have time to try the golf course

However, we were promptly seated and looked after by Zanele who made...

Booked 4 nights here in the Honeymoon Suite. Have been married more years than I care to remember but thought this suite sounded nice as it had a verandah (which the others did not have) and looked out onto part of golf course. We arrived late Sunday afternoon and like previous reviewer were told no dinner served on a Sunday...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and on the whole enjoyed our stay. We chose Monks Cowl as it offered good value for money and is in a central location to visit the attractions in Champagne Valley. Accommodation: When we arrived we were well greeted and shown our room. The rooms are big and spacious and have...
