Absolutely Luxurious!

Posted Feb 19, 2018
Pros: Everything! It was so perfect!
Cons: Softer bed, updated shower and ironing board in room
Location: Very close to downtown Paarl, the Spice Market winery and Fairview Winery.
We didn't have a hotel for our last night in the wine region and literally booked this hotel at 8pm the morning before we arrived! I wish we would have stayed here all three days we were in the area. The staff was so welcoming and attentive and it was truly world class service. We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and there was a bottle of wine in our room as well. The grounds were amazingly beautiful with the vineyards, mountains and two pools. Spending a few hours by the pool was our highlight. When we asked if it was possible to get an uber to Fairview winery, they insisted that they drive us there complimentary. We got room service (which was great!) but the dinner menu looked amazing as well. Right at sunset, the mountains glow the most wonderful shade of pink and it is such an amazing sight. We stayed in the "Java" duplex and it was huge and very nice. The bed could have been a little softer and the shower was a bit confusing, but those are minor complaints. We didn't find an ironing board in the room, but I'm sure if we would have asked, they would have brought us one. Overall, this place was so beautiful and luxurious and the staff was incredible. I only regret that we didn't have more time here! It was the nicest place we stayed in all of South Africa.

Great country hotel in the wine lands.

Posted May 26, 2015
Pros: It is a luxury experience and the setting is amazing. Go for a terrace suite.
Cons: The Internet can be choppy at times.
Location: Try out the spice route and the Terra Mare restaurant that is walking distance from the hotel and the other wine estates in the area.
It was our 20th wedding anniversary and it was epic. The welcome was so warm and the staff took care of our every need. They made our anniversary so special with rose petals on our table for dinner and on our return to our room we found a bottle of champagne and rose petals all over our suite. I would highly recommend this luxury hotel.

Anniversary weekend

Posted May 2, 2015 on Hotels
We spent our anniversary weekend there and the hotel staff went out of there way to make our time there that much more special. The restaurant staff were most courteous and special mention for one of the waiters by the name of Anwar- his warm and friendly demeanour was most appreciated. All in all a lovely place to set up base when enjoying the beautiful Paarl region.
