We stayed at the Mo & Rose for two nights on our travels in South Africa and were pleased to discover this hidden treasure. The host was warm and friendly, and offered us drinks straight away, so we sat and enjoyed a great bottle of wine in the beautiful little restaurant with views of the mountains and of the stunning Cactus Garden. The rooms are situated on the other side of the garden, which is lovely to walk through. We were shown to our room, which was spacious, airy and light, and furnished to a high standard (one of the few places where the website pictures are an accurate depiction of the real thing!), and each room has a little sort of sheltered patio with chairs and furnishings, which is lovely for evening drinks or enjoying the morning sun. There is a small outdoor pool, which was clean and laid out nicely with loungers alongside, and again with unfettered views of the mountains all around.
The service is first rate and the setting is ideal, Mo & Rose feels very exclusive due to its small size, so privacy is provided and it never feels too busy. Monika was so friendly and helpful, making so much effort to advise and help plan any activities, pointing out great locations/walks etc, and nothing was too much trouble. The Mo & Rose is situated in the Robertson Wine Valley, so there are some great places for tasting and some beautiful mountain walks too.
