4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Overall a nice hotel in a beautiful setting. Our room was a little grubby. The bathroom bin hadn’t been emptied from previous use and didn’t get emptied on a daily basis. The coffee wasn’t replenished on a daily service either. For the price you pay you would expect these things to be done. The restaurant food was good but the service there a little bit hit and miss. Got our starters before our drinks then waited over an hour for our mains. All that aside I would stay again.

Fantastic stay, very relaxing. Very helpful staff. Dinner at the estate was good value. Winery tasting good and informative. A little disappointed places are closed for sight seeing in mid May. Views amazing.

ManySPIDERS & a threat to bill you if the AC fails

Spider’s, lots of them. I squished about 40 spiders before we cold go to bed and we turned the bedding around so our heads would be far away from the wall with spiders. We called the off site staffs phone number for some help with this issue. We were told that there was some bug spray in the room, but none was found. In the morning we spoke to with reception staff about the spiders and the general lack of cleanliness of the room. We were told that the room would cleaned and spider free when we returned in the evening. Upon our return there was a very strong insecticide smell in the room so we decided that it would not be safe to sleep in the room and checked out. And here is something I have never seen before in the hospitality industry, there was a sign posted above the thermostat threatening to bill you if their air conditioner failed while you were there as a paying guest.
