9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were all so wonderfully friendly and efficient. Porché and Sunette at reception were an absolute dream and so accommodating. We traveled with a small baby and they ensured everything was seamless for us helping us to settle in the evenings with minimal fuss. We got a beautiful upgrade to a stunning room with our own pool which was incredible with the baby also. The room, views and pool were stunning. Breakfast delightful and everyone so warm and friendly. Really enjoyable few days. Well located close to Tokara and Delaire also for nice lunches and wine tastings

Cons: My only disappointment (although well handled by management when communicated) was the following : Room cleaning was very below par and did not leave a good impression. Things which could.make it even better : Train your room cleaning staff to serve/service(it felt like they are doing the breakfast service as well) Get staff on ear pieces for their radio chat... as a guest you hear it all otherwise.

Cons: We didn’t like that the hotel charges for the ammenities (soap, shampoo, etc) that are left in the room. It’s not a cheap hotel, so it’s absolutely unnecessary and unpolite to leave such a message in the room.
1.0 Poor
Pros: The view and amenities were great
Cons: - staff was cold, disinterested and unprofessional - there was no concierge - there was no willingness to assist me in my queries - we had dinner at the restaurant (it's a wine farm) and the waiter couldn't tell us a single thing about any of the wines - when asked about the sommelier, he apparently wasn't around either - as I was about to leave my room for check out. They called me at 11:01. A literal minute after check time. I have never felt so unwelcome at any hotel, never mind a "5 star" establishment
8.2 Excellent
Pros: The location; The room decoration, facilities and size. Staff always ready to help.
Cons: Our room (number 2??) was in the 1st level of a building far away from the reception, restaurant and hotel entrance. To reach it you have to climb a very steep staircase with very high steps. For someone over 70 this is a big inconvenience. In fact, it seems this no place for people with walking difficulties. Lots of stairs are the rule. It must be said that the staff are always ready to help. But even so...

Thank you for all your kindness Penelope- I do hope our paths may cross again.
