We needed a break but it turned out to be more stress. We booked the Dennisten Room but got to stay in the Brown Room which was an overnight room.

Check in should be before 17h00 as gates closes at 19h00. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we could not make it for 17h00 and I contacted the Guest House at 15h00 to make arrangements. On arrival, we collected the keys as per arrangement with Marisa and luckily it was before 19h00 and the gates were still open. We were the only guests. Very scary. One chair in the room. I could help myself at the honesty bar to a bottle of wine. Must admit, the wine was good. Wine was on the floor, no table. Had to do makeup in the bathroom all steaming up. My blow dryer was on the coffee station as that was the only plug near to a mirror. We left after breakfast. Upon our return, our room was not serviced. Bed was not made. Dirty towels still in the bathroom. No clean towels. The next day there were quite a few people checking in only to overnight. They received the suites. When I eventually got to see Marisa as we were checking out, she did not apologise. Her excuse: The rooms were all the same size. That was not what I saw. The feedback to my booking agent was; I did not contact her to make arrangements and therefore she thought we were not coming anymore. However, I was offered a free wine tasting or a bottle of wine delivered to my home. Regarding the cleaning; they do not go into guests' room because not everybody trusts strangers to go into their room. But they refilled the coffee and the curtains were open.

'n Heerlike ervaring.

Die woning, slaapkamer en badkamer, geriewe en tuine was werklik baie mooi en gerieflik. Die gasvryheid en ontbyt was besonder genotvol. Aangesien ons op 'n Maandagaand oorgeslaap het, was aandete en 'n wynproe nie beskikbaar nie. Ons sal graag wil teruggaan wanneer dit wel moontlik is.

A wonderful experience.

The house, bedroom and bathroom, facilities and gardens were really very beautiful and comfortable. The hospitality and breakfast were particularly enjoyable. As we slept over on a Monday night, dinner and a wine tasting were not available. We would love to go back when it is possible.

Pragtige omgewing met gasvryheid uit die boonste rakke.

Mens kan net jou verlustig in die mooi tuin uitgetooi in helder herfskleure. Die woonhuis is besonders: groot stoep, gesellige kuierruimte met kaggelvuur en al. Bonus vir ons toe die wynmaker inloer en met ons 'n glasie wyn deel. Ruim kamer en badkamer, skoon en netjies. Heerlike ontbyt. Die personeel, Audrey en Marthie, asook Peter is besonderse mense, vriendelik en behulpsaam. Marisa is 'n bekwame bestuurder wat mens laat tuis voel en niks is vir haar moeite nie. Geluk met die huishouding en goeie span!

Beautiful surroundings with top notch hospitality.

One can only delight in the beautiful garden decked out in bright autumn colors. The house is special: large porch, cozy living room with fireplace and all. Bonus for us when the winemaker stopped by and shared a glass of wine with us. Spacious room and bathroom, clean and tidy. Delicious breakfast. The staff, Audrey and Marthie, as well as Peter are exceptional people, friendly and helpful. Marisa is a competent manager who makes you feel at home and nothing is too much trouble for her. Congratulations on the household and good team!

A home away from home.

One of the best places we have ever been to, the hosts at the house and tasting were amazing and made the guests feel very comfortable. The food at the wine tasting, Manor House and breakfast were incredible. Great value for money and lots to do. Will certainly return.

Lekker, vriendelik en netjies

Nog voor my aankoms het ek welkom gevoel omdat die eienaar ’n boodskap met ’n kaart gestuur het. Die Country House is baie netjies en die personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Alles wat enigiemand nodig het en nog meer, regtig ’n baie aangename ervaring. Die pizzaria en wynproe lokaal is reg langs die huis en alles was net so lekker daar. Vir seker ’n moet. Ek sal sonder twyfel teruggaan Elgin Vintners toe! Baie waarde vir geld!

Nice, friendly and neat

Even before my arrival I felt welcome because the owner sent a message with a card. The Country House is very tidy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Everything anyone needs and more, really a very pleasant experience. The pizzaria and wine tasting venue is right next to the house and everything was just as good there. A must for sure. I will go back to Elgin Vintners without a doubt! Great value for money!

What a wonderful stay we had. The attention to detail from Casper and his team was amazing.

We even had a 3-course dinner specially prepared for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. So much to do on this farm, we will definitely be back to experience it again. Thank you to Hein at the wine tasting venue. Great selections of wines, served with delicious pizza and lovely gardens for the kids to play while the adults sat back and relaxed by the warm fire.

Spesiale bederftyd.

Ek was so verras deur die vriendelikheid van Francois, Jolene en Loretta. Niks was te veel moeite nie. Sondagoggend het Jolene spesiaal vroeg ingekom om vir my 'n heerlike ontbyt te maak aangesien ek reeds 8 uur wou ry om Krimifees-praatjie by te woon. Die kamer is pragtig en die beddegoed silwerskoon en geurig. Vars blommetjies laat jou spesiaal welkom voel.

Special treat time.

I was so surprised by the kindness of Francois, Jolene and Loretta. Nothing was too much trouble. On Sunday morning Jolene came in especially early to make me a delicious breakfast as I already wanted to drive 8 hours to attend Krimifees talk. The room is beautiful and the bedding spotless and fragrant. Fresh flowers make you feel especially welcome.

Dit was asemrowend.

Net die plek as jy bietjie rustigheid en skoonheid van natuur wil geniet. Dis definitief 'n lekke slaapplekkie. Weg van die stad se woel en gedruis. Geriewe is van die beste.

Just the place if you want to enjoy some peace and beauty of nature. It's definitely a nice place to sleep. Away from the city's hustle and bustle. Amenities are some of the best.
