Roughly half and hour drive from the international airport the estate hotel is friendly and extremely relaxing. The service is topnotch and the food of high quality. Breakfast in particular is fantastic. It's the best buffet scrambled egg I have ever tasted. It remains moist and delicious. If you want a different egg option just ask. Rooms are fairly large....

Our stay was super comfortable, relaxed, and by and large, the service we received from the hotel staff was impeccable. The rooms are not modern, but everything works perfectly and was clean (except for 2 towels that we asked housekeeping to change). Great location for visiting the wine farms in the area and for an awesome round of golf at...
