2/10 Poor

Full review is on trip advisor & 25 minutes of great videos showing the Flooding on their Facebook page. Email via their website ahead of arrival 3 messages enquiring/ asking details. Management No response. Arrive as Honeymooners to a wilting rose & Welcome Mr & Mrs Garnett. (we are 2 men). Management (a lady called Tess) was so laid back seemed like she was a guest there rather than a worker. When I told her we had booked Simons as we had not heard back from them. She basically dissed simons stating I have a booking at the Open Door a much better option, turned out it was closed on Sundays. Night 3 at 10pm ceiling starts flooding water through light fittings. Management gone home already! Summoned only remaining staff Tom who arrives with 2 buckets & says will get it sorted in morning. Insist he goes call someone as water now pouring in & down walls ( no rooms above ). Another lady arrives immediately realises seriousness of situ. Scrambles our belongings into our 2 cases and moves us. Says will turn water off in morning. Barely slept worrying about ongoing water & electrics. This guest house boasts 5 stars & an exclusive in house chauffeur service. We were asked if we wanted them to take us to dinner each night. On leaving FULL 5 NIGHTS BILLED! Plus £40 billed for taxi in house transfers to nearby restaurants. Owner WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR! REFUSED TO COME & DISCUSS BUT ACTING MANAGER SAM RAN BACK & FORTH. 25 mins later paid in full. The Last Time. 5 star , attention to detail

8/10 Very good

Luxury boutique hotel in an amazing garden
This luxury boutique hotel is just down the road from some of the most famous vineyards in Constantia. It is just off the main road but you are not disturbed by it at all. Rooms are huge and have an open bathroom and all have a living area too. The best part is that all rooms face out to the most amazing garden with so many different species of plants and flowers. The pool area is a haven to admire them and relax. Breakfast has something for everyone. Free wi-fi and drinks.
