    Exceptional 10,0
    A little gem in an exceptional setting.
    This is a very comfortable guest house with all modern facilities in a beautiful setting. Our room, only a standard, was spacious, as was the bathroom with a large terrace with views of the surrounding mountains. A walk into town but worth it to enjoy its lovely setting.

    Fair 4,0
    Serious security issue and leaks
    Booked 7 nights. On the second night a stranger unlocked the room door at midnight and walked in with his suitcase. It turned out that the room key is the same as the key to the courtyard with a swimming pool and available to everyone. This made us feel very unsafe. On top of that the bathroom shower leaked twice in the evening making the bathroom unusable until the next day and room floor wet. Ended up trying to capture escaping water for hours. In the end checked out 2 days before the end of the trip. Sadly was offered a substitute accommodation too late - only when we were already packed and waiting for a taxi to take us to a newly booked place. No refunds provided! No sorry message...

    A Great Spot in The Wine Region
    From the start, we had very friendly service and were greeted with sparkling wine! The view from the upstairs room is incredible and the pool/patio are a great place to relax after a day of travel or visiting vineyards. Breakfast was also very good with both cold and hot options (including warm croissants). Definitely recommend!

    Great place to stay
    Lovely place and our room was fantastic. Greeted with a glass of fizz and a bottle of wine in the fridge in the room too. Breakfast was great each day and the staff all fantastic. Thanks for having us.
