We spent a night in the Garden suite room which was clean & comfortable.
Arrive in the bfast room. NO clean tables or even set. All tables dirty & used. Not a staff member insight to help. We took odd utensils left on the dirty tables to create our own "set" table. Eventually we had to walk upstairs into the kitchen to call for help.
A lady came to tell us what we can order but she was totally inappropriately dressed to work with food or guests.
Eventually the manageress on duty arrived & we kindly commented on the lack of a clean set table & assistance. She told us that other guests ate earlier but no apology for not re-setting one table for us plus it was still one hour before bfast ends.
The previous night the owner told us that we cannot miss their very special bfast, it is a must!
Well, it was overcooked, dry bacon, oily fried eggs and slices of raw tomato & cucumber. No freshly baked items, just bread from the shop. The view we got from the area where the food was prepared and the ladies.... made me lost my appetite completely.
NEVER again --- very very poorly trained staff!!!

Stayed: March 2016

The hotel was built by a German many years ago. It was called Berghof ............

The place is under new ownership which seems to struggle to get things right. The rooms are big and comfortable, however the en-suite bathroom is totally outdated! Currently you only watch local TV channels, which is a bummer if you are a business traveler.
The towels are so hard that you can use them to massage your skin. Breakfast was up to standard.
The check-out procedure was rather lengthy, it took forever to print an invoice and it was suggested to the owner to invest in a new computer system.
The price for a standard room was totally over the top. R720 for one night including breakfast. Seems they want to recover their investment in a hurry. Good B&B's in Paarl go for about R200 (+/-) and there is nothing special to the hotel that would justify this price.

Room Tip: Would not go there again

Not a hotel. Just a dodgy room. It's an ugly building that smells of smoke and the furniture is terrible and lights don't work and bathroom was an 80s pink disaster and I could go on but it's not worth it

I only stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip, and when I got there I was quite impressed. It is located on top of a hill so once you find it, it has a stunning view. The room I stayed in (#18) was pretty big, with a lounge area and separate bedroom. After hearing a colleague complain about the place, I started noticing room for improvement. The bathroom is quite old, which is not a problem if everything is in a good condition, but the tub-shower-combo is a problem. As with most of them, 90% of the water ends up on the floor after taking a shower. The lounge area is nice, but this means that there is no TV inside the bedroom, which is nice for business trips. There were nothing in the mini bar, not even a still water in the room. When we went to the bar, they didn't have any water available, which explains the lack of water in the rooms. They were very low in alcoholic beverages as well, which is disappointing as they are centrally located and could have easily stocked up. It is really not bad, clean, comfortable rooms and quite good service, but I think they have the potential to be great. Not a cozy, romantic boutique hotel at all.

Room Tip: Apparently some rooms are super small with showers only. Perhaps ask for a room in the main building.

We booked in Nov 2014 for one night stay over after a show. Show was cancelled and in January 2015 the Hotel promised to pay back our deposit because the booking was only for April. Several emails and phonecalls later haven't received our money. The manager is NEVER at work? Either they dont care about customers or they are just not reliable people! I will never go there or refer somebody!!! NEVER NEVER
