Comfortable room and beautiful view from dining room. Loved the idea of removing the mini bar items to make space for local produce. Some issues with the heating/air con in the room.

Room was clean, comfortable and we had an incredible view of the vineyards. The hotel is very close to town and many good wineries. Our only disappointment was the restaurant. We booked the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary however there was a larger table there on the night who were extremely loud and unpleasant, it was more like a local pub full of drunks then a fine dining restaurant. I was surprised it was allowed as it was bothering so many other guests. We would stay again but recommend eating out at one of the wineries.
