A really unique and original convent. Still in its original bathrooms with tan vintage flair. Everything is clean and tidy.

Character filled and in a beautiful setting.

Pros: Great service and surrounds
Cons: The only thing was the shower over the bath, a bit of a struggle if you were a person of a certain age with not much mobility.
Location: Great location for a lot of the wineries. We went to a concert held at a winery close by, just walking distance from the hotel, easy!
We chose this hotel as it was close to many wineries we were interested in visiting. Also we were attending a concert close by. It was a terrific hotel, excellent staff, very helpful. I am a keen photographer so the gardens and bird life were a pleasant addition.

Ambience, attentiveness, mood, just everything that pops into your mind around a place called the Convent. Recommend the Superior room with the King size bed and small sunroom off the bedroom. Beautiful.
