In the very pretty heart of the Breede river valley, also known as the valley of wine and roses, smack in the middle of Route 62 with the Robertson wine valley right on your doorstep, this popular little town adds 5 star luxury and culinary bliss to it’s already full bill of attractions.
The Robertson small hotel is hidden away in the leafy suburbs of Robertson.
Situated in and around a grandiose old Victorian Manor House (dating back to 1910),its easy to miss if you are looking for what usually constitutes a ‘hotel’.
A haven of tranquility sitting in a beautifully manicured garden – and with only 10 luxurious suites available in the 3 different buildings gracing the grounds, they make sure they will be able to cater to your every need, allowing you complete relaxation and ultimate comfort in the lush surroundings. Furnished in a modern contemporary style, the feel is luxuriously crisp and clean, complemented by rich textures and a permeating warm ambiance that will have you feeling queen (or king) of this castle.
Have a drink in the classy bar lounge, or a sundowner on the beautiful wraparound verandah of the historic Manor House, then head over to the state-of-the-art cellar to hand-pick your wine before settling down in the easy atmosphere of the elegant Reuben’s restaurant and courtyard.
Executive chef Emile Fortuin, protégée of famous chef Reuben Riffel keeps standards high with his locally sourced seasonal menu. Reuben’s signature dishes like Pork belly and Chili squid is ever-present, but the menu is further enhanced by Fortuin’s innovative and flavourful combinations. The result is deliciously unpretentious dining in a setting that is lavishly unhurried and serene.
With 2 shimmering pools, a wellness room and the baby brother of the acclaimed Reuben’s restaurant family as part of the package, you are certainly not left wanting. Service is exceptional and carried out with a genuine generosity and good cheer that makes this world-class experience refreshingly unique.
The Robertson Small Hotel was voted Best Country Luxury Hotel in South Africa at the 2011 World Luxury Hotel Awards.
