Stunning. Quite simply, one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at in my life, irrelevant of cost.
The hotel is immaculate, and the architecture of both the main building and adjoined winery is delicate yet bold. Staff on the desk were welcoming and fluent in English, and couldn't do enough for me.
The room itself was seriously impressive, and the fixtures and fittings of the very highest quality. Very modern, but not at all cold.
As for the food, I have never tasted anything finer anywhere. The chefs are wonderfully creative, and everything was cooked to perfection. Very creative in their use of flavours (white chocolate, lavender and oxtail anyone?), and perfectly presented. Both dinner and breakfast were of the highest quality.
I did not have as long to spend there as I would've liked, and so will definitely have to make a return trip if for no other reason than to tour the winery. The house wine I sampled at dinner makes that a no-brainer!
