Luxury with a personal touch
We slept over at Villa Exner because we were attending a concert in the area. We got back late from the concert, a little bit hungry. The kitchen was already closed but the hotel staff offered to organise a cold platter for us to snack on. It came beautifully presented with smiles, courtesy and pots of tea and coffee. So refreshing to see this passion for the job, where too often staff is unhelpful. Our room was super-luxurious with a palatial bathroom, dressing room and the bedroom overlooked nearby vineyards.
