Pros: The house is breath-taking. Its completely stunning. The standards are incredibly high.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Their service is personal and very professional. Highly recommended.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Birkenhead house exceeded my expectations in every way! We travel a lot and stay in a lot of hotels, but rarely do they meet or exceed your expectations. Birkenhead house is one of those hotels that is, in our opinion, just perfect in every way. We went there to start our honeymoon in South Africa and were not disappointed. This is our kind of hotel, 5 star service without the pretentiousness. Here you genuinely feel like you are at home. We loved that guest numbers are limited so the hotel is not really busy and you can actually socialise with other guests. Staff were incredible and friendly, where everybody knew your name, likes, dislikes and could not have done more to make us feel comfortable. Whale watching by the pool with a glass of champagne was just incredible and the wine tasting trip was just perfect, our guide was so much fun, relaxed, full of information and could not have done more for us, plus he showed me where to buy the best biltong in town! ;) We cannot wait to return to Birkenhead House!
Cons: That I didn't stay longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Unbelievable staff and service and location and food
Cons: Perfection. Literally.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great size room. Fantastic bed and bedding made for a super comfortable night sleep.
Cons: This is not a negative more of a preference - the guest house was proper which means it is not the kind of place you would go to to relax or spend time at outside of your room at the house and not for kids.
