They are serious about providing you with all the attention you may need in a caring, informal and warm setting.
There are a total of 13 bedrooms each individually decorated to a high standard. Each room has air-conditioning, bar fridges, satellite television. dressing gowns and complimentary port. Welgelegen provides a delicious breakfast, and whilst it does not provide dinner options your hosts will make dinner reservations on your behalf at any number of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
