One thing that truly stood out from our stay at The Cellars Hohenort, was the decadence when it came to wining and dining! We happened to stay there over my husbands birthday and so we were surprised with birthday-bubbles and sweet treats over breakfast!
The salmon and avo omelette was hands down the best omelette I’ve had.I ended up ordering it 2 days in a row. Light, fluffy and creamy with the most beautiful salmon – no skimping on the filling either! The cuppa was incredibly delicious too.
A high-tea after my own heart! A Low Carb High-Tea which was delicious. From delicate, vietnamese, rice-paper rolls filled with prawns to muesli bars drizzled in dark chocolate (I could have eaten a whole tray of those!) and a light, moist carrot cake.
How darling are the little duck biscuits that come with your tea or coffee.
I’ve been dreaming of going back for this high tea again. How awesome to feast, guilt free! And then, there was more Salmon! How pretty is this plating, my starter at dinner! They are currently running a 2 or 3 course dinner special at their The Conservatory Restaurant.

A trip to Fresh Wellness Spa is a must while staying at The Cellars Hohenort, or for an afternoon pamper before visiting for High Tea. (Now that would be a great Girls-Day-Out!) My husband had an excellent massage and said he actually fell asleep. I had a luminating, Barbor facial including a facial peel which left my skin feeling incredibly smooth and plumped. The facial peel tingled ever so slightly and I loved the feeling of something actually working on my skin. I was advised to use a mask at home over the next day or two as your skin just absorbs so much more product after a peal, maximizing your product! The head massage I received while the Barbor chemical peel worked its magic, was out of this world.. after a glass of bubbly at breakfast – I was floating on some super-happy, puffy white clouds. Find their spa menu here.
I was super impressed with Elouise at “Hair By Elouise“. Wow, this girl knows her stuff! It was like everything just fell into place and she just got me!
Hair, post incredible head massage at Fresh Wellness and before Elouise got her scissors stuck in. Very Sonic the hedgehog 🙂
After: And I’m super stoked with it! This cut is so fuss free and easy to manage – a touch of wax and I’m ready to go.
A huge thank you to both Hair By Elouise & Well Freshness for my renewed & revived hair & skin.I’ll definitely be back for another boost! What an awesome stay all together in an oasis of spoils!
