We were invited by close friends of ours to celebrate their 70th birthdays at this Estate. The function took the form of a picnic with baskets of foods of our choice plus a bottle of wine. Absolutely stunning venue for any function of this kind.

The Pinotage was really good, we did a wine tasting, they even have a port. Lunch was the highlight, the staff were great, service was very good and lunch was good! Steak... More

Lovely wine estate with restaurant, wine tasting, coffee shop and attractive buildings. We opted for wine tasting with a very tasty platter of food for two. Wine selection was good, loved their Port and Sauvignon Blanc. Beautiful day, sitting outside with a few more wine tasters..

We stopped off at Morgenhof for a light lunch and a cool drink on a very hot day. The chicken salad and deep fried feta salad starters were both delicious and good value. The staff were very friendly and service was excellent.

The wine tasting was enjoyable and the setting is lovely. The underground cellar is impressive - one of only 4 in the world. Separate glasses for water and some crackers would have improved the experience. We did not stay for a meal but the restaurant and tables in the gardens did look inviting.

We booked to stay in the manor house over the weekend and we were very disappointed with the condition of the room. The bedding all seemed very old and worn. The bathroom has no shower and the spa bath did not work at all. Furthermore, there was no soap provided. On the other hand, the breakfast was substantial and tasty.... More
