    We stayed here as part of an itinerary based holiday package. Spectacular scenery. Fantastic food and wine. Although we didn’t realise that we had a certain amount of hospitality credit. This wasn’t initially mentioned on arrival. So paid for some food and wine we needn’t have paid for. Even so We enjoyed the stay ! Very peaceful.

    A really great experience. Not crowded so easy to speak to bird handlers. I was really surprised how many birds and other species they had on site.

    Altogether a wonderful afternoon spent watching these wonderful birds.

    Wow, wow, wow!!! This exceeded our expectations and more!! The staff are friendly and welcoming. We sat outside - thanks to a beautiful Cape Town day and the view is spectactular!! And then the food.... out of this world delicious, perfectly prepared and just the right amount!! Just loved it!! (I am very fussy about good food - hate spending money on mediocre - but this was miles from mediocre!!) Of course, the wines were delicious and a great compliment to the awesome experience! I would highly recommend but remember to book early!

    We visited the winery for a tasting today and had their Icon tasting menu. Three whites and three reds - all home grown. Expertly and professionally introduced by a young man with loads of passion! Super wines and super experience!

    We were just walking around Stellenbosch when we happened upon the Botanical Gardens. We spent a good 2 hours walking around enjoying the plants, gardens and wildlife. We stopped for a coffee in the shade and were really surprised by how fab it was. I would definitely recommend a visit.

    This is a wonderful place that is made even more precious y their staff. Thanks to Dillion and Domnique. All staff took care of our every need, including dropping us off in the town a couple of evenings for dinner. Wine tasting included in the rate was also a great experience. Breakfast includes buffet and a menu for various hot items. The atmosphere and the surrounding are great. Our bathroom floor was heated, and the bathroom has an opaque roof on the top.

    The only minor issues was an exit sign that stayed on at night so the room wasn’t dark enough.

    We flew to Cape Town from Hong Hong Kong and this was one of the highlights. An old friend of mine took us to a surprise location, which turned out to be Stark-Condé. We don't drink, but immensely enjoyed the serenity surrounding the restaurant! The vegan meals we had there were from the top drawer and at a very affordable price (for comparative purposes, the 3 of us all had a big meal with drinks at a lower price than we paid Ocean Basket in Strand). After lunch, we spent several hours walking around at the lake and vineyards, admiring the view and red knobbed coots (see attached pics).

    We had dinner at Claras Barn last night and it was amazing!! We did the wine pairing menu. Every course was absolutely delicious!
    Bianca and Christian were fantastic hosts. Both had an excellent knowledge of the food and wines.
    The decor in the restaurant, which were the old stables was very tastefully done. The setting of the restaurant overlooking the dam with a fantastic sunset view was spectacular!
    I can highly recommend this restaurant for a fantastic dining experience!

    What a wonderful experience at Delheim assisted by August as our Wine Expert. The setting and atmosphere were outstanding.

    The restaurant was an added bonus.

    We arrived to a mysterious misty Villiera wine farm on a cool Saturday morning. We were greeted by warm hosts with bubbles and then wrapped in blankets to find the animals hiding in the mist. The animals were wonderful but what really made this experience stand out was our game ranger, Guillaume. What an interesting man he is. He entertained us with stories, theories, facts and humour. This man was so enchanting that we felt like booking another game drive just to engage with him some more. Guillaume also led us through the wine tasting (the bubbles are delish) to end a wonderful, memorable morning of making memories together with our family and friends.

    We found this special winery through reviews in Trip Advisor. It was worth every one of its 5 stars. We bought a lot of wines and are still enjoying them a week later in Hoedespruit. The service was masterful and the setting perfect. Visit if you are in or near Capetown.

    We enjoyed a delicious wine tasting/cheese board one afternoon here. The views over the vineyard are magical as are the mountains in the distance. The wines were delicious and the service very nice.

    Could only stop for a short while so didn’t experience a full tasting, but we sat on the deck area by the water and enjoyed their Champagne which was lovely.

    Being from Stellenbosch, but currently living in Oman, my husband and I needed the perfect place to celebrate our son’s 21st birthday.

    Muratie was exactly that - the atmosphere in the cellar was warm and cozy, the food and wine an absolute feast. Of course there was the Ben Prins Port! Taking photos with Table mountain in the background - we couldn’t ask for better…

    Lorenzo, Riaan and the friendly staff made us feel welcome with wonderful service and genuine care.

    We had a great time at a great place!

    Thank you Lorenzo and team for giving us a day which we will savour for the rest of our lives.
