We recently spent three nights at Springfontein Sleeps, which we very much enjoyed. The Cottage was spacious and had some very nice touches, like beautiful, unusual South African made cotton towels and interesting art work. However, it would only take the installation of a permanent overhead fan and slightly more superior bedding to turn this into a much more sophisticated experience. All the staff were delightful - friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were first rate.

Very nicely appointed with comfortable bed and very clean however could hear people in adjoining cottage through the thin walls. Also had no tea replaced on 2nd night and would have appreciated a phone to reception as this would have alleviated the problem. Disappointing WiFi in most areas and had to sit in the office for reception! Would also have appreciated some comfortable outdoor seating to relax on instead of hard dining chairs

We had one night here after a dinner at Springfontein Eats. The whole estate is a large area, you will have to walk some minutes from the central building where the wine tasting and the restaurant are located. In our small house in a cottage style were two big rooms, one with a small kitchen area, living room and an open-hearth fireplace, the other one with a kind of en-suite bedroom, bathroom with shower, tube and toilet. Outdoor shower as well as a terrace with fine view on the whole area, a swimming pool ca 50 ft away. We slept very well, but around 5 a.m. the nature wakes up with birds, squirrel or monkeys, and you become aware that you are in the middle of nature. No problem for us, but we did not like this en-suite arrangement because it allows you also to hear every sound even caused by your partner‘s manifestations of live... Everything worked in the facility, so nothing to worry about. Breakfast next morning was fine, you will have it in the restaurant. Coming back? Maybe, but not in that cottage.

We booked for 2-nights. It could be the little or no hot water in River 1 Lodge during our stay, which coloured our judgement but unfortunately this was not a good experience. Springfontein Sleeps has a number of positives. Set in a wonderful location with good friendly staff, what could possibly go wrong? The problem as far as we were concerned was Susanne, the Manager. Any small criticism/observation was met with a very hostile response. Susanne worked on the basis, "A German Family stayed in River 1 the week before & had a lovely time", so our comments were of no relevance. Was her overt hostility because we are English? Possibly, but we departed with the distinct impression, only Germans' need apply....

We booked a two night stay in one of the suites in riverside cottage. When we arrived, the very friendly staffmember brought us to our suite. At least, that is what he told us. When we compared the room we were in to the pictures on the website, we saw no resemblance. We went back to the office, where we were told that a mistake had been made: a double booking. They asked us to be so kind to stay for one night in the (much cheaper) suite we were brought to (in another guesthouse). The second night we could stay in the suite we had booked. No explanation why they did not tell us that right away, though. If we had not found out ourselves about the mistake, no one would have told us and we would have paid the full amount for a cheaper room.
They offered us the first night for free as a compensation. We reluctantly accepted the offer, because we had no where else to go for the night.
When we checked out after the two night stay, the invoice indeed showed only one night, which we payed.
We were astonished when we got back home and saw that they had also deducted the first night from our credit card! Despite several attempts to get in contact with them about this, they never replied to our mails and never transferred the money back to us.
These people seem so nice, but are a bunch of crooks, liars and thieves. Be aware!

We booked the Fishermans cottage for a night stay. Not really what i imagined when i was looking through the website pictures. The Fishermans cottage description on the website says historic cottage renovated to offer all the comforts of the modern world in a romantic one-room unit. To start off with you have a beautiful fireplace to look at when lying in bed but the mattress is worn out. The place also need a good fumigate, fish moths everywhere! You cant really make use of the patio, it is in full sun, with no umbrella and the patio furniture literally falls apart. With no divider to the side people at the restaurant look out on your patio. Not very private, unless you don't mind your view to be people eating at the main building. The bathroom is beautiful though and the staff is friendly.

Springfontein is a beautiful secluded wine farm with various buildings. We had booked the Fisherman’s Cottage which is either 1 minute drive away from the main house or a few minutes to walk (very safe). The cottage has stunning views across the river and mountains and is very peaceful, perfect for a romantic get-away.
The cottage itself is large, with a very good bed and modern bathroom. It is however quite simple, not very fancy or overly luxurious, which is reflected in the good price. The terrace is pretty but sadly not facing the view or the sunshine. An extension of the terrace and a few deck chairs would have made a big difference for us. Also we did not have internet connection anywhere on the farm except the wifi at the main house...actually quite good for us to switch off.
Springfontain Eats is an amazing restaurant with outstanding food and service, and the adjacent wine bar is also very cozy and offers more simple food as well.
I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for great food, peaceful surroundings and beautiful landscapes!

Spending two nights in Springfontein‘s Riverside Lodge we again felt very home from home, enjoying peace and quiet away from any urban hustle and bustle, with beautiful views over Klein River Valley and walks along Walker Bay at daytime, and deep sleeps at night.

We will be back.

We expected the accommodation to be near the restaurant and other Springfontein buildings but it was far enough away (less than 1km) for a drive to the restaurant to be the best option!

There seemed to be other rooms available in the building but we had it to ourselves. Private pool - much too cold to use - and fabulous views over the fields and out to the mountains.

No wifi, either in accommodation or in the main buildings

We had the milkwood cottage which has a lounge with a fireplace. My young adult children had suite no 2 which has a fireplace in the bedroom & their own private pool. There are only 5 types of accommodation on this wine farm. The rooms are all extremely modern with underfloor heating and stunning bathrooms. The setting was beautiful as there was nothing around you. They supply torches which gives one an idea of how isolated you are. Loved waking up & sitting on the chair watching the sunrise over the hills & listening/watching the abundance of birds. Unfortunately we did not experience Springfontein Eats as they were closed for their annual vacation.
