We got married at Zonnevanger Wedding Venue and booked the Guesthouse for our immediate family for 2 days. The Guesthouse itself is so beautiful and very very neat and we loved that the rooms were themed. The breakfast was great value for money and the Service was exceptional - Thank you to Hennie and his Team. We loved that we had such a beautiful and breathtaking view. The property itself is so so beautiful. Our wedding Guest could not stop talking about how beautiful it is. I would highly recommend the wedding Venue and Guest House to anyone. My husband and I are definitely looking to going back.

We were going to attend a wedding on Wellington's side of Paarl, and decided to look for a place to stay close by. I am so glad we found the Zonnevanger Venue & Guesthouse. It was affordably priced, safe and our room was just big enough for a over-night stay, but they do have larger rooms available if you want to stay longer. This would also be a great option if you are looking to do some wine tastings in the area as there are great farms close by and for those hot days they also have a pool to cool off in. Our stay was very comfortable, the owner was very friendly and the location is great. This is definitely a place you need to add to your list of possible accommodations in the area.

Our stay at Zonnevanger was very pleasant. There was no need to go to reception upon arrival and the fact that everything was electronic was so quick and easy and there was minimal contact with people which is great during the Corona pandemic we are currently experiencing. The service and breakfast were great. The only downside was that the water for bathing was sometimes cold in the morning. We will definitely visit Zonnevanger again and canvass for it. A stay worth every penny. A huge thank you to Hennie for being so accommodating during our stay.

The facilities were generally neat, with visble signs of ageing to furniture. Emptying of the drains located in front of the rooms during the visit was not so pleasant. The food quality matched the price paid for. The front gate did not open fully upon arrival, but it was attended to the the following day. Beautiful nature (vinyards and mountains) surroundings. Friendly staff. Overall contend with the service.

I booked and paid for 5 people and then 2 of the adults had to sleep on a sleeper sofa which was really not comfortable. I had to make the couch myself and there was no sheet or pillows for the couch, just a thin blanket and duvet. It was bitterly cold that night and there were no extra blankets in the closet, except for the sofa. So we all slept cold that night.
The message we got the afternoon explicitly said NO PETS and the people who stayed next to as had 2 small dogs and when ever we went to get things from the car the dogs wanted to bite us.
The toilet and bathroom not being closed all the way to the top made it very uncomfortable.

The night before and the night of our wedding and stay at Zonnevanger Guesthouse was just what we needed. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfast is far more than what we expected and was so delicious on both mornings. Thank you to Hennie and his team for the best wedding weekend ever!!

The only issue we had was the air conditioning was not working in Rooms 5 and 7. On a hot day in Paarl and on our wedding day was not ideal. I think load shedding might have had an impact on the air-cons though. Perhaps something just to check out that it's working as it should, because getting ready in 30 degree weather and trying to keep cool hours before the wedding was really important, we had to move into the room next door just to try and stay cool and avoid our makeup from running.

This beautiful lodge and wedding venue created the most unforgetable wedding memories for us by hosting my daughter's fairytale wedding on 17 September 2022.
We want to thank Hennie and his amazing team for making the wedding and our stay so beautiful! The rooms are all spacious and beautifully kept and laid out for maximum comfort and enjoyment.Standard and quality of guest requirements are very high.
We highly reccomend Zonnevanger for anyone who wants to make memories and experience this little Gem in Paarl.

Very nice place with excellent staff and service! The food was freshly prepared and on time. The rooms was very clean, spacious and comfortable. I loved the fact that you can have a braai on the premises with a pool to take a dip in or just enjoy the beautiful mountain views.

The guesthouse owner Hendrik was an amazing host for all our guests when we had our wedding at Zonnevanger. He was always around to help settle the nerves even when the load shedding started :) We filled up the guesthouse and kept Hendrik on his toes but his service was excellent. I highly recommend the guesthouse at Zonnevanger!
