We loved the night we spent here, and many thanks to the staff for the upgrade for my birthday. Wish we could have stayed many more nights and enjoyed it. The food was wonderful and so easy to enjoy dinner at Delaire Graaf next door (taken over on the golf cart). Perfect pool and sensational views. Room was big, modern, and so comfortable. Also felt like lovely extras had been thought of, like snacks and complimentary wine on arrival AND in the room!

We stayed in Room 3 and have a wonderful stay. The views were incredible throughout the property. Special thanks to Aimee and Leticha for being so friendly and accommodating, as well as to the kitchen staff for meeting my gluten free needs. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. My only suggestion for improvement would be that all restaurant staff wear masks whilst serving. Nevertheless, thank you for a wonderful stay!

The pictures don't even begin to tell you how scenic it is and the pictures are glorious. We were greeted with pink sauvignon blanc and a snack plate along with a smile. What a treat, with amazing guest service and with breakfast included, you can't beat the price/value. Their dinner restaurant is great, with lots of choices, breakfast is full course and buffet. I would have stayed here a month if I could, just looking at the view and being spoiled by good food/wine each day. Don't miss this place - it's hands down the best place we saw in Stellenbosch area.

Had the last 2 nights here on a whirlwind trip to the Cape Town area. Set up in the mountains 10/15 outside Stellenbosch, Clouds is a lovely peaceful estate with fabulous panoramic views. We had a very comfortable room to the side of the property allowing to see outside on the decking taking in the scenery. Lovely staff to talk to and really good food. We were winding down so chose to eat in the restaurant both nights and the food was that good I question why so many seem so keen to rush next door to the De Graff and miss out on what is probably a far more affordable evening. Also during our stay had a bottle of each of Clouds Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc and a Shiraz with our beef fillet, all high quality. We can only recommend a stay.If you do have a walk across the road to Tokara and Thelema wine estates, both lovely but Thelema was probably in the top 3 of estates we visited whilst on holiday. I have suggested in the summary that the hotel is in the luxurious category to stay in, and in terms of a stay it is, but the price range is a lot lower than others in the area. I have suggested the hotel

Beautiful accommodation with the most amazing views from every room. A small boutique estate where we ate the grapes from the vines, watched them being pressed and hopefully taste by next year ! Food was superb and staff couldn’t do enough for us. Whether you want to enjoy wine tasting in the region or just relax by the pool this place is perfect. Couldn’t fault anything
