We stayed in a one bed villa just away from the main building. It was huge with a lovely private terrace and views over the valley. Staff were very helpful and welcoming, it is spotlessly clean and comfortable. Couldn’t have asked for more for a couple of days total relaxation

Our stay at Clouds Estae was truly exceptional. A very warm welcome from the staff, that made us instantly feeling back home again. The location and the view is something special, you got one, if not the best spot to watch the Simonshill in its best colors during our evenings sundowners. Spectacular colors and amazing formations of clouds surrounding this hill. The location is perfect, the Tokara Restaurant within walking distance and when you have dinner or lunch at Delaire Graaf you got a lift with the golf cart. If you're looking for a nice boutique hotel near Stellenbosch, Clouds Estate should be your first choice for a memorable stay. Me

Stunning views. Fabulous staff. Amazing breakfast. Location is fantastic. Generous wine tasting (included). My room was large and my two patios were extremely spacious. It was an absolute treat to stay here, hard to leave. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Set amongst the vineyard, with the most stunning views. The hotel is spotlessly clean and a little quirky. We enjoyed the jacuzzi on our balcony and in the mornings we opened the curtains to the most breathtaking views imaginable. A little bit of heaven.

We stayed at Clouds for 3 nights for my husbands birthday last week in one of their villas. Clouds has a perfect location between 2 of the most impressive wine estates in Stellenbosch and the views from all parts of the property were breathtaking. The villa was a few minutes walk from the main property with a small double bedroom (and a very hard bed) a bathroom with toilet, double sink, wet room style shower and bathtub and a large kitchen, lounge, dining room with patio doors leading out to your own deck area with seating. Air con worked well throughout the villa and it was clean and relatively modern. We didn't use the TV but were advised it could be connected to our own Netflix account etc. This is effectively a small wine farm and the service standards aren't really what you expect from a 5* hotel. - I had contacted the hotel prior to our arrivals to get details of a driver service we could use to get from Cape Town to Stellenbosch. Their recommendation arrived in a pretty beaten up car (with the wingmirror held on by tape) which came to collect us, followed by advice to 'just use uber' when in Stellenbosch. Not what I had been offered in previous 5* wine estates. - The lunch/dinner menu is small and the same every day so you need to make plans to eat elsewhere unless you like the repetition. We ordered some of the light bites to our room on the firt evening to enjoy with our wine and a lot of what was listed on the platters wasnt included. - The staff are very nervous and unsure of themselves. The wine tasting felt like the lady was reciting memorized notes from a text book and my husband had to recue our bottle of wine at dinner as the waitress broke the cork as she didnt seem to know how to use the corkscrew. Overall a great location and good size villas to use as a base to explore Stellenbosch... just dont expect 5* hotel service.

Brilliant location on the Helshoogte road. Surrounded by top class wineries and Restaurants -Tokara, Thelema and Delaire-Graaf. Sensational views, great food and cosy lounge seating areas. Room 7 was spacious with two terraces as well as a outdoor spa (was too cold to enjoy). Easy 10 minute drive into Stellenbosch and about 35 mins to Franschoek.

Wow, this was a highlight of our trip in SA. Such friendly staff, great food and amazing view. The room was beautiful and picturesque with views directly to the mountain. The complimentary wine tasting was a nice extra touch, and the wine was of course sublime.

We visited Clouds Wine and guest estate in April 2023. We were visiting as part of our honeymoon trip to Cape Town. We were blown away by the stunning scenery and the team at Clouds are simply fantastic. They could not do enough for us. Upon arrival we were shown to the outside sitting area and given a glass of the MCC (fizz) and check in was easy. We were lucky to experience a wine tasting and the estates wines were so good.we purchased some bottles to bring home with us. Can we please thank personally Adrian and Asiphe with all the team for all your assistance and for making our stay truly amazing. We really enjoyed the food at dinner and breakfast and are so grateful that Adrian reserved a table for us. The quality of the food and the choice was excellent. The teams attention to detail and the selection of Clouds wine is brilliant. We hope to be able to visit again very soon. I’d highly recommend Clouds Estate.

The location is spectacular. The food ok. The tv didn’t work. The staff had turned down in the evening but ignored that one of the bedside table lamp didn’t work. They had done some less good washing up but left it out for us to dry. The villa was general tired. To go back from diner in the dark was a health hazard as very few outdoor lights. It was very obvious that the owners only spent a couple of months there per year. Definitely not 5 stars. To pay R 5750 for one night we did expect much bettet.

Upon arriving, we we given bubbly to enjoy the spectacular views by the restaurant/pool. The views here are amazing, you feel really close to the mountains. The rooms are spacious and I had a room with a large balcony to relax and look over the views. I would really recommend this hotel if you're coming to Stellenbosch. It's right next to Delaire Graff and provided a golf cart escort to and from dinner.
