We know Lanzerac from way back 1973 when we as students could only afford to come once a month for the Sunday cheese lunch. The atmosphere of the estate has never changed since and we are now in the fortunate position to stay regularly in the hotel. During good times and bad times with all the Covid problems, winter or summer time , Lanzerac gives us this very special feeling of coming home. Staff is very helpful and dedicated, food is superb and the whole ambience breathes peace and harmony. The estate with all outbuildings exudes a grandeur with an interior architecture that can be called chic without a doubt, but the atmosphere is very casual and relaxed. Highly recommended for anyone who appreciates the pleasures of life.
There are many incredible properties in the Cape Wine Lands and having visited several, Lanzerac managed to encapsulate all elements from Estate Life, Wine Touring, Activities through to a sense of belonging, authentic history coupled with outstanding accommodation and a team that genuinely take pride and joy in ensuring your stay is perfect. This is a destination within itself and I would encourage you to think very carefully about the length of your stay... you will want to stay longer. The variety of 4 or 5 dining options depending upon the time of day, spa, activities, wine tour, complimentary shuttle to Stellenbosch and just taking time to relax means you will not tire of things to do.
The hotel setting in the outer suburbs of Stellenbosch is spectacular, the grounds are manicured and maintained to an exceptionally high level. The exposed brick walls and Cape Dutch architecture is charming. The rooms and bathrooms are enormous and luxurious, in short, it was a perfect venue for our mini conference. The food was to a very high standard. All eight members of the party were very impressed and one member of our party was so enthusiastic that he will be returning with his wife for their anniversary
THIS PLACE! I am such a hotel snob and was debating between staying here, Leeu or Delaire Graff. I hands down made the right decision. We needed a few days of quiet and relaxation to unwind after a really hard film shoot and this place immediately provides a sense of calm. The spa services were incredible - honestly just wish I had done more of them. We visited some of the other places for tastings we considered staying and were so happy with our decision. If you're looking for a beautiful, peaceful, chic and understated escape - this place is it. Food was great, reception was great and this place gets what it means to take care of its guests. The ROOMS! They are huge, comfortable, stylish and unique. My room had a big fire place and my friend's had the most epic bath tub. I never wanted to leave that room. Everything was included in the price, breakfast and mini bar etc - it made us feel so taken care of. I could go on and on gushing about how special this place is. I can't wait to find my way back there. If you're looking to go big in the wine lands - you won't regret doing it here. …
Absolutely loved my time at Lanzerac, wished I could extend my stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a tranquil, classy and beautiful place to go refresh at. Handwritten notes, great wine and mountain views, good food and awesome service all round. The rooms and bathrooms are massive, clean and great care is taken with every detail and staff is super friendly. Awesome place!
