Brenaissance (n): Derived from Breytenbach & the French ‘renaissance’, meaning ‘new beginnings’. A place of new journeys that lead to reinvention & adventure. Deep within the heart of the Devon Valley, a mere stone’s throw away from Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, lies Brenaissance Wine & Stud Estate. A place of new beginnings, this serene & evergreen estate is an established wine & cattle farm that boasts modern farm accommodation, a breath-taking venue & chapel, a highly acclaimed family restaurant & a top quality Boran cattle stud. Established in 2011, Brenaissance has earned a long-standing reputation for offering visitors, guests & bridal couples a truly memorable & exclusive Winelands experience. From premium wines & the finest local fare, to exclusive venue services & some of the Winelands’ most spectacular natural backdrops – this guest estate provides a tasting menu of the finer things in life. Brenaissance is renowned for its range of accommodation options, boasting contemporary decor with subtle farm touches. What used to be our historic “dorpshuisies” have been restored & refurbished into 8 exquisite Vineyard Suites & 1 spacious Honeymoon Suite, featuring breath-taking views of the valley from the “stoep”. In the middle of a small plum orchard, you’ll find our 6 Orchard Suites – the old labourers’ cottages that have been restored & renovated to exude elegance & understated farm luxury. Ranging from studios & 1-bedroom suites to the more spacious family cottages, each cottage has its own cast iron wood burning fireplace, mini private deck & braai area – not to mention fully equipped kitchen to accommodate longer stays. Guests can also enjoy exclusive access to the Pool House & use of the pool, deck chairs & facilities.

First the positive thing: It’s a really beautiful and calm place with nice rooms. Unfortunately that’s all. The toilettes work with rainwater that’s not filtered. So they look dirty and brown. This water is also provided for washing your hands in the public areas like restrooms at the pool or at the event location. It’s not really hygienic. When there’s a power blackout (you often have it twice a day for a few hours) they don’t provide power by a generator or solar power. Then also the toilettes don’t work. For an estate like this, this is a No Go. Breakfast is only served until 09:30, after that there’s no possibility to buy/drink something at the pool, you have to buy water at the supermarket and can make an instant coffee in your room. In our room one side of the shutters that cover the door was missing so that it was bright as day from 05:30 on. We were there also for an event. Some drinks from the drinks menu (which was coordinated in advance) weren’t available.

The location and the rooms are exellent. Very quiet location. The two ladies were very friendly. Breakfast was good. Distance to Stellendam about 10 Minutes. Don´t sell the old wine anymore, it tasted really bad

I stayed in one of the vineyard rooms and it was a spacious and comfortable stay - I stayed for 5 days and it was perfect for solo business traveler. I enjoyed a lovely breakfast at Brenaissance in the mornings, but were free and able to cater for myself and enjoy an outside fire on the patio in the evenings. The load-shedding impact was not too much as the venue is prepared for it.

The hotel is on a lovely wine estate but for our stay we felt we arrived out of season and that it was running on a skeleton schedule. There was very limited staff no one at reception and the breakfast was very limited poor quality. The rooms were ok and could do with a refresh and clean. Overall not a great experience.

Disappointing. Moved after one night. Looked better in the photos. Should have read the reviews before booking. A general sense of cost cutting and lack of attention to detail. Bed a bit dirty.. smears on the side, towels small, toilet could have been cleaner,could hear snoring of person in room next door while watching TV! Breakfast burnt, water on the tables in the breakfast room, water in the salt, paper napkins were scrumpled and looked old, floor in bedroom wet and slippery when it rained.... nothing to dry it with..needed a mat. Self catering with no drying up cloth, sponges etc no cutting knives or washing up liquid. No pots or pans for the stove. Only a miniature liquid soap in bathroom which was literally 3 cm tall. Interested in why it was so small, I googled the company and saw it was part of a sample set for R50 from the hospitality company. There should have been 8 items included for the R50. A mystery why the other 5 items had not been left for us. We used a towel we had in the car to dry the floor as nothing else was available. Coffee mugs were very small. Only one white wine glass and one red were provided. No one at reception....

We had an absolutely awful experience here. Their accommodation manager is one of the most incompetent and deceitful people we've come across in our many years travelling. We would strongly urge that you choose another local property for any event or overnight stay.

Located in Stellenbosch this is a wonderful estate which has wonderful rooms and environment. We stayed in the Honeymoon suit which is a lovely big room that in itself is romantic and cozy. There is need to improve on the breakfast as the options are limited and don’t match the quality of the Estate. The honeymoon sweet has tree all round it and with the heavy wind they hit and whip on the roof at night disturbing the sleep as they are really noise it sounds like a thunder storm. There is need to regularly check the ceiling as there were rats in the ceiling and little chongololos everywhere in the room and some on the ceiling with two that fell on the bed. If they could deal with the few issues this would be World class stop.

We rented the 2 bedroom cottage which had more than enough space for the three of us. Tasteful and modern decor. The place is also child friendly, our 3 year old loved the pool and the playground kept him entertained as well. Will stay again.

Just one thing that was a concern is that the shower in our room was very difficult to adjust the temperature. It was either freezing cold or boiling hot. Very sensitive tap adjustment. Also the TV didn't work for some reason.
