Perfect personalized experience in an intumate setting. Very quiet place, we ordered cheese platters (and had wine) each night on our balcony rather than go back out for dinner. The staff was incredible. Smiling, accommodating and even gave us a very quick breakfast so we didn’t

We are so happy that you loved making use of our pool area. It is such a lovely place to sit, relax and unwind with a glass of wine after a long and eventful day! Not to mention, the cheese platter on the balcony! Nothing is better than cheese, wine, and that view! So we are glad you appreciated it and made the most of your time here! We hope to see you again in the future!

Lovely place with very friendly staff and an unnrivalled view. A little close to the main road so not as private as some other lodges but the view means you can forgive this! The bedrooms are spacious with lovely outdoor space.

Thank you for finding our staff to be friendly. We always wish to show all of our guests that South African charm! So thank you for mentioning it! I am sorry that you felt like the Lodge is close to the main road, but we are happy that the view made up for it! We hope that you can come and visit our establishment again!

So... I could guff on. Great view, handy for the top wineries, well away from the rather industrial Stellenbosch...amazing breakfast. But I won't. I'll just say, based on our experience this is an absolute highlight and a true gem.

Thank you for your review, short and sweet is lovely! Thank you for saying that Banhoek Lodge is a gem! We are truly blessed to be so close to everything, yet it feels like you are nestled in nature with very few things around you. We are happy that you managed to spend time at all the lovely wineries around us. We are blessed to be located at the top wine destinations in the world. We hope you come and visit again soon!

"The room facing the winery had a view to remember forever!"
"We preferred upstairs"
"All rooms have amazing views of vineyard and surrounding mountain and valley."
"Room 1 could be problematic for some, as guests who stand on the edge of the patio of the lodge can easily look back into room 1"
"best views ever."
