The location has awesome views, fantastic rooms and a brilliant team. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast on the terrace is great way to start your day. Located in between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek it’s easy access to all the wine yards. Also within a short taxi journey are a selection of great restaurants.

We had a wedding down the road so location was perfect, not only for that but close to central Stellenbosch and their restaurants, which are very busy, but also lots of Wine Estates / Restaurants close by. Staff were very pleasant, large spacious rooms with stunning views. Would definitely recommend Banhoek Lodge!

Our stay exceeded our high expectations . We were in room 5 (an upper floor deluxe king room). The very comfortable room is spacious with a wonderful terrace looking out across the vineyards to spectacular mountains beyond. Every member of staff is truly committed to giving a high level of service. Nothing is too much trouble. The hot breakfast is made to order and, along with the extensive continental buffet, sets you up for the day. The relaxing pool area is secluded with plenty of shade available. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you to Michael and his team for a memorable stay.

Highly recommended. Superb setting with views over the vineyards and mountains. Beautiful rooms. Very friendly staff and lovely breakfasts on the terrace. Immaculately clean. Great for a few days of relaxation or a stop off on the way round the Cape.

In a great location, walking distance to nearby estates. The staff are lovely and have good recommendations of what there is to see in the area. We especially liked the option to get cheese platters as room service in the evenings when much of the surrounds closes for the night.

The lodge is quaint and modern! The location and views are absolutely beautiful - you see the mountains and vineyards. The rooms are extremely spacious and very clean. Each room has their own private balcony, and soaking tub. The staff was great, super helpful and friendly. The breakfast spread was delicious! Very accommodating to your needs. Walking distance to a couple of wineries. 10/10 stay - will be back soon!

Banhoek lodge provided the perfect getaway at the end of a tour of South Africa. Perfectly located for so many amazing wineries in the area, several within walking distance. The attention to detail here is obvious. From proteas on the bedside tables, to walking maps from the hotel and vouchers for free tasting at a couple of local places. Endless possibilities for food in all directions (Steplenboch town is less than 10min away), either on foot or by Uber (which was always easy to pick up) so don’t be put off by the lack of dining here. You are spoilt for choice! Breakfast either in room or in the dining room was so good. The room itself was stunning with incredible views over the Banhoek Valley, comfortable bed and a well stocked and reasonably priced mini bar. Staff were always friendly and helpful, and full of knowledge of the local area. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Banhoek Lodge to anyone. A perfect Stellenboch escape! We will be back!

Impeccable-can be used to describe our experience staying here over Christmas Eve. I was awe-struck at the beauty of the room and the wonderful views. My husband and I could hardly believe what a gem we had discovered. The bed was so comfy, and the room was cozy yet open and airy (I loved the large pane of glass doors that opened up to the vineyard). In addition- the breakfast was so delicious (had everything from eggs to pancakes to a cold bar of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and homemade breads). And the service was great too. So excited to go back again!

We had a fantastic stay at banhoek lodge. Right from the start the staff could not have been more friendly and helpfull. The communication prior to arrival was excellent. Our room was just beautiful with stunning views over the vineyards and mountains beyond. Breakfast was deciduous. Nothing was too much trouble. Would not hesitate to recommend!!!
