The guesthouse is in a quiet area of Robertson, our room was nicely decorated, the large bed very cosy, a big bathroom with everything you can wish. The garden area and swimmingpool are beautiful and open for the guest's use, and in the evening our host Hilde cooked an adorable meal. We had a great time in Ballinderry guesthouse

Perfect place to stop when in Robertson for any reason.
Hilde and Luc will make yourself feel comfortable paying attention to every detail in a very discrete way.
Make sure you book a table for dinner, because Hilde is a very passionate cook and Luc will be an attentive host.

I stay at many different hotels and guesthouses on business trips. The Balinderry shines as the best stayover experience I have ever had during more than 20 years of business travel across South Africa.
Their attention to detail and impeccable standards make this guesthouse very deserving of its 5 star rating!
Here is what makes The Balinderry stand out for me, as very special:
There is no searching for the correct light switches to turn on lights in specific areas - every light switch is marked;
The fabulous aircon provides a cool environment in which to sleep during the warm nights;
The honesty bar is fully stocked with all you could ever wish for and there is a box of snacks to choose from should you feel peckish;
I was amazed to find a Nespresso machine in my room!;
Charlotte Rhys toiletries in the bathroom were a luxurious treat;
Breakfast needs a hearty morning appetite should you wish to take full advantage - from all the cereals and yoghurts you could possible want, to the continental meat and cheese spread through to Hilde's delicious cooked breakfasts.
- Last but not least, the warm hospitality of Luc and Hilde.
Thank you Luc and Hilde for providing a soothing oasis during my busy work trips. See you next year!

We stayed here because our friends were getting married.

What a joy! Luc and Hidle are caring and warm hosts. They have good facilities, a nice and well maintained garden and a sweet dog.

We were given a room which is actually adjacent to the main building which provided us more privacy.

Friendly staff with the best service and a relaxed atmosphere. The room was cleaned daily and fresh linen left (not to mention the great quality of coffee in the room). Breakfast was delicious and served with a smile. We spent three nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It was our anniversary and we were treated with a complimentary bottle of champagne. The Ballindery will definitely see us again!

My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay 4 nights at Ballinderry in January. Located in a quiet and safe feeling neighborhood, the property is very impressive and secure with off street parking. I was given a warm welcome by Luc and shown to my room which overlooked the pool. A fantastic and spacious bedroom and bathroom, with a huge and super comfy bed and large and well appointed shower, great water pressure, lovely amenities - everything perfect. Fridge in the room was a nice touch too, TV with good channel selection. Outside, the grounds are fantastically well maintained, the swimming pool looked pristine. (sadly the weather wasn't good enough for me to try it - next time maybe) Luc and Hilde were perfect hosts, with great tips, good recommendations and a truly stunning 3 course dinner offering - I can't recommend strongly enough. My wife's vegetarian needs were catered for without issue, and we both really enjoyed our sumptuous in house meal. We'll definitely be back as we loved our stay, and chatting with our hosts made it all the better, as did the complimentary Port and Muscadel for guests enjoyment. We wish you continued success and look forward to returning.

We had a wonderful few days at Ballinderry. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, the accommodation was faultless , the pool and garden delightful, and the food was out of this world. Like all our fellow guests, having sampled the evening meal , we booked the following evenings as well.Three delicious, home made courses made by Hilde herself, accompanying wines, all served with such friendly care. All food was of Michelin quality. We will not hesitate to recommend this delightful guest house, and hope to return.

Kind, considerate and thoroughly happy and friendly owners. Within easy reach of local wineries and attractions. Evening meal provided by the guest house was far more tasty, hot and I’d class as fine dining with beautiful surroundings and attentive hosts. Even champagne for breakfast with freshly cooked breakfast of your choice.

Ballinderry nestles within the neat tree lined avenues of the small town of Robertson and is within easy distance of a number of excellent wineries. Luc and Hilde are the most engaging of hosts and Hilde’s cooking is quite exeptional . The accomodation is of a high standard .
