Chased down at the door like a criminal to pay a bill which had already been paid was shockingly embarrassing in front of other guests. I will never go back. This as a regular guest for several months.

Hotel's Favourite
Hard to sum this beautiful property up in words. It is just breathtakingly beautiful! The Erinvale Estate & Spa was the perfect way to start our vacation, we only wish we could have stayed much longer. The grounds were gorgeous complete with a world renowned golf course and adjacent to several fabulous wine farms to explore. So close, you can actually walk. We can not say enough about the entire staff, prior to our stay we had a fair amount of contact with Jenice and Solitaine who were both so helpful in helping us plan our activities and airport transfer with Paul who was also great. Our accommodations were luxuriously perfectly appointed with a nice patio and garden view. We visited the spa for the couples treatments with lunch and it was THE BEST and much needed after 35 hours of travel. Every hour of travel to get here was so worth it, you will not regret staying here. Each detail is perfect, the interior design is just the best of any hotel we have seen. They did an amazing job with their beautiful renovations. The hotel manager was also so helpful in welcoming us and giving us wonderful area suggestions. You will be so happy you chose to stay at The Erinvale.

I came to Somerset West from California to recuperate from surgery at a nearby surgeon. I needed peace, quiet, relaxation and healing. I got more than I bargained for - two weeks stay were everything I needed - healing, peace and the most beautiful garden to walk for recuperation. Stayed in the Executive Room, spacious, all the amenities - fist class food, breakfast was included and the service by all, especially, front desk, wait staff and cleaning staff - just super friendly and kind. Also Management was amazing and first class communications skills... Will be back in November - considered other Wine Estates but I fell in love and will be back....

Excellent hotel, newly decorated and very friendly staff. German owner's touch is much appreciated. Food and drink was on par with the environment and lots of parking on the lovely grounds. Outside dining during nice weather must be a feast. Our new 'home from home' in Somerset West / Stellenbosch area.

I was blown away by the service I received from SOLITAIRE. I visited the hotel about 6 weeks ago with my daughter - coffee date. As I walked in today she asked me if my daughter is joining me again! Small things that make a huge difference. Thank you Solitaire.

Stayed here back in 2017 and had a great stay then, this time was just as good for our 4 night stay, probably also due to the renovation of the main house which has really done the trick with better food options, but for a hotel that size they really do need a larger swimming pool area as there are only about 6 sun loungers available. Staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, especially when my wife was not feeling too well, in particular, Susan and Letitia were so helpful and caring. Also a mention for Genelle, a young trainee who checked us in and seemed to be popping up everywhere doing jobs was great. Plenty of parking and wifi, food good, excellent golf course with great staff there too. We'll be back!
