Wellington Country House is situated in, a farming village in the heart of the Cape Winelands, just 45 min from Cape Town International Airport. Wellington is known for its long sunny days, fresh fruit, “Stokkies” production, Bains Whisky and the best Chenin Blanc in the world. Wellington Country house consists 4 guest bedrooms, the owners have a separate suite. The pool deck and three of the rooms have views of the neighboring vineyards and the Limietberg mountains. All our double rooms are air-conditioned and meals are available. Full board option available on request, we require 72 hours notice. No self-catering available, but we have many restaurants offering delicious meals. Wellington Country House provides quick access to a fun 6.2 km walking/running route for exercise. Many MTB and cycling routes provides great riding. Shops, pharmacy and doctors closeby (1.8km). Our style is Hygge, easy and relaxed. Wellington Country House is suitable for a peaceful quiet break, enjoying the quiet ambience, come and enjoy our home in the Cape Winelands. Lounge around the pool (or soon to come Karoo hot tubs), read a book, enjoy something sweet by the fireplace in the lounge on a cold winter’s day. We are not the place to have a “lekker” party. No bachelor-parties, hen-parties noise, no drugs/dagga etc allowed on property. No nudity please. We are set in a picturesque valley surrounded by orchards and vineyards, although we are not on a farm as such. If you need a place to relax and unwind in quiet, tranquil surroundings Wellington Country House is just what you need.. Our friendly team will service your room daily between 10 am and 12 am. They will refill your amenities (we avoid single use plastics). A complimentary sachet of locally roasted Arabica coffee is provided, more is available on sale. Fresh milk daily. Pool and bath towels are provided. South Africa is suffering periodic load shedding. All rooms are fitted with a light that will work. Please bring a flashlight, just in case. The WiFi is on a battery system and should operate 100% of the time, unless there is a technical supply issue, which does not happen very often.

We spent a wonderful time in Wellington, our accommadation felt like home away from home and the comfort of our room set us up for a peaceful night's rest. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, having a fire place ready on a cold day was inviting.

I went on a quick weekend getaway with my boyfriend. The host, Mara, was so accommodating and friendly, she went above and beyond to make out stay amazing. The staff Marisha and Tafadzo were brilliant and made delicious breakfasts for us. Would give 6 stars if I could!! Brilliant time away. I feel so relaxed, calm and ready for the ‘real world’ again. Thank you!! Honourable mention to Bovril the doggo xx Super cute and friendly pup.

Cannot recommend this place enough! The service was outstanding. The views were amazing. The hot tub was such a treat. Mara was such an attentive and accommodating host! On top of that, the breakfast was extremely tasty and well-presented. Top quality people and guesthouse. They definitely know how to provide a great experience for guests.

My friend and I stayed here for one night during our tour of SA’s wine country. Mara is an exceptional hostess. She went above and beyond and we felt so welcome. She provided information about local wineries, tourism tips and even an ice pack for my sprained ankle! Lovely and beautiful setting, good breakfast, great hostess!

This is a lovely guesthouse, with magnificent views over the vineyards and mountains. But we didn't get the privacy we expect in a venue of this nature. Our 'suite' was not a suite at all: it's two bedrooms next to each other, with a passage running directly past the rooms that the staff kept using to service the other room. So basically you're lying on your bed with the door open, and people are walking past or calling each other down the passage. Not ideal. Check me in and then leave me alone until I ask for something. It's also not the venue's fault that the swimming pool pump had broken while we were there. But having people loudly debating the niceties of a pool pump right outside our room makes it hard to work or relax. Maybe we just caught them on an off day. Could have been 5 stars. Wasn't.

When guests check in for business it is reasonable to assume that when their vehicle is not on the premises, the guests are out for the day. Misunderstandings happen but very rarely. Our staff will never intrude while guests are in the rooms, as much for their own integrity as for the guest’s privacy. My staff are very well trained and usually complimented by our guests. We specifically arrange any critical maintenance after 10am when guests are out. When the pool goes on the blink in 40+ weather and two days before an excruciating hot weekend ahead, it constitutes an emergency. Yet we try very hard not inconvenience guests. We take great care not to disturb guests and have a quiet policy. Staff are to be seen rarely and heard only when replying to or serving guests. We are usually complimented for great service. We have no control over the rooms prospective guests choose to book. Discerning business travellers are very comfortable in the luxury suite. Families or a group of friends usually prefer to book the very popular budget friendly family room suite with 2 adjacent bedrooms and full family bathrooms and sitting area over-looking the pool. We try our utmost to make every visit pleasurable and all every guest is a VIP and we value your support and feedback.

WCH is such a gem. Nothing is too much to ask from the hosts Mara and husband Dick. Friendly staff and well maintained. Awesome views of the mountains and vineyards. The rooms are spacious and well equipped for international travelers with power adapters available.

We have made wrong choice in booking this place. Wel where there for business and the room was not what we hopped. Small and the badroom was hidden behind a closed, which was never informed before our in any explanation of the guesthouse. Very friendly host and very helpful but for us not the best choice. Also small double bed. In and out the guesthouse was with 3 different keys and our room was next to the entrance so many passage in and out. Clean place but we made wrong choice.

Thank you for taking the time to review to your room. We ‘re sorry that your expectations were not met, despite clear pictures. It is a pity you chose to book our smallest budget room, the Cap Classique Suite might have been more to your liking, but perhaps out of your price range. This is Africa and unfortunately we prefer to keep guests safe and secure; hence the security gate. It is standard practice to have lockable room, so two keys may be annoying but ensures a peaceful night’s rest. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

I have travlled the world so to speak. Never felt more at home than in this clean , quiet guest house with superb views next to a vineyard with mountains in the background. The personal services of the owner Mara makes you feel like a special person ..she is the tour advisor and her staff are respected by all. Best guest house ever !! You get more that what you ever thought of. Its clean and beautiful
