The scenic drive to Grand Dedale and the Doolhof Wine Estate is a journey to experience - and it just gets better! Suddenly we found ourselves in a picture-book setting, far away from any reminder of city life, surrounded by magnificent mountains, beautiful gardens and hearing only the sounds of nature. What a fairytale like Country House this is! It is exquisite and made us feel like we had stepped into a bygone era! Kindness and generosity, a wonderful breakfast on the terrace to enjoy the views, a long pool that was very welcome after a hot day, a room that was just perfect - we felt very spoilt, thank you! We had underestimated how much Wellington and the region have to offer, so next time we know to stay at least 3 nights. Thank you for making this a most memorable stay in every way!

Located in Wellington, Grand Dedale on Doolhof Wine Estate is definitely my new favourite go to for a few days away. Top of the list is the dinner, fine dining at its best. With stunning walks and cycling tracks through the vineyards and forests, what more could you ask for.

My daughter and I stayed for two nights and it was extremely relaxing, fun and the height of luxury. the room - especially the bathroom was out of this world.. The staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly, The food delicious! The owners checked in with us at various stages through light conversations. The environment was beautiful. I highly recommend.

My husband and I enjoyed a 2 day stay at Grand Dedale. Angelo offers as warm a welcome as was the temperature. After travelling through Wellington, we continued along the beautiful valley till we reached Doolhof Wine Estate. The hotel is beautifully laid out with a wide wrap around stoep where we enjoyed all our meals. The meals were all very tasty and they catered well for my vegetarian diet, as well as my husbands keto diet. The dinner menu's were presented each morning so you could specify if any of the courses or ingredients weren't to your liking. We did a 10km walk one morning, but preferred the indigenous vegetation on the bains kloof side of the valley (that the hotel is situated on), as the other side was mainly blue gum and not very exciting. Angelo is an enthusiastic mountain biker and took my husband out the other morning to explore a trail he hadn't yet done. The hotel is elegant and the room that we stayed in was very pretty. We used the mini plunger with fresh ground coffee when we work up early for our walk as the restaurant wasn't open yet. I can also recommend the massage therapists - they come in from Stellenbosch, as both massages were very good. The wine tasting at Doolhof which is just a few 100 meters away was another fun addition to the day. The hotel definitely had more of an adult feel so wouldn't recommend coming with young children but for a relaxing time away with your partner or friends, it was really lovely.
