It was nice to stay at the wine farm with a very beautiful surrounding, The price was too high as compared to what you get. Restaurang was in our view quite average. The pool was unattractive and dirty.

The room was magnificent. The view was great. The room service was excellent. The restaurant service could have been a bit better. We had to call the waitrons a few times to place an order. I enjoyed the massage that I had. The road in front of our room was a bit noisy during the day, as vehicles were passing...

We had very high expectations, given the pictures featured. The rooms and pool are nothing like the website. There is a loading bay next to spa a rooms, very strange. We asked for a wine, told they are still bottling it!!! I am sure there are better places to stay.

Almost as good as perfect. Service, rooms, suffoundings. The Piza and Vino restaurant is wonderful and the witresses always helpful and courteous, althought the manager was rather stressed. I'm sure he meant to help, but he gave the impression of chasing up the staff. Needs to relax a little!

I would recommend Val du Charron to family and friends for a breakaway. It's situated in one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa. It felt as if I was in a different country although it was only an hour's drive from home.

The views from here are spectacular! Rooms are comfortable and clean. The only negative for us was the much raved about Rib eye steak. We ordered the 500g and received what looked like your typical T-Bone. This was extremely tough and very disappointing. The fillet was lovely though.

The location is a few kilometers from the town of Wellington and lies in a stunningly beautiful valley. The suite was immaculate with a balcony with a view of the valley. The staff are exceptionally efficient and pleasant. The facilities include an excellent spa, adjacent pizzeria and an in house steak-house with especially matured prime beef. The air is saturated...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Val du Charron guest house is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town. The guest house comprises nine luxurious suites, each individually furnished. The Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. Guests can enjoy a full farmer's breakfast served in the dining area; which integrates with the wine tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day. For a holistic view of the wine making process or simply to enjoy the tranquility of the farm, a number of walks and bike rides have been set up around the farm that highlight aspects such as the various cultivars of wine grown, the bee hives necessary to pollinate the vines and the dams that catch and supply the farm with all its water. Guests may also fish the basis for bass on a catch and releases basis.During Wellington's hot summer months a swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests.During the winter months large fire places with couches provide ambiance for board games or reading while sipping on a glass of Val du Charron's premium wine. ... more   less
