“Tranquil and scenic - above it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2016

While only a brief stay, the time spent at Clouds Estate was enjoyable and memorable. We had the opportunity to do some wine tasting arranged at check in and visit some great wineries Lanzerac, Rustenberg, Tokara, and taste some great wine at dinner at Cloud Estate (Sadie Family). As if Clouds Estate was not great enough, Delaire Graff is right next door and there is a back gate for ease of access for dinner.

Room Tip: If the cottages are available, I would suggest looking into this option.

The cloud is a very comfortable and elegant location. We liked it very much and especially the views from the garden with the pool was splendid. Service was also very good. There was only limited parking, when we arrived.

This was our third stay at Clouds and it will not be the last. We have always stayed in the villas. This time, as "our" villa was booked for one of the nights, we stayed at the standard room. Turns out that the room was great and the views unbelievable. The rooms come with a complimentary mini-bar stocked upon arrival which is a great perk. This time we had breakfast included (which was not the case in previous stays). Breakfast is delicious and it has various options. The eggs benedict were divine. Service was very good and it was came with big and warm smiles. The one thing I still don't quite like is that the pool for the villas is super cold. It would be great if it could be heated. Other than that, I can confidently say that Clouds is our accommodation of choice when in Stellenbosch. We just cannot get enough of the views and tranquility the place offers. Another perk is its proximity to Tokara, which is, hands down, one of our favorite dining options in the area. I 100% recommend Clouds.

We stayed at the Cloud Estate for 3 nights for a friends wedding at another estate just down the road. The hotel itself is quite relaxed and chilled, the staff were very friendly and courteous, and when we arrived we felt welcomed. However, the staff are very laid back in their approach to serving the guests. I requested drinks and food which took forever to arrive, and the food itself is very poor and not the standard of a 5 star establishment. I ordered lunch on one of the days and it took 45min to prepare and then they got the order wrong (after I had chased them for an update twice and asked them to verify the order) The breakfast was also poor on both days which I mentioned to the staff.

The hotel is beautiful though and the location could not be better. One of the major benefits is it's proximity to the Delaire Graff Estate which has better facilities and restaurants (but a hell of a lot more expensive)

I recommend the Cloud Estate to tourists who want to wake up to the best view in Stellenbosch. I am sure the food issues will be sorted soon.

It was just perfect my time in Cloud Estate! The staff, the view, the food, the atmosphere....the place is private and so beautiful! I really want to get back soon! The staff was too kind! And the location is also pretty good to visit other wineries!!!
