Lovely setting, great service

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Jan 2024via mobile
The gardens are wonderful and beautifully maintained. Staff and service absolutely excellent. Our room was fantastic — loved the outside shower! Only negatives are: evening meal was disappointing - we ate so well at truly great restaurants nearby (fine dining at Babel, and Tokara, great pizzas at Alloroa) that out one night eating in was poor by comparison. Breakfasts were very good, though. Also, noise from building works on the estate spoiled the ambiance. Much better on Saturday when worked had stopped!

Reviewed 16 April 2023

Well this is an odd review because the rooms are amazing. Probably one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. But, it was advertised with a private pool, which turns out to be a plunge pool, and which is absolutely freezing cold and unusable. The mist and fog that obscured our view are to be expected in the autumn and are the reason that we booked the package with wine tasting so that we had an activity. Also the hotel boasts of its 2 pools. The pools, it turns out, are 2 small plunge areas and a nature lake that is not accessible at this time of year. We were given our vouchers for the wine tasting but told to book an external taxi to get there. We had presumed that this was an onsite facility but went on to book a taxi at our own expense. Upon arrival we were told that the wine tasting was closed that day. Our return taxi was not due for an hour so we had to pay for food and wine in the cafe which then was closing, so we waited in the rain and cold outside. We did discuss this with the staff and expected some sort of compensation, but were told that the wine tasting was just a gift. Given that this was part of our package, I can only assume that if we had not had a bed, the same excuse would have been given. This is a beautiful establishment but it needs to be sure that guests receive what they have booked.

Angala surpassed our expectations from its stunning secluded yet central location under the mountains to its beautiful rooms and absolutely delicious food. But what stood out most for me was the friendly staff and their attitude towards making our stay a memorable occasion. They went out of their way after a slight mishap occurred with a birthday cake for me and went above and beyond what would be expected. Another lucky guest got a taste of the cake but to amend for the error that occurred they upgraded us to their best suite free of charge and was very apologetic. Aubrey and his staff truelly represents south african hospitality. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

We had the best time at Angala. We arrived later on Tuesday evening and the friendly staff checked us in and then offered us the option to order a cheese plate to our room which was so convenient after a long day. Breakfast the next day was yummy and they were great about ordering a shuttle service to the wine tram as we didn’t have a car. The staff were so nice to chat to and the setting was beautiful. Highly recommend staying here!

A beautiful hotel in a spectacular setting a and a short drive from lots of vineyards and also the Franschhoek wine tram. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was great. Such a relaxing and luxurious stay. We would thoroughly recommend a visit.

We only stayed one night, but wish we could have stayed forever! The private cottage and entire property are absolutely gorgeous. This hotel feels like a private oasis. So cozy and gorgeous views make this hotel a must visit!
