We arrived at Meerendal and were charmed by the beautiful setting, panoramic mountain views and surrounding vineyards. The hotel dates back to the early 1700's and combines modern luxury with traditional Cape charm. However what makes this place so special is the people. The service was not invasive but caring, and from everyone from the cleaner to management. Special mention... More

We stayed her for 2 nights at the end of a two week trip. The setting is beautiful. We booked the standard room. It was dreadful. Not in the main building, small, dark and facing the car park. We upgraded to a room in the main building which was much better, with a big bathroom. The hotel does not include... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Meerendal. Enjoyed our stay but could have been so much better. All little things but they add up. First we were given a room right at the back with no path to the door. It was small and dark. We asked if there were other rooms and initially told no but persisted and eventually... More

Small, dark rooms. Unfriendly service. Ridiculously over-priced, seeing that all you get is a bed and a TV. Breakfast not included. Don't be fooled by the online photo's. What you see is definitely not what you'll get. Will definitely not recommend this to anybody who wants to spend money on accommodation outside of the city

This place completely met my expectations. Asanda is one of the women who works in the hotel part and I cannot give her enough credit, she was absolutely amazing. The place was clean, she was always on top of things and exceeded our needs. Their hired driver had a car that did not feel reliable to us and would recommend... More

The price /performance ratio is totally out of range - way too expensive for what is on offer. This all I have to say - at about R1000 - R1200 max would be fair value, but at R1900.00 without anything complimentary - like a chocolate on the pillow or similar, and each item is charged for separately ie breakfast etc...

As we flew to Cape Town with the MTB, Meerendal was obviously part of our vacation plans as Meerendal boasts with some of the world’s best trail running and mountain biking trails. We found the Hotel receptionist, Asanda Ketelo to be a perfect host. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome, informed us of the nearby... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights- very disappointed in the reception service- overall poor service delivery from arrival until departure. Asanda was the only lady at this hotel that goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable and assist. Bonus she smiles! Our TV wasn’t working for 4 nights after complaining when we arrived. The standard... More

The Receptionist did not know anything about the arranged honeymoon stayover, she insisted on getting proof of payment when the full amount had been paid well in advance, breakfast was paid for and was supposed to be included for the honeymoon couple this was not ciommunicated with the Meerendal staff and when the couple made enquiries they were told it...

This lovely wine farm offers generous rooms, great ambience, convenient location for Durbanville and scenic running and mountain biking options on-site. Bonus: in-room Nespresso machine and great Wifi! On-site restaurant is decent and wine selection very good. Decent value for money in an underrated winelands destination near Cape Town.
