Where do I start? My first thoughts were that this establishment was some what off the beaten track! I couldn't be more wrong! It's situation allows easy access to all the surrounding wine routes. That is if you wish to leave the tranquil setting provided by the venue. This establishment might be 4 star rated, but, with all the little... More

First disclaimer: I paid over my budget as I was worried I wouldn't find a place to stay while we attended a wedding in the area so I had high expectations! They weren't met. Nice decking area out the back with a decent pool but the pool is definitely not child friendly. Breakfast was ok, homebaked bread was a plus.... More

Wow, was one of the many words my sister said on our Tour for Two on Women's Day. Lumley's Place was as calming as always. Benita and the team made sure she attended to all our requests, right to the smallest inquiry.

Visited Lumley's Place with my family. During the trip it was also my wife's 50th birthday and Benita and the crew really made breakfast special that morning! Great place to stay as you are in the heart of the wine route and close to excellent dinner venues. Going for a run in Pniel is a great experience for a Jo'burger.... More

We booked and stayed at Lumley's place in Pniel, near Stellenbosch for 2 nights. We really enjoyed the lovely hospitality of the hosts. A mere 5 minutes from Solms Delta and many other wine farms. A delicious breakfast was offered. Room and bathroom was spacious, modern and lovely white linen. Tea and coffee making facilities in room. Highly recommended.
