We had the most relaxing and blissful holiday here, and nothing was too much trouble for the new owners, Beulah and Jan. These two really know how to spoil their guests! We dined like king & queen, even took advantage of the wonderful cooking and invited a big party of friends for 5*dinner. Villa Exner provides a beautiful environment for... More

I was on a last minute business trip. I was very surprised to find such a lovely hotel in such a small town. This is definitely a hidden gem in the Cape Town area. I will come back on my next trip to Cape Town (business or leisure)!

Villa Exner was a lovely place to stay for a bit of a spoil before we attempted the Wines to Whales Mountain Bike challenge. The evening meal was superb and the hosts very gracious and accommodating. Well worth it - we will definitely frequent it again when we can!

We've been staying at Villa Exner for the last 3 years and would not do the W2W cycling event if we can't stay there. The rooms are great, the service faultless and the dinner and breakfast just what cyclists need.

We have stayed at Villa Exner for 12 nights over new year. The hotel is a "re-formated" private villa with a big and beautiful garden, where there is a wonderful pool terrace and annexes with additional rooms. We, a family of three, had the entire left hand annex with two bedrooms and a living room in between and therfore had... More

We had a lovely meal one night at the "Poolroom" at the Oak valley wine estate which was arranged and suggested by our hosts. It was divine and... More

I discover this hotel by chance and I was absolutely not disappointed ! Nice deco ! Clean & cosy rooms. Good bedding. Clean & functional bathroom with a hot powerful shower stream. Perfect after an outdoor activity. The owners are helpful & friendly. I shall return !

Unfortunately, this was not on my top ten list of weekend getaways! The owners have no sense of humour, no sense of hospitality and no sense of style. The venue is austere like its owners and with a cold room and harsh decor, this is one to be missed! Nothing to redeem this "hotel" I'm afraid... just not worth the... More

Very stylish luxury boutique hotel where hands-on owners ensure that all requirements are met in an understated professional and friendly manner. Superb and inventive breakfasts, different each day with wonderful evening meal if ordered in advance. The rooms, all different, spacious, were spacious, extremely comfortable and very stylishly and inventively decorated. All set in quiet and beautiful gardens.
