This is tucked away in a very quiet location amongst the vineyards. Wonderful garden and pond which attracts many birds and other wildlife. The room (Sauvignon) was in the main part of the building. The bathroom was very disappointing as was the 'walk in wardrobe' area. The wardrobes looked unfinished and poor quality and only contained 3 coat hangers in... More

This is a real gem and well hidden! Quite,perfect rooms, great hospitality and the food is a class of its own. The only thing we missed was some deck chairs to tan in the sun. Besides that, nothing to complain at all.

We booked a single night with supper as a stopover on our way from Joburg to Clanwilliam. Echoing previous sentiments, we wished we had stayed longer. Our room (Ruby Cabernet) was breathtaking. In fact we thought it was part of the public area at first, it was so big. Supper, cooked and served by Hannes was excellent, and the local... More

Dit is defnitief die plek om oor te slaap.Die gasvryheid was eg en uit die hart.Die kamers besonders en romanties so tussen die wingerde.Die rustigheid is net wat n mens nodig het na n lang dag se reis met voedsel wat die siel sowel as die maag voed. Die kamers was onberispelik netjies en enig in sy soort.Ek sal beslis... More

I made a late booking on Friday afternoon. In spite of this, I received a warm-hearted welcome and all details were paid attention to during my stay even though I was the only guest. Rooms are spacious, clean and beautifully decorated.

Our stay at the African Vineyard was a tranquil, beautiful experience. The room, big enough to fit a flat into, was furnished with unique custom made furniture, there was a cosy fireplace with leather couches and a welcome sherry and the bathroom was beautiful with every detail carefully attended to. Dinner was served by Hannes and was delicious! Detail like... More

What a wonderful place. We were over the moon with the accommodation, food and service. The staff were very well trained and helpful. The venue was a great surprise to us and unexpected. To all involved what a great job.

What an absolutely wonderful experience! The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. I will definitely come back again and again. The attention to detail to make every guest feel welcome and at home is overwhelming. Well done Elmarie for promoting the local wines and artists! This was definitely a home away from home!

If you like nature and need a place to unwind, even just for a weekend, I'd recommend the African Vineyard. The owners and staff were very friendly and most accommodating to our needs (and wants). It's peaceful and worth every star. Service Excellence at its best.

After a long day on the road, a super reception at the Vineyards, a refreshing walk on the property absorbing the late afternoon fresh air, birds singing away the day and natural sounds of the little stream and its inhabitants welcoming the nightfall followed by a fantastic meal a paired with local produce wine and company a good nights sleep...
