4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The gardens are just magnificent. We were very disappointed in our meat platter but the setting just made it all ok. The hotel was under renovation but that didn't interfere with my enjoyment of being there. Was a bit frustrated with reception - as I had guest meeting me for breakfast and I had told reception exactly where I was... More

From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were treated with smiles and welcomes from all the staff throughout the hotel. Our check in was fast and efficient. We booked a standard double room with garden view, and what a lovely room it was- very spacious with a large bathroom with a free-standing shower. The bed was large and... More

From the minute we arrived we felt at home, genuine service, lovely room and overall a superb experience, can't wait to return next January. The gardens are truly spectacular with views of Table Mountain, sitting on the terrace eating 'continental breakfast' was a treat in itself. Service was courteous, if a little haphazard at time (but hey this is Africa).... More

Whether you are in Cape Town for pleasure or business Vineyard offers an excellent atmosphere. I was on a business trip and stayed in one of the 02 bed room cottages with my family (wife and 02 kids). The family had an excellent time in and around this Hotel.

Just spent one week at the Vineyard, one of Cape Town's loveliest and oldest hotels. The hotel has been updated a great deal over the years so that it's an elegant combination of very modern and historic- mixed together quite uniquely. Breakfasts are phenomenal, the grounds are gorgeous - featuring elaborate gardens and river walks along the Liesbek river. It... More

I stay here every year and it gets better and better. The staff are very helpful and very friendly and are always approachable for a conversation. I had a room towards the mountains and it is just breath taking to wake upto every morning. The food is award winning especially the beef fillet and the wine list is to die... More

Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing myself any favours in rating highly a hotel that I love and intend to use again in the future whenever in Cape Town. Will they get complacent? Will they raise their rates? No matter; the Vineyard deserves a good rating anyway. For many years I worked elsewhere South Africa and overseas for a Cape... More

The hotel is located on several acres of beautiful property with fabulous views of Table Mountain just behind it. The food was good, and the beds were great. It is located in the suburbs with only a mall in walking distance. Everything else is a cab ride, and I would suggest a regular cab and not the hotel's contracted shuttle... More
