Being completely local, I have never really bothered with visiting the Vineyard Hotel apart from once when I had to go interview someone (but then the weather was miserable and I didn't venture further than one of the rooms). I had the chance to spend an afternoon on the terrace on a lovely summer's afternoon and wow, all I can... More

This hotel is impeccable. Beautiful rooms and gardens, clean, and modern. The breakfast buffet is unlike any that I've ever experienced - honey is dispensed straight from the honeycomb, smoked salmon, fruits, pastries of all sorts, fresh squeezed juices, custom omelettes, tea, coffee - the list goes on and on. We ate like kings. Room service is actually the exact... More

I opted for the Table Mountain view room and it was very comfortable. What a lovely surprise to have found out this hotel: beautiful gardens, and I enjoyed an early morning stroll along the paths...would only meet a tortoise or a cat. Usually old hotel have some weird vibes, but this one does not and the way they incorporated the... More

We stayed there for 5 nights for a family wedding. Breakfast was included in our rate and the Buffett was complete with lots of choices. Food was good. The gardens were beautiful. Nice walking path. Outdoor pool looked nice but it was too cold while we were there to take advantage if it. Nice little gym too. Some rooms were... More

The many acres of gardens are so much fun to explore. We felt like we were staying in a Botanical Garden. Unbelievable. The room was nice with a view of the back garden. The food was good sometimes and sometimes not. A tuna sandwich without tuna became a joke with our group. One night, when we knew we would be... More

Dear Cynthia, Thank you for your feedback – we always value constructive criticism. I am disappointed to hear about your experiences with our restaurants, as they are generally known for their fantastic food. While I am glad to hear that we were able to accommodate you for dinner, we understand that this doesn’t make up for the preceding events. I... More

I had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. The rooms are well appointed snd the hotel is tastefully decorated. The selection and quality of food will satisfy most palates, the wine list is extensive and the service was faultless.

I attended a three day conference at the Vineyard in November 2014 and what a superb venue for a conference. The food is excellent as well as the service from the staff members. The rooms are well equipped and spacious, allowing for interactive group work if necessary. There is a breathtaking view of Table Mountain and the surroundings are well... More

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel, it's perfect if you want to get away from the hustle of the waterfront and city centre. Views of table mountain and the lush gardens make this a most beautiful setting. Thrown in an award winning spa and restaurant and you know why this hotel is so popular.

We stayed at the Vineyard for 3 nights at the end of October, 2014. We had a fantastic time. The hotel is beautiful, safe, comfortable, and service is great. The grounds are beautiful!

Dear Anna, Thank you for your feedback – we are so happy to hear you had a fantastic time with us.
