We stayed for two nights in this hotel in a standard room. The photos and description, the 5 star rating and the price gave us the impression this would be a good stay. It wasn't, despite that we had a large standard room, Nr. 7. The most important thing in a hotel is the bed. This was a disaster: the... More

The place is just beautiful with very charming staff. The garden and pool area offer many shady spots to escape the heat and the sun. Rooms are very charming even if not every detail is top notch. Dinner is good - not great, but after all its a BnB! We definitely recommend Palmiet Valley estate!

In all honesty Palmiet Valley hadn’t been my first choice when looking to book in the wine lands outside of Cape Town as we had wanted to stay in Franschhoek (which was very busy due to us staying the festive period). We ended up being really glad we couldn’t find a place elsewhere in the end as we loved our... More

My husband and I have recently returned from South Africa after having our wedding on the 15th of November. We had seen Palmiet online along with other venues and were lucky enough to be able to view them before the day as we live in Scotland. Palmiet was always my favourite venue however you cannot imagine how beautiful it is... More

Absolutely lovely property and friendly staff. The approach from the highway seems unpromising, but driving through the gate, you reach heavenly gardens and a haven of gentility. The attention to detail and generous, thoughtful sense of hospitality of the owners is evident. Thanks Palmiet for making us feel so at home.

We stayed at the palmiet for 3 nights. We celebrated there our dream wedding. Everything was organized by the hotel manager a few months before our departure via E-Mail contact. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Each individual made our wedding day unforgettable. The grounds were beautiful and our accommodation a dream. The complex is huge and therefore offered many...

To anyone and everyone planning a joyous,effortless wedding..... THIS IS IT!!!! We live in Gauteng and it literally took 1 email to get the ball rolling. We had not seen the venue before, no-one had recommended it, but the images were very impressive. Even before seeing the venue, we sent the deposit. +- 2 months later we flew down to... More

I read all the great reviews and booked a night for our 25th wedding anniversary. I am not a complaining type of person and didn't want to spoil our special day by doing so, but we were quite disappointed. The setting is stunning and the room looked lovely, there was a double shower but we could only use one at... More

A beautiful location, easy to get to and a wonderful place. It is tastefully decorated and excellent value for what you get. Fresh roses on our pillows every time the room was cleaned which smelt incredible. The rooms are stunning and decorated with beautiful antique furniture. The food is scrumptious (both breakfast and supper), the gardens and pool are beautiful... More

We stayed only one night, but we would have liked to stay longer. As soon as you enter the gate it is as if you have time travelled back in time. No hectic there everything beautiful and quiet. Rooms excellent filled with antiques, breakfast divine, always fresh cut flowers everywhere. We didn't want to leave the next day. Thank you... More
