The lodge is located on the Eikendal estate, with its own vineyard and winery. My room was spacious and well-equipped, and the lodge has communal areas where one can sit and read, talk etc. Wine from the estate's winery is served in the afternoon, making for a pleasant unwind before heading out to dinner.

We had a wonderful stay at the Eikendal Lodge. Amazing location within the vineyards. Lovely staff. Incredible breakfast. Only negative point I can find is the new restaurant at Eikendal , it has not the same standards as the lodge. But a lot of really good restaurants in the neighborhood, so that's not an issue. Hope to be back sometime!

We traveled extensively throughout Africa for over a month staying in various B&Bs and NONE compared to Eikendal Lodge! It is ABSOLUTELY the BEST! It is so well run. The breakfast is so beautifully prepared and taste as good as it looks. They even have a happy hour. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are adorable. The view and... More

Very nice location with friendly people. Lovely rooms with nice furniture. The Restaurant nearby has the best pizza we ever had! Pool and garden clean. Calm and quite in the middle of the wineyards.We liked best the nice coulours in the room and the nice offer of wine for the apero.

Well-situated in the winelands. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent. Management extremely helpful and friendly. A fuller DSTV selection (accessible in the room) would be a good improvement.

Beautiful sunsets. Nice Staff. Good Wine. Excellent breakfast, what do you want more? Rooms are looked after very well. I fell like I’m at home. Fly Fishing was also a very nice experience. The place is placed very well only 10 minutes to Stellenbosch.

We stayed in a luxury room in Eikendal Lodge for three nights as part of our first family trip to the Cape. Leonie and Wendy were very helpful in setting up a cot for our five month old daughter, booking dinner reservations at local restaurants, and suggesting a private wine tour company so we could enjoy the wines of the...

A gem tucked away in wine growing vineyards, with big blue mountains in the background, and delicious breakfast in the morning. Close to some of the best restaurants in Stellenbosch. A good nights sleep in a double size room.

This is set in the heart of the Wine lands on the Garden Route between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. Set well off the road so very quiet and peaceful. Mountains behind and vines all around. The accommodation is luxurious with great views from every room. Breakfast is substantial and there is a comfortable lounge. The staff have always been very... More
