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

Just one night's stay - and that is probably not fair - as you can easily stay here for more days. We had a large, spacious room with a very homey feeling, nicely decorated and flowers strewn all around. It is obvious that the hosts are very attentative and want to make you feel welcome and appreciated. And we did!... More

Thanks Leonie and Wendy and all the staff (and of course, Jack!). We loved your hospitality and attention to detail. I hope to be back sometime! Very central to freeways and wine lands. Your restaurant suggestions were superb too.

Great host, made us feel very welcome. Rooms were clean, and beds comfy. We had a friends wedding in the area, and were recommended Eikendal Lodge. We enjoyed the complementary wine tasting on the day of arrival. The perfect end to the stay was the great breakfast the next morning.

Nice people at reception; very good rooms in a good condition; good service; feeling like home or at good friends. A excellent wine tasting! This questionnaire is a little bit stuppit! The context will not be better with more characters! :-)

We used the Eikendal Lodge as our base for our visit in the Western Cape for our 10-day stay. The staff are friendly, attentive and very forthcoming. We felt very much at home by the entire crew especially Leonie and Wendy and of course Jack (the quasi-mascot). The winery and attached restaurant are also highly recommendable. All-in-all a delightful stay.... More

We stayed for 2 nights as a guest on the Eikendal Lodge. A great facility in the middle of the vineyards and very well furnished rooms. A highlight is the great service and extremely friendly staff. The breakfast was the best we've got in South Africa.

You may have seen my reviews of Eikendal Lodge from previous holidays - our first visit was in 1996! All I can say after this year's holiday there, is that the experience is every bit as good as ever - best breakfasts we have found in nearly 20 years visiting most parts of South Africa. Leonie Fourie is the perfect... More
