We stayed there for two nights. We had already a great lunch in their restaurant and a very nice wine tasting at their estate before our check-in. Our bedroom was lovely, nice decorated, very clean with a small private terrace. We went for a walk between the wine yards with its spectacular views. Everything was just perfect. Breakfast on their... More

We stayed here two nights in January 2016 as part of our honeymoon trip. The location of Knorhoek is perfect for a wine tour and you can start at Knorhoek itself. The rooms are basic but have everything you need and most importantly, they are clean. Breakfast buffet had a great home made muesli! One night we stayed for the... More

Guesthouse was comfortable and reception was good. Wine tasting around the corner. Some of the best Cape wines. The best wines are Cab Frank, Merlot, Cab Sav , Bordeaux blend and Shiraz. Wines are well oaked and all are easy to drink.

Part of a wedding group, one would have hoped for better staff reception & happy faces for the weekend! When the Brides parents & guests arrive for breakfast 5 minutes early ,do not send them away saying you are not ready for another 30 minutes-offer some coffee instead! If the only key to the safe in the room doesn't fit,... More

Dear Lindym Thank you for your review and the wonderful compliments about the venue. I shall look into your comments about the weekend shift - I presume it was a week ago - and find out who the reception staff were. Unfriendly reception is unacceptable. Sincerely Carol More

We stopped here for one day on a meandering tour from Cape Town to Hermanus. The setting is wonderful, the accommodation comfortable and the food and wine excellent. It's a very relaxed and welcoming place and I would gladly have stayed longer.

Knorhoek's accommodation is reasonably priced and adequate for an overnight stay. I felt like the actual experience was missing something though when compared to how the accommodation was advertised... The attic room that I stayed in was decorated in an 'old' style with a ball and claw bath tub...but the room had a kind of clinical feel caused in part... More

We visited Knorhoek estate today and we were pleasantly surprised. The wine was really good and we treated ourselves on the cheese platter, which is a MUST when you visit Knorhoek. What we really enjoyed most was that it is a relatively small estate without the mass tourists. This allowed us to enjoy in peace!
