We had a wonderful stay at Lovane. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was exellent. It is not to far from Stellenbosch (4km). So to it's easy to drive up and down. Will diffently visit this wine estate again. Thanks for the lovely stay.

A very sweet little hotel with lovely staff. Unfortunately our complimentary bottle of wine on arrival nearly sent us packing again! The "Eye Braai" wine tasted like vinegar and made us nervous to try any of their other wines, and we would certainly not stay for a wine tasting! The breakfasts were lovely, but the same can't be said for... More

The cottage is lovely for a family with older kids but not baby friendly at all. Can't close the bathroom door from outside the bathroom which is not ideal when you have small kids. The staff were unfriendly and cold and there was no welcome. We will not be visiting any time soon again.

We stayed in one of the vineyard suites upstairs and they have beautiful views overlooking the vineyards. Its a great place to sit and enjoy some wine and chocolate watching the sun go down. Breakfast is good; cold buffet of cereals, yoghurt, cold meat and cheeses and then a cooked breakfast. Room is serviced every day, but note that towels... More

This visit was our 4th stay at Lovane over the last 7 years and in the best possible way, nothing has changed over this time. The accommodation is lovely and spacious and the setting is beautiful as well as convenient - we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Stellenbosch. We booked the luxury 'Champagne' room again and it was great, huge... More

Very nice clean place very small pool lovely wines that are not sold outside the vineyard due to size. Nice touch of having a bottle on the house left for you when you arrive. Decent breakfast. Would definitely use again

It is easy to drive right past this beautiful boutique wine estate as it sits between a few big names in the wine industry, but I would recommend you drive a little slower as you won't want to miss this one. It is conveniently located close to the town of Stellenbosch, but far enough away that you still get that... More
