This was my first trip to Marianne, and will not be my last. The vagaries of google led me here but it will be my choice to come back! I spent only one night here, but the staff could not have been more welcoming - I was offered complimentary wine tasting on arrival (delicious) as well as helpful local advice... More

We returned to Marianne for our second trip to the winelands and did not expect them to beat our first experience but they did! The estate has undergone extensive renovation work and we were pleasantly surprised at how the place has changed since our last visit. Management is young, dynamic and enthusiastic about the brand. The winemaking is still the... More

We arrived in the middle of a power cut, so things were a bit difficult, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were shown to a lovely suite, with excellent facilities, and also shown around the winery. We then went out around Stellenbosch and picked up a pizza for later, as we wanted to sample some wines, and... More

My wife and I had a few issues here surrounding service. I sent an email giving feedback and got a very, very genuine reply from Alex, the owner. As such, it isn't right that I list my issues as I feel that Alex dealt with the feedback very well and he has promised to act on it. BE AWARE -... More

I can recommend this hotel for a quiet stay close to Stellenbosch. It`s a 15 minute drive from Stellenbosch itself and a nice estate. Rooms are spacious, the shower and bathtub are perfect for couples :-) Breakfast is served on the terras weather permitting which offers a very relaxing view of the surroundings. The only downside is the service -... More

Anyone looking for peace and quiet in this busy area should spend time at this haven of a vineyard/hotel. Set away from the main road, it offers peace and tranquillity with lovely facilities and charming hosts. The only drawback is the distance to the restaurant but breakfast is served in the winery and "Marianne" is surrounded by lovely eateries as... More

I had a fabulous time at Marianne Wine estate when my boyfriend and I visited on a recent trip in South Africa. Everything about the estate is stunning- the tasting room/ restaurant is beautifully decorated and the views over the countryside are truely breathtaking. We had the biltong and wine tasting paring which was fantastic- the Englishman who lead the... More

I recently stayed at this secret gem in the Winelands and could not have been happier with our accommodation choice. The wine farm is small and every corner is carefully landscaped and beautifully kept. The views are second to none this close to Stellenbosch and the room that we stayed in was spotless, very spacious, thoughtfully furnished and tastefully decorated.... More

We stayed as a family with 2 teens in the Franschhoek room, which was ideal as a big place, with in the middle a living room, 2 bedrooms, a modern bathroom , a separate toilet. The views on the vignards were really nice, but unfortunately from outside. There are though some other minors points to be said: the cleaning of... More
