My second visit to this fabulous wine estate. This visit I stayed for three nights (July 1, 2 and 3) and was afforded the opportunity to stay in a loft suite (KANONKOP) and the traditional SA MANOR HOUSE which boasts a huge fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, large screen digital TV, a loft suite and separate bedrooms all of which are...

We stayed at the Marianne Manor house for a getaway out of the city, We were given the upper level suite in the manor house that was very spacious, comfortable and clean. Underfloor heating, a fireplace, large en-suite bathroom with an outdoor but private shower were some of the comforts the room had to offer. It also had a large... More

We have not actually visited this estate but plan to do so in the near future. We were introduced to the Marianne wines at the recent Wine & Dine evening at The Mount Nelson Hotel. Absolutely delicious especially the 2008 Merlot. In fact, all the reds were wonderful. We also met the owners, who were hospitable and charming. Looking forward... More

The comfortable, spacious loft apartment was perfect for a family of four. The bathroom was modern and super clean. Not good for people who struggle with stairs but not a problem for us. I will definitely stay here again.

The location is superb. The refurbished loft rooms are impressive. Breakfasts were somewhat disappointing with under cooked bacon and warm bread for toast and we constantly had to ask staff to fill milk jugs, cereal pots and coffee urns. But as long as you ask you will get. Wine tasting was a bit disappointing. A little slow and not very... More

A friends wedding at this venue with accommodation. I had a loft room in the main block which was above the working vineyard. A huge room !!! Beautifully appointed and with an equally impressive bathroom. The vineyard is in the most idyllic location with splendid views in all directions. Wine tasting in the main building was efficient rather than enjoyable... More

Beautiful location. Very quiet, with an authentic Stellenbosch farm feel. Spacious room with big bathroom and big bath tub and double shower. Staff were all very attentive and helpful with recommendations for local activities/eateries. Breakfasts were bacon and eggs, selection of fruits/cereal. Breakfasts could be slightly better. Wifi was useable but 0.6Mbps in rooms.
