The rooms were spacious and clean, especially the executive suite was nicely furnished. I would highly recommend dining at the hotel, the food was excellent! We rented a car and found the location of the hotel very convenient. During the sunset the view from the hotel to the valley is quite something. The next visit has already been booked!

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and surely would like to come back. The views are stunning; It is surrounded by the mountains and there are trails for walking around the wine farms. The dinner was gastronomical and the rooms gives you the impression that you are in a palace! and for those who love SA wines, this... More

This is a beautiful spot. Very nice view in all directions overlooking the area vineyards. We were there for an evening meal which was excellent. The staff were smiling and friendly to a tee, the managerial staff was on hand to ensure everything was to order and taken care of. The meal was excellently prepared to our taste and you... More

This was by far our favourite winery. We had a great waiter who had been there for 11 years. He knew his stuff so well, we were very impressed. They had to re plant all their vines a few years ago, so they are re building, and I have to say they did a stupendous job ! The wines paired... More

The hotel room was near perfect (Vineyard Luxury Double Room). Breakfasts on the terrace were, as ever, brilliant. The staff excelled themselves. Yes, we have have known them and their families for over 40 years. They work as a team. A very happy team. Devon Valley is a very special place - so perfectly located near to Stellenbosch, the Strand... More

We did not stay over at the hotel but spent a good few hours savoring the delightful dishes on the Sunday Lunch Buffet Menu. My sister-in-law chose "Flavours" as the place to celebrate her 50th birthday and what a lovely time was enjoyed by all present! The staff's attention to detail (a 'happy birthday' song towards to end of the... More

On our first visit to South Africa we spent 6 wonderful nights at the Devon Valley Hotel and loved every minuts of it. Relaxing place with beautiful views over a valley full of vineyards and farms. Helpful and friendly staff and a breakfast buffet that started every morning with a full stomach and a smile. Some of the best wine... More

Easter Sunday dinner with friends, there were not many places open so we ended up at the Devon Valley hotel restaurant. It was a poor choice, staff were slow and unhelpful, food was poorly presented, the looks didn't deceive and it was tired and expensive. The hotel felt run down, staff unenthusiastic, perhaps exhausted after a busy holiday weekend? Access... More

warm welcome with freshly squeezed orange juice totally unexpected. The room (52) had wide sliding doors lovely views and a really comfortable bed. The restuarant serves great meals: we had a lovely tasty dinner served well with a very attentive server. Breakfast and lunch is also served on the terrace which has a wonderful view of the mountains. Lovely clean... More

Coming towards the end of a fabulous although tiring tour of SA, arriving here we felt immediately relaxed. The welcome was friendly and the room was very comfortable. The outlook from our room was over the valley which was beautiful. It was lovely to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine with the sun going down and then... More
