What was supposed to be a relaxing 3 nights/2 day (Friday to Sunday) stay was anything but. We arrived late and exhausted in pouring rain and were not offered umbrellas to go to our outside room. In general the staff were warm and efficient, the setting and old-world ambience what we'd expected. Thereafter things went steadily downhill. We had a... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful getaway weekend at the Lanzerac Hotel and Spa in April this year. We could not falter on any service,accommodation,meals or the spa treatment. In particular we also enjoyed the new wine tasting deli tasting excellent wines and a great cheese and cold meat platter. We will certainly return for a re-union soon.

There is a wine tasting area - again all wonderful. And if you want to have lunch or a snack on the estate, the Deli is loaded with interesting dishes... More

Had the chance to stay for two days in this beautiful property and liked everything: the surrounding vineyards, the view to the mountains, the old style chic and spacious room and the restaurant have been beyond our expectations. Don't miss it if you're around, Stellenbosh is worth the trip from Cape Town

the Hotel is one of the best for me it is quiet with good view to the mountains, old oak trees and a nice garden. a very good restaurant with great wine and a nice place in the garden. the wine tasting is just great and if you can try the old wines like the pinotage from 1995.

My wife and I visit Lanzerac on average twice annually (and have done so for the past eight years) and it never disappoints. The staff are friendly and efficient and the manager, Hans Steyn, is superb (also it is worth engaging with the barman, Hermanus, who has been with the hotel for over forty years for an interesting insight into...
