We spent one night at The Lanzerac during our tour through the Cape Winelands. This historic hotel is furnished with fine antiques and artworks, in a magnificent setting. Our luxury suite was very spacious, beautifully decorated, and had a paved patio with seating overlooking the adjacent vineyards. The bathroom was well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and efficient,... More

We visited this establishment last Festive season and thoroughly enjoyed the wine and chocolate tasting so much so we are back this Christmas and will certainly be visiting again may even try the Resturant. We have visited many of the wineries in Stellenbosch and Constantia and also the Robertson Valley and this is certainly as good as any

Many thanks for your positive comments with regards to our Tasting Room and wine pairings on offer. Lanzerac lends itself so well to day visitors, with many attractions open to the public - wine tasting, afternoon or evening dining and spa treatments. We look forward to welcoming you back to explore more of what the Estate has to offer. More

Enjoyed the setting, the wine, the food and the setting. Were there just for the lunch from Capetown. Did not stay. The place looked interesting and will be a definite option for staying on some future visit.

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.

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.
