We stayed 2 days with my wife at the end of our Garden Route trip. The hotel setting is great but the rooms are very old fashioned (part of the charm) and do not offer the latest of comfort. Breakfast is great. The food at the restaurant is OK but could be widely improved. Booking at the spa was a... More

Lovely stay at this hotel. First visit and will return soon. Estate is well manicured, rooms individually decorated with care, great meal and friendly staff. The full package is what you can find here. Afternoon tea at the deli after a winetasting was special. Will enjoy spa with next visit- looks real promising. A place full of character with a... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Lanzerac. From the starting point everything was 5*. From making the teservation to the surprise treats in our room for our anniversary to the superb dinner at the hotel was an unforgettable experience. The rooms are beautiful and the staff super attentive. We were treated like royalty by everyone we encountered and the... More

My wife and I visited South Africa from the UK in February and stayed at the Lanzerac Hotel for 2 nights. We thought the hotel setting was superb. The staff were generally helpful and efficient and the room was clean and well appointed. The restaurant was disappointing, however - on both nights our choice of salmon for the main course... More

Hotel delightful. Rooms excellent and a lovely situation. The breakfast was good and the staff aimed to please. We were there for two nights and had a full schedule so did not even see the spa. The dinner, food very good service best described as unhurried.

In the tird week of February I visited Lanzerac Spa together with a friend. Both of us got a warm welcome by one of the ladies behind the reception. After getting changed, two therapists came to pick us up and brought us to seperate rooms. The designated room was very clean, smelled good, was calm and relaxing! The massage was... More

My daughter and I booked a full day at the Lanzerac Spa. We booked a 2 hour treatment to be followed by a manicure and pedicure each. Not cheap. As well as lunch. The facilities are old and tired. Sauna and steam room - not clean. The Jacuzzi's temp was so hot we could not get in to it. In... More

The setting of the Lanzerac is truly incomparable. Whereas the most beautiful French wineries are set at best in rolling hills, but mostly in flattish areas, the Lanzerac has the backdrop of the monumental Stellenbosch mountains and more specifically the Jonkershoek. Even though it is right on the edge of a metropolitan area, there is nothing but spectacular nature to... More

I stayed for 1 night only (luxurr room), which was too short to experience everything the hotel/spa has to offer. All staff was very friendly, not always as quick as I had expected but overall very good client service. The estate has some of the most amazing views in the winelands, which you can enjoy from your private patio or... More

I booked a couples massage, from the start it seemed unorganized. our email confirmation said we could pay at the end of our treatment, then I was called and asked for deposit. Our massage was meant to be outside, no one told us that it was not going to be. They called us the wrong names, the students didn't know... More
