As the subject would suggest, it is one of the finest hotels/spa that I have stayed in full of unmistakable (British) character, right next to vineyards. The whole ambience is luxurious, and takes you to another time. The food is pretty good, the location at the foothills couldn't be better. Highly personalised service, beautifully appointed rooms and a lovely dining... More

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...

Went for lunch and booked for romantic dinner as well. Had been told that it had gone downhill over the years, but the new owners have brought it up to scratch. Great setting with the old house and the mountains behind. Lovely outdoor seating under the trees. Attentive service. Good food, well presented. Just what I happily remembered.
