The hotel is situated in a very nice and charming place. The stuff is very friendly. It is right that it is not very modern but it makes feel yourself back in history. It is really recommendable although might be a little bit expensive.

The best part of this hotel is the restaurant! We had a wonderful lunch and breakfast there and it was all sublime! The hotel itself is a historic building so if you like something with a bit of history and character, you will enjoy it. It is not as modern as many other hotels but I quite like that they... More

Rooms were fine, although nothing special. Get better value for money and nicer roo s in dewaterkant cape town for 30% of the price, stuffy and old needing a revamp of style and overall furnishings. Spa great, dinners lovely, breakfasts unquestionably amazing...but rooms were quite a big let down.

I stayed at the Lanzerac for two nights - the Staff was EXTREMELY friendly and happy to assist - she is a Grand Lady at the age of 300 years - very relaxing atmosphere and the SPA was SIMPLY enjoyable, the healing hands of Megan allowed me to cope with the rest of my stay in comport

We stayed at Lanzerac in Stellenbosch in April 2012. The hotel is part of the Lanzerac wine estate and is set in mountainous beautiful surroundings. The hotel is like something from 1950s Britain but that doesn’t mean that it is in any way run down or lacks mod-cons. The owners have some how managed to install the modern necessities (in-room...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. The rooms are basic and not modern, I would expect more from a 5 star hotel. The food is excellent, as is the wine, the Pinotage was so good. There are not enough lounge chairs for the guests so we could not lie out in the sun by the pool. The grounds... More

It was no surprise to hear that a few days after our visit, we heard, but can't confirm, that the owners had announced the sale of the business, this hotel and another winery a short distance away. It really needs a bit of a push to get it back to where it should be, given the superb situation, the potential... More

Our rating is average for this class of hotel. We chose the Lanzerac for a 1 night spa break. The venue itself is lovely and old and well maintained. It is old style and the rooms certainly aren't modern, but they are large, neat and comfortable. The spa treatments were very good. The general service was good and very polite... More

Don't listen to the folks that say it is far from town center. It is the perfect distance on bike and an easy taxi. The tranquility here is why I loved it so much and if that is what you are looking for, treat yourself. The rooms and the spa are outstanding. I wish I could give it 6 stars.

This hotel/winery has some good things going for it, but they are offset by its disadvantages. On the positive side, the setting is beautiful, with acres of vineyards surrounded by mountains. But for those of us who prefer to be near city centres where we can leave our cars and set off on foot, the distance of this hotel (more... More
