I prefer modern establishments but I suppose it is appropriate for the area. Its the old school 5 star. Example no LCD TV... The spa is however really outstanding.

We stayed there a while ago but the hotel was very good. Our first two (yes two) rooms had problems with the water (brown sludge in it) which was awful but the staff handled it very well and we were given a great suite in a bungalow. Excellent (although the bed was a little small) and we really enjoyed our... More

Having booked two nights in beautiful Stellenbosch at this hotel, our family of three were looking forward to celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. Parked as guided in 'guest parking' some way from the hotel entrance and carried luggage without assistance to check in. Met three people during this process, two behind the counter and one who brought us our drinks.... More

Beautiful location, however the rooms are very tired. Staff not particularly accommodating. Wifi in room not working. Parking is a mile off. They offer a valet service but the guy is slow and hard to find. Technically 5 star, but for the price you can definitely do a lot better.

We stayed at the Lanzerac for the start of our Honeymoon. I emailed in advance to request petals on arrival and selected a bottle of a cap classique after being given a list of options. The room we were given was fabulous, huge and even had under floor heating. And it was ready at around half nine in the morning... More

The location of the hotel is spectacular in the winelands. The hot weather helped and allowed me to recharge my batteries in the Spa and do the Celler Tour and wine tasting. Two excellent wines are Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sauvignon Blanc. Little tip is to buy your wine here and take it to the restaurant for dinner. Two people... More

We have just spent 4 superb nights at this beautiful old Cape Dutch Hotel. The service was amazing - the rooms were just terrific - the breakfast buffets have to be seen to be believed and the dining room service was the best that I have ever experienced - nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We loved them!!... More

I stayed at Lanzerac for a weekend in Aug. 11 based on a recommendation from a South African friend who said a stay here was a must. Overall, I had a very nice time. At one time, this hotel must have been the height of grandeur. The grounds are lovely, tucked in amongst mountains. But given that the hotel is... More

Located just out of Stellenbosch, the whole estate is a gem itself. We had a lovely modern and spacious room with a little terrace overlooking the vineyards. Upon arrival my partner and I received a glass of Rosé wine and later complimentary snacks were served in our room. Two bars invite with greadt design and a great variety of drinks... More

Having lived in this area for 2 years, it is always good to go back. I have recently spent there a week, though it was a business trip. Very calm and peaceful location with a nice view of the mountain. Rooms are very spacious and staff were extremelly helpful and friendly. Noticed that my room did not have a safe... More
