We stayed only for one night. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Tiny TV though. The spa was a bit of a dissapointment as we did not feel welcome immediately and there were people with their kids just hanging around. The spa atmosphere was not very relaxing either, my wife described it feeling a bit like a train station.... More

We had dinner here twice. The location is beautiful and the food is very good too (though not innovative, more conservative but well made). The problem with this place is that they implement service by adding staff with hardly any traing at all. While serving the wine, the waiter obviously had detailed instructions on how to do it, but had... More

The location is idealic, the food is fantastic, the grounds are beautiful, the service is 100% discreet and professional and the staff are unbeatable!

In january, we've spent 3 weeks at the Lanzerac Hotel, like we do every year. The Lanzerac has stolen our hearts. It is situated in a beautiful region, in the middle of vineyards, which ensures a quiet & peaceful surrounding, even so close to the town of Stellenbosch. The historic colonial buildings are decorated with passion & respect for that... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Lanzerac. On arrival we were welcomed with a glass of wine while checking in. It all occurred nice and quickly without any problems. We were escorted to our room, which was hidden at the back, providing a nice peaceful location. The room was perfect and spacious with a magnificent bathroom and a great view... More

We spent Christmas Day at Lanzerac Manor and it was a really disappointing experience! This hotel has no atmosphere or "warmness" and stands like an old dusty lady! We checked in early afternoon and were only offered the remains of a 150 persons buffet, totally disgusting presentation and products not fresh anymore. It was our Christmas day. Service was not...

We stayed 2 nights after flying all night from London. We had arrived at Cape Town in the morning and as we felt so ragged after the flight, we checked in hoping we could have our room. We were told it would be ready in 30 mins which we thought acceptable as we were so early. In fact, they had... More

Lanzerac Manor is a collection of historic Cape Dutch buildings in a glorious setting. Our 1-night stay was a birthday treat for a spa-lover (me!), so it was disappointing to arrive mid afternoon looking forward to a swim and sauna to be told that the spa closes at 1pm on Sundays. Our room was quite nice but not 'wow' as... More

We've stayed at Lanzerac twice before our recent visit in February and absolutely loved it. I was a little disappointed this time however. Not with the hotel but the restaurant actually. Lanzerac is a five star establishment. It's the Grand Dame of Stellenbosch. And it still has plenty of its old world charm, the porters, the reception. Everyone was amazingly... More
