We had a lovely stay at Majeka House and had a great meal at Makaron Restaurant. The food and presentation was fantastic and very original. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. I prefer the Mountain View Rooms over the ones on the ground. Unfortunately although the hotel accepts children and has a lovely indoor heated pool, lots of manicured... More

Good place for visiting the winneries and surrounding. Staff is very attentious, but not so informative about the surroundings so better to come with a good idea of what to do/where to go. Good accomodation, wonderful food, and very good spa facilities.

What a charming guest house. It's not quaint - it's designer but still comfortable. The food is superb, the staff attentive and the rooms a delight. If you don't like hotels this a wonderful place to stay. And the Spa is also very good. We had a beautiful dinner in their acclaimed restaurant and spent time in the evenings next... More

This was my third stay at Majeka House. The staff walked the extra mile by preparing a small conference area for my meeting. The service, SPA treatment and food was like before - exceptional. Although the restaurant was closed that evening I was offered a smaller menu. The lamb chops in the bar area with roaring fire were outstanding. Majeka... More

Our stay at Majeka House was simply wonderful. Their staff are all round friendly and charming. The highlight for me was their breakfasts!!!This surpassed my wildest expectations and matched the breakfasts I have enjoyed at luxury hotels such as the W Hotel in Bangkok.The selection of fresh home-made breads and mimosa's were a particular favorite of mine, but there is...

Friends recommended Majeka House as they knew that we wanted somewhere small but with great food. Wow - the food at Makaron, the Restaurant is amazing. If you stay here you must book yourself in for dinner at least one night or you have missed an exceptional dining experience. We were also told about their new Mountain View Suites and... More
