3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It felt like staying in someone's house! Noisy wooden floors. Bedroom furnishings and fittings and the bathrooms are out dated. Needs some money spent on it. Garden area is lovely for breakfast and to relax in. Well located. Friendly helpful staff. Very home from home atmosphere.

Our third visit at about 4 year intervals. Highlights included convenience for Lourensford and Vergelegen wineries with their very good wine tasting and dining facilities and Erinvale G.C. Since the new owners have taken over, our Manor House room had been refurbished to Boutique Hotel standard and had a stylish new bathroom, was redecorated in neutral tones and was very... More

We chose to stay at Albourne based on the excellent reviews it has received on Trip Advisor and other sites. We were quite disappointed to arrive and find that the room was very small and merely average -- as my partner put it, we felt as though we were visiting a friend's house and staying in the maid's quarters. There... More

Well what to say. This place is fab, absolutely lovely. We rented rooms 13 and 14 and were really pleased. (Garden rooms i think they're called). Our rooms were very simple, modern, non overstated, spacious and clean, with air conditioning and wifi available. Everything you need. They even have a brochure in the room with recommendations for restaurants near by.... More

Our room, one of the courtyard rooms, would need a little bit of maintenance but nothing serious (fresh paint,new chairs maybe). What we really did not like, but this is of course a... More

Due to our positive first experience we stayed at Albourne for the second time, using it as the starting point for our trip through South Africa. The premises are exceptional, a charming old Dutch house and a wonderful garden. But above all we love the outstanding hospitality of the whole team. And they didn't stop there - we were really...

Beautiful manor house and garden with very clean swimming pool and lots of extras to enjoy and make your stay much more than the average. The staff helped me to check-in online too and print our boarding passes even though they were very busy with breakfasts at the time. Next time we would stay longer and visit some of the... More
