The receptionist was friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean , bright and inviting and the general atmosphere around the lodge was warm, relaxed and pleasant. Breakfast was delicious with nutritious vegetarian options. We would definitely stay there again! Thank you.

Very well located on a wine farm with great restaurant on premises. Out of town thus nice and quiet, and in the centre of all the great attractions of WCape. Rooms are excellent and spacious. Very good breakfast. The grounds need a little TLC though...

This is one of the best country houses we have stayed at. The service was amazing and i can recommend the restaurant, the host, Conraad, will entertain you and make you feel welcome! We have been back twice since staying there.

Just stayed for two nights at this guesthouse, which is adjacent to the restaurant 96, Winery Road. (See our review) Although it was relatively clean it was a little stark & soulless. Lacking the personal touch we have received elsewhere in The Cape. Our room needed some TLC.

This B&B was recently acquired by the adjoining restaurant 96 Winery Road and it in the process of being revitalised. Pretty grounds with far reaching views of Table Mountain and across vineyards. Rooms are of varying size and have different amenities. Some with showers some with bathrooms and showers some with views others rather dark. Some with very large double... More

Thank you The Country Guesthouse for a lovely stay. We have been going there time and again when visiting the Winelands from Namibia.

Ancient oak trees set the tone for a fabulously relaxed weekend at The Country Guesthouse. The Family Suite was absolutely perfect for us and the (very large) private lounge made the perfect setting for Saturday afternoon Springbok rugby. The rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and the beds incredibly comfortable. A glass of red wine on the porch... More
