Was so sceptical of the offer, too good to be true, expected the bare minimum, at the end I can just say take it up quick as it’s only available until end September and an absolute steal at R699 per couple. The three course set Daddy’s deal meal turned out to be a wonderful dining experience, the service was also... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Country Guest House. The cottage was amazing (and the fireplace a big PLUS) and we really enjoyed breakfast (in the breakfast room) and dinner at 96 Winery Road - dinner was the perfect mix fine vs casual dining. We will definitely be back soon!

Top quality! Staff very friendly, location beautiful, rooms very pretty & clean, breakfast great! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for accommodation in the Cape Winelands. There is a wonderful restaurant on the property too, 96 Winery Rd. The food and wine selection are both excellent.

We spent 2 days at your hotel. Room and bathroom was nice and spacious, staff was friendly, obliging and knowledgeable. We were very cold and asked for rugs to be put down on the floors.

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.

I always love my stays here and the team are fantastic!! the only thing better than the rooms and the views is the food at the restaurant. Be sure to eat the duck and red cherry pie- I had it twice and the fetcook is great

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.
