This is our second stay here and we were not disappointed the standard of this hotel is great and even though they had a problems with water for showers etc (not the Hotels fault just lack of rain so not filling the tanks!) we had no complaints. One of the best moments here is always the 7.00 pm canapés and... More

It is a wonderful and very well kept place, run by Angelo and Tina. Tina was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The manor house is beautiful with a large verandah. Everything is spotlessly clean and there... More

A beautiful hotel in an excellent location. Don't be put off by the 4Km of gravel road leading up to the hotel, treat it as an experience! Room, food, drink, location and genuine hospitality from Angelo & Tina made this stop on our SA tour a fantastic choice.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. The road leading to Grand Dédale, 4.2 km of gravel, falls under the municipal jurisdiction and get graded every six weeks, therefore at time can be pleasantly smooth and at time a bit bumpy; we sincerely hope that the experience of driving through the valley will...

We stayed in the Grand Dedale Country House in the beginning of January. From start to finish we were looked after so well. Our room was beautiful and the food was super too. We look forward to staying in the future.

Like hidden treasure, it wasn't easy to find, but our efforts were well rewarded. The Grande Dedale is simply sublime. Just six suites give the atmosphere of a private house party, encouraged by the 7.15 invitation for pre dinner champagne and canapés with the other guests We're already looking forward to our return next year.
