What a place to escape to from the madness of the city to experience the best of what the Cape has to offer as well as fabulous hospitality. Our hosts we always on hand to advise and offer attention to detail.

Wonderful retreat. The warm welcome I received upon arrival and the effort everyone made to ensure that I was comfortable and cared for left me feeling at home immediately. The chef treated me with wonderful creative vegetarian dishes. I will be back!

We had an absolutely unforgettable two day stay at Grand Dedale. Friendly staff, picturesque surroundings, 5-star gourmet experience with incredible attention to detail. We can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

After a 4km drive along a gravel track you arrive at a tranquil oasis. There were 4 of us so we had two of the downstairs rooms. One having access out onto the veranda with views of the valley which was nice to sit out on before breakfast(Lady Anne Baynard). The other (Andrew Bain) had a conservatory which would be... More

A wonderful two days spent at the Grand Dedale. Sadly we were involved at a wedding so weren't able to partake of the Dinners. The menu however looked absolutely... More

We could not have asked for more. Next door is the Doolhof winery where you can... More

Excellent rooms and facilities. Due to interleading doors being hung we received a complementary bottle of wine. Quite a nice touch. Hosts very hospitable and friendly. Some rooms are in need of touching up for the 5 star rating it has. There were split wooden beams in our room. Other than that the service and staff was great.

Dear Marius, thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Grand Dédale. Thank you also for understanding the slight delay we had faced with hanging new doors and that the small token was well appreciated. I had a very good look at the ceiling beams in your room and I must admit that they have the same... More
