The place is a hidden gem in the Winelands of the Western Cape. It is perfect to relax. The staff of the Grand Dedale is very friendly and the service is awesome. An awesome place for a couple's retreat.

We visited Grande Dedale for a weekend in August & it exceeded our expectations. The location is stunning. We had one of the cheaper rooms upstairs but I thought they were better than the pricier ones. I wish we could have stayed longer. The only thing, it would have been nice if there were a couple of options for the... More

The service was 5-star and personal without being intrusive; furnishing, decor and amenities top notch (and very romantic); our upstairs superior thatched room (Limietberg) very spacious and super-cosy; the food was divine and our special dietary requests had been wonderfully catered for; we loved every aspect of our stay except until late at night there were noisy guests downstairs and...

Lovely old cape dutch home on a vineyard, beautifully restored. The hosts were wonderful as were all of the staff. Would definately return to visit. Exceptionally good winter specials as well. Food was good; breakfast was excellent but would suggest considering some options for the dinner menu.

My husband and I stayed at Grand Dedale for the weekend. The 45 minute drive there from Cape Town is incredibly beautiful. It was raining when we arrived at the Estate we were met by the manager who greeted us at our car with two enormous umbrellas. It was a luxury experience from the very beginning. Warm, friendly staff and... More

I actually visited alone but even so I could see the romance of this place. Gorgeous grounds, lovely out-of-the-way location with plenty of walks and hikes. The hosts can't do enough to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Dinner isn't included but the hotel is a fair distance from any restaurants and the food at Grand Dedale is very good... More

If you are looking for some quiet solitude Grand Dedale may tick all of the boxes. It is positioned very close to Cape Town and situated at the end of a country road which is delightful. The environment is comfortable and tasteful and all your needs are catered for. We were slightly challenged with hot water over the weekend which... More

What a beautiful location in the valley, surrounded by mountains, citrus trees and horses-breathtaking! Exquisite 5star boutique hotel, superb decor, big warm cosy fireplace, sherry, chandeliers....salmon, champagne. Enough...I will be back. What a function, celebration venue, accommodates 14 people, definitely "grand". Kids might be bored, but a great escape for couples. Lady ann Barnard room lovely. Super winter romantic deal.... More

It doesn’t get better than this – silver service in a grand Cape Dutch Manor House on a wine estate at the base of a mountain near Wellington in the Western Cape. Beautifully restored, or should I say transformed, Grand Dedale has glossy porcelain tiles, chandelier, and elegant upholstered chairs. When I arrive there is a fashion shoot in progress,... More
