The quality of this country house is first rate. The rooms are elegant, and the grounds nice to explore. There was a well marked trail that was perfect for biking or hiking. We spent three nights at the house and for two of these nights, we were the only guests. The management was rarely seen so we had the whole... More

We had a truly wonderful stay at Grand Dedale near Wellington. The homestead is very elegantly decorated. The staff are wonderful - Brighton was outstanding!His eager professionalism was a treat. Angelo was a natural host and it was lovely to dine at the establishment instead of having to venture out. It had old world charm and grace. We cannot wait... More

A Highlight in the life's of each one in our family! Perfect setting in the mountains where we experienced snow and warm sunshine weather in one weekend combined with excellent service. The staff were great, never in your space but always around.

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
