We spent 1 night at this beautiful property and fell in love with it! From the tasteful furnishings and decor to the excellent personal service and the magnificent outdoor area, this was one of the best properties I have visited!

We had a blissful stay at Grand Dedale. The service and venue are simply unmatched. We loved the decor, the style and the fact that everything was thought out right down to the finest details. This is a luxurious stay that will be tough to beat.

The stay at the Grand Dedale was beyond words. Very beautiful and peaceful surroundings, extraordinary house and room (ours was on the ground floor), very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast, complimentary drinks and afternoon tea were great. Overall a fantastic weekend in the most relaxing place I have ever been. On a side note, we thought the dinner food could... More

We celebrated our anniversary by booking the beautiful cottage. When we arrived we were the only guests for the weekend (the venue just re-opened after a short break for renovations). We were spoilt rotten by all the staff our host and and the excellent chef did not hold back on variety or quality. The decor is absolutely exquisite with many... More

Beautiful room, setting and great food. The decor was divine. The perfect place for a nice romantic little getaway. Loved the loft rooms. Would definitely love to come back soon with my mountain bike.

If we were to give a grade, it would be an A+ for the cuisine, location, ambiance and accommodations. We stayed in The Cottage, private and very "classy" with a... More

The dramatic mountainous backdrop framed the vineyards and estate beautifully. The large verandah around the manor house offers lovely views the pastures below. The loft room (Groenberg) was a delight - spacious but cosy with a massive bathroom. Great host and staff! Will return most definitely!

This place is a postcard. The views (when the mountain is not on fire) is tangible serenity. There are horses, wine walks, homely cats, and wine tasting. Service is impeccable, formal, and precise. The dinners were taste sensation.
