If you want to get away (from it all, cell, people) and yet be relatively close in to the winelands of the Western Cape, then this is the place for you. 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 stayed here for a few days for the wedding of my girlfriend's twin brother. The hotel is simply stunning (the bedrooms huge, very clean and so comfortable) the staff welcoming and highly attentive (no request was too big) and the views just magical. 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

This was our second visit to Grand Dédale, so we knew what to expect when we booked. But it was more than that. The setting is perfect, the weather was beautiful, the room was clean and luxurious, the food devine, the winetasting at Doolhof enjoyable, and the service (only a bit slow at breakfast but we did not mind as...

Service is very poor, not professional ,food is not what we normally expect in SA. Very poor breakfast, ,champagne was flat.Not... More

This place is absolutely perfect. There is no way anybody could fault it. The rooms are beautifully appointed, cosy, luxurious. The grounds are impeccably kept, the staff friendly and helpful, the service second to none and the food outstanding. If we come back to this area on another holiday we will stay at Grand Dedale without a doubt. Highly recommended.

Just back from our third stay at Grand Dedale. We stayed for a week and enjoyed it just as much as our other stays. Tina and Angelo are wonderful hosts and we cannot fault anything at Grand Dedale. Such a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting.

We anticipated that the Grand Dedale would be something special, but our stay was far more than we could have imagined. The Management of Angelo and Tina was superb and this was backed up by the staff that made sure we had all the attention and yet allowed us the necessary privacy. The food was incredible, the presentation, and taste... More

We unfortunately spent only 2 nights - the place deserves a longer stay. A spectacularly restored 1700s farm with deluxe but not overly pricey accommodations. A small number of rooms so an intimate feel. Beautiful grounds for walks. Not a tourist trap as some of the other towns in the area. Your hosts, Tina and Angelo, are superb as well... More
