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.

What a fabulous place to "escape" to for a few days when visiting Cape Town. We stayed three nights and wished we had made it four or five, at least. 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.

We had the most fantastic two days at Grand Dedale. From the gorgeous contemporary décor which is so elegantly mixed with special antiques, to the super romantic and comfy room in the loft, to the sumptuous dinner and breakfasts, we couldn't fault a thing. Angelo and Tina are the most hospitable hosts and went out of their way to make... More

Food is very good. There is a winery on the same site so you can taste the local vintage whilst relaxing at... More

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!
