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

Grand Dedale is one of those places you don't want to leave! We spent three Christmas days at this beautiful place 'hidden' in a valley behind the mountains near Paarl and Wellington.

Grand Dedale is located approximately 4km down a private road in the heart of the Cape Winelands. It's only a 40 minute drive from Cape Town airport, so it's a perfect retreat to combine with a stay in the city. Believe all the fantastic reviews about Grand Dedale because we honestly cannot think of a single thing to fault. The... More

Lovely surroundings, beautiful room and excellent food and wine. The staff led by Angelo were friendly and helpful. The setting is terrific and it is a great place to relax. The Doolhof reds are well worth a taste
