“Incredible food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The best thing about this hotel is the restaurants on site - Myoga and The Square. We had dinner in Myoga on New Year's Eve which was an incredibly experience - 7 courses and amazing wine. However, the main hotel restaurant was delicious and we ended up eating here on our other two nights we stayed here. Everything I ate here was delicious.

The rooms were nice but quite small. However, the views of Table Mountain are stunning and while the position of the hotel means it can get quite cool because of the wind, the views are worth it.

The hotel was very busy when we arrived but our last day was much quieter and the pool area much more tranquil.

Dear Helen

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Did you also get to sit on the patio and watch the sunset?

The Vineyard has a nice set up, excellent service, good restaurants and the new rooms are quite good. The breakfast service is very good and the travel desk offers a good set of day trips and other tourist attractions. While the service is very good everywhere, the front desk is in particular exceptional.

Dear Carlos

Wow, thanks for the review, especially on the Front Desk Team. We have shared this with them. Did you get to count the freshly baked items on the Breakfast Buffet? Everything is done in house, and a minimum of 35!

Warm regards

I stayed at the Vineyard because the Westin was booked for part of my stay. I wish I never left! What a great hotel! Beautifully located as everyone has mentioned in reviews here. I thought the service was outstanding. The only place for improvement is the WiFi which needs to be thrown out and rebuilt. Having a one-device per room is not how people do business anymore. I need 3 Wifi devices during a stay, 4 if my wife is with me.

Dear Eric

We are pleased you got to experience the Vineyard. Thank you for your comments on the WiFi. You are correct the whole system needs to be dumped! It is the biggest project we are undertaking this year and have already sourced suppliers. I would welcome comments by private message from here on what you would think is reasonable in download speed and volume.

Kind regards

We spent four nights in the hotel and it was a very good experience. The location is good, the service is fantastic, food really good, service very friendly and the pool and fitness facilities were great. Only caveat, internet connection is a challenge.

Thanks so much for taking time out to make some comments here. Internet is our biggest priority this year. We are working to take our free wifi to hotel guests from an unmanaged system to a free managed system.

Warm regards

Beautiful setting. The gardens are a site to behold. Table mountain forms a beautiful backdrop. The staff are efficient and professional. They gladly assist and give great tips and advice. The restaurant is a gastronomical delight. From breakfast thru to dinner. A beautiful lounge area to unwind in. An outdoor terrace area that overlooks the gardens and a lovely setting for cocktails. Great pool and gym facility. The bedrooms are beautiful and spacious. Definitely worth the experience.

This is a beautiful hotel in Cape Town it is a little far from downtown and definitely needs a rental car but it is worth it, the place is unbelievable if I ever go back I wouldn't consider any other place to stay, and I. Many others during my visit

I spent a couple of nights here and found it to be a lovely hotel, clean spacious rooms with a great view of the side of Table Mountain from the room. Nice walkable footpath in the garden alongside a small river. Friendly and professional staff together with a location away from the noise and hustle of city centre make this a recommended spot for anyone wanting a starting point for Cape Town tours.

Dear Bernard

So pleased you got to take a walk along the Liesbeek River, so many folks visit us but never get to see the splendour of the path and garden. On your next visit we will happily give you a walking tour of the garden and the local history.

Kind regards
