“A New Year like no other.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our second stay at Augusta Kleinbosch confirmed what we first thought in 2011. The location is beautiful, peaceful and calming. The rooms are clean, spacious and tastefully furnished. We had spent 3 weeks in the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, and to escape to Augusta Kleinbosch, especially on New Years Eve (or Old Years Day !) was just what the (Cape) Doctor ordered. As previously all the staff ensured that we were well looked after and the attention to detail is awesome. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and our two boys aged 3 and 7 have just got back from a weekend here. What a fantastic place. The staff were very friendly, the accommodation clean and the food served of a very high standard. My boys had a wonderful time outdoors experiencing guavas for the first time. We all enjoyed the service we received and the guest farm lived up to their motto of may you enter as guests and leave as our friends! Thank you for a lovely stay!

We found this gem in Paarl on the internet which is always risky. So we were quite anxious to see it ! What we found is a genuinely family-friendly but stylish and well equipped accommodation ! When we arrived our three year old was asleep in the car, and the manageress immediately got him a blanket and showed us his bed before worrying about anything else ! The rooms are beautifully restored old buildings with very comfortable beds and a very nice and big bathroom. The farm is a working farm, but at a small scale, and there is a vineyard and a dam to wander around and enjoy the magnificent views of the Paarl mountains. But the best discovery was the restaurant on the property. Not only was it so close to our room that we could just put our child to bed and enjoy a quiet dinner in the garden, but the chef and the staff were absolutely amazing. The food is sophisticated and the service is super friendly. There is a pool and a large lawn which is perfect for kids. Finally, the dogs mentioned in one of the earlier reviews are not a nuisance at all and a very friendly addition to the whole atmosphere. When you drive there don't believe Google Maps or Garmin, they have the wrong coordinates. Use the directions the farm sends you when you book.

Room Tip: We were in the family suite which is very spacious and has a separate twin bed room for kids.

The best place to be in the Paarl region. You really feel as a personnel guest. Very, very large rooms, the numbers 1 and 3 with a big fireplace, including fire wood; pool with shady places under mango trees, excellent and economically priced kitchen; a small creek flowing through the garden and big old oak and other trees in the park surrounding the farm house. Very quiet and relaxing in the night. Attention when using an navi: latidude / longitude in the map is not correct !

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Highly recommended. Augusta is such a beautiful, historical place. Laetitia, Erica, Francois and Susan really made us feel welcome. We will be back. The breakfasts are very good with both cold and hot options well prepared and beautifully presented by chef Ronelle. Susan is the face of the restaurant and goes out of her way to make a difference. There was no avo (took a chance requesting it) but Susan recalled some were picked off the tree and stored wrapped in newspaper - sure enough one was ripe! There is a lot of history at Augusta and Francois was quite happy to take us on a short guided tour of the Gedenkschool and historical graveyard. The pool is large and the area is great for relaxing and reading. We attended a concert at a nearby farm and the restaurant insisted on making us a picnic to take along which was much appreciated.

Our team has a wonderful stay and experience during our Team Building event last weekend. Erica went out of her way to make us all feel welcome and even assigned rooms to us that suited our personalities! The food was great and they made an effort to accommodate our halaal food requirements for one of the people in the team. We mostly had exclusive right to the venue for the weekend, which was great as we used most of the farm facilities for our different activities without interfering with other Guests. There was also a power cut on the Sunday, but this did not really impact us much as our activities were all outside anyway. They also went out of their way to help us setup karaoke for the Saturday evening after dinner; which proved most entertaining for both our team and the staff.

Room Tip: The Hen House was quiet and sweet, Room 3 had a huge fireplace, room 2 was very large with a big fou...
