“Short visit of the wineregion”

Leonie is the heart of the Lodge, helped us with the choice of a good restaurant and recommended an unforgettable hike in the Helderberg mountains! Please have the cleaning device removed out of the pool during the day!

My husband's family was in the wine business for over 100 years in the U.S. so I was looking for just the right accommodation to experience the Winelands. Being in the midst of a working vineyard was just perfect. Leoni made us feel as if we were long lost relatives and was most helpful in determining the best approach to visiting this region in the limited time we had. Were enjoyed two dinners on our private patio which were arranged with the restaurant at their wine cellar. We enjoyed their wines and kept a stash in our refrigerator. Perfect!

Room Tip: We were in Room 7 with a delightful terrace shaded by a grape arbor.

Beautiful location, helpful and very nice staff. Breakfast fullfilling more than expectations. Rooms are very cozy and all have a private balcony. We will come back as soon as possible; we had a perfect stay.

Had a wonderful time in Eikendal Lodge. Everything was perfect from the picnic lunch at Eikendal restaurant, the fantastic view from our room, the complementary wine tasting, and the great dinner at 96 Winery Road Restaurant that Leonie booked for us. Very friendly and helpful staffs.

We spent 2 nights at the lodge and had a very relaxing time.We have 3 children ages 3,5,7 and they were catered for very well.The service was treat and staff extremely helpful and friendly.We stayed in adjoining rooms 8 and 9 which worked very well for us.Great attention to detail, fresh flowers in the room, chocolates on bed in evening and lollipops for the children, all a nice touch.
The rooms were very clean .The bathrooms also very clean , slightly tired but certainly more than adequate.
The breakfast was delicious, one of the best breakfasts we had while in South Africa.
We'd recommended staying here, lovely garden, children able to run around, nice big pool too.
Dinner had been booked in advance of our arrival, and also a visit to the cheetah outreach centre in Somerset West was organised, which was very enjoyable and a must if you are in the area .
The children also liked the resident Jack the dog.
We hope to stay here again in the future.
Thank you Leonie and Kristine.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Eikendal lodge. We, a family of five, stayed here for two nights at the end of December. Service, including breakfast, was impeccable. Reservations for restaurants in the neighborhood around New Year were made in advance on the initiative of Eikendal. The staff was very friendly and service minded. Recommended.
