“Memorable seven years later”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Whilst it is almost seven years since I stayed at Auberge Rozendal, it was by far my favourite place to stay in South Africa and I think of it often and would love to return. The stay was unplanned but happened as a result of being 'rescued' from a horrible over commercial, uncaring Hotel down the coast.

There was very much a family feel about it we felt very welcome indeed. All the staff were so welcoming and you felt that they enjoyed their jobs and were treated well. The rooms were just lovely and the organic dining out of this world. I can't wait to return

Room Tip: We were upgraded to two suites without even asking .. The rooms were available and they thougthr we...

Stayed here for four nights - we were very comfortable in our room and the hotel/farm grounds are beautiful. We ate in the hotel restaurant a few times and thoroughtly enjoyed the food and Joseph's tales of Nelson Mandela ! breakfast was fantastic.

The working (!) farm, the recection and sitting area, the nice restaurant and the rooms, located in a short walking distance from the main house in kind of a pittoresque alley, may be a bit older already, but everything is very clean, well kept and lovely decorated. There is everything you need in the large and cozy, relatively few rooms from some of which you have a beautiful view to Capetown's famous Table Mountain about 25 km away. Joerg and Karen, the very nice German speaking couple running the place, are very helpful in planning tours and giving suggestions. And the center of beautiful town of Stellenbosch is still in walking distance, though it might be better and easier to drive. All in all Auberge Rozendal Winefarm Guest House can't be recommended more.

This is a charming farm/hotel tucked away from the crowds with magnificent views of Table Mountain from the private patio of most of the rooms. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The evening meal (Saturday) was a surprise and delight, beautifully prepared, presented and as good to eat.
The room was well appointed but lacked a TV which some may miss and the soundproofing was a bit lacking. Apart from those small observations was a great place to stay.
Did I mention the fantastic balsamic vinegars?

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Table Mountain and a corner room

We had the most lovely evening at Rozendal in October. The service was exceptional and Joe the main waiter is such a character, he made it such fun for us. We had a small baby with us and the staff went out of thier way to be accommodating. The rooms were very nicely furnished and comfortable. Definately try the vinegars they produce, they are delicious. We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have beautiful views

We´ve spent 3 days in rozendaal and enjoyed the very friendly service, the delicious dinner´s and excellent wines ( ask for the port !! ).
If one is interested in a very worthy township-tour, ask joseph ( the " mädchen für alles ") to guide you !!! You dont have to pay for the tour but Joseph will enter a supermarket with your group and will buy usefull gifts for the people as toothbrushes, toothpaste and fruits ( NO SWEETS !! ). Our Children ( 10 / 15/17 ) where very very impressed !!

The Auberge Rozendal was quite like a home rather than a hotel for us. Everybody of the staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished, each of them having a terrace of its own. From our room we had a spectacular view of the surrounding area and even of the Table Mountain. Food was excellent - we really got spoilt. There was nothing to complain about.
