We stayed for four nights (perfect length of stay to enjoy the wine region and to relax in your room/by the pool) in December in a deluxe lodge. The lodges are big and offer all the amenities you can wish for. The deluxe lodge does not offer views over the wine fields as do the luxury lodges, but considering the big price difference and the fact that you can enjoy the views from the general pool and Delaire restaurant, we would opt for the deluxe lodge again (except for the views they are exactly the same) and spend the money on wines and dinners. The private pool is not too small and is heated so it is not too cold- whilst the general pool, although the viewe are stunning, was not heated and therefore really cold to swim in but luckily there is jacuzzi as well. The bubbly with canapes brought to your room each evening is a wonderful idea. The restaurants are very good as well and they catered really well for my dietary requirements. The warm pastry basket at breakfast, differing each day, was another highlight. The hotel offers a great service and they arranged bikes and picknicks for us at Boschendal and Vergelegen estates, which we both highly recommend. Also make sure you make a booking at the Tasting Room at le Quartier Francais, it was voted best restaurant in Africa and the Middle East in 2011 and for under Eur 200 we had a five course dinner including wine pairing for two persons. The hotel also brought us in touch with a local tour operator who booked a hot air baloon flight for us over the winelands and we were lucky enough to have the right weather conditions to enjoy this. The Delaire Graff hotel is a really luxurious place from which to explore the wine region and relax at the same time and we would have no doubt to book again.
