“Wonderful Three Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Firstly, I arrived a day early - all my fault and was met by charming Ann, who said she'd look forward to seeing us the next day!!! Arriving, for the second time, on the right day, we were shown to our two bedroom, two bathroom llodge, with a cosy lounge and pretty verandah - it was perfect, right down to the welcome note, fresh flowers and free bar, in fact it was so perfect we couldn't stop takig pictures!! It was one of the highlights of our South African holiday, a little paradise in the country with every luxury you could ever want. Dinner, cooked by the very talented, resident chef on both evenings, was absolutely divine, the wine, all you'd expect from the local vinyards and, the icing in the cake was the lovely Aubrey, who was quietly and charmingly on hand with suggested itineraries and maps of the local wineries and attractions -not forgetting our gracious waitress, her name escapes me just now but who lives in Pniel with her family - we will return to watch the hills turning pink in the evenings

Room Tip: The only genuine tip I can give you is 'just go there' you won't regret it!!!

What a beautiful hotel - I wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms are gorgeous, particularly the bathrooms. And the food in the restaurant (both breakfast and dinner) was out of this world. Highly recommended.

Our stay was magical and very luxurious - my sister and I enjoyed our stay and would love to have stayed longer. The views were wonderful and it was very peaceful. We enjoyed the breakfast menu and would love to come back one day.

Very welcoming and unpretentious small amazing boutique hotel place in the middle of the wine country Paarl/Stellenbosch/Fransshoek.
Wonderful personal that is very service minded. The natural pool is incredible both in terms of design and usage.

It takes a lot to achieve perfection in every detail, but we think it is what you have done here. To list what we first think of it's lovely staff, relaxation factor, the rooms, the restaurant's class, view, interior, exterior. Must stop there, but what more can you ask for? Well, even a very cute cat staying outdoors ^-^

Cathberty Country Inn was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Such a beautiful setting and so tranquil. We were in a lovely little cottage room which was beautifully decorated.The complimentary mini bar was an unexpected but lovely touch. The owners were very helpful and gave us some great tips on the best places to go wine tasting. The food amongst the best we had during our trip. Both accomodation and food were very reasonably priced and a lovely setting in which to eat. Overalll we couldn't have wished for more.

We had such a great stay at Angala: The views, the environment, the facilities, the FOOD and most of all the staff. The eco pool is a amazing!

Dinner was just so much more than you expect with every dish perfectly prepared, plus our waitress was incredibly nice. I would recommend every one have dinner at Angala. They are even open to the public for dinners if booked in advance. A total MUST.

Angala is the perfect spot to tour the winelands and everything else in the area - which was pleasantly quite a bit. A minimum of two days are needed.

Thanks Angala - you really are incredible!
