“Many years enjoying the hospitality and idillic surroundings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We have enjoyed staying at Manoir Brendel since 2008. On our last visit in March 2013 we were upgraded to the magnificent Honeymoon Suite, although not on honeymoon.We stayed there four nights before returning to the UK.
We have always stayed in the poolside rooms but this was superb.
The staff were delightful and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home.
We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: All the poolside rooms.

We had an amazing time at Le Manoir de Brendel during a long weekend in June. Karin, the manager, was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. She went out of her way to ensure that our stay was great. The estate is tranquil and pretty, and a great place to relax. The room was lovely, as was the fresh breakfast we enjoyed each morning. The staff are friendly and the service was top notch. We highly recommend this B&B.

We found this bed & breakfast when Cape Town was totally booked for the New Year's holiday. It is less than an hours drive from airport. We were a late arrival from an overseas flight, past 2300. (We used Cape Town Transfers to get there, another excellent service.) Hostess was up waiting for us to open gate as it is locked in early evening. Room was clean, cool, quiet, and we slept like rocks. Breakfast was on the terrace or lawn. Buffet or order from small but sufficient menu. If you arrange prior to arrival, a sandwich lunch is available. Hostess booked dinner for us each night, both excellent restaurants who sent drivers to pick us up. Lovely gardens, trail around vineyard and along river, views of mountains. Staff is friendly, efficient and most helpful, Will stay here again if the opportunity arrives.

Room Tip: Room 6 was our room, large with many windows and patio.

My daughter was married at Le Manoir de Brendel on 17 November and Nevina the estate manager and her team went out of her way to accommodate us and make my daughter's day a dream! Upgraded rooms and special service went a long way to make this a memorable event. We had 7 hours of photographs which says a lot about the venue.

Room Tip: Get a pool facing room and if possible the "Reserve" room with private jacuzzi - stunning

We got married at Le Manoir De Brendel on 1st March. We stayed for 2 nights and things couldn't of been more perfect.
Nevina, the estate manager, was truly amazing and made sure everything was exactly how I pictured it. All the staff were amazing and attentive.
The venue itself is absolutely stunning. It is perfect. They even made a special request breakfast of banana bread for my husband!
I was worried that being so far away things wouldn't be as I wanted but Nevina really did plan our perfect wedding.
Thank you all so much. I can't wait to come back soon and I hope I wasn't too much of a bridezilla!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and spacious.

The website is nowhere near to the actual facility. The people were great and the service was ok but I don't think it's fair to give it a 5 star grading as such we paid too much for the place.

I recently visited Le manoir de brendel as a possible wedding venue. I absolutely loved everything about it. I went with my future mother in law and we stayed in a poolview suite. The room was beautiful and very spacious.
The service we had from Ashleen and Nevina was what did it for me. I know my wedding planning from the UK will be in safe hands with them and I can not wait to have my wedding their next year.
