    Top notch with a view
    To be honest I believe this estate will be hard to push down from first place during our stay in SA! It is so good and everything seems to be planned extremely well. Staff, as you could assume, is friendly, professional, well drilled with a smile on their face. Dont miss it.

    The Jewel of the Cape Winelands - plain and simple
    I‘ve been to the Delaire Graff Estate and it‘s several restaurants many times and every stay was very pleasant. Where to start? The location is not far away from Cape Town but far enough to make you feel that you are close to nature. The view(s) from the estate are breathtaking and the friendly staff takes care of every little detail - from the lovely gardens to the way they arrange the tables. The Delaire Graff signature wine(s) are, in my opinion, really enjoyable and the new Japanese restaurant (HŌSEKI) has some of the nicest Japanese food I‘ve yet had the pleasure to try.

    Amazing wedding anniversary in South Africa staying at arguably one of the best boutique accommodations.
    What an experience and how well we were looked after. When you plan a trip of a lifetime on your wedding anniversary you don’t want to be disappointed and we certainly were not. What an amazing setting, superb customer service so attentive and genuine. Lovely restaurants, fun wine tastings, luxurious accommodation with fantastic views. Loved the private plunge pool and decking. Thank You so much for looking after us. The special welcome treats for our anniversary and the entire experience will make this a trip one we will never forget. Food we remember most, the overnight Lamb joint, so moist and then crisp roasted outside just melted in the mouth. Washed down with your amazing Estate Rose and some gorgeous red wines. The Wine Tasting with your team was just so much fun and the wines we bought home looking forward to drinking this Xmas. We hope one day to return Than You again

    If your used to 5 star , get ready for 10 star
    Breathtaking scenery with unrivalled service. If you’re looking for a special occasion look no further than delaire graff . The scenery from the main pool or the privacy of your own lodge pool is just stunning , the attention to detail from the staff is fantastic . You are made to feel so welcome and special . Let me get started on the lodges , bedroom , bathroom , kitchen , dressing room , bathroom with shower and separate bath and separate toilet room . With a sundeck and private pool . It’s not a lodge it’s a house !! Detailed beautifully with art work , complementary soft drinks and snacks and a couple of cheeky beers . A complimentary laundry service is available aswel which is amazing . Turn down service with personalised letters telling you the following days weather and activities . The grounds gardens and vineyards are immaculately kept they truly are stunning . Now on a personal note all the staff were fantastic , but I really want to put the spotlight on Natasha . Me and my partner are expecting our first child and the way she went out of her way was incredible . A beautiful bouquet of flowers and a non alcoholic grape champagne awaited us in the room (and a normal bottle for me) as well as a pair of baby delaire graff slippers . Had the fight the tears back on this I can assure you I’m not ashamed to say it haha . She constantly checked in with us and made it ever so more special . On check out we got further gifts which was amazing . Natasha we can’t thank you enough and we will keep in contact . We are already planning our next visit to delaire . It truly is one of the most magical places on earth . Thank you for everything guys and see you soon . Mike and char

    Award Wining Winery with Stunning Views
    I visited with a group of friends recently. The scenery is breathtaking as the winery is nestled at the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain and there are grapevines are far as the eye can see. This is an award-winning winery, and they take their wine seriously. It’s also one of the higher end venues. The restaurant and winetasting areas are impeccable and elegant. It was lovely to sit outside on the patio and do a wine tasting. We bought a few cheese and charcuterie platters were a nice accompaniment to the wine. There are several different tastings that you can choose from. We all agreed that the wines were excellent but at that price point, there are numerous other vineyards in the area turning out “smashable” wines at a more affordable price. This is special occasion wine. It’s worth a visit for the ambience and the wine.

    Heaven on Earth- Stunning lodges & Views
    My second time staying at this stunning estate and it just gets more beautiful every time. The views, the lodges, the wine, the amenities ( in house Wine fridge/ kitchen/snacks/stunning bathrooms), the sunsets all of it is beautiful. As well as two great restaurants on site. We were lucky enough to have our own private sunset wine tasting which was beautiful, as well as in room breakfast by the pool, taking advantage of the stunning views. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, but also left you to hibernate in the lodge undisturbed. My only feedback and to make the experience even more special would be to give hotel guests the opportunity to be shown around the vineyards on their golf buggy/ more of a tour and detail ( we did enjoy a run/walk around leisurely) but seeing as you are surrounded by the amazing vineyard, but would be great to know/see more, about what you are drinking- and even their cellar etc could be a nice touch. Maybe also a little spot/bar for a sunset/pre dinner drink near the pool/garden side where the sun is setting, additional to the restaurant terrace etc. Thank you again Delaire, literally up there with my favourite place in the world. I cannot wait to return from the UK again soon x Thank you Jess

    A magical lunch experience .
    We visited here for lunch and can only describe it as an unbelievable experience from start to finish. Having booked via phone in early December we arrived to no record of our booking and a waiting list for lunch. You must book in advance. Having gone through it with the manger, phone records etc , he was superb and arranged a magnificent table for us . The views, the professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff ensured we had a superb lunch with recommended accompanying wines in the most magical surroundings. All wines suggested were excellent and not the most expensive, they were paired to food not price . If you visit the wine region you must come to Delaire Graff for the views, the food, the wine and the excellent customer service. Treat yourself 👏👏😂

    Incredible experience
    This truly is THE most beautiful place to stay. Our lodge was fabulous - the finer details that just make such a difference. Same day laundry (all included), complimentary snacks and drinks in the room, beautiful comfortable bed, impeccable room service and cleanliness. Highly recommend. Two beautiful restaurants. Incredible food - whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner. OUTSTANDING. And then … THE VIEWS! Wow - breathtaking views of the mountains and vineyards. The sculptures and gardens are just delightful. Staff helpful and informative.

    Delair - vineyard and wine tasting - well worth a diversion
    Had a wonderful cheese and charcuterie sharing platter with 4 tasting wines - 1 Rose, 1 Chardonnay and 2 red wines. We were really well looked after and informed by Agatha who provided us with some very detailed information about each of the wines we tried. We did not have a reservation but booked in on arrival and were accommodated after a very short wait. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. We never felt rushed at any point during our visit and the manageress checked in with was twice during lunch to add information. The scenery was spectacular and I would highly recommend this visit to anyone travelling through this part of Stellenbosch - indeed it is well worth a diversion.

    Delaire Graaf estate. Magical.
    This is the most beautiful place in Stellenbosch. It has the most majestic views of the Stellenbosch mountains. The driveway and gardens are scenic and magnificently maintained. The wines are of a great quality. Wine tasting in the shade of the trees gazing out at the wonder of the mountains is just magical. The painting “Chinese girl” by Vladimir Tretchikoff is on view. Beautiful. I get tears from the beauty of this place. It really moves me.

What a ridiculous place, we spend 4 days in the wine lands, so we tried many different wine farms. This was the most pretentious but disappointing. Location is gorgeous, wine tasting ridiculous.
In The first place were there were no mentions/explanation of the wines. We were served by a very unprofessional waiter, he kept looking away when describing the wines, like he was in a hurry. We ordered one cheese platter to share. At the end I told the waiter that one of the red wine smelled/tasted like cork, too late as he already brought the bill, without even asking if we were interested in something else. The bill included a 10% gratuity, for which there was no mention ANYWHERE on the menu. When I asked him how there was gratuity with no mention, he replied that it involved a surcharge for the food o ku, but the surcharge was calculated on the entire bill! It was very disappointing, how can you bring the bill to customers when they are still consuming? He didn’t even apologise for the wine, ridiculous, won’t go there ever again! The worst and most pretentious! Ridiculous waiter!

Great afternoon out tasting some excellent (if not a little pricey) wines. We also had the charcuterie tasting board which was great.

Lovely surroundings and estate, average wine tasting let down by below grade service.

We were a little under-awed by the service and offering at Graff. One of the more expensive tastings and a stunning location but overall a weak experience. Graff need to hire and train to a quality that complements their brand.

We enjoyed tasting wine and having some snacks on the patio. The views are beautiful. We saw some other people having breakfast which looked nice.
The guy attending us explained each wine before pouring it in our glass.
If you want to relax and spend some hours having wine and enjoying views, this is the place to be.

We were really well looked after at a wine tasting today by Rafiek - he really could not have been more helpful. We also enjoyed a charcuterie board whilst sitting out on the patio which had the most amazing views towards the mountains and beyond. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
