We stopped off at Morgenhof for a light lunch and a cool drink on a very hot day. The chicken salad and deep fried feta salad starters were both delicious and good value. The staff were very friendly and service was excellent.

This is a fairly small wine farm, we hade breakfast at the coffee shop and our daughter played in the blow up castle which was nice. A small but lovely garden with a great view of the mountains. The tasting was nice, sitting on outdoor tables. The wines where very good, especially their port wine. All very cheap. Nice plays... More

The wine tasting was enjoyable and the setting is lovely. The underground cellar is impressive - one of only 4 in the world. Separate glasses for water and some crackers would have improved the experience. We did not stay for a meal but the restaurant and tables in the gardens did look inviting.

We booked to stay in the manor house over the weekend and we were very disappointed with the condition of the room. The bedding all seemed very old and worn. The bathroom has no shower and the spa bath did not work at all. Furthermore, there was no soap provided. On the other hand, the breakfast was substantial and tasty.... More

I have been to this venue twice. Once on my wedding anniversary for lunch and again with friends for a picnic and wine tasting. Loved the peacocks. They are beautiful, and can they show off! Loved the Fantail Pinotage Rose. Garden to the wine cellar well looked after and trees were beautifully trimmed. Experienced excellent service!

The picnic baskets are full of goodies and a chilled Sauvignon Blanc; serves two easily. We had young children and teenagers in our group. The children's baskets are ample too. The picnics are served at tables with cutlery and glasses. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds, the peacocks and the clean toilets. The staff are friendly but not intrusive. The drive... More

Stopped here for Saturday lunch. Excellent choice. The choice of food whilst not large is more than adequate. The platter we chose was well presented and more than adequate for 2 persons. Good value for money and service with a smile.

Beautiful. The grounds and the buildings are very picturesque. There are a number of buildings on the property with the tasting room in the building at the rear of the gardens. While you are looking around, keep an eye out for one of the resident peacocks roaming around.

This is an old established estate with large facilities Which could use attention. However the tasting room was fine and some of the wines delicious. It was quite busy so service was slow. Wouldn't be one of our top recommendations
