We were in the area for a wedding. Based on internet research, it looked like the best place to stay, and that turned out to be an excellent decision. Rooms were great - large, comfortable, well-designed. Breakfast was delicious. And our host did whatever he could to enhance our stay, including breakfast in a bag for early morning flight and...

The owners opened up the Villa to accommodate our wedding party and could not have been any more hospitable- with the entire staff very friendly. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Also special heating benefits for the cool winter. I highly recommend this inn as the perfect place to tour the wine country.

We had the most relaxing and blissful holiday here, and nothing was too much trouble for the new owners, Beulah and Jan. These two really know how to spoil their guests! We dined like king & queen, even took advantage of the wonderful cooking and invited a big party of friends for 5*dinner. Villa Exner provides a beautiful environment for... More

I was on a last minute business trip. I was very surprised to find such a lovely hotel in such a small town. This is definitely a hidden gem in the Cape Town area. I will come back on my next trip to Cape Town (business or leisure)!

Villa Exner was a lovely place to stay for a bit of a spoil before we attempted the Wines to Whales Mountain Bike challenge. The evening meal was superb and the hosts very gracious and accommodating. Well worth it - we will definitely frequent it again when we can!

We've been staying at Villa Exner for the last 3 years and would not do the W2W cycling event if we can't stay there. The rooms are great, the service faultless and the dinner and breakfast just what cyclists need.

We, a family of three, had the entire left hand annex with two bedrooms and a living room in between and therfore had... More
