Unfortunately the estate was disappointing. The room was not what we expected or what was highlighted in the website. We ordered a king suite and altough the room we had was nice it was not a suite just a typical hotel double room. The grounds are very nice and dinner was very good indeed but not rather pricey at R400... More

The welcome was lovely, the room was well equipped and very well maintained. all of the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food fro breakfast and dinner was first class and the opportunity to meet other guests over a sundowner on the deck was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend this location and would stay again if back... More

I did think of 4 stars, but now a month since we were there February 15 and 16, I recall these two days of our ten in the Cape with great fondness. I see other reviews use words like elegant, exquisite, royal. Well it's not that. But it is charming and welcoming. The estate is very pretty Cape Dutch, set... More

Jowine, the hotel manager made sure it was a smooth and professionel process from start to end. She is a very warm and caring person, which impacted the wedding "vibe" very much. We send our...

Excellent location for sightseeing in the area, including wineries and historical sights. Delightful spacious rooms, all individually furnished with antiques from the area. Excellent food usually served in the garden. Sundowners watching the sun set on the mountains while meeting staff and guests was always a pleasure. Excellent staff always service minded and smiling. High quality and at the same... More

We spent a weekend away for our 20th wedding anniversary at this lovely place. On arrival we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite. The room was truly wonderful, the dinner outstanding and our stay overall amazing. We encountered the most friendly and helpful staff ever. Please treat yourself in this most extraordinary place.

We had our wedding at Palmiet in April. My husband is South African and I am British and we live in the UK. I scoured the Internet looking for our perfect wedding venue before coming across Palmiet; the gazebo and grounds are what won me over! It was a daunting task planning a wedding in SA from the UK but... More
