We stayed in the table mountain loft. Decor is african and it looks lovely. Lovely double shower. Clean and spacious. Beautiful views of vineyards and the most amazing gardens. Loved the wine tasting and of course the wines. Had supper at Floreal with friends. It was divine.

We stayed for two nights at Marianne. We drank some lovely wines (especially the 2009 Merlot) and stayed in the loft. A spacious room that gives you a real African feeling with a great bathroom. Breakfast was fine. Marianne is located between the wine fields of Stellenbosch wich brings you breathtaking views!

The room was big and nice. Huge bathroom, with two sinks and a bathtub and a shower for two. The estate is huge, and you can take a walk, take a swim or just have a glass of wine on the balcony.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom loft apartment which was lovely and spacious. The living area has 2 chairs a rather uncomfortable sofa. Beware of the wardrobes - these are beautifully handmade, however there were some bits of wire attached to the doors which snagged our clothes and also cut my hand. The young lady at reception kindly provided me... More

I was pleasantly surprised Upon arrival and instantly fell in love with this hotel. The room was stylish and spacious, I'm a sucker for a free standing bath. The grounds were stunning and I felt like I was staying in a Tuscan retreat whilst wandering through the vineyards and lime groves. The staff were extremely passionate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about... More

The vineyard itself is breathtaking in terms of setting and level of remoteness, everywhere felt still and relaxing enough that you hardly noticed any additional guests / visitors. Our apartment was superbly finished, with a good balance of space and coziness, the overall feel is luxurious without being at all pretentious. The tasting experience was very nice and the setting...

Our room was one of the lofts and was spacious and well equipped. The complimentary wine tasting is a nice touch; although far from the best wines we tasted during our stay in Stellenbosch. We encountered a couple of hiccups which gives rise to the 3 stars. We made a reservation via the guesthouse for Floreal Restaurant for after a... More
