Recently stayed (first week in July) in Rose Cottage in Spanish Farm Guest Lodge - absolutely loved it! Location is great - magnificent views of Somerset West from it's elevated position on the hill. The cottage itself comprises a modern lounge/kitchen area with several outside patio areas to sit at, a raised hot tub on a platform, and then across... More

We had a wonderful stay at Spanish Farm Guest lodge. Everyone was friendly and helpful from management to the cleaners. It was clean and beautiful and we had everything and more. :-) My only negative would be the breakfast. For R200 per person you expect more and better quality for the cooked breakfast....

Thank you for staying at Spanish farm. I am pleased to hear that you had a wonderful time here. My sincere apologies that the cooked breakfast was not up to standard, we possibly had an intern making breakfast and not sure why it wasn't great. We do have a large variety of fresh fruits, jogurts, fresh rolls and a selection... More

I used to be one of those people who thought if I'm not at home I deserve to be in a hotel. Spanish farm turned that view upside down when it introduced me real hospitality with the ability to feel you're home. Staff was great, pool was always clean with towels on hand after an afternoon dip. The garden/views? Where... More

This place is just off the scale in terms of brilliance. Elegant, contemporary architecture with unbeatable views towards the coast and mountain range. Log burners, outdoor showers, sublime garden with Eco pool. Nothing else is needed!

What an experience to stay as a guest in my childhood house. The luxurious changes that have been made to the original house are thoughtful and add even more character. The staff are firstclass and nothing was too much for them to do - a really great experience. The breathtaking view of False Bay is as i remember it..

Spanish Farm for us was the perfect way to bring an end to our holiday. From check in to check out we admired the architecture, interior design, landscape, setting and every little detail put into this place. Thank you so much for making it magical..

We stayed in on of the Villas with a private pool and a marbellous view over Sommerset West Bay over new year. It was fantastic. The Villas very modern and extremely well equipped, the pool was refreshing and Relaxing. The Villa was probably the best place I ever stayed.

The best accommodation you can choose near Stellenbosch!! We were spoiled about the view, cleanliness abd the quality of the villa. The garden is carefully cultivated. You can reach the best wineries in less than 30 minutes (Delaire, Vergelegen, Rust en Vrede...).

We had the most amazing stay at a villa at Spanish Farm. It was beautifully designed and decorated with everything we could want. The villa had its own organic pool complete with mini frogs for company and the most amazing views from the sizeable balcony. We had a problem with the air conditioning whilst we were there, and the staff... More
