We stayed for one night at Grand Dedale and thoroughly enjoyed every element of our stay. The hosts and staff are extremely accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely return to Grand Dedale next time in the Cape.

I took my wife for a one night treat for her birthday. It was too short. If you enjoy being pampered and wrapped in utmost luxury, this the place for you. I'd score it a 5 out of 5 for setting, decor, service, food, relaxing atmosphere; well just about everything. And for a good workout its got some of the... More

Dear Slabberts, thank you for taking the time to review your stay and choose Grand Dédale for your wife special day.

My wife and I stayed at Grand Dedale for three nights recently. It is in a wonderful setting, at the end of a short dirt road, nestled amongst beautiful mountains. Our room was luxurious, with a huge bathroom and a lovely glass conservatory. The staff get the balance spot on by being attentive yet unobtrusive. Thanks to the very friendly... More

We do a trip once a year to Grand Dedale and there's nothing about the place we don't like. They have the friendliest staff, beautiful venue, amazing food and you always leave feeling relaxed after a lovely trip, whether you stay for one or two nights.

This was our second stay at Grand Dedale and every bit as good as the first. Quiet, well-maintained and beautifully appointed. Even with a full guest house, everyone enjoys privacy and their own space. The afternoon tea was, again, disappointing - my suggestion would be to change the pastry chef or cater this out. The dinner was excellent; breakfast was... More
