Wonderfully nestled farm at the foot of the Bain's Kloof Pass (literally where the dirt road ends). Farm extra beautiful thanks to its horses, river walks, silhouetted mountain sunset and fantastic Cape Dutch architecture house. Fantastic service and generous availability of whisky, sherry, wine etc

Excellent weekend away at a superb home from home boutique hotel. We were made to feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. Exceptional location at the end of the valley. Right next to Welvanpas mountain biking trails. Service was fantastic. Was spotless, food was great. A GREAT weekend away. Will definitely recommend this boutique hotel.

Grand Dedale is in a gorgeous location in the deep valleys and vineyards outside Wellington. Every room is decorated in style and with great character. It is difficult not to wax too eloquently about it!

This was our first time at the Grand Dedale. We had a great stay. Everything was perfect: the courtesy of the staff, the food, the quality of the room, the beauty of the setting. We will return with pleasure.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience at Grand Dédale. The wine estate is ideally located, tucked away at the base of Bainskloof Pass, the staff were all very welcoming and professional, our room was spacious and luxurious and both our meals were delicious. Highly recommended!
