A very pleasant stay with clean well-appointed rooms and general facilities. Of particular note was the friendly and helpful staff, especially the young man who looked after our needs from the time of arrival to our departure. Nothing was too much trouble for him in his efforts to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. I will certainly recommend you to friends.

Our overnight stay at De Doornkraal Vinotel was without doubt one of the most pleasant experiences of any overnight stay anywhere in the country. The service was excellent with the staff more than eager to please and walk the extra mile. The food was top drawer - Eleane Peyper is an outstanding chef, and the wine tasting was delightful. The wine too was excellent and my car was quite a bit heavier when we left. Having travelled extensively both locally and overseas , and planning to travel a lot more in future, De Doornkraal Vinotel has set the bar very high. The only very slight improvement which could be made is in explaining the location. The one way street setup in Riversdale doesn't help in finding this great hotel.
