“The people make Silvermist special”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stayed in Silvermist for 5 days and loved it so much went back for a further 4. The lodges are rustic and simple but clean with everything for a relaxing holiday. The views from the Ridge Lodges are amazing. Everyone who works there is very polite and friendly and made us feel part of the family. We would love to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Fynbos cottage which has 2 bedrooms, one being upstairs. The views are amazing

When we arrived we were shown to our room. It was dated and not at all as described. Quite frankly it needed a good clean and a coat of paint, especially the verandah that had paint peeling off the corrugated sheeting roof. Just awful.Definitely the worst accommodation we have experienced in South Africa. We checked with the website and could not recognise one photograph of many displayed showing the room that was allocated to us. We raised the issue with the staff who informed us that our room was generally for meetings and storage and not used as a bedroom as it was the largest on the site. It was disgraceful behaviour to such an extent that we could not remain at the place. We had our money refunded and very embarrassed staff apologised and bid us farewell. Clearly, there are concerns for anyone when booking this accommodation.

We stayed at Silvermist in the Cedar lodge while visiting our daughter who is attending UCT. Our friends traveling with us stayed in the one bedroom units. It was wonderful to wake up to bird songs, the breeze through the eucalyptus forest nearby, and look out over the vineyards and mountains while being so close to the city. We loved having the additional space of the lodge rather than a standard hotel room at the same price. The staff was incredibly helpful especially when one of our group experienced car difficulties. The continental breakfasts were great but most of the time, we could not resist adding fresh eggs or omelets to our meal (at such a small price). As our daughter will be at UCT for awhile, we look forward to returning to Silvermist.

Room Tip: We loved the Cedar Lodge

The estate is set on the mountain-side, just next to Constantia Neck. Beautiful views and surroundings - forest and vineyards, clean mountain air, birdlife and oranically managed vineyards on the estate wherre they produce their own wines. Ducks in the vineyards for pest-control.

There is a variety of accommodation from 3-bedroomed lodges to single (large) rooms in the historic part of the property.
The configurations are flexible enough to be suitable for large or small groups or even couples. They have conferencing and fucntion facilities; it is also a popular wedding venue.

I organised a team-building workshop there for 15 participants and we all thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights and days. One of our group had recently had a foot op and was not very mobile, but that was not a problem; she had a fabulous room close to the dining and reception area and to get to the conference centre lower down, she went as a passenger in a car.

Catering was good with outstanding attention to the special dietary requirements of a number of people, all the staff were extremely helpful and the service was great. As we had a chilly few days, fires were laid in each room each night and electric blankets switched on.

One of the reasons we chose Silvermist was because of its "away from it all feel". Despite this, it is close to all the major areas in Cape Towm - a few minutes form Kirstenbosch, 15 minutes from Hout Bay or Constantia shopping areas and 20 minutes from the city, so a perfect base for holiday makers.
Our only regrets were having to leave and not being able to stay for much longer.

We rented a few cottages for a large family reunion and the cottages were all a very steep walk from each other. The cottages were simple and clean. The ones at the top by the swimming pool were large and luxurious though. Good location close to Hout Bay and Constantia is very beautiful. Having said that, we probably won't choose this one again as there are other great places to stay in the same area.

We stayed in 3 lodges from 31 March to 6 April and were very pleasantly surpirsed when we arrived. The pictures on the website do not do the lodges justice. They are all individual and set in a beautiful spot overlooking the back of the 12 Apostles and the wine estates on the mountain. The views are truly stunning.

The staff were all very friendly and the lodges are very comfortble with big open fires for the chilly evenings!
A big Thank you to the management for the safe delivery of my son's wallet. My 17 year old son left his wallet in a drawer in the lodge and the manager very kindly searched to find it and arranged for an overnight courier to send the wallet to our accomodation in Durban.

Room Tip: Cedar Lodge and Squirrel Lodge both had stunning views. Eagles Nest was a little obscurred by bushes...

This lodge would suit a family or perhaps a couple wanting a more private experience than a hotel. The setting is quite beautiful, high in the cool mountains of Constantia. We had a small cottage which was nicely furnished and very comfortable. The little balcony overlooked the valley below. A continental breakfast was included in the price and a cooked breakfast available for about R50 or so. Some cottages are completely self catering. The staff are very helpful. The lodge is convenient for the wine farms and beaches nearby and not far from Cape Town.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a larger cottage if that is what you need.
