“Not recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Not recommended for business clients. Key problems when booking in and confusion about which room is mine, was not a good start. No hot water, later found out that they have forgotten to switch on the geyser. Warning was extended to me to keep alll valuables on me, as guests are being watched by drug (money) searching people from nearby when leaving the room. No tv in the room. Definitely not what I've expected from a 4 star guesthouse. Alarm also went off the one night. Food was however very good.

Dear Future Guests
1. There was confusion with the keys, since we had a storm, and the designated room for our guest was flooded. 2. There was hot water, our guest did not know that the knob works the other way around. 3. She only informed us about the "cold" water upon departure and did not give us the opportunity to help. 4. We do not have burglar alarms, we do have alarms, we have security on the premises like most guest houses. Not one of our staff would EVER scare our guests telling tales like people watching you for drug money. It is sad that someone would want to damage a business making such wild accusations. 5. We do have a television and recreational room in the Main House, for the guest who would really like to watch television. 90% of our guests enjoy nature, and do not require television in their rooms.

We loved the Augusta Kleinbosch lodge - we stayed for 2 nights in December and wished we had stayed for longer as it was so beautiful and relaxing. The start was stressful as our flight was delayed by four hours meaning we were arriving late in the dark. Thank goodness the signs once we got off the N2 were good and the team waited up for us and were so helpful - the lovely wine available in our room soon relaxed us and sitting out on the terrace with a glass in countryside was very relaxing. We stayed in the Hen House - beautifully decorated room with a seating area inside and a huge bedroom with massive bed, fridge & honesty bar but no TV. Only the shower room was small. The best thing was the food & the staff - breakfasts were lovely but staying for the 3 course dinner was superb and made even better by the lovely staff. As long as you don't mind a place a bit out of town then this will really appeal. highly recommended!

Room Tip: The Hen house was self standing but near the main house. The Gedenkenhuis looked good for a family

Our second stay at Augusta Kleinbosch confirmed what we first thought in 2011. The location is beautiful, peaceful and calming. The rooms are clean, spacious and tastefully furnished. We had spent 3 weeks in the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, and to escape to Augusta Kleinbosch, especially on New Years Eve (or Old Years Day !) was just what the (Cape) Doctor ordered. As previously all the staff ensured that we were well looked after and the attention to detail is awesome. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and our two boys aged 3 and 7 have just got back from a weekend here. What a fantastic place. The staff were very friendly, the accommodation clean and the food served of a very high standard. My boys had a wonderful time outdoors experiencing guavas for the first time. We all enjoyed the service we received and the guest farm lived up to their motto of may you enter as guests and leave as our friends! Thank you for a lovely stay!

We found this gem in Paarl on the internet which is always risky. So we were quite anxious to see it ! What we found is a genuinely family-friendly but stylish and well equipped accommodation ! When we arrived our three year old was asleep in the car, and the manageress immediately got him a blanket and showed us his bed before worrying about anything else ! The rooms are beautifully restored old buildings with very comfortable beds and a very nice and big bathroom. The farm is a working farm, but at a small scale, and there is a vineyard and a dam to wander around and enjoy the magnificent views of the Paarl mountains. But the best discovery was the restaurant on the property. Not only was it so close to our room that we could just put our child to bed and enjoy a quiet dinner in the garden, but the chef and the staff were absolutely amazing. The food is sophisticated and the service is super friendly. There is a pool and a large lawn which is perfect for kids. Finally, the dogs mentioned in one of the earlier reviews are not a nuisance at all and a very friendly addition to the whole atmosphere. When you drive there don't believe Google Maps or Garmin, they have the wrong coordinates. Use the directions the farm sends you when you book.

Room Tip: We were in the family suite which is very spacious and has a separate twin bed room for kids.

The best place to be in the Paarl region. You really feel as a personnel guest. Very, very large rooms, the numbers 1 and 3 with a big fireplace, including fire wood; pool with shady places under mango trees, excellent and economically priced kitchen; a small creek flowing through the garden and big old oak and other trees in the park surrounding the farm house. Very quiet and relaxing in the night. Attention when using an navi: latidude / longitude in the map is not correct !
