Beautiful location, helpful and very nice staff. Breakfast fullfilling more than expectations. Rooms are very cozy and all have a private balcony. We will come back as soon as possible; we had a perfect stay.

Had a wonderful time in Eikendal Lodge. Everything was perfect from the picnic lunch at Eikendal restaurant, the fantastic view from our room, the complementary wine tasting, and the great dinner at 96 Winery Road Restaurant that Leonie booked for us. Very friendly and helpful staffs.

We spent 2 nights at the lodge and had a very relaxing time.We have 3 children ages 3,5,7 and they were catered for very well.The service was treat and staff extremely helpful and friendly.We stayed in adjoining rooms 8 and 9 which worked very well for us.Great attention to detail, fresh flowers in the room, chocolates on bed in evening and lollipops for the children, all a nice touch.
The rooms were very clean .The bathrooms also very clean , slightly tired but certainly more than adequate.
The breakfast was delicious, one of the best breakfasts we had while in South Africa.
We'd recommended staying here, lovely garden, children able to run around, nice big pool too.
Dinner had been booked in advance of our arrival, and also a visit to the cheetah outreach centre in Somerset West was organised, which was very enjoyable and a must if you are in the area .
The children also liked the resident Jack the dog.
We hope to stay here again in the future.
Thank you Leonie and Kristine.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Eikendal lodge. We, a family of five, stayed here for two nights at the end of December. Service, including breakfast, was impeccable. Reservations for restaurants in the neighborhood around New Year were made in advance on the initiative of Eikendal. The staff was very friendly and service minded. Recommended.

Eikendal is a lovely B&B style accommodation in an ideal situation with a view on the Helderberg, in proximity to Stellenbosch and great vineyards like Rust-en-Vrede.
Accommodation is confortable with decently sized rooms.
Pool is great.
Breakfast is delicious with lots of variety.
Service is very welcoming.
Great price to quality.

Our stay at Eikendal was simply amazing ! The team led by Leonie went the extra mile to ensure that we had an exceptional experience and they did not fail (extra thanks to Janine for the babysitting).

The location is fantastic: nestled between Stellenbosch and Somerset, it's an ideal place to start day-trips to the Winelands - there are so many wonderful things to see and Leonie is extremely helpful at pointing them out. The lodges are very comfortable and peaceful - we really had the impression of having the place to ourselves. The breakfast in the morning was perfect and the complimentary glass of wine in the evening is a very nice touch.

All in all, this is what a B&B should be like: a very warm welcome with plenty of attention but never excessive. We will definitely be back !
