“Two perfect nigths at Eikendal”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights as a guest on the Eikendal Lodge. A great facility in the middle of the vineyards and very well furnished rooms. A highlight is the great service and extremely friendly staff. The breakfast was the best we've got in South Africa.

You may have seen my reviews of Eikendal Lodge from previous holidays - our first visit was in 1996! All I can say after this year's holiday there, is that the experience is every bit as good as ever - best breakfasts we have found in nearly 20 years visiting most parts of South Africa.

Leonie Fourie is the perfect hostess, running a very efficient and friendly number of staff at the Lodge, situated in the heart of the Eikendal vineyards. If you want peace and quiet, in beautiful surroundings (just look up and enjoy the Helderberg Mountain), excellent well-appointed accommodation at very reasonable rates, you can't go wrong than go there.

We've booked for next year already and if you want to go in their busy season, then get in now, otherwise you might be disappointed, which is perhaps, the ultimate accolade and says everything about returning guests!

Room Tip: Rooms 4-7 have lovely views up the Helderberg Mountain. Rooms 1-3 are in the main Lodge and have Gar...

We have now visited 3 times and the standard of service, cleanliness and friendliness has remained absolutely excellent. The breakfasts are great with superb fresh fruits. It's also nice that they showcase some if the winery wines in the early evening. Should also say that lunch at the winery restaurant is brilliant too. Highly recommended!

Leonie is the heart of the Lodge, helped us with the choice of a good restaurant and recommended an unforgettable hike in the Helderberg mountains! Please have the cleaning device removed out of the pool during the day!
