A warming welcome from our host Dave Bakker started our stay at WedgeView hospitable. The accommodation was breathtaking, from our luxurious rooms to the refreshing pool to the beautifully maintained garden, I fully enjoyed it all!

After two weeks of hard work in the townships of Cape Town, we could relax for 2 days in the Wedeview, and these days were amazing. The rooms were very good and comfortable. The food was really good, and the service was excellent. The staff was very helpfull, and arranged that we could play pool at night and lounge in the garden. The view outside is amazing, especially when the weather is good. We really enjoyed our stay, and I regret we only stayed there for two days, it should have been longer.

We stayed at the WedgeView Country House & Spa for one night in early May. While our room (garden de luxe room) was particularly romantic and stylish (apparent beams, high ceilings, thatched roof, etc.), the WedgeView itself felt a little lifeless and cold (the wet and cold weather did not help!)

Back to the accommodation itself, the bathroom was very well fitted with high-spec bath and shower. On a negative point, we found about seven worms throughout the room and bathroom in the morning...

We were well-received on arrival, with friendly staff offering welcome glass of wine. The WedgeView staff were also helpful by making late notice arrangement for dinner. Breakfast was very enjoyable (in terms of choice and quality) but unfortunately located in a rather cold and draughty room.

Overall, we did not get the feeling we normally experience in a five-star accommodation. However, there is no doubt that our experience would have been far more positive in a warmer and more busy period.

We arrived in Stellenbosch at 8am after a night flight from London and were completely exhausted. The Wedgeview staff quickly served us a beautiful breakfast and found a spare room for us to shower and nap until our larger room was ready. The grounds are charming and gorgeously manicured and so are the rooms. I wanted to stay by the pool, watch the ducklings and munch on croissants forever! – my husband had to drag me away to the wineries! (FYI: go to Tokara and Delaire!) The Wedgeview staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable and luxurious. Can’t wait to return!

I always use Trip advisor as a reference before booking a hotel and it is very helpful. Mostly the reviews are aligned with my actual experience of the hotel. Because I had such a good experience in Wedgeview, I would like to share this. I have stayed here last December and I must say; it was more than perfect. Wedgeview is a special place. You are really welcome here and it is the finesse that makes you feel at home. The staff is very helpful and is able to make you feel comfortable at all times. Either for a lunch in the Garden, a good glass of wine at the fire place or in any other support if you do like to explore the area. Furthermore, the rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast is all fresh and of a high quality. It is not common to find a place where people serve you from the hart. And in addition, a beautiful view. Enjoy!

We booked Wedgeview for a 3-night stay in Stellenbosch based on the reviews here on Tripadvisor. We arrived from Cape Town to Stellenbosch and were immediately amazed at the beauty of the area.

Wedgeview is itself a beautiful estate, set in wine country with mountain views everywhere you look. Our room, no 9, was so lovely. The thatched roof ceilings were beautiful and the bathroom amazing - loved the pebble floors in the shower!

We also received a very warm welcome and consistently friendly and attentive service from Dave and his team.

What was particularly nice was how Dave paid so much attention to my pregnancy, changing a set dinner menu to suit the needs of a pregnant woman and generally providing genuine care and service, without me even asking for it.

On our last day we had spa treatments, which were really nice. The spa manager was very friendly and helpful, again changing the treatment to accommodate my pregnancy.

The same evening we had dinner with Dave and some other guests at the hotel, on a long table on the terrace. It was such a nice evening - the food was lovely, as was the company.

In general we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful country house, and were impressed by Dave's genuinely friendly welcome, as well as the service provided by his staff. We'd love to come back to Wedgeview the next time we visit South Africa. It's the perfect base to explore the surrounding wine lands and everything SA has to offer.

Nothing was too much trouble, the room was superb as a family it was great to be a little way out of town but so easy to get there. The most amazing view and facilities there was no need to go anywhere else, the food was superb and it was great value for money. It is not a case of if but when we will go back the sooner the better. Thank you so much the Green Family all 4 of us.
