Wedge View Country House & Spa was one of the best choices we made when we went to South Africa! We went in the Winter (July) and the experience was terrific - Yves and his staff made us feel like we were at home. Beyond a simple place to stay we could feel like we were with our family around. Special dinners, selected wines to drink, a piano to play in the central room are some of the characteristics that made we feel like that.

Four years ago, we stayed in this Country house and were so impressed by thelovely location, very high standards of the rooms, facilities and excellent meals. So much so that we promised ourseleves to stay there again on our next rtip to South Africa.
Unfortunately the ownership of Wedgeview had changed. The rooms are still excellent but the quality of the service and meals was a major disappointment. The tables in the dining room were not cleared, leaving us to have to look for someone to clear away dirty plates etc; so that we could sit down. The quality of the meal was poor. Sausages were undercooked (red inside); almost raw and very fatty bacon with little meat;; scrambled eggs that looked and tasted like a paste; buffet items such as cheese was a limited choice of two with the plate left uncovered, (no flynet etc). All the work of clearing tables, taking order, serving being left in the hands of a young and very willing Dutch trainee trying to do the best he could.

We spent 5 excellent nights at Wedgeview. The staff were warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, often going above and beyond to make our stay better. The views out over the vineyards towards the mountains are gorgeous. David and his staff were incredibly helpful with bookings for restaurants, golf courses and recommendations for vineyards and other places to visit. Make sure you stay in for at least one meal at night. The atmosphere in the evening is intimate and the food was top class.

On entering the driveway to this luxurious getaway, we felt the strain of the week slip away. Wedgeview is breathtaking. Perfectly situated with wraparound scenic views, easy to access and so wonderfully serene, my daughter and I wanted to stay - and stay. In fact, we were initially on an overnight stay only, and had a full weekend calendar which included a game drive, sunset hike and more... And the plan was to simply take the 30-minute drive back to Cape Town at the end of the day. But leaving Wedgeview was not that easy. Memories of the unforgettable dinner the night before, the idea of another leisurely breakfast with everything we could possibly want on offer, and a night of bliss in a room designed to soothe the sense, on a bed made for sweet dreams... how could we leave? My daughter begged, and I surrendered... and yes, we will definitely be back!

We have stayed 2 nights at this very nice guesthouse just outside Stellenbosch right in between the vineyards. The guesthouse has a large garden with 2 swimming pools!
The rooms have a mix of African and comptemporary design and are spacious. Friendly staff and delicious breakfasts. When we come back to SA, we will certainly go back to this place! and don't forget to ask Dave for advice on which vineyards to visit!

The WedgeView Country House & Spa is a wonderful and chill guesthouse near Stellenbosch.

The rooms and views are wonderful and especially the staff makes you feel very welcome and their warmth makes you feel like home.

This place is a good start for nice trips in the Stellenbosch area with nice wineries and beautiful views.

The staff gave us during our stay a lot of tips and even made restaurant reservations for us.
