We book a winter special at Asara. From making the reservation to checkout the experience was bliss. The room was great and the view even better. The barman was great to chat to and the staff all round were friendly and helpfull. Rafael restaurant staff were great and the food was superb. Finially would just could not get enough of their red wine, unfortunately to our own detriment.

We stayed here for the last 4 nights of our trip around Cape Town. We visited in Winter and this hotel was perfect compared with other places we stayed... lovely warm bedding, slippers and dressing gowns in the rooms and lots of hot water! The grounds are beautiful and although during our stay a lot of the vines are dormant, the views are still breathtaking to wake up to! There is also a marked out walk around the grounds which can last up to just over an hour depending on your route. We loved Sansibar, there was a log fire all day and evening and a great selection of wine, whiskey and snacks. We ate at Rapheal's for 2 nights, which was great but I think if we stayed again in peak time with lighter evenings we would probably venture out more into Stellenbosch. Breakfast was by far the best we'd had during our trip around Cape Town with lots of choice and the option of having things cooked to order. Stellenbosch town is a very short drive away and we found Asara a great base to explore Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Hermanus. We did the wine tasting on the last day which was great value for money and we also spotted the Asara wine at the airport in duty free so treated ourselves to a few bottles on the way home (good to know if you're a bit reluctant like us to put wine in your suitcase in case it's overweight/breaks!) Would love to come back!

Decided to go to wine country as Cape Town was getting hammered by a bad winter storm in June. What a great choice. The location is amazing and the grounds are so beautiful. The front desk staff was very friendly. There was some confusion as to the price of the rooms. The restaurant was amazing and you can sit by the fire and have drinks. The food was very good. It was so cozy and overall an amazing stay. You can arrange to have a message in your room. There was 3 of us, so we stayed in one of the suites. Very large room with an incredible view and huge tub and shower. Very romantic and would be great for a honeymoon. Loved it during the winter and it was perfect. Recommended!

We stayed at Asara Wine Estate two nights during our 17 days trip SA. Asara was luxurius property with a very good location, tranquil atmosfer with amazing views of winelands, lake and surrounding mountains.We received nice welcome with a glass of wine then upgraded from courtyard room to second floor room with an excellent view of wineyards, lake and mountains. The room and bathroom was spacious, big, clean and very comfortable. Wifi was good also. Everything was exceeding our expectations. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choices, hot and cold. Estate was close to Town with lots of cafes, restaurants and shops.
