“A place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had a very nice stay at Ons Genot. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and opened into the garden with a small patio area. The restaurant was a very short walk through the grounds and there was plenty of choice at breakfast, where we were able to sit outside and watch the weaver birds building their nests. The evening meals were outstanding - great steaks with wonderful sauces. And the chefs and all the staff were very friendly.

It's only a short drive into Stellenbosch and we liked being a little way out of the town centre. The Hartenberg vineyard next door was also well worth a visit. Thanks to Marleen and all the staff who made the trip a pleasant one.

My husband and I were looking for affordable yet above-average accommodation which was also fairly close to home and after reading other reviews, I finally decided on "Ons Genot". Well, we were more than satisfied with our choice: Marleen gave us special treatment when I told her that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary - an upgraded room and some good sparkling wine. We also took advantage of the 3-night online special which meant we received a complimentary bottle of wine, and dinner vouchers at the onsite restaurant (plus a cash discount!).
The room and en-suite bathroom were spacious and the king-sized bed oh-so-comfortable! And that fabulous linen! The room is equipped with everything one needs, so we didn't want for anything.
We were also offered a welcoming drink on arrival and coffee, tea and rusks are available at all times.
Thanks you so much, Marleen.

This is a very good accommodation. Everything is good organized, nice, and the breakfast tasted fine. This place is not primary for kids, but the pool was the best of our holidays and our 5-year old boy enjoyed the stay as much as we did. The owner is very friendly and gave us good advise for for the rest of our tour.

We arrived direct from the airport and were welcomed and given immediate access to our rooms. Arrival is supposed to be after 3pm and we arrived at 2pm.( I didn't read the info)Both rooms were spacious and opened into the garden. The Two Chef's restaurant where we breakfasted and ate our evening meals was fantastic. The steak was superb. The only disappointing part was the weather, which was cool and rainy so we didn't use the pool.

What a super place Marleen and Eric have. The location is good and our room was large and comfortable overlooking the pool and garden. We had breakfast in the restaurant on site whilst watching the activities of all the wildlife. Next door is an amazing wine estate with tastings and picnics in the most beautiful surroundings. Our tip is to book directly on the Ons Genot website and look for their special offers. We had a perfect stay at a perfect place!

Room Tip: Go on their website to book - all the rooms look delightful.

My husband and I spent two wonderful days at Ons Genot and the experience was fantastic. The food at the Two Chef's restaurant was delicious and the lodge was wonderful. The Lodge is situated near most of the wine farms. We both enjoyed our well deserved break.

After spending some time touring around Australia I touched down in Ons Genot. A home away from home. The location of the lodge is perfect. All the highlights are a short drive away. Outstanding restaurants in the area.
Cheers to the hosts Marleen and Eric. Fountain of knowledge on how to spend your days. Ideas on day trips, good dinners, etc.
If you want to experience the Cape at its best Ons Genot is the place to be. Thanks.
