“Fantastic Place!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stayed here in December 2013 couple. From the moment we arrived, the managers and staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable and the food was amazing. The wine estate is beautiful and very central. The only problem I had was that we were only staying one night. I'll definitely stay there again but hopefully for longer!

A truly outstanding place. We stayed 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms are large and clean with excellent fittings. I wish my ensuite at home was like the bathroom here. Good free internet as well.
Breakfast too was excellent, and is refreshing to see the owners, Philip and Gail doing all the cooking as so often in South Africa it seems that this is left to the staff in service to do, this also leads to a good rapport between owners and guests.
We so like LovanE that we decided to do the wine tasting when we returned from visiting Stellenbosch and Franshoeck before heading off to Cape Town. This was nice relaxed and informal as well. As I sit writing this in a chain hotel in the city we would rather still be out in there.

Room Tip: Rooms at front do have slight road noise so you may want to request a room overlooking vines at back...

Thank you for staying with us and the great review. We do like to keep a hands-on approach, but most of the times the staff makes the breakfast, it is only when they take time off that we help. Their skills of making breakfast is even better than our own! Enjoy the rest of your holiday. Regards Gail

I booked the champagne luxury suit for my wedding - both for getting ready and for my honeymoon night. The room was big enough for me, my 3 bridesmaids, my mother, my cousin and her mother to get ready in and to accommodate the photographer, videographer, make-up artist and hairstylist all at the same time. It is a quiet place and I felt calm and relaxed throughout the whole day (with every one there). The staff is very friendly and the breakfast delicious. It makes it extra special that you can take your breakfast to your room and eat on the deck looking out on the vineyards!! The bathroom was amazing!!!! I will definitely go back there for an anniversary or something....It was a very special time for me and I could not imagine being anywhere else but at Lovane Boutique!!!

Lovane Boutique Wine Estate is an excellent location for a visit in Stellenbosch. It is located slghtly outside the city in a vineyard and is a good starting point to explore the Stellenbosch Wine region. The service has been very good and so were the rooms.

We chose Lovane as we needed a base in Stellenbosch, and why not stay at a place that can also provide you with wine tasting as well? We arrived later than expected, but a phonecall was all that was needed to arrange to be met and shown up to our room, a very tastefully decorated suite at the back of the house, looking out over the vines.

Breakfast was exceptional, with a good range of hot and cold options to choose from. The wine-tasting was downstairs in the cellars, where we tasted some of the vineyard's very limited stocks - they are not called boutique for nothing, and you will not find their wines for sale anywhere else other than here - and the experience differed from other visits to larger, more commercial vineyards in the level of individual attention given to you.

An excellent place to stay and plan your tours around the Winelands. We wished we could have stayed longer

Room Tip: Request a room facing the vineyards for a little bit of extra peace and quite, rather than facing th...
