“Simply amazing in every possible way”
Reviewed July 26, 2010

The Delaire Lodges are 10 rooms nestled at the top of the pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. We spent two nights there shortly after they opened and were treated to the most amazing hotel stay of our lives. The rooms are spacious - essentially a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment with a deck and a private pool, all overlooking the vineyards and mountains of the Cape Winelands. You are provided with a private butler who is on call to satisfy any (reasonable) desire. Canapés and wine are provided at night before dinner and the minibar, transfers and many other amenities are all included.

This is all topped off with a simply stunning level of service. The entire staff, and our butler in particular, bent over backwards at the slightest request - whether it be a snack in our room, or a late night jump into the Spa's steam room.

I can't say enough good things about this place - but of course it comes at a high price. A stay here is not an amazing value, but it is a singular experience.
