“30 year Aniversary”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The venue was perfect for our anniversary, the room was cold but as it is winter and one would expect this. I did tell the hotel it was our anniversary and one would expect some chocolates or flowers in the room, you know that personal touch, but nothing. The meals were very good except if you book for a 2 course meal expect to pay more than the tickets given to you, our 2 tickets showed R135 each and there is not much you can get on the menu to make this value. The bar area was excellent with a large open fire, the restaurant large also with very large open fire. The staff were very friendly after you greet them and show you are not just another tourist but a friendly guest. The rooms are very clean and the bed heaven, as for the view and area "it is stunning" would I go there again "A BIG YES"

Room Tip: The sun comes up on the left of the hotel and shines into the face. Most of the rooms our at the fro...

My wife and I stayed at the Devon Valley Hotel over the long weekend in August, Friday- Sunday, and had an unforgettable stay! The hotel has had an extensive renovation, however still managed to keep its "old world" charm and ambience. The rooms are luxurious and extremely well appointed, with the view from the floor to ceiling windows, priceless. Whilst all the staff are friendly and hospitable, special mention needs to be made of Ondela, the lady at the front desk. She has an incredible personality and genuine warmth which immediately allows you, as the guest, to relax and chill. Nothing was too much for her to assist us with. In this day and age, this type of personalized and genuine service is very hard to come by. Of course a great team needs to have a great leader, and the Devon Valley Hotel certainly has this in Andrew. We will definitely visit again and will recommend this hotel to all friends and family!

Keep up the great work and WELL DONE!

Nice hotel.The rooms are very clean and in good style.
The bathroom is surprisingly spacious with bahtub and shower. There could be more shelf space.
Staff is very friendly and attentive. Especially the reception is very capable and efficient.
The hotel is surrounded by vineyards, they even produce their own wine.
Stellbosch is approximately 1o minutes away, you need a car to get there.
We only had breakfast at the hotel which was tasty, fresh and the choice was very good as well.

I recently (July 2013) stayed in the Devon Valley hotel for the second time for a conference. As for the first time, the accommodation was superb, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent! I will definitely recommend the hotel and will surely be back.

Everything at this hotel is commendable. From the reception to the emmaculate rooms and good food. I will definetively reccomend this hotel to my friends.

This is our second stay at Devon Valley and we were not dissapointed. The staff, without exception (Managers, barman, waiters) are friendly and helpfull. The hotel is situated within easy distance from most of the Cape wineland attractions and makes an excellent base for day excursions.

I have been at Devon valley several times for conferences. Part of the reason I stayed there was because I knew of their delicious food. And boy did they bring it! Gorgeous food, friendly staff, and nice rooms.

On approaching Stellenboch from the south you will see a sign pointing to the Devon Hotel. The road takes you through vineyards to this non modern but beautiful hotel.

We went for Sunday lunch and had the most wonderful dining experience ever in a lovely environment.

The meal was a carvery and buffet type . You have a huge selection of starters, then for mains, the chef slices from joints of meat for you. Our choice was lamb and oxtail. Huge tureens hold vegetables and many other items to top up your plate. Go back for more if you can manage it.

The dessert table groaned under the selection of puddings, all delicious.

The wine selection was superb of course being in the wine growing area.

The attention from the staff was immaculate. The price was very reasonable.

Don't miss this gem if you are in or near Cape Town, it's only an hour by car
