In january, we've spent 3 weeks at the Lanzerac Hotel, like we do every year.
The Lanzerac has stolen our hearts. It is situated in a beautiful region, in the middle of vineyards, which ensures a quiet & peaceful surrounding, even so close to the town of Stellenbosch. The historic colonial buildings are decorated with passion & respect for that history, which results in a luxurious splendor.
But what gives the hotel that extra, is the service and kindness the hotel provides for its guests. The hotel staff is so friendly, no effort is spared to accomodate every wish ! Especially the reception desk ladies and their front office manager are an example of professionality - nothing a guest asks is impossible, and everything is done with a smile !
When it comes to the restaurant, amazing !! In our 3 weeks of stay, we've dined almost every night at the Lanzerac, for the simple reason that the food was perfect : always fresh produce, variety, with attention to detail. Michelin-star quality. A flamboyant young chef who has passion for food - and that you could see in évery plate coming out of the kitchen !
In short - as close to perfection as one can get in a hotel !
