“Utterly charming hosts - great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Teresa and Coete were incredibly kind hosts, they looked after me when I got sunstroke, made sure my wife had a warm blanket when we went to Newlands for the rugby and even lent us their GPS!
We stayed in the Garden Suite and it was fantastic, great views, short walk to the pool, very quiet, very safe place to stay.
We took up Teresa's offer to cook us an evening meal and it was superb, more like staying with friends than at a B&B. The bed was super comfy. Faultless.

what a pleasant surprise to check in at the Vine Manor House. Lovely premises, lovely surroundings, Teresa is a great host. We wished we could have stayed longer than just one night. I loved the big pool to cool off after a trip in hot SA summer. We got a complimentary upgrade to the garden suite. Lavish. Certainly a good place to stay near Stellenbosch (10 minutes away from Stellenbosch, 3 minutes from Somerset West).

Room Tip: the garden suite is a separate annex to the house and opens to the patio and garden. breakfast can b...

"In the Vine Manor House" was a wonderful surprise when we arrived for our 2 week holiday in SA. We stayed 6 nights and found it to have everything and more than we hoped for. Gracious hosts, helpful staff, lush gardens and beautiful views of the Helderburg Mountains. Conveniently located to Capetown Airport, shopping and the winelands. It is a peaceful, restful escape and a lovely setting both inside and out. The rooms are lush and beautifully decorated by Teresa the hostess. We found the Restaurant to be convenient with great food, cheerful staff and lovely views. We were delighted with every aspect of this accommodation and can't wait to return! I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to this area.

Room Tip: The Cottage was elegant but we enjoyed both rooms where we stayed.

My family and I booked a midweek break at the In the Vine Manor House in Jan 2013. We really did not know what to expect as the booking was made online and there were not too many reviews available...Our fears were laid to rest upon entering the Manor. Our hostess was most gracious and accommodating. We were delighted with our spacious and well appointed rooms boasting impressive views. The smiles on my families faces said it all...In the Vine Manor House is clean spacious and tastefully furnished. The gardens, ponds and facilities were delightful. Our hostess, Teresa prepared generous and tasty breakfasts and was most helpful with advice in terms of things to do and places to visit. We loved our stay at the Manor and would definitely return should the opportunity present itself again. A highly recommended accommodation option in Stellenbosch! Regards, Anita M...Ps. Loved the upstairs library and wish we had more time to sample a few more books...

Monday, 4th, February. I returned to London from Cape Town this past week-end. I stayed at In the VIne Manor House between Stellenbosch and Somerset West which is situated at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain. I found the staff extremely friendly and very helpful. It was tranquil and the owner, Teresa, was always present when we required any advice on the numerous international golf courses within ten kilometers of In the Vine. We took frequent walks onto the mountain and enjoyed coming back to a beautiful swimming pool. The sea was only ten minutes from the Manor House. The rooms were exquisitely furnished and we felt at home from the time we arrived till the time we left. For others requiring any of what we experienced, this is a must visit self-catering home.

It was love at first sight when my fiance and I viewed this venue. It had everything and more to make the ideal setting for our wedding. Accommodation, green lawns, great ambeince, stunning views, Stellenbosch hills and more. We booked our stay at the Manor House for the weekend of our big day. The Friday prior, my bridesmaids and I stayed in the family room and of course my husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite the night of the wedding. All meals served were stunning and the hosts really gave us five star service, we also had exclusive use of the venue on the day. Our wedding ceremony took place on the lawns adjacent to the Manor House, overlooking the dam, it was amazing. The reception was held on the lawns at the restaurant above. The venue offers perfect surroundings for photos
