Kleinbosch Lodge is lovely place to stay. Hans goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. Rooms are spacious with large clean bathrooms. Our room had a kitchenette and large porch to relax on.The gardens are beautiful. Big pool and gardens. Situated just outside Stellenbosch, close to wine farms and markets.

This has to be one of the most beautiful places to stay in Stellenbosch.
Hans, the owner/manager, has created a haven in the midst of one of the loveliest areas around Cape Town. The lodge is set in a large garden, backed by beautiful mountains; the swimming pool and hammock are a delight after a day touring the vineyards.

The lodge is very well-situated, off R44 which is a main route to all the area vineyards. The rooms (I think I should call them luxury suites) are beautiful, comfortable and with all amenities the traveller could want. I loved my spa bath and the kitchen facilities – nice to have a cup of tea after all that wine!

The owner is charm itself – he has a wonderful knack of treating each guest as an individual he would like to get to know and befriend. Look for the morning bulletin board with his guest comments! And his suggestions for wineries and other attractions of the area are great – he couldn’t be more helpful.

Breakfast, which is included in the rate, is a delight – nothing is missing from the buffet table; Hans even served cherries!

And to top it all off, the rate is extremely fair for the level of luxury provided.
You will most certainly not regret staying with Hans at Kleinbosch Lodge.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Kleinbosch for one night during November, 2012 and it was wonderful. The rooms are very big, nicely decorated and clean. The bathrooms are huge and ours had a spa bath. The lodge is in a great location, close to many world renowned restaurants and wine estates. The breakfast was scrumptious- made better by all the fresh fruit on offer! The owner, Hans, was extremely helpful and really made our stay unforgettable. My boyfriend proposed during our stay at the lodge and Hans went out of his way to make our engagement special. We will definitely stay at Kleinbosch again on our next visit to Stellenbosch!

Another 10 days at Kleinbosch! We truly enjoyed the unique and very warm hospitality offered by Hans, the breakfasts ofered are indulgent with something special and new offered almost every day. The rooms are comfortable and well situated next to the pool which was such a bonus during the rather hot weather we experienced. The fan club from Pretoria spent many a night enjoying an early morning coffee and quiet read under the gazebo and a restful chat on the patio observing the very clear night skies where the stars still twinkle brightly.

Very good value for money and centrally located as a gateway into the winelands and close enough to the hustle and bustle of Cape Town a mere 40 km away!

Room Tip: Room 1 is the romantic room, rooms 2, 3 and 4 are spacious. There are garden cottages as well which...

We spent 10 days at Kleinbosch Lodge during December 2011. Hans is a great host treating his guests as honourary family members. Breakfasts are tasty and cater for all dietary requirements. Rooms are spacious and comfortable situated next to the swimming pool with shaded patio seating in front of each room,for those who like to indulge in a bit of reading. Being attuned to your guests requirements is definetly a big plus and an added bonus for guests.

My husband and I stayed at Kleinbosch for two nights while we did some wine tasting around Stellenbosch. Hans was a fabulous host, once we arrived he helped us pick out which vineyards to visit, all within 5 km from Kleinbosch. The location is a great base if you are planning to visit the different wine farms.

The rooms are beautiful! They are fully equipped with your own mini kitchen, microwave, water heater, coffee and teas. The bathrooms are almost as big as the room and have towel heaters which were perfect for winter!

We didn't get to jump in the pool since it was too cold out in July, but I can imagine it would be relaxing with the mountains in the background.

Breakfast in the morning had plenty of options and left both my husband and I full for most of the day. Internet was fast - but hopefully you are out wine tasting and not surfing the web :)

I would definitely go back to Kleinbosch and recommend it to anyone, especially if you want a romantic getaway in Stellenbosch!!

We spend a night on the room n°1 for a week end gateway, they was rainy all day long but the underflood heating and the cosy room warm us up really quickly.
The place is running with a lot of love and care by Hans and we will come back during the summer to enjoy the swimming pool area :)
