“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights with our one year old. The rooms are beautifully furnished and they really think about all the added extras - different types of pillows, homemade biscuits and smoothies every day. They even provided a welcome baby pack with bubble bath, toys etc. the pool was lovey and the garden area with views over the surrounding mountains. We ate in both restaurants and the food was outstanding and probably the best breakfasts we have ever had. Staff were really friendly especially with our son and they also provide a baby listening service.

What a wonderful place to spend a couple of nights in South Africa's beautiful winelands. The accommodation at Le Quartier is superb and surrounds a lovely pool area with attractive gardens. The rooms/suites are spacious, well appointed and really classy.
An evening in their world class restaurant The Tasting Room is a gastronomic experience to savour and even the more modest Common Room provides delicious meals in a lovely setting. The breakfast table was so colourful, and pretty as a picture - irresistible! We really can't find a single thing about this excellent little hotel to criticise and highly recommend a visit.
It's worth asking the staff about a visit to the nearby Victor Verster Prison. This is where Nelson Mandela spent his last two years in detention in a house within the prison grounds and from where he finally walked as a free man through Freedom Gate. A tour of the house is truly moving and a much more intimate experience than a trip to Robben Island.

two nights spent as part of our memorable trip to South Africa and two days and nights of great memories.
We stayed at Le Quartier last week and enjoyed 2 great nights with a superb room , spacious, quirky and luxurious and enjoyed the friendliness that abounded throughtout the resort.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from recommending and finding restuarants, arrranging a wonderful guide for a day in the wine country. the list could go on

We enjoyed the food in the Common Room and in their sister place Bread and Wine and both were wonderful.
Breakfasts were great too and the location just off the main road, but seemingly a million miles from it was just perfect.
A great place to relax and chill out and a place to revisit as soon as we can

Great accommodation with privacy in centre of town but the highlight must be the African Tasting Menu which was the second best meal we have ever enjoyed. And service by well trained but also very personable staff with whom we could enjoy a few laughs during the evening.

I have travelled all over the world, and never have I experienced such phenomenal service. From the moment we entered we were made to feel special. Like a true five star establishment, no small detail was overlooked. It was a romantic occasion and the chef even prepared a small anniversary cake for us, plus there were bubbles waiting in our room after the gastronomic feast we enjoyed in the Tasting Room. There is truly no other place like it in the world, from the elegant yet whimsical décor, to the warmth of the service and the cutting-edge modernist cuisine.

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. It was a treat, with an upper room overlooking the pool area. Very comfortable and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful.
We booked The Tasting Room, knowing it was so highly rated.( 3 months waiting list apparently). It was a great experience though an expensive one!
It is well placed for walks around the town, visit the bars and restaurants, shops and sights.
We loved it.

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Le Quartier, and all they have to offer, on a number of occasions. The Hotel is a joy with their playful and artistic approach to decor - colorful and happy....makes the place feel alive and I found it refreshing! The Tasting Room speaks for itself - a truly special and memorable experience. The surprise tasting menu w/ wine pairings is a must!! The Common Room never disappoints for casual, tasty bites in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The staff are helpful and I love coming back and seeing the same smiling faces! Can't wait for my next visit....

It is a treat to have our guests return again and again and to be able to keep on spoiling them. We hope it won't be too long before you come back.
