“The Manor was just perfect in every way”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The Vredenburg Manor was just fabulous in every way. The atmosphere, the hospitality, the food, the rooms, the location were perfect. And Cristo could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We hope to be back soon.

A beautiful traditional manor house with high ceilings and altogether very spacious. In fact, the owners could well have made the ground floor into more rooms but clearly chose to leave very grand rooms for use by the guests.

Well furnished with antiques and modern comfortable sofas inside and on the covered terrace too. The bedroom was very spacious too and very comfortable, with a separate dressing area toilet and lovely bathroom with freestanding bath and a separate large walk-in shower with twin washbasins.

Lovely mature grounds and a large swimming pool that is surrounded by very comfy loungers and parasols. Watch the squirrels dart about.

Very friendly helpful owner, Christoff, and staff too made the stay most enjoyable.
Great breakfasts served either on the covered terrace or in the dining room.
Needed at least a week here to explore the winelands etc and not just 2 days.
We'll be back.

Great rooms very comfortable renovated with all you need. Great service, very supportive management in restaurant tips and reservations. Vinearea is very interesting to visit. Stellenbosch is like little Europe - summer in France.

Wonderful guest house in the countryside 8 minutes from Somerset West Mall. The house is beautiful and the rooms we'll equipped with tea making facilities, large beds and area to sit. Breakfast is ample. We stayed in the self catering cottage which was a large room with bed and settee, small kitchen and lovely bathroom. Outside BBQ in small garden where you could sit but had no views. Staff were lovely. Would return if price was right.

The manor was a great place to stay for two days. Staff, management all were terrific as was the accommodation. We stayed in the hotel main building and our room was very modern including good air conditioning. The pool was large albeit a little cool. Breakfast on the patio was a bonus and when we asked for an early breakfast on the day we left it was no trouble. All in all a very relaxing place to stay.

We recently stayed at Vredenburg Manor during a weekend visit to the Cape. The grounds of the guest house are stunning. Very beautiful and peaceful. The guest house itself is gorgeously decorated and is very inviting. Our room on the ground floor seemed lovely - huge bathroom, king-size bed, very spacious. Our only problem was that it led onto the outside patio, which whilst being very pretty, did not prepare us for being woken up very late that night by other guests sitting outside and drinking and partying which made it impossible to sleep. We also were told the breakfast would be served from 08h00, outside. On a lovely Saturday morning, the breakfast had been set up in a very stuffy inside room and by 08h15 they still weren't ready. We had various appointments in the area that weekend, so were on a bit of a tight timing schedule. We ended up going into Stellenbosch to have breakfast. I was also overcharged on our honesty bar bill (it was only taken off my credit card after we had left) and I was irritated that the charges were not checked with me first, before taking the money off my card. It was a nice enough stay, but we won't be back.
