of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Stayed at Vineyard for 3 nights at beginning of Jan as part of our trip, used this as chill down before moving to City Centre. Stated in a river suite. Room was gorgeous with separate seating area & patio. If I have one moan it's that the patio area had far too much foliage and therefore no view. I understand why it was there as the room backed onto a popular river walk so it was needed for privacy, shame though. The hotel is great, service spot on and staff can't do enough for you. Location is about 25 mins drive from city centre. Walkable to Cavendish shopping centre, or complimentary shuttle service if you prefer. Lovely pool, gym (not that I used lol), garden lounge for lunch/afternoon tea or simply a drink whilst enjoying the view of he gardens, The Square restaurant (breakfast or dinner) & a posher formal restaurant. All in all would highly recommend the hotel and will hopefully stay longer on next trip to Cape Town.
"Beautiful surroundings "
A particularly beautifully located hotel surrounded by vast, well maintained gardens and gorgeous mountain views , nestled in Newlands. With a rich colonial history to the hotel, it contains many original manuscripts dating back several centuries which are available to view on display in their halls. Breakfast was a spread of items both available as a buffet and from a specified menu from which you may choose. The chefs were superb. We visited at a very busy time of the year so unfortunately if you don't get down for breakfast early, you're likely to have a long wait for an available table. The spa is beautiful and the heated indoor pools were simply a pleasure for my children. A four star rated hotel , but certainly 5 star service!!
"Great value in a lovely setting"
The hotel is in a lovely setting, although quite far from central Cape Town, over half an our from Camps Bay for example. There is a nice pool area with loungers for relaxing on a Summer's day. The rooms have been recently refurbished so it's looking good, and the breakfasts were superb. However I would just note in High Season the hotel restaurants are busy with non hotel guests so it could feel crowded and service could have been better. Breakfast was one of the best I've experienced.
"5 Stars "
There is not much more to add to this, than its one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Well done!! The service, room and food was truly amazing. The hotel itself was full of history and for the price. What price'
"It's the little things that count..."
So, we chose the Vineyard Hotel for drinks and a light bite. It being the holiday season, life is more leisurely, so waiting longer than usual, was not a problem. The problem is everyone around us is enjoying crisps, nuts and snacks, courtesy of the hotel, except us. And time passes and still no snacks. By this time, most tables are already on their second or third snack refill. I said nothing, until the bill arrived. It was not cheap, but we did not expect it to be, given what we enjoyed. At this stage, I asked the server why we were denied crisps, snacks and nuts and her response was, ‘sorry about that, is it too late to offer you coffee on the house’' Better late than never, so we accepted, but the point is, we had to ask! On another note, interrupting a lady who is enjoying her dinner to vacate her seat so it can be offered to another guest who had too few, then asking her to fetch the chair on the far end is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Even if the establishment has to organise two servers to carry a seat all the way around the entire garden, that is what one expects from a hotel of this calibre. Details, Vineyard, details!
