We arrived from the UK and were given our room shortly after arrival. We had booked a 'mountain view' room and everything about the room was ideal for us. Breakfast was very good and the grounds are worth the visit on their own. Close to Kirstenbosch Garden which is a 'must visit' place. A great start to the holiday.
"Perfect end to our S. Africa holiday"
My wife and I finished our SA adventure with 4 nights at the Vineyard Hotel. Having stayed mostly at small, boutiquey hotels during our safari and Garden Route trip, we were a bit unaccustomed to the larger, more impersonal feel of a larger hotel, at first. But once we acclimatised, we really loved being at the Vineyard Hotel. All the staff without exception - from the check-in to the concierge/ travel advisor to the restaurant staff and room cleaning - were delightful and friendly. The grounds looking out on to Table Mountain are stunning, and our requests to sit at breakfast (huge breakfasts!) at a table with the best view were always accommodated. The only (and it really is very minor) gripe is that the brown wooden cupboards in the bedroom felt a little outdated and in need of a make-over, though the rest of the room and the facilities in general are great. The swimming pool area is lovely (again with a view to kill for) and surprisingly relaxed in its vibe. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Russell and Mandy Barash
"Pure luxury "
Staying here was like turning back the clock in history - a real colonial hotel. It's beautifully situated in magnificent gardens shared by no less than 6 giant tortoises. Sitting out on the terrace sipping a cold glass of South African's best was luxury indeed ! The hotel is not only popular for tourists but also locals, so it is advisable to book a table at one of the restaurants. My only gripe was that I found the vegetarian choice a little tedious after the third day. We had a spacious courtyard room and enjoyed having our Nespresso machine coffee out in the garden before breakfast. Like all hotels, their taxi's are rather pricey so it is advisable to organize an alternative. Cavendish Square Shopping Centre is within walking distance and well worth a visit if you enjoy shopping !
"Pretty hotel "
Great food, grounds, facilities, rooms, and staff! Wonderful place to stay if you're visiting Cape Town. I especially loved the gardens. The doormen at the front of the hotel were lovely and always extremely helpful and full of smiles. The ladies hosting and serving at breakfast were delightful. Thanks for your hospitality.
"Staying in your Great Aunts mansion"
This is a stately hotel with all the finest details taken care of. Wonderful staff, well appointed rooms, beautiful breakfast, and well stocked bar. You feel like you are a special guest and nothing is too much trouble.
