We enjoyed our stay. Excellent, friendly, personal service that made us feel welcome. Everything you expect from a 5 star hotel. Loved the gardens. We would have liked to have some options regarding dinner menu. Food was excellent, though. :)

My wife and I were visiting Grabouw for a wedding. We came from the UK for a very short trip. We booked Villa Exner online and had no idea how nice our 3 day stay would be. It surpassed our expectations. We stayed in a garden chalet with a beautiful bedroom, exquisitely furnished, soft large bed with the best cotton, lovely towels and soaps, and the ensuite was as good as you will find in any 6 star hotel.

Bernt and his wife Sabine looked after us. Presentation and quality of the breakfasts were 1st class and delicious.

The house was also beautiful but all we really want to say is that anyone who stays here will be very pleasantly surprised.

We attended a wedding in the Elgin Valley and stayed at Villa Exner. The location is quiet central.
The staff was super friendly, the breakfast amazing and the facilities really great.
The only negative is that there is no cable TV in the rooms, but there is a DVD player with a TV screen.
They really take great care in the small detail and I would most definitely recommend this as my preferred stay-over destination in Grabouw.

Many thanks for your review, it was a pleasure to welcome you at Villa Exner.
Just as an advice, only our Double rooms don't have satellite TV; From Luxury King rooms contain satellite TV, mini bar fridge, ironing station, laptop sized safe, King bed and a lot more space as well as direct garden access. Generally, our Double rooms are designed for a shorter stay and to offer a most cost-effective accommodation by offering slightly less amenities.
We hope you will find this comment useful.

Wasn't expecting such luxury at the back of Grabouw but Villa Exner was a treat! The hosts are lovely, the service impeccable and the breakfast was great!

Spacious room and bathroom, comfortable bed and very pretty grounds. Would definitely recommend - great for an Elgin Valley wedding weekend accommodation.

Room Tip: Room 11 was just great!

It is 1am on my honeymoon and I am lying in bed at Villa Exner being treated to the snoring of our neighbours in the room next door. The house, pool and rooms are beautiful and the owners very friendly. I would just echo feedback regarding the thin walls, as you too may find yourself writing reviews to keep yourself occupied until you're tired enough to sleep through the neighbours snoring.
