From the moment you walk in the door it feels as if you have entered another era. One where service, being courteous, polite and super efficient are the norm. The majority of staff have been there for fifteen years or more and it shows. I have stayed there on many occasions ( both prior to living in Cape Town and since staying here ) in a variety of rooms all of which have been spotless, beautifully appointed and, on the garden side, facing manicured lawns and colourful gardens. Family owned / run the emphasis is on you, the guest at all points of service. Breakfast is by far one of the best in Cape Town with both a full 'cold buffet ' and cooked breakfast for hungry guests. Lunch is served either indoors or outside on the terrace, my personal favourite - bangers and mash. Their wine cellar is overseen by a well qualified Somelier with the result that you cannot go wrong when choosing either red or white wine. In the event that you are spoilt for choice just ask . Bar staff are both knowledgeable and friendly. The Vineyard is a perfect setting for your wedding. Even in the worst of weather it still has a stunning backdrop of mountain and the aforementioned gardens. I have watched many weddings whilst eating lunch and would not hesitate to hold one of my own daughters weddings there. When visiting look for the tortoises they are huge and can be found swimming around in the shallow pools during summer or ambling around the gardens in between. If you are visiting Cape Town The Vineyard should definitely be on your ' must do / see ' list.
