Reviewed 14 September 2013

I cannot say enough about Steenberg Hotel. Fifty + family members traveled here for our family reunion. The ambiance, the service, and above all the food at their on-site restaurant Caterina's were excellent. The superb adjacent golf-course didn't hurt either both for beautiful vistas and great golf. Their, on site, spa was well used by myself and many family members and with the highly advantageous Rand vs US Dollar exchange it was very affordable as were all the shopping trips. I am in awe of the multitude of activities that are available in South Africa and the stunning scenery we passed through to get to them. The children as well as the adults were constantly entertained with the many choices. From an exquisite Safari at near-by Aquila to actually petting Cheetahs we could not have chosen a better location for our reunion.

Room Tip: They were all beautiful and quiet. I never heard a peep from the room next door. Select on the size...

The staff at the Steenberg Hotel made our stay. The friendly, generous and charming nature of everyone we encountered eclipsed even the gorgeous scenery. They got it just right. We were there for a family reunion and they were wonderful in helping with everything from games and activities and meals for the kids to helping to arrange unexpected, last minute requests. We even had a few joiners in our pick-up footie when numbers were low.

The food was also incredible, don't choose this hotel if you are on a diet! Everything is too tempting and well-worth trying. Having so many family members there, we were also able to sneak a peek into most of the different rooms/apartments and again, all of them were fantastic. We especially loved the bathrooms and heated floors in the apartments - it felt like complete luxury and a few members of my family have been inspired to go home and start a few renovations of their own.

It was our first encounter of having the hotel and Catharina's booked exclusivley to one extended family and I am thrilled that your time at Steenberg was as special as we had all hoped it would be.

My family just celebrated our 5 family reunion and spent two weeks here. The winery, golf course and grounds surrounding the hotel were breath taking. There was about 50 of us and the staff were extremely efficient and accommodating to all our needs. We truly had a family reunion to remember... Thank you so much!!!

We are pleased to be able to say that we had a wonderful time and experience while staying at the hotel. We booked the hotel as we wanted something special for our 30th wedding anniversary and we can confirm that it met our expectations. On arrival we were greeted in style by being shown in to the library for a glass of bubbly while the checking in arrangements were organised. We were then shown into our room which was fantastic. This was an excellent start to our 30th wedding anniversary. All the staff in the hotel were very helpful throughout our stay and tried to everything to make our stay special. It would be unfair to mention anyone in particular as they all played their part during our stay to make it memorable and amazing. We would certainly recommend the hotel to couples who wanted to stay somewhere special. The food was fantastic and the service was everything that we could have ever wished for. Thank you to all.

We stayed in the South African winter, but it was still beautiful. The property is gorgeous, the rooms are tremendous, the food is superb, and the staff is so incredibly friendly. You really can't go wrong. There's a great variety of shops just down the road with two amazing places to eat: Thai Cafe and Il Pomodoro.

We loved Cape Town, and our stay here is a big reason why. Be sure to rent a car and drive south to Simon's Town, and onward to the Cape of Good Hope. Gorgeous drive!

I have been so fortunate to have spent a few short stays at this beautiful boutique hotel over the last year. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped but the most special thing about Steenberg is the wonderful staff. My son of 10 has stayed with me a few times and been treated like a prince. Nothing is to big or small for them and you feel they genuinely see you. The food is also fantastic and in summer sitting outside under the oaks or by the swimming pool is one of the most tranquil settings in that part of the Cape. The hotel is set on an exclusive wine and golfing estate with an outstanding course and great wines. Steenberg is also close to many of the best tourist areas. I cannot praise this hotel enough.

If you like food, wine, golf and peace this is the place to be. Golf course was very nice to play and well-maintained. At the Catharina's we had a faboulus culinary experience. Walk through the hotel's vineyard to reach the Bistro Sixteen82 for wine tasting. The buildings were dated back to 17th century and restored elegantly. We could still feel the 17th centruy spirit with comfort and modernity added. The service quality was superb. The personnel of the concierge was more than helpful in arranging our trips, golf course and restaurant reservations. I lost my iphone at a golf course, without their incredible help, i wouldn't be able to find it. Thanks for a great holiday...
