We stayed three nights at Steenberg (in no. 25, the Pinot Gris) at the end of August. It was our first accommodation on our tour through the Western Cape and our baggage got lost somewhere on the way from VIE-FRA-JNB-CPT. We asked the reception, if they could call the airport and ask for an update. From that time onwards we had the impression, that the whole team at Steenberg made it their personal goals to get our baggage to the hotel - superb service!

Our kids found little welcome presents on their pillows! The spacious rooms (and the bathroom) are equipped with sufficient European plug adaptors, for Nintendos, shavers, etc. If you fill the bathtub, the water may appear brownish, but this is normal in the region and should not to be interpreted as poor water quality).

We had dinner at Catharina's on the day of our arrival. The restaurant, which is located next to the main building combines modern design with a casual atmosphere (we liked the origami on the ceiling, the cosy fireplace and the views through the ceiling to floor windows). Food was excellent, staff was very friendly and flexible in fulfilling our kid's wishes.

Breakfast is also served in Catharina's - it is a la card, not a buffet breakfast, again staff was very flexible and going the extra mile (you know, kids can be very specific in what they like).

Catharina's was closed one evening and the reception booked a casual restaurant for us, five minutes from the hotel. A driver brought us to the restaurant and picked us up again at no extra cost - not only that we felt like VIPs, it is a very secure way of dining out and you can enjoy your glass of wine with a clear conscience.

Speaking about security: Steenberg is a very well protected estate. Another plus is the location - it is a 30 minutes drive to the penguins at Bolder's and also 30 minutes to Cape Town's Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, Kirstenbosch is even closer. And finally for mom and dad, Steenberg produces excellent wines (plus Constantia and Buitenverwachting close by).

The Eqyptian goose, which you will find everywhere on the estate, can get loud in the morning, but for us it was just the pleasant sound of nature.

Summing up: 5 star service in a little paradise.

My niece and I spent six nights here and enjoyed every second. The reception staff were friendly and helpful with organising bookings, transfers or just advice and information. The room was beautiful with a view out the back to vineyards and Table Mountain to our right.
I cannot fault any aspect of our stay and the warmth and friendliness of the staff.
We made good use of the restaurant, Catherina's and the tapas bar and wine tasting at 1682.
Would go back any time, be it to sight see or just chill out.

Room Tip: Our room was well located and we could walk out into the main grounds very easily. We did not see ot...

Amazing service, amazing people. While the hotel and the surroundings are fantastic, the spa stands out not only for the expertise of the treatment specialists, but also the people themselves. It's so easy to be disappointed by a spa experience when you travel, but this is fantastic on both counts. Well done, and thanks!

Stayed here for 2 days while on business, didnt get to use all the facilities, but the accomodation, food and staff are all excellent.
View from the breakfast area on a morning was stunning,
If I was working in that area again I would plan my trip around staying at the Steenberg.

Our company's international board of directors (German, Japanese and South African) stayed at Steenberg Hotel from 19 May 2014 to 21 May 2014. We also hosted our board meeting at Steenberg Hotel. The hotel and the estate provide for spectacular views and lovely accommodation. The customer service was exemplary.

Thank you very much to Jackie, Bronwyn and the team for ensuring that everything went smoothly and for making our stay a memorable one. I received only positive feedback from all the directors.
