Reviewed 22 March 2014

This place is perfect. Not only do they have an immaculate view, but the interior design of the guesthouse was done with the utmost attention to detail. The rooms are spacious and unique. The food here is incredible with the most wonderful hosts, Darrol and Hendrick, and team you could ask for while away on a trip to make the experience that much more enjoyable. I would recommend that if you are going to wine country in Cape Winelands then you must stay here!

I can only endorse what other reviews have said about this very exclusive guest house. The Attention to detail in the decor, food and service is of a very high standard. The food was really outstanding and we felt very spoilt by the staff.
The only downside is a some traffic noise from the N1 highway, but given all the other positives, one can live with it.

The Cape Winelands has some excellent hotels and superb restaurants, but for sheer exclusivity, personal service and stunning decor, The Light House in Paarl, privately owned is a chic, low-key haven of comfort and calm. Convenient to all of the established and more boutique style wine estates and the restaurants around Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and in the immediate vicinity, those of Paarl and Wellington, this is a perfect destination for couples or friends and families travelling together. I loved the attention to detail and the sheer quality of it all in a garden setting with a relaxing pool area away from the public areas, plus the charming staff.

My wife and I stayed at the Light House based on the strength of the reviews here and I can't tell you how happy we were with making this choice. The Light House Boutique suites are all tastefully decorated in a "Hamptons" style of timeless luxury. When you couple this with the personal service of Darrol, Hendrick and the rest of the team you are in for a very peaceful and relaxing stay. The room was comfortable and beautifully appointed. We had a greats night sleep on the bed and the bathroom was large and luxurious with lovely molton brown toiletries.

Hendrick in particular went the extra mile in making us comfortable fetching soya milk for my wife and indulging her in her favourite flavour of Nespresso. Real personal service. Thank you.

The breakfast we sumptuous and we had an evening meal there one night and the cape malay curry was delicious prepared expertly by Darrol.

If you are looking for a place off the beaten track and with a high touch of elegance then come and stay at the light house. You will not be disappointed. We liked it so much we extended our stay by another day just to take in the tranquil surroundings.

We will back for sure.

Whatever you imagined to experience at a five star boutique hotel you will get it at the Light House - and much more... The personal touch and the ambience are just outstanding! We stayed in the Manhattan Suite and were absolutely stunned about the comfort and the stylish interior. Breakfast and dinner are of a superb quality. We highly recommend to stay at this hotel during your trip to the Winelands.

Darrol, Hendrik and their fantastic team have created a memorable experience for travellers ... a true gem tucked away in Paarl for the world to discover. I can truly say that in all the travelling I have had to do over the years, this is by far the most wonderful guesthouse I have had the privilege to experience. Meticulous attention has been given to every detail - and not just in respect of the accommodation, but also in respect of the food/drink, service, courtesy and dignity bestowed upon guests, as well as the sincere curiosity and discussion in which the team engaged with us. The interior decoration of the rooms, as well as the landscaping of the grounds, is absolutely exquisite. It is clear Darrol and Hendrik are incredibly talented and excel in what they do, and that they are sincere and passionate about wanting to make this a memorable experience for anyone and everyone who enters the house. I come away absolutely impressed, and also touched at a personal level, for having had the pleasure of this experience.

Room Tip: The Bedford Room was absolutely stunning.
