“Peaceful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Our second stay at the Cascade Manor after a very long flight from UK with diversion via Lagos. Very beautiful building and gardens and peaceful location. Light lunch and evening meal suited us perfectly and after 2 days we had recharged our batteries and were ready for a driving holiday via Garden Route and R62. Would gladly stay again if we return to SA.

This is my second time visiting Cascade Manor, and my experience is just as amazing as the first.

If you live in Cape Town and feel that you need a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the city... Then a weekend at Cascade Manor is highly recommended.

Breakfast was included in our package, which made the stay all more worth it. It included everything you would want from a breakfast. A wide variety of pastries, breads, cheeses and cereals were available to supplement an amazing English breakfast on the veranda overlooking a pine forest with the rumbling waterfall (which is only 200m walking distance) in the background.

Massages can also be booked during your stay. This is highly recommended. We were massaged by the same massage therapists (Ronell) on both occasions.
She was simply amazing! Very professional and made you feel relaxed the minute you walked into the room.

In my opinion, Cascade Manor is definitely up to international standards.

As the saying goes... "Local is lekker"

I definitely recommend that you try it out and experience it for yourself.

Thanks to the staff and management at Cascade Manor.

We arrived early at Cascade Country Manor from London as our flight was on time and we had no delays. Marine the receptionist ( on placement ) was professional with Isabel close at hand .. The room would be available later but use the day room and go in for breakfast was what Malka organised on the spot .

We planned to do many things when we got to Paarl . Visit wineries , got to Stellenbosch etc . We did nothing . The wonderful pool and exploring those lovely gardens with the waterfall 200 metres away was enough to keep us within the hotel .grounds.

Our stay was excellent with the owners Maika & Volker on hand to see that we were happy..
The breakfast was excellent. The candlelight evening three course set menu was perfect overlooking the pool and gardens. The wine list was comprehensive with prices not over the top.

We were in room twelve overlooking the garden and the twin beds were comfortable . The walk in shower was perfect.

Yes the municipality could assist this hotel by keeping the road in a better condition but the inconvenience if any when driving a low based car is erased when you arrive at this Gold Star Hotel.

We will be back for another visit perhaps later in the year.

Room Tip: All room overlook the gardens but the rooms overlooking the pool may have a slightly better outlook...

We had an amazing time with three other couples. Food was good, hotel was clean. Bed a bit uncomfortable on one side . Room 31. Wonderful views. Pleasant staff. Fantastic massages all round. Great indoor warm pool and amazing outdoor pool. Neat gardens. Weather not good at all. Another deal and we all back. Let us know when . Thank you

Cascade Manor is beautiful and very relaxing. Our stay was very short unfortunately. Only one night passing through on our way to Cape Town so we could recharge after our flight and see the Winelands. The Manor itself is beautiful and the staff were so friendly and gae us a perfect 1st night in South Africa. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was huge and very luxurious! The bath was enormour- more like a plunge pool! We enjoyed relaxing in the pool on our 1st afternoon, had a pleasant meal and a nice breakfast to send us on our way. The staff were extremely kind and friendly and we bought a lovely bottle of olive oil produced there.

Arrived at the Cascade Country manor on 31 October after I had to negotiate my way through the mud road with a low profile sports car. Also see review by Mada 1234 reference his visit on 23 October.

No apology was made for the condition of the road.
We were taken to a room which turn out to be a classic room whilst the voucher was for a delux room, it also seems like the lady at reception was "told" to tell us it was one of their delux rooms. This kind of misleading information put me in a negative mood from the start.

We questioned the fact that the room had an ordinary bath whilst the voucher mentioned a spa bath, the owner maintained that in her opinion it was a spa bath, I send her a definition of what a spa bath is, I had no reply.

They also mentioned a large screen TV with remote control, why mentioning a remote control is beyond me, anyway the remote control's batteries were running flat or the control was worn out, also mentioned numerous channels, at best it has 5 channels with poor reception.
Swimming pool water was cold on the day of arrival, we ask why and an explanation was given and saying that it will be up to temperature the next morning, another untruth.
Bar fridge "fully stocked" only had soft drinks and beer.
We dined at the restaurant but I won't go out of my way to eat there again, at least the waitress which had to serve 6 tables alone was good at her job.
The breakfast was reasonable but not coming close to what we had at "Head over Hills" in Knysna
Back home I had to spend R140.00 to get the undercourage of my car cleaned.

After spending time at Sante Hotel and Spa (Paarl) Wilderness Dunes (Wilderness) The views hotel,
spa and restaurant (Wildernes) Head over hills (Knysna) and Thali Thali (Langebaan) we though we were saving the best for last (The description of what was on offer reads like a dream) it was very disappointing. We really enyoyed our stays at the other venues mentioned. Individual reviews will follow.


The Cascade Country Manor is situated in a lovely area with nice gardens and waterfall closeby, pitty that it was to be spoiled by misleading promotion. I wrote to Daddy's deals but had no reply.

I have asked the cleaning staff in the morning we were checking out to have a look at the delux room they were cleaning, would have been happy if we had a delux room.

A bit difficult to rate the location as the area it very nice but the raod travel to get there is terrible.
Also to fully rate the rooms as average isn't fair as the deluge rooms are excellent but I am rating my experience

Room Tip: Delux Rooms and try to get room 15

Dear Reader,

We apologise for the state of the road; however we have paid attention to this and have had an excellent response from a construction company that has done work on our section of the road and the surface is now even. We assure you that you it is possible to drive on this road with any car. The municipality has also advised that they are addressing their section of road.

Any other complaints that were mentioned in this post should be taken up with the company that offered the deal. The terms and conditions on the voucher clearly state the rooms which are applicable to such deals.

We reassure you, as the reader, that we are committed to offering each of our guests an excellent stay at our hotel.

We booked two nights at Cascade Manor well in advance to co-incide with my wife's birthday. And this was an excellent choice! The experience from arrival to departure was fantastic. We were shown to our extremely well-appointed room in real mint condition. We could not fault anything - and the detail was immense. The view towards the mountain and waterfall from the room is really spectacular. We requested a table for dinner in the enclosed verandah next to the fireplace. It was, as expected, no problem. Dinner was top class. It was a set menu and we only opted for the starter and main course. Breakfast on the verandah the next morning was another fantastic experience. The well-kept garden, swimming pool and the spectacular mountains surrounded the building whilst we indulged in the tasty cold buffet and warm breakfast. We took a trip around the Paarl area and were a bit disappointed in some of the surrounding eating establishments. Nederburg (The Red Table) ignored us, while the waiters were rushing around. Eventually they told us that they are still expecting 2 bus groups and cannot accommodate us. The same happened at Val de Vie, and the wine and food pairing at Avondale would only commence on the 1st of November. We did not want to have lunch in town, so we opted for our own Cascade Manor, and what an excellent choice (again). We went for treatment in the Spa, and both of us had a relaxing full body massage. It was also the final of the local rugby championship derby, and a big screen was set up for the two of us. The rest of the guests were from abroad, and had no interest in rugby. After that, we enjoyed another fantastic dinner with good service and wine. The next morning, after another good breakfast, we took a leisurely stroll to the waterfall. What a wonderfull sight!
Checking out was painless, and we left with an extremely good feeling about Cascade Manor. We will be back!
