Just got back from our 36th visit to S Africa - we've been visiting Eikendal since 1996 and, yet again, had a great experience.

Eikendal has such spacious accommodation, beautiful views over the vineyard and up to the Helderberg Mountain, with lovely gardens and excellent pool area. Leonie Fourie and her team give such super, personal service - breakfasts are to die for.

You must try it! We are already booked in again next year. All the friends we have taken there or recommended to visit have loved it.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 - 7 have the best views but all the others have almost as good aspects and nice different v...

We have made at least ten visits to Western Cape since 1999 and on our first by chance found Eikendal Lodge. Each visit we stay there and look forward to the combination of charm, homeliness, comfort and efficiency, not to mention the breakfasts (!), which characterise the Lodge. Have just returned from another delightful stay when we found lovely Leonie and her staff busy as usual caring for visitors, booking restaurants, helping and advising on shopping, dentists anything! The Lodge has splendid views west, and to the mountains for sunsets and sundowners on your private terrace. There is a relaxing pool area. No question - we will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are good quiet and comfortable, some larger and lighter than others. The showers are excel...

We have spend 3 nights at Eikendal during our 2-week trip in South Africa. It was our 2nd location and we knew straight away that all our other locations would have big problems in matching the overall feel of Eikendal. All the staff is really friendly and helpful, breakfast is excellent, lodge itself pretty, peaceful, clean and the garden is amazing. We had a beautiful view on the mountain range of Stellenbosch at the back. When we arrived late afternoon, they made already dinner reservations (since they don't service dinner and have a kitchen) and this was a big pleasant surprise. The dinner was really good (Longridge - wine estate, very close by). For our whole stay Leonie /Elsie made good recommendations for other dinner options. We went to De Oewer restaurant (beautiful next to the river) and to 96 Winery Rd. All in all it was really perfect. Our girl Babette of 17 months loved Jack the 'housedog' and they were all really flexible in arranging a sandwich or yoghurt for her in the afternoon or evening. Looking back we could have easy spend there 2 weeks! And if we would come back to the area, we would definitely come back to this lodge.

My wife and I have been at Eikendal in January 2012.
What a great experience. A lodge in the middle of winyards with picturesque mountains in the backdraft.
A the short tour through the winery itself with a taste of an ultimately freshly pressed grape juice stayed in our memories.
The restaurant "Winery Road 96", that was suggested by Elsje was on of the best experiences of our whole trip. And last but of course not least the very nice, friendly and helpful people at Eikendal made our stay a remerkable one. Will definitely come back again. Guenther and Ksenia from Austria / Poland

We stayed four nights in Eikendal and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were luxury for us and the service extremely warm and friendly. We got good recommendations for the dinners and also help in transportation. The breakfast was fantastic.
