My family and I stayed at the Wedgeview for the first 3 nights of our first ever trip to South Africa a week or so before Christmas (2013).We had made our booking based on its proximity to Stellenbosch and all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor.
We weren't disappointed. It was a beautiful place to stay - its well-manicured grounds stunningly covered in vibrant flowers with exquisite views, a small lake and a lovely outdoor pool.
We stayed in one of the new, interconnecting, family units - in fact we were the first to use it. It was well-arranged, very spacious and perfect for our needs, with a small kitchen, 2 lovely rooms and 2 huge bathrooms. The only slight downside was that there were some building works going on just outside our room at the time, but these didn't cause any particular disturbance and I would imagine may well have finished by now.
The breakfasts were very good and the evening meal we had one night was of an exceptionally high standard. The Chef is obviously a very talented young lady and also extremely personable and helpful, paying particular attention to ensuring that nut and seed-free options were offered to our two children who have allergies to these foods.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Wedgeview to families or couples and hope to have the opportunity to stay there again ourselves on a future visit to this beautiful area.
