“Second visit and even better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This was our second vist here, having first stayed in 2008, We all really enjoyed our stay.we had the 'honeymoon suite' and an adjoining room as there was 3 of us, ideal for this situation.Rooms were of a good size, very comfortable and clean, all you could ask for. We dined one evening at the hotel and it was excellent, breakfast al fresco was superb and the staff at all times were excellent and exceptionally friendly. The location is ideal, far enough away from the town but handy for all ares of the winelands and as you would expect teh scenery is superb.

Really enjoyed our stay. Very nice property, views, and rooms. We had the 'honeymoon suite' and an adjoining room. Great combination, and the suite was huge. Karel was very welcoming, and a good host throughout. And the rest of the staff equally nice.

Didn't know what to expect, and were very pleasantly surprised. Wish we'd taken some photos of the place - much better in person than what's posted on the site.

Perfect hotel for couples and people looking for an intimate experience of Stellenbosch. The food and wines were excellent. Every employee seemed to enjoy working there which showed in their kindness to the guests.

Stayed here for a weekend in April. We stayed for a special occasion and were upgraded to the honeymoon suite, which was beautiful. I cannot fault the rooms that we saw or the grounds, which are stunning. It is a very short drive into Stellenbosch.

When we arrived we were greeted by Karel(?), who I understand is carrying out his internship at Wedgeview. I have no doubt he will be an asset to the hospitality industry; he was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The first night we had a BBQ at the hotel which was just fabulous, the food was perfect and a great wine selection.

However, the second night was something of a disappointment. Given our experience the first night, we wanted to eat at the hotel again. The information in the room said that food would be available via room service until 9pm. We telephoned reception from about 6pm with no response. We started to wander around the place but not a single member of staff could be found; this went on for about 2 hours! Eventually we went into the kitchen(!) where we found someone washing the dishes. He offered to telephone a pizza delivery company for us as by now it was too late to go into Stellenbosch to eat. We were so disappointed to spend our last night in this luxury house eating pizza out of a box in our room! It is unacceptable in my view for any hotel let alone a 5 star one not to have someone on hand to assist the guests around the clock, even if only by phone!

My partner had a spa morning the next day which she said was lovely. The breakfast was very good.

If both nights had been like the first, I wouldn't hesitate to give Wedgeview 5 stars.

Dear Luke R,

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback regarding your stay at WedgeView Country House & Spa.

We are very happy to hear that we could make your girlfriend’s birthday extra special by upgrading you to our Executive Honeymoon Suite. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your dinner & breakfasts at the restaurant and spa treatments the next morning.

I was most concerned to learn of your disappointing experience during the second evening of your stay. I find it highly unusual that you were not able to locate a member of staff for 2 hours. I have investigated the issue the two staff members on duty that evening and even though they could very well have been attending to guests elsewhere on the property or doing turndown service, it should not ever happen.

I am not exactly sure whom you spoke to after you declined turndown service in your room and only opted for the weather card and turndown treats. We do not usually recommend pizza delivery for our guests (only on requests) as there are many restaurants, cafés and bistros a mere 10minutes drive in Stellenbosch which is open until well after 21:00.

That said, we fell short in not being able to handle your request and offer our usual Winelands Platter (with local cheeses and charcuterie served with baguette), and for that we do sincerely apologise.

We do value your feedback and will strive to improve our levels of service even further to provide the best possible experience. Thank you for your visit and we do hope to welcome you back.

Kindest regards,

Dave & the WedgeView Team

My Husband and I recently stayed at Wedgeview Country House & Spa, we wanted a place to chill out and relax and enjoy some quality time together, and this place did all of that and more. The rooms are modern, organised and very clean. Staff were very friendly especially the French exchange student...apologies I am very bad with names. The pool is lovely and clean and the outdoor area is really nice to just chill out, relax and play some pool. BOOK A MASSAGE is my tip of the day. Kev and I booked couple massages 135min of Theravine massage:) I am no stranger to massages so trust me when I say....this was heaven:) I do wish we had stayed longer and would love to go back again on our next visit to Cape Town. Picture of the sunset included is from our garden view accommodation which have doors that open almost completely so you can sit in the sun and watch nature at its best!

I have just had the privilege of going to this beautiful place on conference and was blown away by the whole experience.
The gardens, sparkling pools, the views of the mountains and vineyards, the huge big bedrooms and bathrooms was surpassed only by the excellent service by their, mostly international staff, and their world class cuisine. My goodness but their young chef is a cullinary Goddess !!! Each meal, from breakfasts, to lunches and dinner was a treasure trove of indulgence that you would be hard pressed to find in many fine dining establishments.
Other than much weight picked up, I can HIGHLY recommend Wedgeview as a destination of choice when visiting the Stellenbosch area.
The fact that it is conveniently located in close proximity to places such as JC Le Roux, Neethlingshof and Van Ryns to name but a few is an added bonus

Room Tip: One of the top storey rooms elevates one above the gravel driveway and any related noises
