Asara Wine Estate & Hotel
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Stellenbosch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2011

We stayed at Asara during our honeymoon and extended our one night to two because the hotel was great and location was key. The entire staff was friendly, outgoing and helpful. They assisted me and arranged for a driver less than 12 hours prior to our arrival and request. We booked on hotels.com and I emailed them directly. They were helpful and wanted to accommodate our needs in any way they could. Would highly recommend!

I'm a regular visitor to Asara & although it still ranks as one of my favorite wine farms in Cape Town, the service has deteriorated with each visit.

Dissapointing as the food and location are amazing.

We sneaked away for the weekend, leaving the kids at home and what an experiece. The views, food, service and ambiance. The place is magic and real value for money. Can recommend it to any traveller.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view over teh pond

My husband and I planned just 1 day to visit wine country during a whirlwind tour of S.Africa - we chose Asara based on others recommendations and the stunning photos of the grounds... We're so happy with our choice, it was a wonderful experience! From the second we arrived, we knew we were in good hands. The service is top notch: glass of wine at check in, followed by a tour of the grounds, restaurants, lounge, tasting room and market - all were spectacular.
It ended up being a rainy day, so we decided last minute to get a driver to tour the wineries - rather than risk driving in unknown territory with wet roads- Kalin, at the front desk booked us a driver within minutes and we were on our way 30 min later. so great! **Incidentally, the wine tour company was Go Tours (http://www.gotours.co.za)...loved them also!
After visiting a number of wineries, we decided to have dinner at Raphael's, which was a quick walk from our hotel room.. the food was to die for! Service was great and the decor was very hip...we felt like Alice in wonderland with all the big & funky furniture.
To top off our fabulous stay, when we returned from dinner, the staff had covered our bed and bathroom with rose petals and ran a warm bath...it was our honeymoon and they truly made us feel so special. I would LOVE to return if I'm lucky enough to book another trip across the world. To future travelers, enjoy it!! oh, and be sure to get some of their homemade nougat from the market! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pond & pool...views are fantastic!

We wanted to stay at a wine estate instead of in town and were completely happy with our choice! The estate was beautiful and our room was great. The staff was amazingly helpful, they definitely went above and beyond with anything we needed. The wine tasting room is great and has some very tasty tapas. Book here, you won't regret it!

What a fantastic hotel. The staff were very helpful, friendly and went out of their way to meet our needs. We had a fantastic room, and what a beautiful view of the mountains, vineyards and lake!! Out of this world!! The restaurants are great with super staff and fantastic food.
Oh yes, we can highly recommend this hotel and we will be back!!
