Whenever you say Cape Town, I say Stellenbosch !!!
This time we were even more keen to come down here thanks to our friend’s wedding who couldn’t picked a better place. We couldn’t be happier with this beautiful location, the Knorhoek . It was easy to find due to the good directions posted on their site and far no more than 30minutes from CapeTown.
The wedding venue was great starting from the ceremony celebrated under the trees in their garden looking at the stunning views across to the hills. The restaurant with its location just completed the perfect day in a very traditional building which made it perfect. The meal was amazing the second course, lamb , was to die for. Two cubs wine selection was pretty right for the type of meal. I had the Twenty 12 Cabernet Sauvignon – cabernet France - merlot –pinotage and it was good : nice fragrance with an intense back taste !
Breakfast the day after by the veranda just after the reception was simply lovely, sitting by sun while having your early meal and looking at the nature surrounded by silence. Service was good.
The room in the cottage was very cozy and welcomed three of us plus a baby. The room was fairly big .The master bed was comfy while the two single beds on the sides just underneath the roof was right for the place. Very cute was the balcony overlooking the woods and the hills behind. The atmosphere was incredible and the furniture was ad hoc.
Call me strange, but I loved the satin glass in the shower giving you the right boost in the morning, being completely overwhelmed by of course water and light ! lovely.
Just a note: I believe we stayed in room 5 just after a steep staircase and it’s not the best choice for whoever is getting OLD ( me too ) or if he is carrying little babies with the pram. It gets Very complicated to climb up and down already without anything, I let you imagine how it gets while carrying babies and not being able to attach to the handrail - besides that, everything was very nice.
the cost of the room was pretty fair considering the stunning location and the service with Breakfast.
I will definitely be back and stay over to enjoy this lovely wine Estate again !
