We could not have asked for a a better place to share our first time in South Africa. The staff were incredibly knowledgable & helpful, service was wonderful and location & design stunning. You have the wonderful ability to dine in the neighboring Graff estate which was offered a wonderful
Gourmet experience!

Clouds is a wonderful hidden escape, we would highly recommend it although would prefer to keep it a secret!

Room Tip: If u get the opportunity the honeymoon suite is stunning & has it's own deck & jacuzzi!

Really fantastic stay, such friendly staff, would really recommend staying here as it's absolutely stunning. Also, Donovan Rall makes one of the Pinot Noirs for Clouds, and I would highly recommending getting in touch with Donovan to try his Rall wines and the Clouds PN. Rall is one of the best winemakers of SA, and has been highly rated by wine writers like Jancis Robinson. Overall, absolutely brilliant - beautiful rooms, and extremely clean.

Room Tip: Generally quiet, but as it's wooden floor, it can be loud if people are moving around.

Spent one night in the self catering villas. The villas are modern and nicely decorated. The view and the pool are just amazing. We enjoyed it so much as well as the kindness of the staff. The breakfast was very very good. Will be back for sure. Just perfect .

Very very good hotel with a lot of charmes. People friendly and rooms are stunning. Coming from Dubai, I am kind of used to luxury but this one got me. Love it as if is so peaceful and real. View on the vineyards is just unbelievable. Will be back

Clouds Estate vineyard in the countryside of Stellenbosch has got to be one of the most beautifully situated, top class hotels on a world scale. We stayed there on our honeymoon in December 2013 and, quite apart from the elegant and comfortable rooms, lounge, bathrooms, grounds and picturesque setting, we were overwhelmed by the personal service!

On arrival, we were greeted with friendliness and warmth by staff. Our room had been specially prepared with champagne and snacks and a note congratulating us on our recent wedding. We just mentioned some of the things we were interested in doing during our week's stay and the next morning the manager came personally to our table at breakfast with an itinerary of booked activities according to our wishes.

We really didn't have to think about anything, just relax and enjoy ourselves. It was a really special stay and I would recommend Clouds Estate in a flash!

The breakfasts every morning were superb and other evening meals we had there were exquisite! Servers and chef - Lenie, Brendoline and Letichia were amazingly warm, bubbly and thoughtful throughout our stay.

Much much better to stay at a smaller, intimate establishment like Clouds Estate than some of the bigger, more impersonal wine estates - we LOVED it!

p.s. It must be said that we sampled wine and meals in Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Cape Town and I think the service in the Western Cape far surpasses what I have experienced anywhere else in the world and I have travelled extensively over the years - well done South Africa!

Room Tip: All rooms look out on the mountains and vineyards of Stellenbosch and are private and beautiful.

Situated just outside Stellenbosch we stayed at Clouds estate for a long weekend. Loved the arty decor of the whole hotel. Spacious room with beautiful views over the vineyards. Friendly service from all the staff, we enjoyed quality coffee with a gourmet breakfast every morning. A fire place in the lounge added to the atomsphere. Easy access to the adjacent and very expensive restaurant at Delaire Graf. Absolutely nothing to complain about, we loved every minute of our stay.

Room Tip: Not sure about the rest but luxury room is brilliant.
