“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

This is an outstanding venue to stay at - the manager Michel was extremely welcoming and professional. He is enthusiastic about the hotel and this shines through. Our room looked out across the pool and to the distant mountains, everything you could want had been provided. The ambiance of the hotel is luxury but friendly. We felt very secure. Breakfast was beautifully presented, real attention to detail about how the food looked, and how it tasted (which was fantastic).
The only thing that could be improved is to have some catering on site for the evenings - the location is out of town and although we had a car it might have been nice to have been able to eat in the hotel if the weather had not bee good. A small boutique hotel with an intimate dining room as well would be perfection.
We will be back as soon as time permits. Thank you Michel!

The Wild Mushroom is a wonderful boutique hotel just outside Stellenbosch. Michel made us very welcome, was a mine of information and gave us lots of help regarding places to visit and made restaurant bookings for us. He's obviously in the right job! His enthusiastic attitude permeates through to the staff in general who are polite, efficient and friendly.

Suites are named and decorated after fungi. We had the Deliciosus suite which was beautifully decorated in shades of green with accents of orange - just like the fungi in the wild. The suite was very clean, attractive and well maintained every day. Very comfortable king-sized bed and extremely good sized bathroom with roll top bath and enormous rain shower. Lovely!

The public lounge areas are very attractively decorated and intimate with an honesty bar providing all kind of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. On the outside terrace, comfy sofas and chairs are plentiful plus lovely grounds with roses, views and a swimming pool area. Fresh flowers from the garden adorn the public areas, dining tables and suites - a nice touch.

Breakfast is provided. Fruit juice and a tempting array of fruits, cold cheeses, meats are laid on each table prior to the option of having a cooked breakfast, the choice for which was excellent, although we have the impression Michel would quite happily fulfil off-menu orders if at all possible. Dinner is not provided but that is easily found in Stellenbosch itself or booked at a vineyard restaurant (Longridge is recommended for views, food and wine, ambience and service).

For the energetic, it's possible to have a run around the Dingteby estate itself and also outside the estate on the roadside which I found quite safe and a delight with such lovely views all around.

In summary, a great little hotel in a superb location with a host who is willing to go just that little bit further to make your stay as near to perfect as possible. Would certainly visit again should we be in the Stellenbosch area. Give it a try ... you won't be disappointed.

The manager, Mr. Michel was very warm and hospitable. Booked all our dinners and gave us advise on where to visit.

It was such a pleasure staying at The Wild Mushroom and i will defintely recommend it to anyone visiting Stellenbosch.

The price was also very good and i must say, i enjoyed the breakfast a lot.

Henry and Nomfundo.

Most enjoyable two night stay I have had in a hotel for a long time. The rooms and all guest areas are really well furnished, well maintained and very comfortable. Each room is different and I would have been happy to stay in any of them. Each has it's own unique decor and all have views into the Stellenbosch mountains and winelands. Quiet and peaceful, assuring you of a comfortable peaceful sleep. Excellent breakfast and great service from everyone. Thank you Michel and staff.

Room Tip: I think mine was called the Copper Trumpet. Located upstairs with a great view out into the mountain...

We had a great stay at the Wild Mushroom recently. Our room was spacious, and had all the extra's one would expect. The under floor heating was a well appreciated comfort due to the wet weather. The hotel is well positioned to explore the winelands in the area, and close enough to spend time in Stellenbosch itself - stop in at Stellenbosch Hills Winery down the road - great wines and good value. The breakfast offered was hearty and filling. All in all a great stay, and I can recommend this boutique hotel, which feels more like a home than an hotel.
