“Kleine Zalze is by far my favourite place in Cape Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Kleine Zalze accommodation is excellent, with fantastic service and the most beautiful setting_perfect place away from home. The staff go out of their way to accommodate you. The wine tasting is always a treat. Fantastic golf course, fabulous restaurant and free wine in your room make for a great stay each and every time.

Room Tip: Kleine Zalze have special upgrade offers when you check-in or be on the lookout on their online book...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Stayed 2 nights at Cinsaut 4 in late January. The room was clean, spacious but the bathroom could have been upgraded. We liked the balcony although when we closed the doors, we could still see outside through the crack in the door. The grounds are lovely and the golf course very pretty but for us (HC 15 and 20) a but too short and easy. Otherwise nice amenities at the clubhouse but not the friendliest staff. Terroir was very good for a nice meal (check separate review) but the hotel restaurant was dreadful! The terrace is very nice overlooking the golf course hole 1 but the service is all over the place. We ordered chicken and got pork, a salad without dressing and it was drenched in it, and ordered tap water which was warm and didn't have any lemon in it. We were offered a free dessert for all the mishaps, but it was a defrosted "creme brulee" with no taste. The restaurant manager herself wasn't very friendly or accommodating. Breakfast also left much to be desired for. However, for the price and location it's solid value and we enjoyed it nevertheless for the 2 nights.

We stayed at the beginning of January 2014 for 4 nights at Kleine Zalze lodges.
Although the weather could have been better, we enjoyed it very much. The local golf is in excellent condition and it is a perfect place for good wine and dining.
We stayed in a superior room. Which was very clean. Only remark is the superior room was rather dark with only a small window. The breakfast was very good with an excellent service.

My husband and I spent a night at Kleine Zalze Lodge on a groupon special. Wow! The accommodation is first class - we had a one-bedroom suite with a huge living room-dining room-kitchen. Even a fireplace which we did not need in the middle of summer! Massive bathroom with separate bath and shower, and double basins. Kingsize bed, big patio. The kitchen is fully equipped so you could spend time here and do self-catering. We, however, treated ourselves to dinner under the oaks at Terroir restaurant which we have been to before. It is outstanding. Kleine Zalze wines are also excellent. We loved the swimming pool at the lodge - beautiful views, warm water. There is even a small gym which we looked at but decided not to use - the pool was much more inviting for our summer visit. Breakfast at the lodge was very good - they even had a honeycomb from which we could spoon up some honey or some comb. I would definitely recommend this as a place to spend a few days.

From the first day we saw Kleine Zalze to the day after our wedding, it has been the perfect choice, from the gardens, function room to the honeymoon suite. Samantha Boshoff was a tremendous help and the entire staff efficient, friendly and helpful. Our wedding had no hitches, even the weather came to the party. It was a beautiful, awesome day and one that will remain with us forever.

Recently returned from staying 3 nights. Stunning scenery, excellent food and wine. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the pool watching the world go by. As our first stop in South Africa was perfect to chill out before the rest of the trip.
