Le Manoir de Brendel Estate
Ranked #27 of 64 Franschhoek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2013

It was so peaceful and relaxing to be in luxury and close to growing vines. Makes it so much better to sit in a big bath, hot water, bubbles and drinking your favorite red! The room was the size of a "rugbyfield", the decor and furniture out of your best magazine and the service prompt and friendly.
If you want to be spoiled then add a visit to the SPA and the next morning breakfast gets you going for the day.

Room Tip: Definitely honeymoon suite!!

It was the most wonderful, magical day! We had a winder wonderland wedding and it was absolutely amazing! The staff went beyond measure to ensure that the event went off smoothly. The food was excellent. The accommodation was so comfortable and 1st class.
I can highly recommend this venue for anyone planning to have a wedding in Franschhoek.

Room Tip: Rooms on pool side suite have the most beautiful views.

We have enjoyed staying at Manoir Brendel since 2008. On our last visit in March 2013 we were upgraded to the magnificent Honeymoon Suite, although not on honeymoon.We stayed there four nights before returning to the UK.
We have always stayed in the poolside rooms but this was superb.
The staff were delightful and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home.
We look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: All the poolside rooms.

We had an amazing time at Le Manoir de Brendel during a long weekend in June. Karin, the manager, was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. She went out of her way to ensure that our stay was great. The estate is tranquil and pretty, and a great place to relax. The room was lovely, as was the fresh breakfast we enjoyed each morning. The staff are friendly and the service was top notch. We highly recommend this B&B.

We found this bed & breakfast when Cape Town was totally booked for the New Year's holiday. It is less than an hours drive from airport. We were a late arrival from an overseas flight, past 2300. (We used Cape Town Transfers to get there, another excellent service.) Hostess was up waiting for us to open gate as it is locked in early evening. Room was clean, cool, quiet, and we slept like rocks. Breakfast was on the terrace or lawn. Buffet or order from small but sufficient menu. If you arrange prior to arrival, a sandwich lunch is available. Hostess booked dinner for us each night, both excellent restaurants who sent drivers to pick us up. Lovely gardens, trail around vineyard and along river, views of mountains. Staff is friendly, efficient and most helpful, Will stay here again if the opportunity arrives.

Room Tip: Room 6 was our room, large with many windows and patio.

My daughter was married at Le Manoir de Brendel on 17 November and Nevina the estate manager and her team went out of her way to accommodate us and make my daughter's day a dream! Upgraded rooms and special service went a long way to make this a memorable event. We had 7 hours of photographs which says a lot about the venue.

Room Tip: Get a pool facing room and if possible the "Reserve" room with private jacuzzi - stunning
