Amazing place to stay with family. It was my Diamond Boy 1 birthday, and we booked for weekend away.Excellent place, view , convenient and excellent customer service. Gorgeous view . Definitly a Wellness Treat, no Tv so thats reall disconnect with the city rush. We stayed there with my little one, he ran around the garden . Had a birthday party too,..... Chef baked a cake for him too.... what a wonderfull way of wrapping the first year as a mum. Congrats to DD

Room Tip: Standard rooms facing the swimming pool

This is a beautiful location, that caters for a lovely weekend break with everything a romantic getaway should have. They have a South American chef who delivers interesting versions of old classics with a twist of modern injection. There are 2 spa rooms, so no couples treatments in 1 room, but good treatments as part of the relaxing break. They even arranged a picnic and boat ride for us as part of the overall experience. One of the places in SA that knows how to deliver a couples break.

The rooms are beautiful and the staff take the time to fill the room with rose petals, sparkling wine and a fill a rose bath. The rooms don't have TV or mini bar but do have coffee and tea facilities with hair dryer to keep looking good :-).

The main reception has the wine tasting room and a bar with a TV for those wanting to keep u wtih sprorting results. The Rosendal wine is not fantastic and is over priced. However the expereience and lcoation make up for it all and the best of all is the place is run by the most AMAZING staff.

Room Tip: Room with the pool room are beautiful, however you can hear everything in the rooms on either side

Rosendal winery is a splendid retreat placed in picturesque surroundings in the South-African wine countryside. The premises is nice, with a pool and ample space for sun bathing. My wife enjoyed her spa treatment, me and the kids had a good time in the pool. The restaurant was excellent! We enjoyed a six course meal with rather nice home-grown wines. The neighbours olive oil was exquisite. Recommended!

If you look for a relaxed remote place to indulge yourselve choose this small heaven on earth. The rooms are spacoius including a wonderful shadowed porch overlooking the pool and the surroundings. The staff were amazing and focused on your well-beeing. And then to the food. Chef David creates miracles in the kitchen. We stayed for 3 nights and all meals were one long row of delicious experiences. My wife and I have been travelling all over the world but have never experienced such a complete package of relaxation, food, good wine and excellent service. Owe yourselve to travel a couple of hours from Cape Town to Rosendal to pamper and indulge yourselve...and don't forget to spend time in the spa enjoying massage and skin treatmens.

Staff are extremely friendly and accomodating. Food and wine are delicious. Had a lovely relaxing 2 nights and will recommend Rosendal to friends and family. Staff recommend activities in the area such as cruises up the Breeda River which was a fantastic experience.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home.
Staff went out of there way to make our stay special. Room was spacious and comfortable only downside no fridge.
Infinity Pool nice and warm with comfortable loungers. Spa treatment was very relaxing. Trip down bread river wih picnic enjoyable.
The Chef ( who we understand cooked for Kate and William on their honeymoon ) presented 2 days of atractive mouth watering and imagenative food.
All in all an exellent 2 days

Thank you so much for your nice review, great to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. The fridges is something we continuously evaluate, so far we have turned it down because of room-noise and energy consumption. But we do offer to put all drinks etc into our spare fridge downstairs by the reception. We look forward to have you back at Rosendal anytime soon!

We stayed here for two nights and we wished it had been more. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Upon our arrival we were shown to our room (No.2) which was stunning and given a glass of wine each to enjoy. We cannot compliment the room enough, it was excellent and immaculately clean. The chef is French and the food is fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed all our meals and the wine was very pleasant. We enjoyed a facial treatment each in the spa which was very relaxing and great value for money. The grounds are also great and the infinite pool is a wonderful treat for the hot days. Rosendal is an absolute must.
