4/10 Fair

Our expectations were high of such a well know establishment. We found it first of all very crowded with day visitors everywhere. It was a rainy day and the result is that you can hardly walk to your room as nothing is paved. Our shoes were full of mud on arrival. Bathroom floor way too hot, very uncomfortable. Breakfast terrible. Bread is uncovered from 8 onwards, so if you arrive at 9 it’s all very dry. Fruit so big cut that it’s impossible to eat. Omelet was raw on the inside. Onion cut way too big and raw. We skipped the second nights breakfast and moved on to next destination. We definitely won’t return.

Heaven on earth
Babylonstoren is like heaven on earth. It is so beautiful that you have to pinch yourself every day to make sure that you are not dreaming. The staff are all amazing and they take such pride in the farm and the hotel. All of the food is locally sourced on the farm itself or nearby and the quality and freshness was unbelievable. We were genuinely sad to leave and we promised that we would be back next year. If there is one place where you must stay in South Africa, then that is Babylonstoren - in fact it is probably the finest place we have stayed in our travels all over the world.

Can't wait to go back! Wish we had stayed longer
Babylonstoren was one of the best experiences we've ever had. The service is exceptional and the surrounding areas breathtaking. We felt immediately relaxed when we arrived. The attention to detail was amazing and very thoughtful, down to his and hers rain boots. Everyone we encountered from the staff were so warm and friendly. This is truly a farm-to-table experience with all the produce served at meals from their own gardens. There is so much to do from garden tours to afternoon drives, that we could have spent a whole week there. We can't wait to go back. Cannot recommend Babylonstoren enough.
