    Great Accomodation Poor Restaurant

    The accommodation and setting is superior. The Deli & Coffee house is very nice, but unfortunately in off season is not open in the evening. This was our second visit to their restaurant. The wines are over priced. They do not have a corkage system, even though you may have bought Boschendal wine. Their menu is concoction of hype and poor ingredients. What they describe as steak are a few pieces of sinewy off trim that any decent butcher would have discarded.

    Our stay at Boschendal was amazing! Could not fault a thing. They think about every little things and that’s what makes them so special. Also thoroughly enjoyed walks around the farm estate and the Friday night market was fabulous with lots of drinks food and vendors. The deli does some great little foods and pastries.

    Tip top condition. Everything is in its place and well thought out. Signboards to cottages can be bigger or solar-lighted at night as it is pitch black. A great place to stay !

    Everything about our stay was excellent and we were blown away by our cottage. Spacious, clean, modern. We highly recommend Boschendal and will use it as a base to explore the winelands in future.

    A cozy vineyard/farm estate in wine country!

    One of the loveliest places i have ever visited. I stayed with a group in the 3 bedroom suite the first night and then moved to a 1 bedroom for my second night. Wonderful amenities such as a free shuttle around the property, free wine and fresh milk in the fridge for your morning coffee. They have a farm shop that makes cooking in the suites so easy. The rooms i stayed in offered an indoor fireplace and an outdoor BBQ which really makes it so fun and enjoyable for group stays! My only complaint was with the spa: the staff was lovely, but the quality of the massage was not great. But that would not deter me from coming here again. I 100% would stay here again - if not just for the scenery.

    Beautiful place but I don’t recommend it.

    Unfortunately, the experience was not what we expected, due to the family of mice living in the Cottage. We didn’t fly 26 hours, from the United States to go sleep with mice. They did not get us a new room until 10pm and we were leaving at 9am the following day. I was told when checking out that I would receive an email regarding are stay at the Clarence Cottage. I’m still waiting patently for their email. I’ve emailed them 2 or 3 times this week and still no response.
