Outstanding experience at Boschendal
Well appointed large rooms with quality finishes. Stunning Mountain View’s from patios and a lovely fireplace in the lounge. Unexpected complimentary bottle of wine on arrival.

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.
Pooja Rameshchandra, us3 night trip
Very good 8,0
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.

A long way from Franschhoek
This is 18km from Franschhoek so a taxi back cost us £25, not ideally placed. Views and surroundings are beautiful if you don’t mind being isolated but we like going to restaurants in the town Cottages had a shared pool and an individual BBQ They are fine but expensive for what you get. The cottage for 2 had literally 2 of everything, plates, glasses, forks etc in the ‘fully equipped kitchen’ Our experience was soured by the fact that the werf restaurant was closed on both nights we were there, the farm tours weren’t available and there was a charge for the 15 minute cellar tour even as farm guests, whereas every other winery we visited had a free one. Add to this an oven and phone that didn’t work, not somewhere we would return to I’m afraid
