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.

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.

Fair 4,0
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.
