An ideal location in Cape Town

I first thought that we were too far out of the city but it was ideal for visiting all parts eg botanical gardens, Table Mountain and Victoria Quay. The staff were very helpful about arranging taxis for us as we did not want to drive.

Breakfast was good ( we did not have dinner there ).
Gardens lovely and well maintained.

Vineyard Hotel and Spa review

Wow! This is a gorgeous hotel - which has all the benefits of being a modern, well equipped facility, supported by plenty of "old world charm"!

We spent 3 nights here, and were upgraded on arrival to the newly completed wing of the hotel. The food was excellent - both in the main hotel restaurant, and in the concession next door - and very reasonably priced, with an excellent selection of wines. The spa facilities too are lovely, so it's worth finding a couple of hours to pamper yourself whilst you're here!

Afternoon tea, sat outside in the garden, in the shade of Table Mountain, is a lovely memory to take away ........ In addition, it is very well located, and we had no problems at all heading out and exploring all across the Cape from the hotel.

Vineyard Hotel and Spa review

We've stayed at the Vineyard before in 1994 and 1995. It's been over-expanded in our view (the pool-side area must be a nightmare in high season), but that doesn't matter at this time of the year when the hotel is desperate for customers. We were upgraded from a Courtyard room to a suite.

The Vineyard's breakfast buffet is one of the best we've ever encountered and it's presently offering an excellent Winter dinner menu of 5 courses for R165. Extremely helpful staff.

Vineyard Hotel and Spa review

We had an upgrade to a mountain view, which got our holiday off to a great start!

We ate all our evening meals in the bar area, and the menu was just what we wanted - not too formal, and friendly staff.

Vineyard Hotel and Spa review

Only stayed one night. We would have had to be there a week to come to grips with all the lighting combinations in the room.

Luxury in the Vineyard

No good staying here unless you have a car, but driving around is easy. Gardens very peaceful and spotting giant tortoises is good fun. We used the bar mostly for evening meals - very good value and a wide choice. The main restaurant was perhaps a little formal and expensive for every day use. I loved the bedtime stories left on the pillow! A very original touch. The hotel has an interesting history and you should spend time looking at the photos and reading the book provided in the rooms.
Only criticism is that, although internet connection was available for laptops in the rooms, holidaymakers don't usually carry these and their only option was the business centre, where charges were some 3 times that of internet cafes.

Vineyard Hotel Capetown

An easy afternoon drive down to Cape Town from Langebaan brought us to the Vineyard hotel. We had a nice large quiet comfortable room at the far end of the building, The grounds were wonderful.

On the first morning, breakfast was very much a DIY affair as the staff seemd to be pre-occupied with a conference taking place. However, this improved markedly on he following mornings where we were able to have it on the mezzanine floor with the wonderful view of Table Mountain facing us.

After staying at small lodges, this hotel felt very impersonal. although the staff were friendly and helpful and the service was good.

We made some enjoyable excursions from here to the wine regions, whale watching at Hermanus, the drive to the Cape, penguins at Boulders Beach etc - as much as time allowed. The route over Chapman's Peak Drive wasn't open.

The only disappointment was that the day we decided to go to the top of Table Mountain the mists came in and we had to come down very quickly ( to a very sunny Cape Town).
