Nice rooms and good location

Vineyard hotel was ideally located for getting out of Cape Town to go to other places. The rooms were nice and large and the pool was lovely. The gardens were well kept and it was nice to see tortoises and different birds roaming around. The breakfast was lovely, and we would highly recommend the eggs benedict. However, we did have trouble eating in the restaurants in the evening - we had tried to book to eat in the bar for evening we arrived but were told we could not book, then we tried to eat there that evening but there were no tables due to a conference having been on during the day. We ate in their main restaurant on that first night and the bar the next, but we were not impressed with either food. Overpriced and got our orders wrong, the food was then not brilliant either. The pool food was good however and so were the milkshakes. Would stay here again but would book to eat out every night.

Vineyard Hotel review

The beds were comfortably. The room had no view to speak of and was on the dark side.

The food in the bar (when you could get a seat) was not good.

In the restaurant the breakfast was good, the evening meals were not.

Great start at Vineyard

We really enjoyed our stay here.

The garden suite we had was a bit removed from the main hotel giving us a great deal of privacy.

The kids also really enjoyed the tortoises around the property.

Comfortable hotel with excellent facilities

We had a mountain view overlooking the gardens and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Car parking was good and secure. We enjoyed the riverside walk to the vineyard itself, a project in partnership with local producers whose excellent wines feature on the hotel wine lists. We enjoyed dinner in The Square restaurant twice with an excellent pianist one evening and a harpist the other.

The food was excellent and service at dinner was very good, but that at breakfast less so. The buffet was very good but the availability of coffee was inconsistent.

We ate outside the hotel one evening. We tried to book a taxi through the Guest Relations desk. It didn't materialise but the hotel organised a replacement immediately so it all worked out OK.

Vineyard Hotel review

A lovely hotel and it is an oasis of calm near the centre of Capetown.

The rooms are very well appointed although the view from the Mountain cheaper room was better than the more expensive courtyard room we had initially.

Myogi restaurant food unbelievable but service not up to the same standard. Gym good. Some staff excellent, some staff what you'd expect in rather a large hotel.

Overall it was comfy and nice but it didn't quite live up to it's billing.

Expert Africa comments

For reference, the courtyard rooms at the Vineyard are more economical than the mountain view rooms.

Super holiday at the Vineyard Hotel

We have stayed here before and it was as good as ever.

The key ingredient is the staff who are wonderful, always cheerful and helpful and make you feel that they really care about your comfort.

The surroundings (garden and view of mountain) are wonderful and the place retains its individual character while offering every comfort.

Definitely not a plastic, could be anywhere hotel which is why we like it.

Vineyard Hotel review

Talk about saving the best till last! We had opted for a "garden cottage" - little were we to know that the cottage in question was a huge first floor flat, with 2 double bedrooms, bathrooms, etc., within the beautiful gardens of this fabulous 5* hotel, nestled in the foothills of Table Mountain, which formed a stunning backdrop. It was a little way out of the centre of Cape Town, but we didn't find this a problem, as we had a car. Its location was perfect for getting to Kirstenbosch.

Everything about the hotel was quality, and we wanted for nothing. The travel desk staff were also very helpful when we had problems checking in for our return flight to Cape Town. Worth every penny!

Vineyard Hotel review

The Vineyard was a larger hotel than we normally prefer. However it was comfortable, in a good position and set in lovely grounds. There was plenty of choice for reasonably priced meals.

The only downside was arrival. we arrived at 9:30 from the overnight flight, and it was 1:30 pm before our room was ready. On several visits to reception it seemed that 'the room would be ready when it was ready, no apparent effort to prioritise.

Vineyard Hotel

A very good hotel despite the rather cramped, suburban entrance. Lovely rooms, beautiful garden and good food.
