Amazing hotel with great views. Walking distance from some wineries. Great service.

While a couple of kilometers outside Stellenbosch the view and close proximity to two of the finest wineries more than compensates. The staff was most solicitous and the breakfast astoundingly good. Best eggs Benedict I have ever enjoyed

A perfect and very special stay
Banhoek Lodge is truly one of the best stays we have ever had. The room is gorgeous with perfect design, the bed comfortable and the views are absolutely stunning. The breakfast, homemade every morning by the lovely people that work there, is delicious. The staff is so welcoming and kind, and we especially want to thank Ms. Pamela for everything. This is a very special place and we will definitely be returning.

Banhoek Lodge is Franschhoek’s best kept secret. Nestled amidst several small vineyards, it has stunning mountain and valley views from every room. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the Cape wine lands.

Nice stay with incredible views. Noisy rooms
Nice stay with incredible views and pleasant front of house staff. The breakfasts were lovely on our balcony however it was an hour late one morning due to an admin error. The accessibility from main road is great and there are beautiful walks available on the estate. Clean rooms and well decorated. Main issues are that the toilet is not private from the rest of the room and we the sound proofing between rooms is very poor, we could hear conversations and TV in room next door which was disappointing.

10 out of 10
The best hotel of our trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth! The room was very spacious and well maintained. The view from the rooms are spectacular, overlooking another wine estate, as well as the mountains around the hotel. Breakfast was nice. The location was also really good, close to several great restaurants in the region. Very romantic experience! They even gave us a free coupon for a wine tasting close to the hotel, which we really enjoyed.

Outstanding property with a stunning view
Outstanding stay at an updated, and smartly designed property with a breathtakingly beautiful (and completely unobstructed) view literally right in front of you. Great service too, with breakfast served in the common eating area or to your room at no charge—a nice touch during COVID and attempts to keep distance. The rooms are very spacious, have great furniture and finishings, and a terrace that is second to none for the aforementioned scenery. The stay could not have been better. I will definitely be back.
