Lanzerac Manor & Winery

Stellenbosch, Winelands

Virgin rating

The hotel

Seemingly lost in the vineyards and foothills of Jonkershoek Valley, this hideaway is wrapped in hypnotically beautiful scenery – but is just five minutes from the historic town of Stellenbosch. Since the first vines were planted more than 300 years ago, Lanzerac Hotel & Spa has become a haven for oenophiles. And its legacy lives on, with its ancient oak trees, historic wine collection, original design features, and time-honoured viticulture techniques still used on this working wine farm. You can drink in vineyard views from your elegant room, which opens onto the estate’s gardens. And you can drink in the world-famous Lanzerac wines in the tasting room, after a tour of the bottle-lined wine cellar. On the off-chance you fancy a break from the wine, you can indulge in spa treatments or relax in the gardens with a picnic from the gourmet deli.

I stayed at Lanzerac a few years ago and thought the hotel was fairly tired. This time everything was faultless. From check in to check out the stay was superb. Breakfast was amazing, service at the bar and wine tasting was good and the room was fabulous. Well done!

We stayed here for one night and were absolutely stunned by this beautiful place! On arrival we were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and by super friendly staff. Our room and the estate itself were very beautiful and the scenery with mountains and vineyards is just breathtaking. All of the staff was super attentive, helpful and friendly throughout the stay. The fully stocked minibar was included and also provided a wide array of snacks. Our daughter received a little gift on arrival and turndown left a nice treat on the pillow. We can most definitely recommend this hotel. The reason we do not give 5 points is that the food was unfortunately not very special (or good). We had dinner in the Taphuis restaurant. We think that if the restaurant stepped up their game this would most definitely be the perfect place. Read less
