Lanzerac Manor & Winery

Stellenbosch, Winelands

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious room, superb cuisine, friendly staff and wonderful surrounds this hotel has to offer. The Spa facilities and local wine all added to the fantastic experience. Can highly recommend the Lanzerac for a pampered getaway.

My girlfriend and I decided to stay for a short getaway here. Abraham, Walter and the rest of the staff were exceptional in making us feel welcome. Over and above that - I broke my leg prior to the stay and they were more than happy to accommodate me to make my holiday more comfortable

I’ve never stayed in a hotel anywhere in the world where the attention to detail was better . The complimentary bar in my room was restocked for the afternoon housekeeping after I had just checked in and went out for a walk Fabulous staff, beautiful setting and an absolutely delightful treat Well done team

We could not fault anything here...well positioned in terms of access to other farms and the city centre, the facilities are truly world class. Service was superlative with every person prepared to go the extra mile for you.

Had lunch at the Delhi under the trees. Awesome atmosphere, surrounded by a surreal garden. The menu is extensive and even serves all day breakfast. The service by waiter Emmanuel was outstanding. He is the most friendly waiter ever and extremely knowledgible about their products. Would highly recommend this superb restaurant for all meals.
