We are a family of 5 with adult children. We stayed here for one night. It was enough. The hotel is overbooked and understaffed. We stayed in a cottage at the end of the property. Loads of building materials outside the front door did not engender the type of vibe we were seeking. It is a hotel with an identity...

I went there 24 years ago, always wanted to go back and did it! Although the bathroom is a bit tired, the room itself was good and comfortable. The restaurant is very nice and the breakfast is excellent. Service is truely friendly. But for this hotel it's not just about of the facilities and services. There is something more. What...

Thank you so much for your comments. The staff are the core of the Vineyard, many having given a number of years service, and are here to welcome back many of returning guests. I hope you got to sit on the benches in different areas of the garden. The birdlife is also quite spectacular. Regards Roy Davies

We stayed in a junior suite with garden view.... a quiet and luxurious room..... perfect ! Our last stay was 21 years ago (1994).... hotel gardens are still gorgeous with a view on table mountain, when having breakfast on the terrace. Friendly service and food choices here. However we have noticed this hotel has grown and developed into a conference...

This hotel has stunning grounds, trails, and views of the nearby mountains, and dining outside at either of the restaurants is a real treat in summer. The pool is also lovely, with a great sitting area and service. The rooms (at least on the wing I was on) all have mini patios and balconies to look out over the views...

Absolutely beautiful setting and hotel but very very slow service. Had to ask for my coffee numerous times. Food and beverage manager contacted. Manager came to our table and explained that the kitchen was backed up. It finally arrived after a 50 minute wait. Very disappointed. Will not bring friends and family here again unless there's a big change!

Sometimes it is nice with some luxury. It was incredible to wake up with the view of Table Mountain and a lovely hotel garden each morning.
