We spent two nights of our honeymoon at the Clouds Estate. The view from the main area and from our balcony was astonishing! The staff from the hotel was very kind and willing to assist us in any request, especially Tefy and Leticha. In summary, We loved staying at the Clouds and would definitely come back if we go to...

We stayed in Room number 1, which was lovely with an amazing view, however the noise from reception was a bit loud, as the room is right by reception. However, overall it was an amazing stay and the breakfast was really good (eggs benedict was great)!

On my way back from Franschhoek this morning on my bicycle, battling up the hill past Le Pommier, I glanced up to see the balcony where last Sunday morning I was sipping my coffee. It was an unbelievable stay, with excellent service and the food was superb.

We booked 2 Villas for a well deserved night in the Winelands for us as a newly married couple and our Brother, Sister-in-law and 18 yr Nephew from the UK. The Villa's are truly beautiful with views to die for across the beautiful mountains and vineyards. Inside they are modern and very spacious, comfortable and almost tempt you to stay...

This was my first time to stay at such a luxurious place as Clouds Estate, but it was definitely beyond what I was expecting. The staff were friendly and were going over and beyond to make the last two nights of our honeymoon amazing. It is beautifully decorated and everything looked and felt high-class. The only suggestion would be to...

We stayed at Clouds in September 2015 for two nights. Although when we arrived it was raining and very misty, the weather cleared to reveal a beautiful view from our room! The room was beautifully decorated and had Charlotte Rhys toiletries in the bathroom. Minibar was complimentary and stocked with a bottle of Clouds' own wine. The food in the...

What stood out the most was the stunning views. The reception lady seemed to do everything, she even served us food. We had dinner which other guests blasted soccer which was not so romantic although the meal was really nice. We were surprised that on returning to the room they were still doing the romantic turn down, awkward, not sure...
