This visit was our 4th stay at Lovane over the last 7 years and in the best possible way, nothing has changed over this time. The accommodation is lovely and spacious and the setting is beautiful as well as convenient - we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Stellenbosch. We booked the luxury 'Champagne' room again and it was great, huge...

We absolutely treasure it when our guests come back! We are however sad that your experience with the restaurant was unpleasant. You are absolutely correct. It is new and we are still refining a number of aspects. Please do alert me when you come back again .... I'd like to give you a complimentary bottle of wine. Regards Theresa

Very nice clean place very small pool lovely wines that are not sold outside the vineyard due to size. Nice touch of having a bottle on the house left for you when you arrive. Decent breakfast. Would definitely use again

It is easy to drive right past this beautiful boutique wine estate as it sits between a few big names in the wine industry, but I would recommend you drive a little slower as you won't want to miss this one. It is conveniently located close to the town of Stellenbosch, but far enough away that you still get that...

Bedroom a little staid but generally comfortable. Location of our room beside stairwell lacked privacy from other passing guests unless you closed the curtains during the day, maybe a net curtain would deal with this problem.

Lovane was absolutely lovely for our two night stay in Stellenbosch. The staff was super friendly and attentive. Breakfast and their wine was delicious. The facility while small was perfect for a winelands retreat. It was very clean as well. I would give this accomodation a 4.5 reserving 5's for accomodations that blew me away. For the price though Lovane...

Awesome room and setting, but breakfast served only at eight, which introduces a problem for business customers who have meetings in the morning. Fortunately the lady made a plan for us and we could eat something, but the standard breakfast time needs to be revisited.
