We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite, they did not know that the weekend was booked as a celebratory weekend for our wedding anniversary. It was such an awesome surprise. Everything was perfect.

We had a truly wonderful experience - The staff were most accommodating and nothing seemed to be a problem for them at all. The accommodation is beautiful and the surrounding magnificent. The breakfast was superb. Will certainly return again.

We have stayed at Le Manoir de Brendel 3 times now, which already says something positive! We have only praise for how things were on our recent visit. A lovely room; spotlessly clean; very comfy bed; lashings of hot water; tea and coffee facilities; minibar, snacks, a complimentary bottle of their wine (as well as sherry and rusks); plenty of...

I stayed at Le Manoir with a group of girlfriends recently. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable, and the location itself very pretty. The staff were charming and helpful. However, the whole place seems a bit tired at the edges - the breakfast was mediocre, we were woken by people walking in the room above ours and... More

At the fringes of Franchhoek, the southafrican valley for wine and dining-lovers, the manoir is a charming and quite place with excellent value for the price. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I can really recommend this place!

It used to be a very nice place with an extremely nice garden but now the proprietor changed and it weakened significantly. Service and maintenance of the property changed. The service weakened clearly in comparison to last year. The rooms are ok but little bit outworn and not 5 star. Be careful with the shuttle service which is charged. The... More

Booked this quite late for 3 nights and were not disappointed. It is a nice distance from the main town of Franschhoek, we used our own car but believe that they can arrange transport if required.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Le-Manoir-de-Brendel Estate is situated 55km’s from Cape Town International Airport, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, a mere 5 minute drive, from the historical Franschhoek Village, rated amongst the top gourmet & wine towns of South Africa on the R45. Welcome to those in the search of the extraordinary, whether it is breath-taking beauty, a sense of calm or the special refinements of culture, Le-Manoir-de-Brendel offers just that. Our 5-star rating represents the highest category for accommodation and service. Continental & Hot Breakfast is served overlooking the Klein Drakenstein Mountain and vineyards. Bring your racquet along and enjoy a game of tennis on our court overlooking the vineyards. If you cannot break away from your exercise regime there is always our gym for a serious workout. Both young and old enjoy playing a game of chess on our Giant Garden Chessboard. For more action, there’s a 1.2km walking trail through the vineyards along the Franschhoek River and over the Berg River via a wooden terrace. Lazing in and around our swimming pool is what our guests do best when the Franschhoek summer days are upon us. Lounging around our guest lounge fireplace is just the thing to do on cold and rainy days. Book a wine tasting session in the afternoon enjoying our best wines and the basics of professional wine tasting knowledge. You will get a chance to identify the various aromas of the wine and take information with you for future tastings. All suites are serviced daily and equipped with air conditioners, under-floor heating, direct dial telephone, M-Net, mini-bar, coffee and tea making facilities, safe for valuables, hairdryer, gowns, slippers and luxury bathroom amenities. Children are welcome. We can add single beds to most of our very spacious rooms with double bathrooms if the family suite is not available – see our surcharge rates. Memorable wedding and other functions have been hosted on our picturesque estate. ... more   less
