We had an amazing stay at Val du Charron. We were in the Coach House and the view of the mountains were spectacular. We had total privacy and the room was of the highest quality. We booked for lunch at the Grill Room the next day and had a fantastic meal. Would definitely recommend this Guesthouse!

Thank you to all the staff at Val Du Charon, we had such a lovely time. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to assist. The farm is absolutely beautiful and the views amazing. A perfect spot to just wind down and relax for a weekend.

We booked in for a Sunday night on our way home from Cape Town, we arrived mid morning and where shown around, elected to lunch at the Piza e Vino, excellent meal at this popular venue. Our room was elegant & extremely comfortable. Left after an enjoyable English breakfast. Would definitely recommend venue.

For the price you pay you think everything should be perfect. Miles tried his best but wasn't always available and we had to ask someone else for help. Pool was super cold and of no use. Grill Room was exceptional and we loved it. We left our charger in the room and are still waiting for someone to come back...

We had a wonderful time, our room was far away from the playground with an amazing view and total privacy. Just what we asked for. The staff was extremely friendly and competent. We also enjoyed the wine tasting experience very much.

I had a wonderful one night stay in the guesthouse just outside Wellington. The view from the bedroom & balcony was beautiful. Room spacious and clean. The Local Grill restaurant served a delicious omelette for breakfast (which was recommended by the very friendly waitress). The only thing better than the breakfast was the view! Try the Four Legs white with...

Thank you for this beautiful review,nice to hear you enjoyed our scrumptious breakfast and the company of the waitress who served you.I agree,nothing compares to the view,even the clean,spacious rooms don't come close,and nothing beats having a sun-downer on the deck with a glass of any of our renowned wines,looking down at the vineyards and the magnificent expanse of the...

Awesome views across the valley, but not from the family room which has no view, so don't book this room if you don't need the extra beds. It is also the only room with a bath and shower, but I think even my skinny bum might have got stuck in it- it's really tiny. Hotel beds do tend to be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Val du Charron guest house is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town. The guest house comprises nine luxurious suites, each individually furnished. The Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. Guests can enjoy a full farmer's breakfast served in the dining area; which integrates with the wine tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day. For a holistic view of the wine making process or simply to enjoy the tranquility of the farm, a number of walks and bike rides have been set up around the farm that highlight aspects such as the various cultivars of wine grown, the bee hives necessary to pollinate the vines and the dams that catch and supply the farm with all its water. Guests may also fish the basis for bass on a catch and releases basis.During Wellington's hot summer months a swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests.During the winter months large fire places with couches provide ambiance for board games or reading while sipping on a glass of Val du Charron's premium wine. ... more   less
