We stayed at this hotel for New Years Eve ,the welcome was very friendly and the staff very welcoming,our room was large with two double beds and doors opening out onto a terrace.
Breakfast is a grand affair with most things that any one could want.
I would recommend this hotel with a five star rating.

Room Tip: Our room with 2 double beds was room 205 a nice corner room

I stayed at the hotel whilst running an event there. The facilities for running a business meeting are not the greatest but the positive attitude and friendliness of the service made up for any shortcomings. The Devon Valley Hotel has a lovely terrace for a beer at the end of the working day, or a glass of their own exceptional wine. The food in the restaurant is excellent (with wine recommendations) and they have a wood fired pizza oven as a bonus. There are many opportunities to taste wines locally and the town of Stellenbosch is only a very short drive away so it's a great place if you want to chill out and relax for a few days.

My stay at Devon Valley was a real treat, all that can be expected from a weekend away in the Cape Winelands. We started the weekend with pizza, wine and live music on the terrace, enjoying the sunset. Saturday morning we enjoyed a hike and spent the afternoon relaxing on the loungers by the pool area. I highly recommend their Sunday buffet. I look forward to our return.

I will start with the room, M1 in the Old Part. It was like going back in time, old colonial feel. Massive 4 poster bed, large bathroom with "his and hers" shower plus a large bath. The patio doors opened onto a private area it had fantastic views especially to wake up to. There was a private small pool to the rear with a few beds which was part of the price, we paid extra for this but the other guests tried to use it. Not surprising as the main pool was half full of leaves. The food was of a good standard but they needed a "snack menu" because sometimes we did not want a full meal as we had eaten at lunchtime. Pizzas etc all week would have been good. It needs a bit of TLC to bring it up to a better standard. The staff were great, especially our housekeeper, she folded our clothes and put them away every day. Would I stop there again? probably as it was close to the town without being in the centre.

Room Tip: The Exec rooms in the manor house

Dear Oscardog1234

Many thanks for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your room. Certainly the Manor house has that special feel.

We have recently taken on two new team members a rooms division manager and a new housekeeper. I am sure they will help me add that extra TLC you mention.

We look forward to welcoming you home to The Devon Valley Hotel.

Kind regards

Having been to Stellenbosch before and also visited Devon Valley Hotel for a wine tasting, we chose this Hotel with some confidence. Added to this was the excellent room rate we got, which was 3 nights for the price of 2, a bottle of wine and breakfast.

On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. Our room key and wifi password issued. (wifi is not free at the hotel). However they have two computers which have internet access and are free to use. A concierge took us to our room and carried our bags.

We chose the new block of rooms that overlook a vineyard. They are obviously called Vineyard Rooms. (pics attached). We had ground floor room 38. The rooms are very spacious, I really liked the sliding wood shutter doors that separate the bathroom. These can be opened fully to create one large open space. The rooms are well equipped. The bathroom has twin sinks, hairdryer, separate walk in shower with a rainfall style head unit and a stand alone bath. The bed is king size which is very comfortable. There is a free to use safe, TV with some satellite stations, tea and coffee making facilities. There is aircon that is free and the unit was surprisingly quiet when running. The room was very clean and the sheets felt of good quality cotton. They have a turn down service, but if you are in your room already they hand you a small pack of Biscotti, a nice little touch.

I recommend the ground floor as you have a patio with table and chairs. Each evening we enjoyed sitting outside with a bottle of wine and watched the sun set over the hills.

The Hotel itself is excellent. On a Friday and Saturday they open the outside Pizza oven. We had a lovely handmade Pizza. The bar serves good food and reasonably priced. We did not use the Flavours Restaurant.

Breakfast is buffet style, served in the main dining room and has hot and cold options. Breakfast was very good with all food fresh and appetising. A big bonus is you can eat as much as you like!!

I recommend doing their wine tasting. You can sit at the outside patio and the wine waiter will come to you and explain about their Wine in an informal and informative way.

The Hotel is ideally situated as it is close to Stellenbosch but far enough out to be a quiet retreat. A car is essential though.

I believe Devon Valley Hotel has all the facilities you would need for a few nights stay. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Any ground floor room in the newish blocks that house the Vineyard Rooms
