Great specials for the weekend, tasty (and hearty!) breakfast, and an east 10min walk to the centre of town. Loved the garden and pool - spent lazy afternoons reading in the sun. Rooms were cosy and clean.

Confusion about booking meant we had to drive around to collect key. Room was not ready, no towels, no toilet paper, two lights not working and the shower light was not fixed even after I had reported it. Initially we were told that we had to drive to Felix Café for breakfast on the first day but when I complained...

I booked a surprise getaway for my parents at 1881 Guest House at Shiraz Estate and they were very impress with the guesthouse. The feedback was as follow: Very friendly and helpful staff, neat and clean rooms and delicious breakfast. They had such a good stay, that they invited their friends to join them on the second night. Thank you...

Excellent service in the most beautiful setting and surroundings! The landlady has an exquisiteness, synonomous with the estate, in how she welcomes and engage with the guests. And her support staff is equally of high assistance and friendly. Five star service without a doubt!

The lodging was beyond amazing. The only thing that the room could still use is a tv, other than that it was incredible. The breakfast is out of this world. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and the guest house was quiet, relaxing and surrounded with beauty.

Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend away at the guest house. The room was spacious and comfortable with a stunning view of the Kasteelberg Mountain. The staff were friendly and the wine and food was definitely worth a second visit. Thank you!

It was a very pleasant stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice clean rooms and aircon - super must for Riebeek-Kasteel in summer. Some advise - to have some plastic cups and plate for kids (kids friendly venue) But overall happy.
