We really enjoyed our overnight stay at this hotel. The courtyard rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The views of the vineyards and mountains are stunning. We would certainly return, but only if and when the hotel is more wheelchair friendly (see comments below).

This was out first stay at this hotel, an overnight stop from our base in Hermanus. Very comfortable and sizeable room - clean, quiet and relaxing. Great breakfast - buffet style with hot food cooked to order - lovely view and setting. We would consider staying here again on a future visit to the area...

This was our third stay and just as good as the first - shame big booking so only one night available. Greeted with wine on arrival and take to room on golf buggy. We were in an upstairs room with balcony looking out onto the vineyards. Well furnished and clean rooms but bathrooms could do with a door or shutter...

What I liked most was staying inside the vineyard, and it was harvest season - full of grapes. The hotel is big and well decorated but not concentrated in the minimum decoration details. It´s basic and enough. On the other hand, it´s comfortable, the rooms are huge and the balcony faces the vineyards, the lake and the mountains. I wish...

What a great find. The hotel is about a mile from central Stellenbosch and very easy to get to. The rooms are large and either in the main building or in annex blocks. We were in an annex, and this would be my choice. These rooms have glorious views over the valley and far away hills. Its a really beautiful...

What a setup!! We were driving on our way home and decided to give Asara a try as we always seem to go straight past this one. I cannot believe that we have missed this for all these years. The wine tasting room has a stunning viewing window into their holding room for the wine barrels with an enormous chandelier....

Stayed the first four nights of March 2015 here. Positives; Great location - 30 minutes down the M12 from Cape Town airport and 10 minutes from central Stellenbosch. Modern - managed with Teutonic efficiency by Germans so well maintained and fully functioning. Relatively young clientele and a few obvious honeymooners. Great views - across vineyards and reservoirs to the mountains...

Our stay are Asara was wonderful...we hated to leave. We spent over a week there and after a day of wine tasting or touring around Stellenbosch, it was a great place to relax by the pool with a great glass/bottle of wine. The estate allows for great hikes/photography through the vineyards which is a great way to start your day....

We had a lovely holiday at the Asara Hotel. The views were to die for, the staff were so friendly and the service was second to none during our holiday in South Africa. Our room was very comfortable and the views from the balcony over the winelands were stunning. The food was lovely and the wine delicious - what's not...

We booked Asara Hotel 5 month ago: the Bell Tower Suit.
