The suite we had was just perfect. It had its own parking place. The lodge was easy to find. Golf courses were close and the food was very excellent. And the view from the pool was amazing. Remember to go to the wine tasting.

Situated in the wine estate of De Zalze this lodge offers a quiet and relaxing stay with view on the golf course of the estate and the grapes of this lovely South African wine, our lodge offered all comfort one needs to enjoy holidays.

The views from this Lodge are amazing....I liked the configuration of the guest accommodation and since we were in a suite the space was substantial.....a few issues though...this isn't a cheap place to stay...at reception we were asked to fill in a paper record which asked for our credit card number AND security code to be written down...that was unbelievable,...

Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite that was superb - spacious with lovely view over the golf course and mountains. Staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was good, particularly the pastries. My first stay here, but I will be travelling reasonably often to Stellenbosch and will definitely stay here again.

I stayed in an amazing suite looking onto the mountains. Fabulous evening supported by friendly staff. Will definitely be back! Set amongst the vineyards and overlooking the golf course, the setting is perfect for a visitor to Stellenbosch / Somerset West and the surrounding areas. Well worth a visit!

Perfect location and accommodation for the upcoming wedding season. We stayed in a 4 bedroom house which was extremely comfortable. Has all the basics you need and is well maintained. Beautiful scenery and close to a number of great wine farms.

Lovely estate with very friendly staff. Had a fantastic meal at Terroir which is a short walk from the lodge. The golf course looked fabulous although we did not play due to the course being hollow cored. Had a lovely mountain bike tour around the estate and the vineyard which the lodge provided free of charge. Great breakfast with lovely...

Had an amazing apartment overlooking the 1st tee. Due to a wet start we had the course to ourselves but the sun then came out and it was a really lovely round. The clubhouse served a delicious lunch and the clubs we hired were a very good standard. Definitely recommend a stay here!
