We have just returned from Capetown having spent two totally relaxing nights in Franschoek at Le Manoir de Brendel Estate. This really was a highlight of our South African holiday and we were only sorry we were not staying for longer. Charmaine made us feel totally welcome and at home and I cannot praise her efficiency and kindness highly enough....

We initially booked in somewhere else but due to a wedding party needing our room, we were moved here. No complaints at all! This wine estate is beautiful. Breakfast is very good and can be enjoyed in the patio overlooking the vineyard and immaculate gardens. The room we had was massive, with a huge bed. While I have stayed in...

Ideally situated for all the restaurants and amenities in the town. Staff were very friendly and efficient and were always available for advice. There is a good choice of restaurants suiting all budgets. The surrounding area is very scenic and there are lots of different wine experiences available.

The hotel has a lovely relaxing feel to it and the staff are all very helpful and courteous. We were particularly grateful to Charmaine who helped with a problem we had with a restaurant booking.

Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Charmaine arranged restaurant bookings and taxis for us and could not have been more helpful. Suite was very comfortable and well equipped with a nice terrace area outside. Nice pool and garden. Free wine tasting on arrival for guests, and welcome bottle of wine in room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Le-Manoir-de-Brendel Estate is situated 55km’s from Cape Town International Airport, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, a mere 5 minute drive, from the historical Franschhoek Village, rated amongst the top gourmet & wine towns of South Africa on the R45. Welcome to those in the search of the extraordinary, whether it is breath-taking beauty, a sense of calm or the special refinements of culture, Le-Manoir-de-Brendel offers just that. Our 5-star rating represents the highest category for accommodation and service. Continental & Hot Breakfast is served overlooking the Klein Drakenstein Mountain and vineyards. Bring your racquet along and enjoy a game of tennis on our court overlooking the vineyards. If you cannot break away from your exercise regime there is always our gym for a serious workout. Both young and old enjoy playing a game of chess on our Giant Garden Chessboard. For more action, there’s a 1.2km walking trail through the vineyards along the Franschhoek River and over the Berg River via a wooden terrace. Lazing in and around our swimming pool is what our guests do best when the Franschhoek summer days are upon us. Lounging around our guest lounge fireplace is just the thing to do on cold and rainy days. Book a wine tasting session in the afternoon enjoying our best wines and the basics of professional wine tasting knowledge. You will get a chance to identify the various aromas of the wine and take information with you for future tastings. All suites are serviced daily and equipped with air conditioners, under-floor heating, direct dial telephone, M-Net, mini-bar, coffee and tea making facilities, safe for valuables, hairdryer, gowns, slippers and luxury bathroom amenities. Children are welcome. We can add single beds to most of our very spacious rooms with double bathrooms if the family suite is not available – see our surcharge rates. Memorable wedding and other functions have been hosted on our picturesque estate. ... more   less
