Recent Guest Reviews

This hotel lives up to the standard it promises. The estate itself as well as the staff, the food and the spa are beautiful and let us leave with wonderful memories and in total relaxation. Usually we find something that we are not completely happy with, but with the Lanzerac, there is nothing we could complain about. Absolutely worth the 5 stars! Can highly recommend!

Lanzerac is now THE 5 star hotel to stay at in Stellenbosch. No expense has been spared on the quality renovations. The hotel rooms/bathrooms are large & individually & beautifully appointed. Governors Hall restaurant is another highlight, as are the wines which are bold & fruit driven. If you are looking for that special place to stay then Lanzerac has to be at the top of your list.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. It is set in the most beautiful part of Stellenbosch with the wine farm surrounding it. Words cannot adequately describe how wonderful this hotel is. We stayed in Rick’s Cottage which offers a living room, huge bedroom and a magnificent bathroom, with views of the vineyards from your own private gazebo and pool. The rest of our group stayed in suites in the Courtyard which has its own private lap size pool. We had most of our meals in the hotel. Dinner was in the Governor’s Room and without doubt the meals were among the best we have had. The hotel boasts a full spa with fitness center and heated indoor pool. It is a stunning hotel and worth six stars plus.

Thought I had died and gone to heaven. Absolutely blown away by the beauty of this hotel. Room quality is incredible. Beautiful new rooms with amazing decor. Lots of little extra touches that make this hotel 5 star. Classy and distinguished.
