Lanzerac Hotel & Spa Stellenbosch Review
Lanzerac Hotel & Spa
Lanzerac Hotel & Spa is 300-year-old wine estate on the outskirts of Stellenbosch town. It is situated in the beautiful vineyard setting, with incredible views over the mountains.
The drive to the estate was amazing and we were fascinated with beautiful views, of the perfectly maintained estate, upon our arrival. We were a little early and our room was not ready yet, so we went for a walk along the property, through the stunning gardens and the views were incredible.
The staff at the front desk was really friendly and they arranged that we received a lovely Luxury Room with a little terrace. The room itself was huge (40 sq. meters of space), with nice furniture and a luxurious bathroom with black and white bathtub. So beautiful!

Altogether the Lanzerac Hotel has forty-eight rooms, which are individually decorated and they all have a private patio with amazing views over the land.
As the guest of the hotel you get a free wine cellar tour and also free wine tasting. We really enjoyed the short cellar tour and learned a few things about the hotel history as well. They offer pairings of chocolate or cheese to complement the wines. So, we had to try both and had a lovely time enjoying their amazing wines.
If you are not a guest of the hotel you can visit their wine cellar daily at 11h00 and 15h00 and taste the wines until 17h30. We would definitely recommend that you stay here, or at least plain a visit to the beautiful Lanzerac Estate and taste their vines in this breathtaking scenery.
Lanzerac Hotel has beautiful restaurants decorated with original antiques. You can enjoy your breakfast at The Terrace Restaurant, dinner at the hotel’s main à la carte restaurant The Governors Hall and your drinks at The Taphuis Bar.

The Terrace Restaurant is where we had our breakfast and dinner. Because of the warm weather, beautiful setting overlooking the gardens and mountains we really enjoyed this restaurant. We loved the casual and relaxing atmosphere with views of the old Manor House. You can enjoy your breakfast, a la carte lunch and dinner here, of course with a glass (or two) of their award-winning wines.
If you are craving for a homemade bread, cake or pastries, you can enjoy a wide selection at the Lanzerac Deli. They opened their delicatessen in 2013 and it is very popular among the tourists and locals. You can purchase homemade jams, chutneys, coffee, tea, chocolate, cheese and even a sandwich, which you can enjoy in the garden overlooking the vineyards.
SPA & POOL
You can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life just by walking around the beautiful gardens, but if you wish to relax a bit more, you can visit their Spa with indoor heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi and enjoy one of their revolutionary massages.
WHY YOU SHOULD BOOK…
If you have the chance to visit the Winelands we would recommend you at least one night at the beautiful Lanzerac Hotel & Spa. From here you can explore the wine country, visit the famous Stellenbosch and Franschhoek Winelands and enjoy breathtaking landscape. The Lanzerac Wine Estate is one of the most beautiful hotels in the Cape Winelands. The service is outstanding and the staff is nice, friendly and very knowledgeable about the estate and its history. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the estate is very well maintained and the views of the dramatic mountain ranges are breathtaking. We will be more than happy to return to this luxurious estate!
