everything great except ...
I feel the food was not up to par with the quality of the rest of the hotel
I loved the location. Beautiful lakes and vineyards with lots of bird
viewing! Excellent value for money
Restaurant closed early. Do not get the courtyard room because the view
is ugly. Next time I would pay more for a better view.
Special rate we got our room for.
After touring the Western Cape - We booked Asara for our last night in South Africa and what a great surprise- The staff where friendly and helpful -beautiful large rooms and a view over the pond and wineyard.... We arrived quite late and they kept the kitchen open for us to have dinner. We left with quite a few bottles of splendid wine in the suitcase and wonderful memories. Thank you
Efficient staff, true 5-star feel down to the turn down service, posh accomodations and surroundings. Absolutely delicious breakfasts, great value for room service, and good wine.
Distance from Stellenbosch itself and the price for late check-out.
Beautiful surroundings, excellent welcome and service. Rooms were gorgeous and the whole estate was very well maintained. The on site restaurant was excellent (Raphaels) and was one of the best meals we had in South Africa
The hot water in our room didnt work but this was quickly dealt with and the service was brilliant
Absoluteley enjoyed the stay. Room was excellent, breakfast really good and overall excellent experience.
Restaurant very pricey.
From the moment we arrived, to when we left, all the staff we're very friendly and welcoming and professional... To the point that we forgot our jacket there after checkout and they called to let us know they had found it!
Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Raphael's restaurant had delicious food. Breakfast was a real feast!
I could not have picked a better hotel in which to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. Although I made my booking the night before our arrival, the staff at Asara went above and beyond to make our stay special, even having a delicious cake and champagne ready in our room much to my husband's delight (and I didn't even request this!). Breakfast the next morning was perfect and the setting in which we found ourselves helped us relax and enjoy our little escape to its fullest.
Dinner at the pricey Raphael's onsite was a little disappointing. We ordered the pork belly (R140) and the roast baby chicken (R95) which didn't live up to expectations. The restaurant is beautiful though and we enjoyed our drink at Sansibar next door.
Setting and rooms.
Food in the pretty expensive restaurant was not always good.
The location, friendly and caring staff and warm welcome when we arrive.
great place with very friendly staff
The beautiful setting overlooking the vineyard and lake, delicious food and wine, excellent service and comfortable room with amazing turnaround service.
The staff, location, venue, quality
Friendly, helpful staff.
Wine tasting boring compared to Bergkelder, but better than Spier and Vergelegen despite the simple venue. Asara have some good wines.
Bit close to Stellenbosch, one does hear the traffic from the city at rush hour. No gym.
WiFi patchy (avoid 201) and slow, but acceptable for email.
The hotel is just great!!
So beautiful!! And its wine tasting is the best!
We couldn't have asked for a better stay while in Stellenbosch. The
rooms were spacious, clean, and had beautiful views of the vinyards and
the Stellenbosch montains. Sometimes in the morning a light mist would
roll over the mountains-- a view that's hard to beat.
The hotel staff was AMAZING. They came to clean the room in the morning and did a wonderful turn down service in the evening (you get a delicious caramel!). I also lost my phone on a bus to a safari. It was lost for 3 days and I had nearly given up hope. The hotel staff kept trying to retrieve my phone and finally found it and had it delivered to me at my next destination (free of charge) in Cape Town. How amazing!
The wine at the estate was also lovely. I recommend the red cabernet sauvignon. The two restaurants at the hotel (Sansibar and Raphael's) were also delicious-- and also had amazing views.
This is the perfect place to book for a quiet and beautiful stay in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The relaxing atmosphere and hospitality of he people
Returning home from such beauty
The mountain facing room was lovely and had a covered balcony.
The Porter was very helpful.
The pool area and bar were great with lovely views.
The restaurant again had lovely views and the food was great with good service and friendly helpful staff.
The first impression was fantastic, the guy who took us to our room was friendly and took us on a mini tour before dropping us at our room. The restaurant and bar are fantastic and the general atmosphere is one of luxury and tranquility. We will definitely return to Asara
Polite Helpful Staff
Nice Pool to relax by
Excellent inexpensive wines
The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the hotel was well appointed.
The rooms were very nice and comfortable.
The two rooms were to be paid separately and although they charged the
couple I was travelling with for their room, they also charge me for
their room and mine. At an establishment like this this type of thing
should not happen.
splendid setting,with on- site winery.
