The location was very tranquil and beautiful. A very peaceful location to get away from it all.
Love the food and enjoyed the bar!!
Fantastic hotel I can't fault a thing! We will be back in the future
No misrepresentation here. I t was BETTER than shown on the Internet - quite refreshing. Great restraunt, spacious rooms, incredible views. Little touches like umbrellas to go from building to building when it rains
Spacious comfortable rooms with beautiful vineyard views
Location, lay out of the hotel, fine restaurant,
Was exactly as shown on the internet site. Beautiful vineyard setting with excellent rooms, facilities. Restraunt and bar was first class.
We liked the tranquillity and the quality of the dinners!
A nice welcome of the quest at the reception would make it superb..
Everything! Superb location, very well run.
Only grumble was no shower by swimming pool.
Great location. Very good room and attentive staff. They made us feel welcome from the very start with wine at check in. Raphael's was excellent, as was Sansibar. They held on to our bags while we went into Stellenbosch.
The whole package ! It felt very special . Watching the stars emerge in the clear night sky was magical .
The group of people talking very loudly around the pool area. It is a small intimate area in a superb setting but this group shouted at each other across the pool rather than move closer and speak quietly . I felt very sorry for the younger couples wanting to enjoy the romance. Not the hotels fault , but could possibly ask in signs/literature for respect the peaceful surroundings . Luckily the same group chose to eat out and we didn't have to endure the loud shouting .
It was a short business stay so did not experience much. Hoping for a longer leisure stay next time
Setting, rooms, bathrooms, facilities aand luxury
Raphael restuarant - food very poor and service not up to std .
wine tasting was also 3 star
The hotel itself is set in a stunning place with amazing views from the room as well as from the bar / restaurant. The front of house staff are efficient - but not warm.
What let's this hotel down is the lack of cohesive service in the restaurant, it's all a bit rushed, they don't seem to communicate with each other and we got the impression that they weren't happy. Very few smiles across the whole of the estate which is sad as this place could be "really" good.
Excellent restaurant, bar and deli
Attention to detail
no gym to work out in
awesome hotel, truly deserving of its 5 star rating. went the extra mile for our honeymoon night by adding complimentary strawberries & champagne when we got back to our room the evening.
Spacious room and bathroom; excellent food - breakfast some tof the best we have seen. Price of wine good - beautiful setting.
Limitd TV channels - no tablecloths on tables in diningroom.
Gorgeous location with unbeatable service and great food.
Excellent facilities in a great location. The superior rooms are large and well appointed with a good size bathroom and balcony. Every effort is made to keep the premises spotless.
The front office staff were very helpful.
The breakfast quality was not as good as the other hotels that we stayed in on our South African trip. The service was too mechanical and there was no personal touch.
We enjoyed the stay very much. Beautiful hotel, great breakfast with amazing views, exquisite dinner at Raphael's, friendly and helpful staff.
the location, the staff and the level of comfort in the accommodation
Relax, very friendly stuff, very good wines
We had only 5 days to be there. Next time we will stay longer.
Good food and restaurant great value onfood and wine
Asara is really 5 stars worth.
We were well looked after!
Friendly and helpful staff
Close to Stellenbosch and Cape Town
Breakfast variety and quality
Quiet hotel with restaurant separated from it
Rooms beautiful and
General luxurious ambience, spacious and relaxing accommodation and
location, staff very friendly and enjoyed the discounted walk-in rate
the second time!
The room on the second night was a little far from the car park but
Good 5 star hotel!
Staff can be better trained to have professional service, bad management!
Even in the deluxe room, only one person can use shower with hot water.. You need to wait a hour for second person..
It is just a wonderful place. Entering the gate is like entering wonderland :). As we visited Asara in early spring, floor heating was much appreciated.
Although, we bought two bottles of wine they charged us for tasting. For the price you better have a full glass at their restaurant. The wine was pretty good though as was the rest of the hotel.
The staff were really great. The rooms were large and well decorated.
Bathrooms are huge! Nice Balcony overlooking the vineyards and pond.
Food in main dining room was excellent with good service. Great
breakfast with plenty of choices to start the day.
Everything was great!
Excellent facilities, very good value for money.
Nice pub / cigar bar
Hotel laid out in seperate blocks and you have to walk outside to your room. Was cold and wet when we stayed. Otherwise property lovely
The quiet. Friendly porters and restaurant staff. The scenery is
The receptionist wasnt the friendliest. A seperate spa would have
Room was fantastic
Could expand facilities for business center
Location and views are awesome
Staff are super friendly and competent
Quiet and peaceful
I ate something that made me sick, I think it was my dinner
the comfort, breakfast, the wine-tasting, the sigarbar, very frendly staff etc...
that customers from the hotel need to pay yhe wine-tasting, in the winter restaurant and rooms to cold, no indoor swimming pool for a 5 star hotel
Superb food at the Restaurant
Check in staff unfriendly
Large room, pleasant welcome and friendly helpful staff. Incredible views over the vineyard and mountains
Even though we chose one of the cheapest rooms, we were extremely impressed with it. The staff were extremely helpful and the restaurants were excellent.
The food, the facilities, the staff, the views and everything especially how unique the property and the concept is.
The hotel is great all round. Once you've checked in you have no reason to be driving around Stellenbosch. I especially loved that there were many options for dining. We also did walks around the estate and the views were just breath taking.
Everything, absolutely wonderful. Attention to detail was amazing
Rooms are fantastic restaurant is brilliant snf the food outstanding
Reception staff were not very friendly
Everything was amazing, the staff are very friendly and warm. I will definitely go back.
Great staff, wonderful facilities and rooms, spectacular wine estate setting, and gourmet dinning. A great gateway hotel for the entire Stellenbosch wine area
The hotel is located in a beautiful landscape, among vineyards, olive trees and a lake, between the mountains... the room is extremely comfortable. Breakfast is excelent and the hotel still has a restaurant, a bar, a delli and, of course, the winery with wine tasting.
Great value for money!
We wanted to stay one more night, but the Hotel was unable to accommodate us at the same rate as we received a room upgrade. We were willing to move to a smaller room, but none was available. Would have been nice if they could have been a bit more accommodating.
