Interesting experience”

We went for the wine club members function there and wanted to stay close so we did not have to drive afterwards. The location and views are stunning and the staff was really great - I was a bit disappointed about the bathroom experience though As it turns out our room did not have its own bathroom. We had a shared bathroom that was all the way on the other side of the house Apparently there are only 2 rooms with en-suits I wish it stated this on the website or that someone had warned us about this beforehand I also thought the price was a bit steep for just a room with no bathroom and no breakfast It felt a bit like staying over in my grandmother's spare room It was fine for just one night and to be near the wine tasting but I would not recommend for a long stay unless you ask for the room with a bathroom attached

Amazing place to stay in Stellenbosch!”

I stayed here with a friend and we had an incredible time. The homestead is so beautiful, and the staff are very welcoming. It's a great spot to enjoy wine tastings in the region while staying at a peaceful spot with gorgeous views.

Great an escape”

Dornier Homestead is a hidden gem, it is tucked away is vineyards and surrounded by an amazing garden perfectly kept despite the heat and drought. It's quiet and perfect for an romantic breakaway. The staff where friendly and extremely helpful. I would suggest staying longer than a night to really make the most out of this stay.

Above average”

The whole experience was disappointing. There was no top sheet on the bed - bottom sheet and duvet only - unsatisfactory - so you either were too hot or had nothing on you. Very overpriced for the facility offered - certainly not recommendable. Needs revampting badly!

Traumhafte Lage”

Garten, Schwimmteich, Haus

Die Lage des Donier Homestead ist unglaublich schön! Weniger schön war es, dass wir kein eigenes Badezimmer/Toilette hatten. Uns wurde zwar versichert, dass das auf dem Flur befindliche Badezimmer nur zur unserer Verfügung stünde, aber die Realität sah anders aus. Eine Radfahrgruppe, die alle anderen Zimmer gebucht hatte, nutze auch unser Bad und unsere Toilette..... .

Grosse kapholländische Villa mit viel Umschwung. Sehr grosses Zimmer in sehr ruhiger und idyllischer Umgebung.

Sehr gutes Essen. Am Abend gibs Tapas (bis 19.00 Uhr). Preis-Leistung stimmt beim Essen absolut. Freundliches Personal. Preis-Leistung beim Homestead stimmt weniger. Frühstück war nicht inbegriffen, der Gartenbereich war nicht gepflegt und im Naturpool war kein Wasser drin.
