The staff were welcoming and friendly. The location was just perfect for the function we were attending and our room was comfortable and clean. Bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was included which was very nice. A good place to stop when doing the wine route.

The chosen room was huge with equally impressive bathroom and it's own plunge pool in a small private garden. Throughout Elmarie was enthusiastic and knowledgeable with a happy smiling greeting every time we passed. A great...

We visited L'Avenir to taste wine and as it was lunchtime nibbles would be nice and they were. We had a cheese and meat board with our tastings. Jody looked after us and he provided detail on the wine and grapes and apologised for us waiting - there was a birthday celebration on at the same time. We bought some...

We stayed at L'Avenir for two nights on our trip along the garden route. Firstly the setting is stunning , the rooms are clean and comfortable. The wine ( Pinotage Single Block) is amazing. Elmarie at reception and her colleague, (sorry don't know her name but she wore a headband) are worth their weight in gold. They are both a...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of our tour around South Africa . Lovely room even though it was a standard one and big bathroom. Infinity pool a lovely surprise and the grounds superb. On closer inspection the pool needed a good clean. Had to move all the plastic pipes when you got in and the sunbed mattresses were...

We stayed for just one night at L'avenir. There was a little confusion on check in, a couple of emails had been missed but it didn't seem to be a problem. We stayed in a feature suite which was spacious and had the best working air conditioner I've come across. There are a few bits of attention to detail that...

Wow, we were recommended to stay here by a friend the London foodie who was part of the Stellenblog festival last summer and boy it was brilliant. Such a lovely understated winery, we had a room over looking the pool which was lovely. The pool itself is gorgeous, really nice that the winery is just beneath the hotel so you...

L'Avenir is a very well situated, well managed and really lovely Lodge near Stellenbosch. Not only the rooms and the property itself is very nice well keept and good located. Also the wines of the estate and the reception-area for tasting is remarkable. Don't miss a Tasting there! And don't miss relaxing at the lovely pool!
