In 2012 I found Knorhoek to be exactly what I needed - quiet, secure, friendly, well located, with great food. When I found myself looking for accommodation in the Stellenbosch area this year it was the obvious choice and as good as before.

Another beautiful stay at Knorhoek. Again we stayed in 'Rose Cottage' which is in Knorhoek's beautiful grounds. Comfortable air conditioned room. Lovely wine tasting. I must mention Liesel's cooking. You have a gem there!!! Wonderful cooking and presentation. Some of the best meals we had on our whole trip. All the staff were very friendly. Many thanks.

Dear Alexander Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we really appreciate your recommendations and compliments. One of the reasons for the set menu is that the sirloin will be done to perfection, depending on your booking time. Wishing you a prosperous 2017, and lots of fun discovering new places.

Stayed over for a quick business trip. Wish I could have stayed longer. Really gorgeous setting. Friendly staff all round! Must return soon for a couple's stay. Wine tasting on offer. Beautiful gardens; mountains as a backdrop. Close enough to uber to Stellenbosch but good food served on premises.
