Had a wonderful 2 nights here. Food, service and accommodation all outstanding. The property is about 40 mins from Franschoek and is well worth the visit. There is a winery next door, walking distance, also serving good food and does free wine tasting for guests of the hotel. The scenery is spectacular and it is so peaceful. They can also... More

Excellent weekend away at a superb home from home boutique hotel. We were made to feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. Exceptional location at the end of the valley. Right next to Welvanpas mountain biking trails. Service was fantastic. Was spotless, food was great. A GREAT weekend away. Will definitely recommend this boutique hotel.

Grand Dedale is in a gorgeous location in the deep valleys and vineyards outside Wellington. Every room is decorated in style and with great character. It is difficult not to wax too eloquently about it!

This was our first time at the Grand Dedale. We had a great stay. Everything was perfect: the courtesy of the staff, the food, the quality of the room, the beauty of the setting. We will return with pleasure.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience at Grand Dédale. The wine estate is ideally located, tucked away at the base of Bainskloof Pass, the staff were all very welcoming and professional, our room was spacious and luxurious and both our meals were delicious. Highly recommended!

The Grand Dedale is absolutely fabulous. A wonderful place to relax and unwind, where all of the staff are attentive and helpful, and you can enjoy great food and wine in an idyllic setting. We are already planning a return trip! Many thanks to Angelo, Tina and their team for making our honeymoon so memorable.

The staff are attentive but discreet - breakfast is delicious and so much choice. Dinner is expensive and the food was good but not superior or memorable. Chef could... More

My wife and I arrived early evening, straight from a long working week. We immediately felt like we were home away from home. The owners and staff were friendly and professional. We enjoyed a private dinner in our suite and complimented the chef for her presentation and delicate use of ingredients. We particularly liked the opulent decor of our suite... More
