The view from Clouds is totally beautiful, which is reason enough to visit. We weren't overwhelmed by the estate itself - comfortable and stylish, though food and wine aren't top notch - but if you want to visit this amazing region and Clouds is the price range you're looking for, then we would certainly recommend it.

Breathtaking views, wonderful and attentive staff, delicious food and excellent recommendations - what more can you ask for! We were treated like royalty. Upon our arrival, we were given a glass of wine from their vineyard, which was delicious! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and the room was full of flowers and flower petals, as well as...

Clouds offers world class accommodation, views and service. Situated in one of the most spectacular valleys in the winelands, you cannot find a better place to refresh. You can stay in all day because the food and wines there are great or you can go to any of the top restaurants in the area.

On a business trip, thought to visit Stellenbosch from Cape Town. Having read the reviews I chose clouds for the location, service, and amazing views, as well being in the heart of the wine country. It hit the mark 100%. Amazing breakfast, great service, so many places to just relax and enjoy the views and think about life. I had...

Hidden away in Stellenbosch is a lovely estate. I enjoyed the approach from the security guard and the friendly reception staff, chef and waitors. It is private, unique and we could feel the personal touch in our luxurious room. If you are looking for perfect spot to relax, unwind and bond with your partner anr friends, this is the place...

As we slowly meandered through Stellenbosch, it became clear that the atmosphere was different.A plethora of Wine Estates form part of this region.Finally we reached our destination.Reception was more than warm with a glass of a cold drink on the Rocks!!!!!!!

After reading so many glowing reviews and a very high average rating of Clouds Estate on TripAdvisor my wife and I looked forward to our three-night stay at Clouds which was to be part of a two week trip to the Winelands. Sad to say, but of the five places we stayed at during this trip (Asara, Arabella, Spier, Holden...
