This hotel is superb. It doesn't really feel like an hotel more like a (rich) friend's house where you can get immediate and friendly service at all times. Only 11 rooms plus the villas set in stunning beauty. Our room no 3 was extremely spacious delightfully equipped with lots of over the top gold leafy furniture a bit like a...

It is a beautiful place with interesting style and lots of comfort. Service is personal and in keeping with a hotel charging these rates. The food however is a disappointment. Neither of our dinner entrees were even good -- passable is being charitable --breakfast was fine but not impressive given the surroundings (both their opulence and the farmland and gardens...

It's our third time at La residence. Its still perfect. The rooms are great. We have tried 3 rooms and one villa. Room 2 and 3 are great, room 6 amazing. The villa is a good place for the family but we usually prefer the style of the rooms in the main building. The service has not changed over the...

We have been road-tripping through South Africa for a couple of weeks, and have carefully hand-picked eevery single location we stayed at. La Residence was initially not on our itinerary, as it is way pricier than other 5-star properties in the area. However, upon examining the reviews of other travellers, looking through the pictures of past visitors on Instagram, and...

La Residence hit a perfect score on this stay. The food is amazing, the grounds are very well-kept and beautiful, and the room was spacious, clean and unique. The highlight was the staff. From the General Manager Andrew, checking-in on us on numerous occasions to Chef Darius to Garth to Nick to everyone! We would return in a second, they...

We booked to stay at this beautiful hotel for three nights on our trip on The Garden Route. When we arrived they radioed ahead to alert the staff who assembled to welcome us which was not what we were expecting at all and we were rather embarrassed. The room was just beautiful and the view to die for overlooking the...

Every suite has another theme. The furniture, the art collection, the situation of this hotel is just wonderful. From the very first moment when you arrive, you really feel that the staff are all trained to spoil their guests and they really love to do it. You always get a smile from every single member of the staff and you...

La Residence might just be the most amazing place we've ever stayed & we travel the world in style. The staff is amazing and each room is huge & unique. The food is better than possible any restaurant in the Winelands with the exception of DeGraff and the grounds surrounding the property are beautiful. 3 couples recently stayed here just...
