We stayed for one night in a family room with our two young children (4 and 2 years old). The children loved it as there is a pool and a splash park. We loved it as the view if fantastic and the service excellent. We wished we had stayed for two nights as it makes a great base for exploring...

It was nice to sit with a glass of wine looking across the valley to the mystical mountains. The Coach House rooms were spacious and very well furnished, it was a luxury to stay although both the plunge pool and the main pool were small. The restaurant offered wine tasting and a good selection of steaks.

It was nice to stay at the wine farm with a very beautiful surrounding, The price was too high as compared to what you get. Restaurang was in our view quite average. The pool was unattractive and dirty.

The room was magnificent. The view was great. The room service was excellent. The restaurant service could have been a bit better. We had to call the waitrons a few times to place an order. I enjoyed the massage that I had. The road in front of our room was a bit noisy during the day, as vehicles were passing...

We had very high expectations, given the pictures featured. The rooms and pool are nothing like the website. There is a loading bay next to spa a rooms, very strange. We asked for a wine, told they are still bottling it!!! I am sure there are better places to stay.

What a relaxing stay. We were bowled over by the location, the views, the friendliness and the food. We were spoilt by a great venue only 40mins from our home. Well done on top class quality in the Cape

Misleading adverts, no clue about hospitality, management missing in action - only redeemable feature was the poor young man on reception. Our room had been slept in by the manager - and had not been made up by 2pm. The swimming pool is a disgrace as is the barn full of junk at the reception area. Clearly a family run...

Almost as good as perfect. Service, rooms, suffoundings. The Piza and Vino restaurant is wonderful and the witresses always helpful and courteous, althought the manager was rather stressed. I'm sure he meant to help, but he gave the impression of chasing up the staff. Needs to relax a little!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Val du Charron guest house is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town. The guest house comprises nine luxurious suites, each individually furnished. The Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. Guests can enjoy a full farmer's breakfast served in the dining area; which integrates with the wine tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day. For a holistic view of the wine making process or simply to enjoy the tranquility of the farm, a number of walks and bike rides have been set up around the farm that highlight aspects such as the various cultivars of wine grown, the bee hives necessary to pollinate the vines and the dams that catch and supply the farm with all its water. Guests may also fish the basis for bass on a catch and releases basis.During Wellington's hot summer months a swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests.During the winter months large fire places with couches provide ambiance for board games or reading while sipping on a glass of Val du Charron's premium wine. ... more   less
