We arrived a bit early as we wanted to spend as long at Asara as we could. Room was not ready but not to worry as we went and had lunch in the Bar , then went for wine tasting. By then the room was ready, so we were taken to the room and shown the rooms facilities. We spend...

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful - from the time you make a reservation to the time of departure you are made to feel like a guest. The reception area has a warm, welcoming feel with a bottle of wine ready for you. The restaurant set up is brilliant with a dam, vineyard and mountain views. So is...

What a great hotel.Beautifull gardens and immaculate lawns,service is great and what a view across the lake. Restaurants' standards high and food perfectly served, breakfast the highlight of the day. We filled the room below Raphaels for a private party and enjoyed the atmosphere

Where do I start praising this wonderful Hotel ! It is our second visit in two years and hopefully won't be our last. We first visited in 2012 when we got engaged and wanted to come back here at the end of our honeymoon tour of South Africa, so we were lucky enough to stay for four nights on this...

Stunning location. Lovely modern hotel with spacious and well-appointed rooms. We got an upgrade to a mini suite overlooking the swimming pool, lake and vineyard - fabulous! Great wine tasting followed by lovely dinner - very good food and service. Delicious breakfast on the verandah, taking in the amazing views. A stay to remember - wish we had booked more...

We stayed a week at Asara as the place to sleep after a day at the University of Stellenbosch. We arrived a day earlier and were rewarded by living in a dream! Embeded in beautiful vineyards, the place is a reflection of heaven! The only downside is that the pool is not being taken care of (and no one is...

We stayed one night at the Asara wine estate in June to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. From the stunning room, to the wonderful lunch and the amazing dinner it's a day and night which will never be forgotten. Add to this the beautiful environment and the wine tasting which was delightful and it's difficult to imagine a better place...

...stayed over there with my partner while on tour through SA & was just amazed: the location in these beautiful wineyards is so relaxing, the service above what you would expect and the staff is so friendly that you feel really sorry when you have to leave again... By the way: I can very much recommend the Raphael's restaurant!

Amazing, amazing, amazing views!!! On sunny days these views from the breakfast table can not be beaten. Second time for us to stay here. Reception staff need some coaching. Rooms are of good size and lay out. 5km from Stellenbosch centre, thus own transport is a must. Lovely surroundings, where you can follow the walking trails.
