We enjoyed very much staying 2 nights at Clouds during our South Africa vacation. The hotel as well as the service was much appreciated. We stayed in room 1, which was very nice. The room climate, the heated floor in the bathroom, the terrace was great. What was not so nice was the noise at the reception. We heard the...

It hardly gets any better! Warm welcome, incredibly nice surroundings, lovely views, top rooms, what else is there to add... We just loved the view from our room in the morning, vineyards, mountains and a great blue sky. Just one regret that we booked for only one night.

Amazing view of the winelands and very modern arranged interior. Quite and peaceful place with a selected number of rooms. The staff was fantastic. Helpful and attentive. The best hotel until now I saw in South Africa (but maybe it is just my test;)

Our stay at the property was amazing. The rooms, the food, the view, everything was perfect. The staff is extremly friendly. Its a perfect place to relax and enjoy the day in the vineyards and Cape Town is just around the corner by car. We really can recommend this place.

We spent one night at the Clouds Estate in September 2016 and we wish we could've stayed longer! This property is beautiful and the hotel is pristine and modern. We were welcomed with a glass of wine and there was a complimentary bottle in the room as well. A golf cart took us to our lunch and wine tasting at...

Thank you for the absolutely wonderful time that we had at Clouds. I cannot think of a single way that our stay could have been made any better. From arrival until we drove out the gates we were completely spoilt. I will (and have already) recommend Clouds to everyone. Thanks again.

The view and the ground were amazing! We had wonderful service and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. We would definitely come back and stay again! We were offered a half price full day wine tour as guests which we gladly scheduled and had a wonderful time.

My colleagues and I spent the day at Clouds for an all-day off-site meeting. The tranquil setting and discrete yet professional service made for a perfect meeting venue. The food was delicious too! Thank you to the Clouds team for the great experience. We hope to be back!

We stayed one night in Clouds Estate while on honeymoon. It's such a beautiful setting among the vineyards. The hotel is very modern and comfortable. The setting for breakfast it out of this world. The only issue we had was that in the room we had you could hear a lot from reception but this was just minor. We were...

The location for this upscale small hotel is beautiful, on a well-traveled mountain pass overlooking vineyards and mountains. It is a few miles outside of Stellenbosch on the way to Franschhoek. We were welcomed and given a detailed orientation to the hotel and its facilities. Our spacious room (#1) offered a balcony view of the valley. The balcony was shared...
