For anyone seeking a comfortable and relaxed place to stay while exploring the wineries of Cape Province in South Africa I can thoroughly recommend the Majeka House, just outside Stellenbosch. Hidden away in a quiet residential area, the hotel provides a wonderful oasis of luxury in which to unwind at the end of a busy day of tasting! With a warm welcome, beautifully hand-crafted rooms, great views, a relaxing pool, and the fine Makaron Restaurant (one of the top 20 in South Africa), it is a very special place to stay.
Breakfasts are delicious, although I definitely preferred the anti-oxidant juice to the green revitaliser! Also, beware the white pebbles in the birdcage at dinner – I dread to think of the teeth damage if someone bit hard on them! As the above pictures illustrate, though, the food was innovatively presented, and of very high quality. Make sure you book in advance, because the restaurant gets very full!
