Can't wait to go back! Wish we had stayed longer
Babylonstoren was one of the best experiences we've ever had. The service is exceptional and the surrounding areas breathtaking. We felt immediately relaxed when we arrived. The attention to detail was amazing and very thoughtful, down to his and hers rain boots. Everyone we encountered from the staff were so warm and friendly. This is truly a farm-to-table experience with all the produce served at meals from their own gardens. There is so much to do from garden tours to afternoon drives, that we could have spent a whole week there. We can't wait to go back. Cannot recommend Babylonstoren enough.

A grand experience
Impressive property. Amazing food and breakfast experience. The gardens alone are a destination in itself. Beware that the suites section is closest to the country road (no noise issue at night but slightly as of early morning). The regular rooms are in the back of the property so this would be a more serene spot. I would have preferred feather pillows instead of those bulky synthetic stuffings. Service, interior, etc was excellent. Overall one of the very best experiences I have ever had because of the overall concept. I loves their early morning gardens tour and also the later one for hotel guests which gave it a nice exclusive touch.

This was the best place we stayed in Cape Town, and the Winelands. The lodging was wonderful, the carnivore dinner was spectacular. This was one of the more memorable things we did in our visit to S.A. and made our experience perfect.

Garden, wine, and food heaven
Wow. That’s all that needs to be said about this property. It is absolutely amazing if you’re looking to stay right on a vineyard. Every space was made for photo taking. The Garden? Spectacular. The food? Unbelievable. I wanted to buy everything. Staff were great and courteous and even received special sundowner small dishes in the evening. I wish we had stayed longer. We did all the tours and we definitely recommend them all. The heated pool was so nice after a lovely meal. It really was a small slice of Eden. Cannot wait to return for a longer stay.
