Clouds Estate in Stellenbosch

With one of the most celebrated views in the Cape, Clouds Estate is an undiscovered gem in the heart of the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek Winelands. Situated at the top of the Helshoogte Pass, this unique 4.5 hectare estate overlooks the beautiful Banhoek Valley, edged by the majestic Drakenstein with Simonsberg taking pride of place in the foreground.

The modern B&B guest house features seven beautifully appointed spacious bedrooms, all with full en-suite bathrooms and large covered balconies. Furniture has been carefully selected both internationally and locally to create a simplistic yet cutting-edge feel.

In addition, we offer five self-catering villas with magnificent views, a double bedroom, bathroom, lounge with air-conditioning, DStv, sliding doors to the patio and fully-fitted kitchenette. Each cottage has its own private patio with barbecue facility and access to the swimming pool.

Furthermore, Clouds Estate offers two conference facilities with the ability to change from one large conference/wedding hall to two smaller conference rooms. Clouds has perfected a synergy between corporate and leisure activities. This makes it suitable for corporate functions, workshops, launches, year-end functions, and seminars.

A beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony site is situated in front of the guest house with a breathtaking mountain backdrop. The bar offers the best vantage point of the uninterrupted mountain and Franschhoek valley views, and is ideal for pre-drinks.

The staff at the restaurant/tasting room were friendly and helpful.
We loved the generous snack portions with the wine tasting and of course the exquisite view!

Lovely spot to base yourself in the stellenbosch wine region. Excellent food and comfortable suites. Clouds is a small hotel that offers excellent value for money.

I would suggest diving next door one evening for dinner at Graff. Exceptional meal obviously at a premium price.

Generous breakfast choices as well

All in all, are very happy with the place. I've rated it a4 star because on the three occasions I called 9 for assistance, the phone rang out!

Very nice, quiet, boutique hotel. The winery is a bit smaller, but very pretty and has a gorgeous back drop. Because there are only a few rooms, staff is readily available and there are always seats at breakfast/dinner. A nice stop in wine country.

Clouds Estate was brilliant. The view was stunning across to the Franschhoek Valley. The service standard was high. The breakfast was good. I definitely recommend this hotel. Our room 10 was a 1 bedroom suite and cost R2.7k a night.
