Reviews for Knorhoek Guest House & Wines
The Sunday lunch is very different from your typical restaurant experience. Really good food!
Great food fantastic service
Amazing place to visit whilst in Stellenbosch. Went there for the Craft Beers vs Wine festival; was a very chilled, laid-back vibe. Loved it!
A great place for a family holiday on a wine farm. Great food, lodging and walking trails. Fabulous
Absolutely amazing venue and restaurant! Will recommend this to anyone!
Fantastic food, sheltered from the wind! Great wedding venue
Badly managed, poor communications, lack of attention to detail.Wine tasting cellar has limited cold storage for white, sparkling and rose wines. A tiny 24 bottle fridge. You are a vineyard!!!Your restaurant, guest house and wine tasking centre managers do not talk to each other and as a result the staff look stupid in front of customers when simple requests made months in advance are not passed on.In our room at the guesthouse the taps leaked - not on in The Cape at the moment, one tap actually fell off, the bedside lights did not work and the door onto the balcony was so warped we could not open it. At breakfast, the guesthouse ran out of bread and marmalade only an hour into the serving time. The manager did nothing and just stood there behind the reception counter as if nothing was wrong. The staff were embarrassed - they were trying their best. Totally unacceptable but for R1,200 per night - they are having a laugh!! They aren't now.
So impressed with this beautiful place. The service was outstanding! Having a gluten, free, meat free lunch was absolutely amazing at Towerbosch!
Beautiful setting. Lovely wine. Superb food . Excellent staff.
This was about the best holiday ever! Very friendly and hospitable hosts. if you what you want is peace, quiet and Bass fishing, Knorhoek is the place for you. We will definitely be back soon.
