Hotel was quite ok

Clean, good location & comfortable rooms
Our stay was ok, but overall we were disappointed because the photos on the site didn't match the reality. We thought there would be a view on the winegards or on the garden, but this wasn't the fact at all. Also we experienced noise from other guests or even from the owners itself in the morning.

A very relaxing stay.

Tranquility and helpfulness of hosts.
we and another couple stayed at ons genot for four nights and we all enjoyed every minute. we were on a wining and golfing trip and found plenty to occupy ourselves within a few kilometres. ons genot is a few kilometres out of stellenbosch and so private transportation is necessary, although it does supply tranquility and relaxation in its rural setting. our rooms were spacious and clean, with patios with outdoor seating and good quality towels etc - one was an upgrade to air-conitioning the other cooled by a ceiling fan. both worked well. our hosts, marleen and eric, were incredibly helpful on all fronts - eric's it expertise being very useful and marleen's all-round bonhommie contributing to our enjoyment of our stay. on our final morning (we were due to fly home that night) we had arranged to play golf nearby but could get only an early teetime. flight bag storage for the day was no problem and marleen very kindly prepared a generous packed breakfast for the four of us as sustenance during the round - much appreciated, marleen. the radish restaurant (in the grounds) provided excellent food (the steaks, with their sauces were outstanding) in a beautiful setting. a cooked breakfast was also served in the restaurant. the grounds were kept tidy and the pool cleaned of leaves etc each morning.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Hidden Valley Winery and resaurant - top class on all counts. The Big Easy Restaurant in Stellenbosch - excellent food and wine at reasonable prices.

A pearl

Big genuine rooms
I liked the fact that the house has some history, you can feel it in the walls. I give it 3,5 out of 5. And I live in hotels about 150 days a year. Nothing fancy but ok.

Home away from home

Lovely country setting, comfortable rooms and excellent personal service
Ons Genot country lodge is like a home away from home, idylic country setting, lovely views of the mountains and surrounding vineyards. Very good personal service from Marleen. We'll definitely come back whenever we are coming to South Africa again.

reasonable hotel

we had a budget room in this hotel. the room is nog particulary beautiful, mainly the decoration is dated. although clean. the lady at the desk was not really nice, more doing her job.
Restaurant Tip: the wine estate next to the hotel (hartenberg) has a very nice garden were you can have a picnic on reservation. also they have a very good shiraz.

Very Relaxing

The food was amazing
My husband and I stayed here to relax and Ons Genot certainly gave us that pleasure. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful. As we didn't have a car and it was Good Friday they made a lot of phone calls on our behalf to figure out which wineries were open and priced the drivers for us. They had free internet, a pool, tennis court and are next door to a winery and a golf course. The restaurant was amazing I can highly recommend the "stuffed" steak. Look out for their special nights ie 40% off of steak, buy one meal get a desert free. Highly recommend it.

Schönes,sauberes und gemütliches Guesthouse

PC mit kostenlosem Internetzugang, schöne Zimmer
Die Inhaberin hat uns tolle Tips für unseren weiteren Reiseverlauf gegeben. Das Restaurant auf dem Gelände, in dem auch das Frühstück zubereitet wird, ist sehr gut. Wir haben hier unser bestes Steak (3 Wochen Südafrika) gegessen. Wir hatten leider nur eine Übernachtung im Ons Genot.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Vergelegen Estate, tolles Weingut mit herrlichen Gärten: Lourensford Road Cape 7130, Südafrika Tel.: 021 847 1334 Hatten hier auch eine Weinprobe.
