Asara wine estate is absolutely beautiful. Everything was superb. The wine tasting was in a lovely setting. The rooms were comfortable, clean and very roomy. The service was impeccable. The dinner and breakfast were delicious! And the view from the estate is breathtaking! I highly recommend this wine estate!!

Weird place
I was visiting with my two grown sons for one night during a 2 wk holiday. I booked a rm for the three of us on Agoda. Upon arrival, two unyielding, almost militant reception staffers announced with an almost joyful spite that They would not provide a cot for my 17 yr's old son, and that I would need to pay for a second rm for him. 'This is our policy. No exceptions. Had he still been 16, he could have slept on a cot, but now it's too late, she smirked. I said, Hmmm, I think he just got younger then. He is now 16!" to which they angrily responded, "We require a passport from each of you. It is there that we will learn his real age, so you cannot fool us." I wanted to walk out then, and find another vineyard hotel- there were openings throughout Stellenbosch - but I had pre-paid for the one room already. The mean staffers disappeared behind closed doors to discuss. Then returned to say, they would "bend the rules" and allow me to check him into his own room at 4pm making him eligible for the walk-in rate. I laughed and said, "Wow, thanks" and just gave up and handed them my credit card. I resented the entire stay after that. After all the fuss and bad feelings, I went to check out the next day and they had comped the second room, but it was too late to like the place.

4 star hotel at best
View, pool, close to CT
Was pleasant except for no staff at the pool so if you wanted a drink you had to go find someone. Aircon in room was not working and staff said it a problem but can't fix it. I would definitely not recommend Asara

Hotel is nice with good pool area and restaurants are fine. Staff at pool are non-existant so cannot get drinks. The aircon in the rooms kept on breaking down and when we informed the staff they said they know it is a problem. We couldn't sleep at night due to room being so hot. I definitely will not return and would not recommend unless individual aircon units are installed in each room as the current conditions are not of a 5-star hotel!
