        Nice smell!”

        It is a beautiful hotel with a marvellous setting. Breakfast is wonderful. The only thing we found a bit disappointing was the restaurant which did not match with the rest of the hotel in a negative way. There was something that we particulary liked, it is the smell of the rooms.

        Wonderful place but front desk staff can use some additional training ”

        The place is very well situated with great views of the mountains and the nearby lake. It is defitely a good value for money if you choose the cheaper room options. The only negative aspect of our trip was the leaking in the bathroom, which spread to the bedroom. We raised the issue with the front office staff, but they treated it like it was somehow our fault and were very unsympathetic to the problem. Only when we got to speak to the duty manager did we manage to be reassigned to a new room. Some training should be given to the front staff to treat their guest with a little more respect.

        Excellent service. Elegant rural style serring. Second floor room with the lake view is breathtaking. Restaurant La mise en place is first rate. Food is delicious. Try one of the wine from the estate, Cape Fusion or Bell Tower for instance. Make a stop at the Gin bar and try the gin tasting, an absolute must!

        The perfect place to be! Breathtaking view of the vineyards, delicious food, it's a magical place! Got an upgrade to a deluxe room with mountains and vineyards view, this was the cherry on top of the cake. They can however improve on the warmth side of welcoming guests.

        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Asara. The pictures truly don’t do it justice. We have high expectations for all hotels we stay at and we were not disappointed. The staff were so accommodating with every request and would also just take initiatives to make us more comfortable. The baby purées delivered x2 daily from the chef were so greatly appreciated!

        Affordable luxury”

        The photos make this place look big, brash and commercial. However, the clever layout and friendliness of the staff make it feel more like a small luxury hotel. We were fortunate to have one of the rooms with a balcony overlooking the lake - thoroughly recommended for its spaciousness and fantastic view. The breakfast room and Mise en Place restaurant are right at the water's edge which adds to the dining experience. Breakfasts were copious and delicious. In the evening we dined at Mise en Place and both times went for the T-bone steak - this is a meal for two, perfectly cooked and comes with a wide choice of potato/salad/vegetable sides. We couldn't manage starters or desserts! This is a working vineyard and winery and so a wine-tasting is a must. Additionally, you are free to walk around the vineyards (taking care to avoid any working machinery) and admire the views across to the nearby mountain ranges. Off-season, Asara is quiet, very pleasant and exceeded our expectations.

We had dinner at their main restaurant & it was delicious, alcohol at the bar is extremely reasonably priced, the deli has great dessert & the staff is extremely friendly. Went wine tasting as well which was quite nice. We had a lovely stay at this wine estate & only wished we had stayed longer. I also got a in-room massage & the lady who came was really good. I would highly recommend doing that. And of course their wines are delicious!

        This is a luxurious hotel with stunning views. The room was large and comfortable with a huge balcony. I had a problem with the room service, but the manager quickly fixed it. Also, the drain in the shower wasn't working properly and the bathroom flooded. Other than that, it was a great stay. It was the best breakfast I had on the entire trip. I would stay here again.

        Slightly Disappointed ”

        We arrived on the evening of our wedding looking forward to relaxation after an exhausting weekend of celebrations. The porter that greeted me at the car and helped us to our room was absolutely amazing and we were excited for what was to come. Unfortunately that was the end of the good service. We were told the hotel was still quiet but when asked for an upgrade on our wedding night we were told there are no suites. This would have been extra special but is still understandable. We then went to the room and tried to order a pizza and got told we would be charged R100 to deliver to the room (less than 100m away from the restaurant) so I ended up collecting it myself. I had a couples massage booked for 11am at the Spa but I was told I had to checkout before then and leave my bags at reception instead of being allowed to go back to the room for a quick shower afterwards. This baffled me as the resort was still empty and there would have been plenty of time for the room to be cleaned. I have to commend the hotel on an exceptional breakfast and breathtaking views. Our waiter was also very helpful and friendly. Not a bad overall experience but not quite the 5 star exceptional wedding night experience I was hoping for. Instead we were rushed out and left feeling slightly disappointed after having very high expectations.

        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!!
