We had a family function to attend in Cape Town in the Stellenbosch area.

The Klein Akkerdraai was recommended as being reasonably priced with good food and comfortable accommodation.

It fitted the bill perfectly and we took the outside cottage as we would be coming home to bed quite late.

The room was well equipped and the landlord was accommodating by placing a bed in the lounge for my daughter at no extra charge.

It is very convenient to Stellenbosch and the wine farms and is way from the traffic and noise situated on a strawberry and wine farm.

The breakfast was very good and home prepared with whatever we wanted.

We will definitely go back for short stays in the area.

Ihad the pleasure of staying in this accommodation recently and was very impressed with the location, style and quality of the place. It is very tastefully furnished with many small touches in the room - fresh flowers, strawberries and amenities that really make a difference. It is in a very peaceful location but there are two vineyards within 5 minutes walk ( or should I say staggering?) distance and Klein Akkerdraai is perfectly located for vineyard hopping. There are also some great restaurants nearby - less than 5 minutes drive where the meals are also excellently priced and the quality is outstanding. Having breakfast in the small courtyard with home made preserves - just beautiful. This place is really. beautiful

Klein Akkerdraai Lodge is in a Beautiful setting. There are many wine farms and a fabulous Farmers market close by. The peace and tranquility is fantastic. Our double bed was a bit squeaky and bouncy, but otherwise the room was comfortable. A fan would have been a great addition

Our family stayed at Klein Akkerdraai during December 2014 for 4 nights. We occupied the three guest bedrooms, as well as the flat. There was a three-year old, as well as two teenagers. We all enjoyed our stay, and absolutely loved it!

The lodge is surrounded by wine estates, there is lots of oak trees and a beautiful garden. It is ideally situated to use as base for day-trips. The boys could play cricket outside when we returned late afternoon, while the fires were lit. We enjoyed the evenings, and barbequed every evening.

The rooms are spacious and well maintained. A delicious breakfast is prepared every morning, starting with fresh fruit salad. Eggs were made to everyones preferance.

The staff members are wonderful, and look after every request. They make sure guests have a relaxing stay.

When you page through their guestbook, the comments all boil down to "Thanks for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed it and will be back".

We loved our stay and will definitely stay at Klein Akkerdraai again. Thanks for the warm hospitality!

My family of 8 stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our South African adventure, after lovely stays in both Kruger and St. Lucia. We chose this Lodge because it is part of a holding that was once owned by my wife's family. Lesson 1: Family ties are not reason enough to select the 78th (of 101) ranked lodge in Stellenbosch!

At first glance it is a very quaint 18th century property, surrounded by 200 year old oak trees with a beautiful mountain backdrop. The Lodge building was originally the farm's stables. Perhaps that's Lesson 2: Don't book a party of 8 in a stable.

While we expected it to be cold in Cape Town and we knew there would be no central heating system, we did expect there to be sufficient fire places and blankets…but there were neither. My daughters were even scolded for turning on the oil heater in their bedroom.

In fact, the master bedroom was so chilly one night that a mouse crawled under my pillow and bit my finger. After lots of screaming and giggling, my wife and I caught the mouse in a trash bin and tossed it outside.

The decor was authentic 18th/19th century furniture. Nice to look at, but the kids were scolded multiple times for the way we used the furniture. BTW, they were behaving like kids, not hooligans.

One of my biggest surprises was that we could not purchase bottled water, sodas or alcohol at the Lodge.

All in all, there was nothing accommodating about the lodge…you literally got a bed and a breakfast.
