I spent one night here, and it was perfect. My room was quiet, and had every amenity one might need. Breakfast was excellent, not least Benita's home-made wheat-free muffins. Benita was accommodating also when I had to cancel one night at very short notice. Top marks!

Dear Queen Bee Marketing what an honour to have hosted you. I am glad that you liked your stay and my staff is making us proud by making sure that the rooms are in tip top shape for our guests. I am glad that you enjoyed and appreciated our offerings. We were raised that to never allow your guest to leave on an empty stomach - trying to fulfill that as part of our heritage of our village. Both Simonsberg and Groot Drakenstein mountain views are awesome indeed. Especially now that Boschendal and Banhoek Conservancy added the walking, running and cycling paths as well - a treasure indeed. God bless and looking forward to your next visit to the valley. Benita

Benita and her team are lovely people and were very accommodating with our requests (a late check-in, a very early breakfast, 2 dietary requirements...). Benita also bakes great cakes! Thank you very much for our enjoyable stay!

I must say I always enjoy coming to Paarl, specifically Pniel. The view is magnificent and so tranquil.Looking at the mountains from the breakfast area at Lumleys just adds to the mood. So calm and relaxing.

The service and hospitality was great and the rooms very beautiful.
