I loved the facility, the treatment and the food. Absolutely fantastic. Also have to add that I have a personal issue with waitering etiquette in general and can state that your staff are FABULOUS in this! Will definitely stay again and recommend it.

Gerlan and the rest of the staff made us feel truly special and welcome. Excellent facilities throughout matched by the beautiful surroundings. The morning view of the mountain I’ll remember for a long time to come.

About
Description
Here at Digteby Estate in Vlottenburg, a residential area in Stellenbosch, a passion for classic luxury with a contemporary flavour is fused with a unique winelands location. The prizewinning architect Hein More Visser restored the old manor house brilliantly. The initial design and dimensions of the building were retained and the original walls, roof beams, door-frames, sash windows and solid kiaat doors revive a bygone era. In addition, the spacious farm house with its typical elements from the late Herbert Baker era gained a few magnificent rooms in the large roof area. There are seven en suite bedrooms in this double-story Luxury Country House. Each window offers an unobstructed view of the blue Boland Mountains. A stay in the Wild Mushroom, a uniquely South African guest house, is a visual delight and sensory experience in an exclusive, private environment. Less
