Sitting on the stoep at Pontac for sundowners is a great idea. Be sure to ask for a slice of lemon or lime in your gin and tonic and at times be prepared to get up and ask for service. Staff were friendly. A great dissappointment was that no dinner is served and although the Cattle Baron is on the...

Phoned Pontac Manor to inquire about availability for 3 double rooms for 3 nights. No small booking. After the a long wait before the phone was answered someone answered without greeting, just said HI, she implied twice that I was someone who I am not and then realized that I wanted to make a booking. Screaming as they walked looking...

It's perfectly located, the rooms and bathrooms are wonderfully big and the bed was very comfortable. We were sad to only be there for one night as we would have loved to have spent time in the garden or on the patio.

Very large room. Lovely, in an old colonial style. Some of it in need of an upgrade. Pleasant people. Woken very early by something running across the roof, which could only have been a baboon! (Better than being woken by other guests!) Breakfast decidedly average.

The hotel has a lot of atmosphere and history. Unfortunately that is where it ends. The hotel is in need of a serious revamp.

Nice hotel with colonial style close to the main street in Paarl and a amazing restaurant detached to the hotel, good breakfast and big and comfortable rooms. They have to invest in the maintance of rooms and pool to be excelent and improve the Wi-Fi connection.

First there was no record of our booking via bookings.com, staff said this was because we made the booking online on our day of arrival and bookings.com only shows the following day. 2 No towels in the rooms (we booked 2 rooms), and when they were delivered, they were rather worn. 3 No milk at the tea/coffee station - either...

Two safe boxes in room - one not attached to anything the other would not close! To be fair after complaints they installed a third safe next day. Many others in my party also could not close safe as housekeeper had all the keys and was not due back for 48 hours?? There is wifi in the main building but...

Pretty on the outside... only ! Very over priced. Got a family room for 4 with only 3 beds. No hot water for every body in the shower. Broken lamps. And the breakfast !!!! Stale croissants and scones. No home made jam (like advertised !) No varieties of fresh breads ( like advertised !) No "fresh" fruits, just old ones....
