LANZERAC MANOR & WINERY (Stellenbosch - Cape Winelands)

Insert picture here.

Seated on a 300 year old, 155 hectare country estate, prevails one of the region's most distinguished examples of Cape Dutch Architecture, maintaining the elegant atmosphere of a gracious age.

As a member of one of the Gatsby International Hotels, we understand that exclusivity is the key to an unforgetable stay.

For this reason, we limit accommodation to 48 spacious rooms, including 5 Junior Suites, the luxurious Royal Pool Suite with it's own private swimming pool and the Presidential Suite. All rooms and suites open out onto private patios overlooking lush vineyards, landscaped gardens and the majestic Helderberg mountains.

With three hundred years behind her and over thirty of those spent as a hotel, it can safely be said that Lanzerac has established a reputation as one of the best known and best loved hotels in the country. In fact in 1975 she appeared in a prestigious Thomas Cook publication as one of the top 300 hotels in the world and "by far the prettiest in South Africa".

But there was a grey time in her life - after David Rawdon sold in 1988 Lanzerac looked set to join the brassy big time set with talk of timeshare and multi-million renovations. But luckily for lovers of the real Lanzerac legend it was not to be. In 1990 Christo Wiese, businessman, wine lover, ex-Matie, saved her in the nick of time "because I wanted a wine farm".

With Steve and Nicky Fitzgerald of Halcyon Hotels, Wiese has invested just enough to restore Lanzerac to the fine, simple style to which she is accustomed, but the oak trees provide the same shade and the kitchens the same comfort.
