Guestbook Reviews

The house offers elegant five-star amenities and service. The service was warm and friendly at all times, and dinners on the veranda a memorable experience. We recommend to stay here for a few days, relax by the pool, do the river walk, enjoy the setting!

Press reviews

Enchanting country retreat - Jun 2010

There’s only one way in and out of the hidden valley that is home to utterly secluded Grand Dédale, situated at the foot of the dramatic Bainskloof Pass in the Wellington wine region. This stylishly renovated Cape Dutch manor house embraces grand interiors and delicate Asian and European touches, bringing a subtle richness to the design and furnishings.
