My family enjoyed our 3 night stay (2 kids aged 5 and 9, parents and grandparents). The hotel is set in lovely grounds by the river and the staff are friendly. The wine tasting was fun (good wine) and the Eagle Encounters was a hit with the kids. We ate well at each of the restaurants. The hotel is easy access from Cape Town (you can even come by train) and close to Stellenbosch - a beautiful old university town.
Amazing country house with an equally as amazing breakfast! Only thing to be aware of is its 3-4km out of the town and the kitchen closes at 4pm, so don't get too carried away with those wine tastings! There are no taxis in town but there are certain restaurants that offer a pick up and drop off service and Rickety Bridge provide this info in the rooms
We had a wonderful experience during our 3 week stay at The Lord Charles! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. The facilities were user friendly and comfortable. The restaurant and service was excellent and the food was at a high standard! Great staff and chef! It was very sad to leave as we felt like family. We will certainly be back there next year!
Well done and thanks to all at The Lord Charles :)
