KC: What made you decide to stay at CLOUDS ESTATE?

Francois: CLOUDS ESTATE has just been one of those places that I had on my personal bucket list of 5 star hotels in the Cape Winelands that we wanted to experience.

KC: What was your first impression of CLOUDS ESTATE on arrival?

Francois: Location, Location, Location! CLOUDS ESTATE is located on the top of the mountain, with an impressive entrance and beautiful surroundings with clean line architecture.


KC: What was the service like?

Francois: CLOUDS ESTATE staff focused on making us feel at home from the first second we arrived with a welcome drink/ coffee at the patio area overlooking the valley, serving us popcorn when we ordered a DVD in our room the evening and also placing a warm water bottle in our bed as part of the turndown. Small things do make a difference!


KC: Is it child friendly?

Francois: I think that CLOUDS ESTATE is more appropriate for adults or families with children older than 12 years old. 11698502_876465392439551_3551474548900847632_n
