is located in the Boschendal area of the Cape Winelands in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Set in a broad agricultural valley at the heart of the winelands, Babylonstoren is a lovely Cape Dutch farmstead best known for its a fine dining restaurant and fabulous historic gardens, but which also offers some very pleasant guest accommodation.

The estate is centred on an historic farm which dates all the way back to 1690 and has some of the best preserved and beautiful gardens in the Cape. Various converted farm buildings on the estate contain the well known fine dining Babel Restaurant, The Conservatory Cafe for light lunches and snacks, an extensive Wine Tasting Room with cellar tours, a really very high quality Farm Shop, a lovely Bakery and an extensive spa and gym. Hotel residents also have access to a large swimming pool. There is also a large dam for kayaking.

Guest accommodation is in a range of different rooms and cottages across the estate ...

Manor House Suite : 5 : This fabulous Cape Dutch house dates back to 1777 and accommodate up to ten guests five bedrooms, either booked as individual rooms or as a whole house.

Farmhouse Suite : 9 : Comfortable one bedroom suites in the main farmhouse for two adults.

One Bedroom Cottage : 3 : Lovely and authentic detached Cape Dutch cottages for two guests.

Two Bedroom Cottage : 4 : More lovely detached Cape Dutch cottages, this time with two bedrooms for up to four guests.

The main potential downsides at Babylonstoren are the main road location, the relatively high prices and the fact that the property is open to non-residents.
