Somerset West

Perfect Wedding Hub at the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa

Erinvale Estate Hotel’s charming ground floor suites offer bright blue sky views, honey bees buzzing around tall lavender shrubs and picturesque views through double doors. Tucked in the corner of Somerset West’s prime property, Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is also home to an onsite spa, two restaurants and a wedding venue – just 30 mins from Cape Town. 

Why Erinvale?

It’s the type of hotel that offers guests a variety of services with effortless execution, attracting both day visitors and holiday makers seeking quality and consistency.

The natural interiors reflect the lush outdoors, with shades of green and gold warming up each room, while passageways and feature walls display beautiful local art.

Having recently attended the Camphor launch we stayed the night to explore the hotel a little more…

Sweet Suite

Our ground-floor suite at Erinvale Hotel was picture perfect. With Swiss doors (as we call them) that open vertically or horizontally; creating beautiful moving pictures of the outside world. A discrete television, local art, large cupboards and en suite bathroom, one could easily use this as a home base for various celebrations on and off the property.

Tip: We found the pillows to be a bit too soft. Check with housekeeping if you need to change them out for firmer ones.

Reliable Excellence

Thoroughly enjoying our Thai green curry risotto for dinner; a huge portion with spice tingling our heart while the crackling fire warmed our bodies. The in-house restaurant is cosy and comfortable, offering delicious local dishes surround by proudly South African textures, flowers and art.

I Do

Image this:

  • Dinner at the respected Stephen’s on a Thursday night.
  • Pre-wedding dinner in the in-house restaurant on Friday night.
  • Getting ready in the suites before heading out for the special occasion on a Saturday. 
  • A delicious Sunday morning breakfast for the morning after.
  • Spa for any time that one feels the need to be pampered – bride or no bride.

The sophisticated Camphor venue is particularly useful during cooler months by providing wintery warmth for weddings or celebrations for up to 100 guests with Erinvale offering an all-inclusive venue hire package that includes tables, chairs, linen, cutlery, crockery and waiting staff.

The spa on site is also being renovated currently to align in the recent modernisation of the hotel. It’ll certainly be high on my list of accommodations for the area moving forward.

Erinvale is the David amongst the Goliaths of the neighbouring wine estates, but we felt it shone through the decor, service, delicious food and comfortable large suites. A true hidden gem.
