The Devon Valley Hotel is country comfort with a touch of intimacy. The cedar wood-accentuated main building lies comfortably against a low hill outside Stellenbosch with a bright terrace fronting the reception, dining room and tasting area. The views to the valley stretching across to the Helderberg are long and lovely. This is boutique hotel country.It’s a small hotel and has a small winery, intimate and friendly.There are a variety of menus, from an informal lunch menu on the terrace with mains and platters, while the Flavours restaurant, according to the hotel, focuses on bold flavours; celebrating classic dishes with a difference and fresh, clean tastes. The menu is fairly broad with fish, duck, risotto rack of lamb and pork belly among the mains to choose from. The Sunday lunch buffet is popular and booking well ahead is essential.
