The Devon Valley Hotel

Hidden away in a shady, peaceful corner of the Stellenbosch Winelands lies The Devon Valley Hotel, surrounded by the House of Louis® owned SylvanVale Vineyards. Throughout its history, dating back to 1947, this unique hotel has been frequented by travellers, many of whom come back again and again. The Louis family acquired the property in 2003 and quickly brought the hotel up to its current award-winning standards through renovations, refurbishments and innovative management. The hotel boasts seven versatile conference venues suitable for a variety of corporate and private functions.
