The Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa

Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is steeped in history, but the natural evolution that gradually transformed it from a modest Cape Dutch-style farmstead dating back to the 1700s into the elegant four-star boutique hotel of today has preserved the rich heritage of this property. Guests driving onto the grounds immediately notice the majestic, towering oaks that have silently stood their ground for generations.

The Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa was established in November 1994. David Gant, from the neighbouring Lourensford Estate, decided to develop the Erinvale property into a golfing residential estate. The land where the hotel stands was sold separately to Peter Baragwanath, who subsequently developed the existing building into the hotel.

The hotel opened its doors on 1 May 1995. It has always been privately owned and was bought by Xavier McAuliffe, an Irishman who purchased the hotel from Mr Baragwanath in June 1999. The hotel was sold by Mr McAuliffe to Louis Group Hotels, Spas & Vineyards in November 2007.

Louis Group Hotels, Spas & Vineyards owns a collection of hotels, namely The Devon Valley Hotel in Stellenbosch and surrounding Sylvanvale Vineyards, The Fairways on the Bay and Place on the Bay, both in Camps Bay.

The Erinvale Manor House has been restored - the original structure dates back to the 1700s. The only part of the original house that can be identified is the chimney, which used to be part of the kitchen. The L-shaped thatched rooms were constructed within the footprint of the original stables and the Georgian-styled block was built within the footprint of the original stable barn.
