Guesthouses run a very close line when they are not quite what they describe, This one is not convenient if you want to experience Stellenbosch or go for walks in the area. The rooms are really small and the bathroom was seriously tight. The shower door did not close properly. I'm sure the owners have tried very hard to make...

Elize is a truly kind and considerate woman and an amazing host, she made sure we had a great time (giving recommendations, helping to book restaurants, driving us when uber didn't work etc) I can't praise her enough. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms are a very good size with great facilities and comfortable beds...

Although the rooms are rather small and the guesthouse is not of a modern type, the great hospitality and friendliness of Elize and her staff made up for a really pleasant stay and this guesthouse to be a perfect place to get around Stellenbosch area. Very relaxing atmosphere. You need a car to get to Stellenbosch centre.

The Guest House is not in the greatest suburb in Stellenbosch. The accommodation does not look anything like the pictures . the outside patio is on on sand next to the driveway. The splash pool is in a little courtyard with no shade. I was very shocked when I walked in and when I asked for a refund as the...

We had an excellent stay in the property. The decoration of the rooms and cleanliness is perfect. It was very pleasant to meet and chat with the lovely owner. Breakfast and parking facilities are also good.

Only 1 channel on tv and wifi didn't work, a lot of people staying and hanging around outside our room but apart from this I can't speak more highly of the staff who were very kind and helpful to us. Just bad timing. Oh and a dog next door barks 4 times every second non stop all night which needs...

I've explained to the couple (my guests) that the women sitting and standing in the garden was waiting for their transport. They attended Women on Farms Project workshops. Some of them overnight at home stays in the same street, unfortunately the pick up point was here at the guest house. I even politely asked the two ladies who slept in...

We stayed the night at Simonsberg after a wedding we attended. The owners were so hospitable and the room was great. We were accommodated with all requests. The breakfast in the morning was more than sufficient and very tasty.

A very nice guest house to stay in as the owners are friendly and accommodating. Nice breakfast with enough choices and well prepared food. Expect smallish rooms in a house on a small cramped stand, parking within fenced stand, but cramped. We didn't feel like to walk in the area as it is not a clean nice area, people urinating...
