With its central location close to the shops, restaurant and bars, the guest house was the perfect starting point to discover the nice town of Stellenbosch. The room was very nice, clean and with a picturesque view at the courtyard with its lemon tree. The biggest plus of our stay was the very friendly and helpful staff. They were always...

This guesthouse is across the road from an old picturesque church with a bell tower that chimes on the hour and half hour all night. If you are a light sleeper this could be a draw-back but reception kindly provided ear plugs. In the end I did not find it too disruptive and rooms on the inside away from the...

This was my first experience of staying in a guest house as a seasoned traveller for both business and leisure. From the moment I booked my accommodation I received a personal email from Maryanne welcoming me to the property. Upon arrival my room was immaculate and my stay was wonderful, with every evening a turn down service provided to include...

This is a well located large mansion with only 6 rooms but each has a balcony or two and multiple common areas for lots of privacy space and gracious living across from 'the church' and village museum. It is just around the corner to top rated restaurants. Breakfasts are complete affairs with plenty of options and gracious old school service....

As always a very pleasant stay at De Hoek. Warm welcome from Ilsa & Mariaan and delicious breakfast - definitely a favourite in Stellenbosch! Church Bells in Room 5 were definitely more distant, but I missed having a bath!

Maryanne was a wonderful hostess. We arrived early evening with out a set plan for the next day. She quickly helped us find a wonderful driver for our wine tour. She recommended a great restaurant very close to B&B. Our room was beautiful with all the comforts of home and more. We had a private patio off from our room...

After three weeks in South Africa and various accommodations "De Hoek Manor" excelled and gave us a wonderful taste of South Africa and more so about South Africans. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. I wanted to stay more time. Breakfast excellent and the staff great and attentive. Five stars with no negatives. Best value for money.

We made this the last stay on our 2 week trip around the Western Cape. It was simply the best hotel service we received anywhere at any price (and we had some far more expensive nights). Small, personal, helpful. I can't praise them too highly.

Perfect if you want to discover Stellenbosch by foot - located in the city centre right next to the Museum of Stellenbosch. The hostess was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious and freshly made. Due to its age, the house is clairaudient.
