A small guest house / hotel with enormous rooms. Our room was an good size and very comfortable. The bathroom was as big as my bedroom back home. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent. Ideally located to walk into town in the evening.

Of the 5 different hotels/ Guest Houses myself and my partner stayed in during our recent trip to South Africa this was by a mile the worst. Its described as a Boutique hotel of which I have stayed in many and this in my opinion is not "Boutique" The room we were allocated was small/ dark and long overdue an...

This lovely hotel is perfect for exploring stellenbosch. It is within safe walking distance of the many shops and restaurants but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing at night. The rooms are quaint with slightly mismatched furniture but this adds to the homely feel of the hotel. The staff are all excellent and always helpful. Returning after a...

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. It is on a quiet tree lined avenue within easy walking distance of Dorp Street, Church Street and the rest of the town. Our spacious room had good quiet AC and wifi. Breakfast under the trees by the pool was very nice. There needs to be more loungers by the...

Our room had a good view over the garden and the mountains. Everything in the room was clean and well maintained. Everything worked and the wifi was fast and free.

This hotel was booked by my travel agent for two nights on our tour of the Garden Route. Having previously read comments on Trip Advisor, we were looking forward to our stay. We were underwhelmed by our experience. The town is a delight on a sunny day and ideal for touring vineyards (Surely one tour is enough?) But there was...
