From a fresh, beautiful cup for every breakfast coffee to lavender sprigs on the bedspread, Batavia is the boutiquest of boutique hotels, with cheerful service and a perfect attention to detail. The breakfasts are very fine and ample. The plunging pool is a little small but - no joke intended - that's a small thing.

Really enjoyed our three night stay at the Batavia. Staff were friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and very good and the breakfasts were excellent. The hotel is in a very convenient location, easy to find when first arriving and only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town and its amenities. Only downside was a noisy...

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of our 3-week trip around SA. Lovely friendly welcome on arrival from Martina and Brandon. Our room wasn't quite ready so we enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine in the small courtyard overlooking the pool. Our room (number 8) was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is within close walking distance of a...

We stayed her for our last night in Stellenbosch before travelling back to UK, stopping for lunch at Avontur vineyard so only 30 mins from airport, in time for late afternoon flight home. Very friendly and attentive staff, always willing to help. Lovely breakfast in a chic setting.

My partner and I stayed in the Batavia for two nights. We loved the vibe of the place - it's kind of like a quirky, upmarket B&B. When we arrived we were greeted by the woman on the desk who was very friendly and gave us a glass of wine and face towels (it was a very hot day!). This...

The Batavia is one of the best hotels I have been in. As a boutique hotel it is much more personal than the bigger chain hotels. The service was first class and the staff were second to none. The room we had was very tastefully decorated and overlooked the pool. It had bath and walk in shower and mini bar....

This Hotel is a Gem situated near the town and restaurants. We experienced a warm welcome with glass of wine and had a beautiful room with every comfort one could wish for. Staff were helpful and the breakfast delicious. The pool, although tiny, is a worthwhile extra.

Quiet and tranquil, comfortable. I enjoyed the environment very much. I was able to spend hours at night working without any noise disturbances. The breakfast was great, oh the ever fresh fruits. Overall, the hotel can be accommodating to business person and to a whole family on leisure.

This is a gorgeous, comfortable and well located hotel within walking distance of the heart of the town. Room 5 was such a relaxing and well decorated room. Loved it. A friendly welcome, great breakfast and added extras such as little cakes and biscuits to have whilst you chill out in the afternoon are a real bonus. Secure parking too....
