Lovely peaceful setting close Stellenbosch and surrounding wine farms. Warm friendly atmosphere and the breakfast menu was delightful. Cottages were spacious and well appointed including a mini honesty bar, very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to those wanting to get and just relax.

Wife and I stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding nearby. The grounds were very quaint and peaceful. Location is ok, as it was a short drive into Stellenbosch and easy to get to a few wineries in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. They provide a continental style breakfast...

I booked and paid down payment through booking.com during a time when all accommodation in the area was fully booked. I was completely shocked when I arrived to find the facility sitting right by the busy bypass road and no gates or fence to protect the property. I have visited and worked in South Africa extensively over the past ten...

Situated near both Stellenbosch and Franschoek, this slightly older motel style hideaway is very well maintained. Our suite featured a second floor with two single beds; ideal for the kids. I believe there are just six suites. Parking was close, the grounds were well maintained, and the staff were super friendly. The breakfast provided as part of the fee was...

nice house, nice location, somewhat outside town, however with friendly and helpful staf. The rooms are clean and fit for purpose. It is very convenient for pass-trough travellers. Breakfast is very good.

We had the first night a little room with a 1,40 m bed for a couple ! We changed the next day because of that and because of the road (20 meters from our room) with it's 200 cars passing from 6.00 AM to 7.00 AM ! The ambiance with the owners was terrible : not a world from them...

A lovely guesthouse with superb staff, a lovely setting and the cottages on the other side of the road, although annoying to drag your bags too have a spectaular view of the lake. We booked about 8 rooms there for a friends wedding nearby and it lived up to expectations. Would definitely recommend.

We had very bad service at check out by Karen and she let us pay two times. She also dont like other black people. My girlfriend is black and she treated her very badly. She let us feel so bad we just wanted to get away from there.
