This place was such boutique luxury! We loved it there. The spa is fabulous, the rooms were so comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant was so delicious we probably put on 3kg a day. And the service was so friendly, kind and welcoming. I will be recommending to everyone to stay here. We were on our honeymoon and it was...

My fiance and I love the Majeka House Hotel in Stellenbosch! It is walking distance away from Stellenbosch, but just far enough to be away from all the noise in town. I can really recommend to take a walk or run around the hotel as the landscape around the hotel is really beautiful. Breakfast was perfect - they have everything...

Situated just outside Stelllenbosch city center in a calm and nice surrounding Majeka House offers a very nice stay. We had a beautiful room with semi-private nice pool. The staff was very welcoming, helpful and attentive. Breakfast was good and so was the food in the restaurant. This is a place we very much would like to return to.

A group of Travel Agents were privileged to stay a complementary night at Majeka House. Great location, clean and spacious rooms, quiet and tranquil.

This is our second time staying, although the first was just for a night and too quick. We came back and really enjoyed it, from the design, to the service, rooms, spa and food. The heated indoor pool makes it worth a swim even if it's not the heat of summer. Dinner is also very good, although slightly limited menu....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
