I stayed here whilst attending a conference at the Stellenbosch wine estate. I was in the room in the old Victorian part of the building at the edge surrounded by terrace and views out. Some nice antique and historic touches.
I did stay there in winter so at night the room was cold but they provided a heater which i put next to the bed and the room quickly warmed up. Being British a bit of cold doesn't bother me and the charm of the room definitely outweighed any desire to be in a warm airtight modern box!
Ester, who runs it was really helpful and it was easy for me to get hold of things like borrowing an iron, and getting a bacon sarnie to go due to early shuttle bus pick up and she also helped us (there were a number of delegates staying there) organise shuttles to and from the airport and for nights out in town.
There was hot water, a good strong shower. From what I recall the handsoap at the sink was missing, and the floor was glacial (a good wakeup!) but other than those minor things, a comfortable, value for money stay.
