B&B like hotel in Stellenbosch

Posted Jan 10, 2017
Overall a great stay. The hotel is nicely located in the center of town. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is above average for hotels, but not as outstanding as other locations in region -- there are some amazing restaurants at the vineyards. (eat on the veranda if you can...). They have a nice breakfast spread including an "hot" order and the eggs Benedict were solid!! Only down side was that the room was a bit small...but OK for boutique hotel.

Everything You Could Want

Pros: The staff were great.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: In the heart of town with shopping, restaurants and sport facility all close bye.
Location on the nicest street in the heart of town. The staff were attentive, helpful, and had a smile on their face. Breakfast was special with a personal touch. Our room was very comfortable.

Small boutique hotel in heart of town, great breakfast choice, friendly and helpful staff, located in a main street - close to shopping, restaurants and cafes. On site restaurant - top food, great menu. Only con room was a tad small.

Hidden gem in Stellenbosch

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Excellent location - walk to all major sites in Stellenbosch and around the Univeristy. Perfectly situated for doing the vineyards of both Sellenbosch and Franschhoek by car. Many good restaurants out the front door - but don't need to wonder far when Helena's is inside this boutique inn. I highly recommend it. An easy relatively short drive from Cape Town.

Coopmanhuijs has top notch staff that always went above and beyond! The housekeeping staff kept our room immaculate. The charming hotel also had a comfortable bed and provided a delicious breakfast every morning and were super accommodating to all our our requests. I would highly recommend to anyone. It's a small hotel with a great location, close to wonderful restaurants and wineries.

Centrally located. Very helpful, pleasant staff

Historic building but it is staff attitude and team work that reallly make the atmosphere here. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble Old character of building has necessitated a lay out which makes some ground floor potentiallly noisy. Very convenient location.

Worth Every Penny

Posted Dec 30, 2015
You cannot go to Stellenbosch and not stay at the stunning historic Coomanhuijs Boutique Hotel. Once the staff realised we were guests and not riffraff off the street (we had been traveling a few hours and I would assume looked a little less like their usual guests), the staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. They were also exceptionally accommodating of our additional guest - thank you! We were shown to our room, which was exceptional! It was breathtakingly beautiful! The views were stunning, the room was clean, crisp and felt like home. I'd be back there in a heart beat. The staff were outstanding! They gave us the best service we've had - thank you! The very busy inhouse restaurant reserved a stunning outdoor table for us. The food and wine was stunning! We'll be back soon!

Great location and excellent breakfast included. Only tip I'd give would be not to take a room on the ground floor as you can get spillover noise from the service areas in the morning.
