Lovely guest house çlose to town centre

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Guest house is walking distance to Church street, with lots cafes and shops. We had a very clean, large, comfortable room overlooking the garden. Great breakfast. Nice pool, pretty garden. Comfortable guest lounge. Only criticism - mattresses a bit too firm.

Quality accommodation, central location

Posted Feb 17, 2016
Pros: Comfortable room Excellent breakfast Outside garden and pool area Proximity to central Stellenbosch
Cons: Limited car parking is available
Location: Stellenbosch is a lively university town with good shopping and eateries. Try the Town walking tour (11.00am), botanical garden and Babylonsteren.
Stayed here for 3 nights to explore Stellenbosch and surrounding area. Location is great for tripping in and out of downtown Stellenbosch. Our room (7) was large and extremely well equipped as is the public lounge area. Outside the garden is beautifully maintained and the outdoor pool area, although small, is very welcome. Breakfast, served on either the terrace or dining room, is excellent.

The room was very clean. It was decorated in a contemporary style. The breakfast was excellent. The guest house was approx 10 minutes walk to the centre of town (Dorp St).

Wine tasting part 1

Posted Nov 26, 2014 on Hotels
A lovely spot and all that it promised from photos and reviews. Thank you A couple of suggestions, we booked a king bed and received two singles pushed together. Plus the room sockets did not all cope with adapters so charging batteries was restricted. A beautiful garden, a pleasant walk into town for eats.

Lovely guest house surrounded by beautiful gardens. Room was huge and very comfortable and they served a great breakfast on the terrace. Free parking and convenient for walking into town and driving to the local vineyards.
