My choice of place to stay in Stellenbosch! One is always made to feel welcome and the owners Gwen and Johan are friendly, easy-going, helpful and knowledgeable. Attention to detail is important to them and they have a knack of knowing the needs of their guests. Needless to say I'll be back and can highly recommend Aan Dorpstraat Guest House!...

Gwen and Johann are the most perfect hosts that anyone could wish for. They have a fabulous high quality guesthouse in a safe area of Stellenbosch. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed; bedding is of an extremely high standard and there was everything that anyone could possibly require.Breakfast was a real treat, freshly prepared in front of the guests....

We had all too brief a stay at this beautifully appointed guesthouse located in a quiet street just minutes' walk away from the centre of Stellenbosch. The welcome from Gwen and Johan could not have been warmer and the guesthouse offers absolutely everything you could possibly want: clean linen, off-street parking, comfortable rooms with good wifi, aircon, etc and the...

Gwen and Johan are a real comedy act, with hearts the size of buckets. Absolutely nothing is to much trouble, from arranging venues, to booking taxis.. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well maintained, and serviced. Breakfast is freshly cooked in front of you, and very fulfilling. Whilst this is a B&B, it should satisfy the most discerning traveller.

Right when we first arrived after making our way from the airport to Gwen and Johanna's b&b, we were made to feel at home. The room was fabulous and very comfortable. WiFi, air-con, very comfy bed, and good advice about where to eat. Breakfast was fab with delicious fresh fruit and cooked breakfast if you wanted it. Nothing was too...

We cannot think of enough superlatives for this beautiful guest house situated in good part of Stellenbosch - the wonderfully decorated comfortable room we had, with outside deck where we could sit and enjoy the beginning and end of the day to the sweet courtyard with its swimming pool. Gwen and Johan were superb hosts - Johan's breakfasts were memorable,...

An unplanned stay at Aan Dorostraat Guest House following a medical emergency was a wonderful experience in difficult times. Gwen and Johan couldn't have been kinder or more supportive to my family.

Where do I start?! Gwen and Johann are absolute stars. We found ourselves unexpectedly on our way to South Africa and staying at Aan Dorpstraat last week after my father was taken ill whilst on holiday there. Both Gwen and Johann went over and above the usual B&B responsibilities. They helped translate, phone people and moved mum and dad to...

This is my third visit to Aan Dorpstraat Guest House and once again I was not disappointed! This time I stayed in a little tucked away room at the top of the stairs in the front of the guest house - one that is not often available - and I loved it. I felt like I was perched in an...
