Beautiful boutique hotel in the centre of Stellenbosch, yet quietly located to allow you to fully relax. Rooms were well decorated and really comfortable. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Short walk to main street with all its restaurants and cafes. Two nice pools with lots of space for lounging. Highly recommend if you are in Stellenbosch for a...

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. It is on a quiet tree lined avenue within easy walking distance of Dorp Street, Church Street and the rest of the town. Our spacious room had good quiet AC and wifi. Breakfast under the trees by the pool was very nice. There needs to be more loungers by the...

Our room had a good view over the garden and the mountains. Everything in the room was clean and well maintained. Everything worked and the wifi was fast and free. We had a big double bed, the area was very quiet and sleep quality was excellent. There was a massive balcony area attached to our room with sofas looking over...

This hotel was booked by my travel agent for two nights on our tour of the Garden Route. Having previously read comments on Trip Advisor, we were looking forward to our stay. We were underwhelmed by our experience. The town is a delight on a sunny day and ideal for touring vineyards (Surely one tour is enough?) But there was...

So nice, cosy and beautiful place to stay in Stellenbosch. We spent 5 days and truly enjoyed. Staff was really friendly, smily and helpful. Loved them all! The hotel is in walking distance from the old Stellenbosch center and there's enough parking places. Breakfast was excellent.

This beautiful hotel reminded us of old times. The surroundings are beautiful and so are the rooms. Very romantic. Walking distance to main street. Only had breakfast there and it was very good also. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed our stay here, staff were friendly and good breakfast. Unique style of hotel, with a lot of historic charm. Nice gardens. Wifi was not available in our bedroom, we stayed in the old part of the house which was very noisy at night with road traffic.

This is a very clean nice hotel. It's within walking distance from the town so good location. Overall the hotel is nice. Staff were friendly and helpful but there was just a slight reserve in how they communicated. Stellenbosch is close by and a must visit/stay when travelling this wonderful country. I will definitely return but perhaps not to this...
