Great welcome at reception and even though we were very early we were able to check in quickly - after a welcome cuppa. The hotel is fitted out in an Art Deco style and full of interesting nik naks. Bedroom / bathroom combined was strange at first but ok once we got used to it. Breakfast was continental plus some... More

It was a two minute walk to the heart of Stellenbosch's baras, cafes and restaurants. Beautifully big room with lovely antique furniture. Big comfortable bed gave us our best sleep in a long time. The service from Matilda and... More

As an international visitor to South Africa and Stellenbosch it was also a welcome feeling to be able to step outside my hotel in safety for a walk at night. The little extra touches at Batavia like the weather... More

We had a great off-season stay at Batavia. Jacques was very helpful from the start and had just the right level of assertiveness. Service in general was very attentive. The room (#1 I think) was splendid -- great bed, spacious bathroom with a jacuzzi -- and the decor of the whole place was beautiful and interesting. Also breakfast was wonderful... More

We stayed at Batavia Guesthouse for some serious wine tasting in Stellenbosch. What a gem of a place this is! The staff are marvelous....with inside tips to some special local vintners, exactly what we were looking for. The owner, Matilda, is so very gracious and naturally makes that extra effort to ensure your stay is PERFECT. I cannot recommend Batavia... More
