We had a night away from our two young kids while visiting family in Stellenbosch. Couldn't have chosen a better place. 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...

- They get the basics right: huge spacious rooms with powerful showers and comfortable beds. A nice touch is a big bathtub in the room, where I could relax with a glass of wine and watch TV. - Decent breakfast with a few choices and lots of great coffee - Lots of nice touches such as complimentary sherry, cake and...

Batavia Boutique Hotel is a great place to base your Stellenbosch exploration. The friendly and helpful team make you feel welcome. 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...

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...

We stayed in the Batavia Boutique hotel for two nights in order to do some wine tasting in Stellenbosch. We chose the hotel as it was in a good location adjacent to the town and the reviews on trip advisor were positive. We were welcomed so warmly to the hotel on arrival. The owner came out to the car and...

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...

We chose Batavia out of the multitude of hotels and guest houses in Stellenbosch because of their superior service levels and customer focused attitude, as well as their very central location in Stellenbosch. Rosie and her mom gave us outstanding personal service, even though we only stayed overnight. Breakfast was fresh and personally prepared. We stayed in the Private Studio...

We had the superior room that had a private patio. We had planned to stay one night, but when we saw the room, we decided to stay for two. We were welcomed with glasses of wine and recommendations of things to see. The next day, not only did we have an excellent buffet and warm breakfast, but the owner brought...

The hotel is well located in central Stellenbosch with easy access to routes out the town. It is impeccably run and beautifully decorated. The team on duty go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. This is my second stay at this fantastic hotel. I will definitely go back again.
