If you need to spend a night or more in the wine lands around Stellenbosch, whether for business or pleasure, Soverby is the place to stay. It is well situated, just outside Stellenbosch and within easy reach of the airport and all the wonderful wine farms in the area. The welcome is warm, with complementary coffee, wine or port next...

Our second time staying at Soverby, and loved it once again! The attention to detail in the Soverby rooms is such an enjoyment! Not a single thought has been left out. And to top it all, they certainly have got the best breakfast we could find. Absolutely love this little gem!

My family stayed there for 11 nights. We truly enjoyed our time there. Received extremely positive feedback from other guests when we shared experiences. The clientele were very "rustig" and like minded and I can't believe it was coincidence. The guest houses are perfectly located close to Stellenbosch and about 30 minutes from Cape Town. You definitely need a car...

Staying at Soverby was a wonderful experience. Although the guesthouse is located on a busy road, it was rather tranquil on the premises. The guesthouse has two properties opposite to each other. One contains cottages while the other has variations of double rooms. We stayed on the premises with the double rooms, which was in fact formerly a stable. My...

“There's a choice of rooms at the guest house on one side of the room or 3 self-catering cottages over the road based around the dam (small lake for irrigation on the farm). All are great and just ask the team there and they'll advise you what suits you best.”
