Bonne Esperance is a place to stay. Centrally located to "downtown" Stellenbosch (hihihi...), it is at walking distance to great restaurants and bars. Charming terrace and garden view. And not to forget the super friendly staff, serving breakfast and, of course, the always helpful ladies and gentleman at reception. Would always come back.

Very new and clean room, spacious and bright. Our room was located across the street from the 'main' building. A small pool, wich we did not use, but very convenient. Only thing that could be provided for this price would be breakfast! Isn't really the cheapest room for just one night. But in walking distance from Stellenbosch town, wich has...

My cousin and I attended an event at Warwick wine farm, and we needed a place to stay for one night in Stellenbosch. Bonne Esperance came up on a suggested list of B&Bs and I could not have asked for better accommodation! We stayed in the self-catering flatlets which were spacious, beautiful decorated and equipped with everything we needed. Overall,...

Truly one of the nicest places we have stayed. Tastefully decorated, kind and cheerful staff, and a lovely pool area. Great location, excellent breakfast. The whole place feels thoughtful and warm. And exceptional value for money. You couldn't ask for anything more.

Having stayed in a good but faceless hotel in Cape Town, we were very pleased with our decision to switch from a large winery hotel near Stellenbosch to this superb guesthouse right in the centre. The photos do it justice - it really is quite idyllic and convenient walking distance to lots of good restaurants. Our rooms had patios next...

We stayed there for one night only and would have loved to stay longer. Stellenbosh is a lovely small town surrounded by mountains and vine fields. I would suggest 2 nights in this city as there is plenty to visit around. Bonne Esperance is a stunning house 5min walk from the centre where you can find many restaurants and bars....
