I have stayed at Bonne Esperance a few times and I am never disappointed. Staff are friendly and helpful, there is off-street parking, breakfasts are great and the rooms are comfortable. If I have any problems, they are attended to without delay.

I have stayed in Stellenbosch on many different occasions for business - Bonne Esperance trumps them all! I have stayed with them twice, both times enjoyed tremendously (and the only reason I didn't stay there on the other occasions was that they are so popular they are always full). Bon Esperance is always my first choice. The rooms are large...

A friendly reception, beautiful rooms and walking distance to everything in Stellenbosch. This guesthouse has everything plus a really good breakfast. Business or pleasure - I have stayed here for both. A great guesthouse!

This is my accommodation of choice when visiting Stellenbosch. All the staff are very pleasant. Room was upgraded which was an unexpected surprise. Room had all the comforts on a chilly winter evening. Location is absolutely perfect for good restaurants in the town. All in all a most pleasant stay and I hope to visit again soon.

I stayed for one night on 6 June 2016. This establishment is really recommended. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was superb. I stayed in the loft room number 7. The breakfast is buffet and has a menu for cooked items. I ordered French toast, camenbert and caramelised onions. An absolute taste sensation.

An elegant and hospitable guest house, with friendly and helpful service. The warm crackling fire in the dining room and the delicious array of breakfast dishes gets one off to a good start for the day, especially on a cold and rainy morning

It was a very pleasant stay in this small but very nice bed&breakfast hotel. The Bonne Esperance is well located in the nice city of Stellenbosch. All restaurants, the botanic garden, etc are reachable by walking. The breakfast was very good, as good as the service and the room. The very kind staff allways had good ideas what to do...
