The place is beautiful and charming. It's located on a prime position in the center. The room was luxurious and comfortable, with all the necessary goodies.
The staff was friendly, and I would definitely recommend this place.

The architecture of the hotel and the garden is very beautiful. The served breakfast is really delicious, espically the chees. The room is very neat and clean, and they offer free ginger biscuts :). I respected that they trying to save water if the customer is willing to. But, in the last night, the electricity was cut, I don't know if it was for saving energy or not!

Perfectly located in the centre of Stellenbosch this guest house does things really well! I was impressed by the cleanliness of the rooms and quality of the breakfast which is served in a beautifully decorated room. The staff were friendly and efficient and it is obvious they know what they are doing.

the stay was wonderful. The rooms/apartments are really spacious and well decorated. I loved the bed, it was excellent quality and guaranteed a wonderful sleep experience. Bonne Esperance is well situated and one can enjoy a lovely comfortable stroll to the nearest restaurant for your morning breakfast.We will be back!!

Didn't find this BnB very good value for money. Room was small and could have been cleaned better. It was also freezing, no electric blankets or heaters for winters in the Western Cape which are cold!
Tried to use the hot water bottle in the cupboard, landed up burning myself really badly because there was a large leek in the bottle and had boiling water all over my body and my bed.
Not the greatest experience.

Dear gillvg2017

I am sorry to hear that your experience at Bonne Esperance did not live up to your expectations. Every room comes equipped with air-conditioning which can be switched to heat the room and if you had brought your predicament under our attention we could have provided additional heaters. I am sorry that you burned yourself with the warm water bottle, we have subsequently decided to remove all hot water bottles from the rooms.

Please come and visit us again so we can make up for the disappointment of your first experience.

Kind regards
Annemien
