Loved the room, the stay, the breakfast and Stellenbosch! It was relaxing, the room clean and beautiful and wonderful to take a stroll around town as it is so close.

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.
