Beautiful Accommodation in a Beautiful Setting
This is a really beautiful guesthouse; totally in keeping with the stunning Stellenbosch area. We had a very warm welcome and a wonderful stay. The rooms, outdoor space, main lounge and dining room are all spacious, elegant and immaculately kept. Breakfast was made up of three courses, each with various lovely choices. All the food was very nice, the only downside was the service was very slow and sometimes our orders got confused. There were a couple of nice extras we weren't expecting such as free bikes we could borrow if we wanted, cosy swing chairs on the porch we could curl up in and read books and little chocolates left each night on our door handle. We were sad to leave after two nights.

Great Guesthouse
We stayed over for 4 nights as we had a wedding in Stellenbosch. The place is well located and is safe and secure. Not far from the Centre with restaurants and shops. We got Uber’s everyone but you can walk in to the Centre. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is great and the staff went out there way to make us take away sandwiches after we missed breakfast one morning. Didn’t use the pool as we didn’t have time, but it looked clean. The guesthouse was peaceful and chilled out. We would definitely stay again!
