We stayed for one night and found it to be very comfortable, clean and the staff helpful. Breakfast was very nice. Centrally located and safe parking. Has an European feeling about it. Fridge and microwave for utilization.

This hotel is very good value and a nice place to stay. Right in town and close to everything, we had a nice, clean, well equipped room (not the fanciest room but it was all we needed, we were only in Stellenbosch to visit our son who is at varsity) and a very good breakfast the next morning.

Very charming and beautiful. Rooms are clean and neat. Staff friendly and very helpful. Perfect location to explore attractions around Stellenbosch. Close to the university. Will definitely recommend this lodge in Stellenbosch. Walking distance from things to see in town. Lots if wine farms to visit.

As noted in an earlier review the professional photos do not live up to the reality of the place . The rooms are sadly in need of updating especially the bathrooms. The location is in the middle of the student quarters surrounded by their accommodation. Not what we had wanted in beautiful Stellenbosch. I believe perhaps the 2 rooms above... More

The Ryneveld Lodge is a cute romantic place to stay., the honeymoon suite is furnished beautifully and has a old fashioned bath that is to die for. You are surrounded by beautiful scenery and are in the middle of wine country. There are several towns close by to drive to and sightsee or there are tours available to do. The... More

This is a great place to stay as long as you don't expect 5 star accommodations. But you're not paying for that. The rooms have character and are unique. They are very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The area is close to restaurants, etch, but far enough away to be quiet. The rooms upstairs are the nicest.

Well what a pity that we booked this hotel for our stay in beautiful Stellenbosch! The hotel is in desperate need of paint and other refurbishing! Really depressing! The breakfast was also served in a very unprofessional way!

I made a mistake and booked two nights instead of one. Upon check-in I informed reception of my mistake. Although they were under no obligation to do so, they fully refunded my 2nd night's stay that I did not utilise. Great location for Stellenbosch.

On arrival in capetown, the hotel had organised transport to stellenbosch. The shuttle bus was waiting for us. The hotel is in two parts on either side of the road. Our room was on the opposite side of the road from the main building behind asteel gate, a wooden door and yet another door. A room done in the old... More

I've now stayed at the Ryneveld lodge twice. Each time, I was met with great service. The B&B is stacked full of beautiful antique furniture, reminiscent of its history. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the breakfast delicious. It is a mere block away from Stellenbosch university. The only thing I found strange was that there is no Rooibos... More
