Liked: The living room has comfortable sofa's and a nice big fireplace that is great for a winter's night. A large selection of wine and other drinks are available, and the rooms were quite comfortable. The grounds and swimming pool was well kept, and the neighbourhood looks very safe. The breakfast is divine, with fresh fruit, a huge selection of... More

We had two rooms at the Apple Tree Guest House for two nights. I can not recommend this wonderful place enough! The rooms are spacious (clean, fully equipped and perfectly decorated) with great bathrooms - spacious showers with a separate bath! The most comfortable lounge with a roaring fire and everything you could ask for! The breakfasts in the morning... More

Very quiet Guest House, friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast, nice to have the swimming pool. The Guest House is 15' away on foot from the Town centre but after sunset we were told not to walk back. Problem was it is very difficult to get a taxi in Stellenbosch. So a car would be recommended.

The cushions on beds are a bit to thick. Everything else were perfect as always. We always like to stay here - the staff and management are friendly and efficient and the guesthouse central. For atmosphere and security - well done!!

We stayed in Apple Tree GH for one night only at the end of May, although it would been worth to spend there the whole weekend. Rooms are very nice and clean and the GH is 15 mins from Stellenbosch centre. There' s a nice common room with sofas and a fireplace that unfortunately we could not use due to... More

Great value! Very friendly and helpful owner. The guesthouse is very clean and breakfast was excellent. Stellenbosch is a lovely town, lots of shopping and bars & restaurants. Quite a classy place and of course lots of wine tasting at vineyards and recommend to do lunch with wine pairing at Clos Malverne We stayed at the end of May 2014

My wife and I went to a wedding in Stellenbosch, and just made a booking at the nearest guest house to the wedding, but what we found was a hidden gem. It is in a nice part of town which is quiet and safe, the rooms are awesome with a nice big bed and a spacious bathroom. There is a... More

We stayed at the apple tree quest house for 9 days. Having chosen this resident based upon the reviews on trip advisor, we are pleased to say that we agree with them. The rooms were nice, clean and cozy, the breakfast was really nice (always included a freshly baked omelet), and the pool was a nice addition in the 37... More

Excellent service, nicely decorated, comfortable rooms, & lovely, varied breakfasts. Close to Stellenbosch centre. Had lots of informative pamphlets regarding activities in the surrounding areas. My only complaint is that it's situated on a slightly dingy street.
