What a lovely guest house... but we were truly disappointed with the breakfast offering and service. The staff at the restaurant were very unprofessional and uninformed... a recipe for disaster. After waiting for 15 minutes for a glass of water, we opted to have breakfast elsewhere. But yet again... apart from the breakfast, we had a lovely stay.

Uncomfortable pillows and noisy staff. For a 4 star establishment there's an awful lot of creaking and squeaking going on of door handles and floor boards. Not impressed with the lack of aircon and shower head.. Very pricey and not so nicey.

Presented and priced as a 4 Star BnB one has certain expectations. Ons Genot is 3 Star at best. However rooms are spacious (No 2) and comfortable. Breakfast, an important part of a BnB offering, is very disappointing. Very little choice, powder coffee and "juice" (which was nothing more than flavoured sugar water), service staff uncaring and disinterested. We opted... More

Good location off the Bottelary Road on the doorstep of the wine regions of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Friendly hosts who have extensive knowledge of the wine regions. An organised setup, very clean, relaxed, and descent pool with good views of the local mountains. Gardens managed well, plenty of parking, coffee/tea making facility also. Overall a very comfortable stay.

We stayed here 4 nights visiting the winelands around Stellenbosch. This country lodged is managed by a Flemish family from Kobbegem and has got 9 rooms. We slept in the widest bed I've ever seen in my whole life...must have been 3 meters wide. Very comfortable sleeping. This whole country lodge is very relaxing and laid back. There's a strong...

Lovely guest farm with a very good restaurant nearby. Clean and cosy with very friendly staff. Each unit has a terrace outside with a table where you can enjoy a glass of wine. Excellent value for money. We'll be back.

A quite unprepossessing entrance to a charming cottage and gardens but which are both beginning to look tired for want of attention. Rooms were good - although a long time since I slept under a sheer and blanket! Bathrooms well presented with all amenities. Catering was reasonable at a restaurant about 250metres away. I think under common ownership but a... More

We longed for month to have our honeymoon in South-Africa, so we set very high standards for our trip. When we arrived in Stellenbosch, we were welcomed by Marleen and Eric. We felt right at home! We'd choosen to do the big deal: from cape to big 5. We got a rout plan, maps and brochures of the places we... More

I stayed at Ons Genot with my husband and our 1 year old son for 2 nights. The guesthouse is located in peaceful surroundings outside Stellenbosch - well situated for trips to the many vineyards in the area. Our room was spacious and functional with a large bathroom and a big bed - everything spotless and clean. The owner was... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay with Marlene who made us very welcome in this lovely hotel. Fantastic private garden outside our room where beautiful weaver birds were nesting nearby. As a bit of a twitcher, I loved the variety of other bird life in evidence. Bring your binoculars. Adjacent Radish restaurant served excellent dinners.
