Situated just off the 'main drag' and only 10 mins walk from the centre of town, this is a lovely bnb run by a very friendly couple. We had one of the upstairs rooms, under the eaves, which had the advantage of a separate staircase and back door with a balcony, from which you can see the sun come up,... More

A great location close to town center (Church and Dorp Streets) for shopping, dining and wine/coffee shops. Secure off street parking and a pool. Rooms are of a high standard both in fittings and housekeeping. Gwen and Johan are very professional and put a lot of effort into helping organize your activities in the area. Overall a great stay!

Coming from cold Europe we would probably have had a good time anywhere in Stellenbosch: But we definitely had a good time at Aan Dorpstraat Guesthouse. Relaxing and quiet atmosphere, cosy rooms and pool/ veranda facilities, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpfuls hosts and above all: so close to the centre.

LOCATION ! LOCATION ! LUXURY/COMFORT, GREAT HOSPITALITY, friendliness with heart and soul. Right in the center of town. Still absolutely quiet. Secure parking. The spacy rooms and bathrooms are furnished with great taste and attention to detail. Latest technology (electronics) all over the place. Bathroom with bath, toilet, bidet and a “great” walk-in rain shower. Happy sleeping guaranteed. Exceptionally FAST... More

It's all here in the previous reviews. Beautifully appointed rooms, good location in pretty Stellenbosch and super helpful and friendly hosts. Every detail is thought through, I couldn't find any milk on the tea tray in my room the first morning. Why? Because in the frig is a little jug of real milk! Mini bar to the standard of hotel,...

I got married in Stellenbosch (from Jozi) and went down before hand to put all the final arrangements in place. We drove past Aan Dorpstraat and decided the look of the guesthouse was nice and stayed over. It was such a great stay that my husband arranged for us to stay there on our honeymoon night.

I had a great 4 day stay at Aan Dorp Guesthouse. A very nice personal touch, great breakfast every morning, friendly owners and staff. Not to mention how close it is to everything else in the area. The security was very impressive, the rooms modern and a very nice bathroom. I will definitely return when in Stellenbosch again.
