My wife and I stayed with Johan and Gwen at their delightful establishment - and what a treat it was - well appointed, spotlessly clean with the best quality fittings, soft furnishings and linen, and absolute attention to detail made this a memorable and extremely comfortable stay. And the personalized and friendly service from our hosts was outstanding. Centrally situated... More

I visited South Africa in March and needless to say paid another visit to beautiful Stellenbosch, which is one of my favourite places! Once again I stayed at Aan Dorpstraat Guest House and once again it met all my expectations. The hosts, Gwen and Johan, really know how to make one feel welcome and are very good at giving pertinent... More

Excellent from the moment we arrived. Gwen and Johan are attentive and helpful hosts and very knowledgeable about their local area. They gave us good tips on trips to take, places to see and restaurants to eat in. Indeed, after various email exchanges prior to our arrival and at our request, Gwen even booked some things for us in advance... More

Very clean, beds & linen excellent. Accommodation is to a high standard with good facilities (air con, fridge, shower & bath …). Good location, central to Stellenbosch. However ... space is at a premium both in the rooms and the lodging generally. For holiday makers clothes storage space is likely to a problem. Expect to bang your head on the... More

In this way we meet and interact with interesting people from all over the world and broaden our horizons as our guests experience a little bit of our Stellenbosch way of life.

This was our first visit to Stellenbosch for more than 10 years. An Dorpstraat guest House very is easy to find even without a GPS and we received very warm welcome from the owners. The room took some getting used to for me (195 cm tall) because of low roof beams in the corners. Other than that the room was... More

Gwen & Johan did a great job of welcoming us for our honeymoon and also our wedding guests. We have stayed previously, so when choosing hotels for our honeymoon, for both us and our guests, this was a definite choice for Stellenbosch.

Charming hosts where nothing is too much trouble. They are very knowledgeable on the local area. The location is good, being on a quiet street on the edge of Stellenbosch, with secure car parking and a short and easy walk to restaurants, shops and attractions. Everything was very clean. The breakfast is made to order in front of you, as... More

Every detail in Aan Dorpstrat has been thought about and chosen with care. Room 7 is a delight. The bed is extremely comfortable (where else have you found three pillows of different thickness ?), there is fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge (which is noiseless), the en suite is luxurious with a large shower, the towels are fluffy....
