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....

Spacious comfortable and chic rooms, with first class fittings and amenity. Very quiet at night, very restful sleep. We had an upstairs room with a shared balcony, nice to sit out there and chill, and the pool area is also very pleasant. Hosts Rohan and Gwen are very informative and went out of their way to make our stay a... More

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.

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,...
