Stayed 3 nights here, and it's very nice - as other reviewers have said it's a beautiful guesthouse and pretty close to the main shopping and restaurant area in Stellenbosch such Dorp and Church Streets. Would say a 5min walk along safe and quaint streets. The interiors are lovely, very classy decoration with high quality furniture and attention to style,... More

Middedorp is very well located and has been beautifully restored. The rooms are stylish and very well appointed. Isolde and Maxwell were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good but not to the standard we received elsewhere in other Cape guesthouses - for example we were disappointed that omelettes could not be prepared and there was limited choice of bread...

Positives - the location. situated in a cosy neighbourhood very close to the botanical garden, the university and the city centre (true stellenbosch is quite small). - the service. we were received with a very warm welcome and treated very caringly throughout our stay. there didn't seem to be much staff as it's not a big guesthouse but the staff...

I'm a bit surprised by the last two reviews of the self catering unit as we spent three days there last week and were very happy with it, maybe in part due to the issues raised earlier? Anyway, as of last week I can confirm there is a fan in the unit, hangers, safe, hairdryer etc. but contrary to the... More

Where to start? My wife and 26-year old son and I booked two rooms for two nights at Middedorp. On arrival we were told that our rooms were not available, but they offered us the "owner's cottage" in the rear. The owner's cottage was perfectly horrible. There was no air conditioning which necessitated opening the windows, but there were no... More

Dear WmCotter, I sincerely apologise for your room allocation on arrival. This is exactly the same problem we had with the previous review "So, so … but not again". It was caused by a technical system error which has now been resolved. The apartment is not sold at the same price point as the Deluxe Suites in the main house... More

The manager of Middedorp Manor had already messed up our reservation prior to our arrival. Fortunately, after several calls and with the help of our travel agent, we thought that the situation had been rectified. However, upon arrival we were told that we would stay in the "self-catering flat". A true disappointment, especially as we had booked a luxury room... More

Dear JGMW, At Middedorp Manor, we always value constructive criticism. But your review is a misconstrued interpretation on events. Firstly: within 10 hours of your reservation request (overnight for us) you were informed of the situation with a double booking from Booking.com. The Booking.com guests had already paid and we offered to help you with alternative accommodation in Stellenbosch. You... More

The accommodation here is very nice. Boutique in style, high quality and very relaxing. Isolde and Max were very welcoming on our arrival, and did everything to make us feel comfortable. The breakfast on the patio each morning was lovely, and is very well located to the centre of Stellenbosch. Only bit of feedback, is regarding the wi-fi. This was... More

We were at Middedorp for 3 nights in September and loved it. They arranged a driver to pick us up late in the evening at the Cape Town airport, waited for us to arrive and gave us superb care thereafter. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were excellent and the location was only a couple of blocks from the... More

Received by Maxwell on our arrival, who assisted with our bags and was generally very pleasant and helpful. The room rate of R800 was good value compared with similar establishments. I will definitely stay there again.
