We have had many experiences in stay overs in Stellenbosch over past 6 years, visiting our children at the university as well as for business purposes. The stay at Magnolia was our second and we ever so sorry we never discovered it 6 years ago. Thank you to the staff you not only make us feel welcome but make us... More

Comfortable and clean. Recommended for weary travellers that want some quiet time away from the town. Short drive into town. Great rates during peak time. Rates exclude breakfast but basic breakfast is included in the room which is quiet considerate

We did not stay in the room we booked! We had to drive to a second house, which was very old and outdated. Felt more like staying in a commune than a guest house. Location is good being in the Boord. Don't market one thing and produce something else. Won't go back!

Very disappointing B&B. 1) Cleaning staff noise and guests smoking outside the room - had to move to another room - didn't resolve the smoking issue. 2) Staff hanging washing less than 1m from the toilet/shower window chatting away 3) Light fittings broken, bulbs blown, noisy fans (no aircon) 4) Parking a total disaster - very tight and not enough...

We had a great stay. Perfect place for a short stay and close to town. Very welcoming and peaceful. The room was a lovely space. Our room didn't have air conditioning like my sisters but plenty of fans to keep cool.

Cannot rate the place seeing that Magnolia Place was over booked and moved us to another Guesthouse which was over booked as well. Stranded in Stellenbosch with accommodation 100% prepaid but no room. Poorly managed and not even a proper apologize. Really disappointed

Dear Therry, Please accept our sincere apology. We have investigated what happened and it turns out the room was allocated by the reservation system three times! This is a first and we are following it up with our system providers. In addition after having gone to all the trouble of finding an alternative room, it turns out it was also... More

The basics are fine, and the prices are very good for this area. I checked in late in the afternoon, and there was a problem with my room keys. Annoying as I ran late for my next appointment. There was no plug in the hand basin. The self catering set up is fine, except that there is no sink, and... More

Our one night stay here was fine, the room was a bit tiny but for the price and location it was perfectly adequate. Room was clean, good towels, linen etc. Given the high price of most accommodation in Stellenbosch I would not hesitate to stay there again.

the Location of the hotel is out of the restaurants area, so Driving to have dinner is required . The room was full of mosquitos, and it didn't have any plug in repellent. Fridge and microwave included but the room is too small to even considering having a meal there.

I can't say I would recommend this place for a number of reasons. I booked 5 months in advance as I knew it was going to be high season and we needed accommodation for 1 night to attend a wedding in Stellenbosch. We were put in room 9. To get to it, we had to go around the back of... More
