A Marvelous place with great stuff that makes you feel like home, well, it was the first time that I feel sad for leaving this lovely city and want to stay more..., Very good location, the atmosphere inside the property makes you feel like home, and I really appreciate the daily morning fruit bowel :) Thank you Willem...

We booked the Albarosa on the internet, so weren't completely sure what to expect, but it turned out to be an inspired choice. It's location in central Stellenbosch is ideal for exploring this vibrant university town with its many shops, restaurants and bars. Gert, the owner, is a charming and attentive host, ably assisted by housekeeper Jackie and his dog... More

It was ok, the breakfast was amazing, the room was clean and very nice. I didn't like the towels, small and not clean. The position it's perfect to visit the city and the winelands area. The owner is very nice and suggested us a very good restaurant where to have our dinner.

Wonderful stay in Stellenbosch, fantastic location very close to restaurants and town centre. The guest house was nice and quiet with friendly service and a wonderful breakfast! We will definitely call again.

This is a very pretty guest house with fresh flowers and all the trimming including the perfect host - GERT - Use Gert -- he has very good local knowledge and his suggestion are finely tuned for the weather and your needs. I prefer a room upstairs or away from the early morning breakfast rush.

Great location, friendly and amenable staff and very comfortable; comes thoroughly recommended! Breakfast is a highlight and the owners are very happy to help organise outside arrangements (restaurant/taxi bookings etc). An ideal place to base yourself for wineland trips.

Stayed overnight at The Albarosa Guesthouse - very comfortable room (with aircon! which is much needed in Stellies!!). Owner was extremely helpful and friendly - had the most delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying at this B&B - its also very close to town to perfectly situated.

We have stayed at this guest house twice and have never been disappointed of the quality and service. Gert and his team has always been very service minded and helpful. We always stay in the same room with direct access to the nice garden and the small splash pool. The breakfast with fresh fruit and nicely prepared hot breakfast is... More

The accommodation was not what is shown in the images or on their site at all - talk about false advertising. The room and bathroom was dirty and not up to standards of what they claim. It was dark and dingy. We had friends joining us as well and were told to hang around and book them in ourselves as... More

I can not believe some of the other reviews I read after what I experienced. I found the guest house to be dark in need of renovation and run down. Mould on the bathroom walls, nothing like the pictures on the website. The service was non existent. Steer clear of this place much nicer venues around at similar price or... More
