We had a wonderful time at Albarosa. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Die rooms beautiful and had everything we needed. Love staying so close to the city centre and being able to walk to all the nice restaurants and shops.

Friendly staff and great breakfast. Great location very close to town and the mountains for walking, trail running or biking. The guesthouse is a bit dark and could do with some new décor. We had the Library room which is right next to the front door and has a separate bathroom - not much privacy.

An attractive B&B with clean rooms, nicely located to restaurants, consistent wifi, a fine breakfast and all at a reasonable price. Only minor complaint was receptionist upon arrival misinformed saying breakfast did not start until 8:00 am; next morning we heard breakfast being served by 7:00 or so.

I booked very late & therefore had a room with the bathroom across a corridor which is not ideal, but the welcome I got when I arrived late (& in the middle of load shedding) was warm, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent!

We were welcomed in by friendly staff. Excellent large rooms all aircontioned with plenty of space. Conveniently located a short distance from the centre of Stellenbosch with its array of restaurants and pubs plus unique shops. An excellent breakfast included in your bill was most enjoyable. No turn down or replacement of teas and coffees in the evening so no... More

The Rooms are beautiful , but there is one room called library. It has the bathroom outside and US very dark. The breakfast is very good and the stuff is very kind. The house is just a 3 minutes walk from the center.

Gert (Manager) provided many recommendations during... More

I had a lovely stay at Albarosa recently. The room was comfortable and the guesthouse was easy to locate. Our host was very friendly, offering us homemade marmalade for the toast in the morning. Very nice overall!

Albarosa defines elegance and attention to detail - complimentary sherry in the rooms; welcoming fire in the lounge; pots of chocolates appearing like magic on one's return from an evening out; fine china; Victorian baths; friendly and attentive staff .... Now I know where to go when I return to Stellenbosch - especially during the cold, Cape winter. Thank you,... More

The Albarosa was well signposted and easy to find and located ideally in a quiet road but 3 minutes from main shops and restaurants of Stellenbosch. the house itself is a lovely example of a fine old house, and it feels like staying in someone's much loved home. It felt secure and welcoming with every facility including good wifi. The... More
