The room we booked, the Author's room, was small. So we moved to a much larger room at a greatly increased price. Perhaps Stellenbosch accommodation prices are higher than further down the Garden Route, but we paid a similar price for much better accommodation elsewhere. However, the service was excellent, the room was clean and everything (other than the price)... More

Very nice traditional Guesthouse right at the centre of Stellenbosch. But it was the staff who made our stay most comfortable and served us the most delicious breakfast in the morning with home-made marmalade or Gerd who assisted us with dinner reservations and helped us organize our activities in the Winelands! Thanks again for having us!

This guesthouse was very central and the room was clean, cosy and nicely decorated. The fruit salad at breakfast was the best and possibly the largest portion I have ever had. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this guesthouse.

Perfect location, beautiful spacious rooms, great hospitality and fantastic breakfast! I loved the attention to detail and extra touches in both the room (rusks, lamp in case of power failure, tabard and even bubblebath (which I always miss in hotels!)in the bathroom) and at breakfast -fruit salad was the best I'd ever had! Thank you, Gert & staff for a... More

Really lovely hotel and staff, very centrally located. Would definitely recommend and return! Was traveling over a two week period and the hotel I was at previously could not accommodate my stay over the weekend, so I booked at Albarosa. The front desk made sure my billing was accurate and the overall booking.com experience was quite good.

This accommodation is really very nice, it has a homey-feel with a warm welcome, quiet garden in the sun and shade and nice rooms with everything you need. And in case you need something, there is always somebody to help you out. Highly recommendable! Only one small remark: some beds in the self catering are relatively small when you are... More

Stayed for 2 nights on a recent trip to Stellenbosch. Get was most helpful in suggesting some wine farms and places to visit. Breakfast was delicious and coffee was great. Overall a very high standard and within walking distance to the main restaurants and shops. Would stay again.

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.
