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.

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.
