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

We stayed in the cottage. The booking website we used stated that the cottage had two large double beds, it actually only has one standard double bed and 1 pull out couch. It was also mentioned on the website that there was free WiFi in all the rooms. We could not get wifi in our room. When this was mentioned... More

Visiting my granddaughter in Stellenbosch, I was extremely lucky to find the Albarosa. Very convenient for all purposes, especially as I was able to walk to most places i.e.shops and restaurants on my own while she was at lectures. Host very friendly and staff first class. A true "home from home"

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.

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.
