Lovely historic building in central Stellenbosch; easy to walk to restaurants. Stayed a couple of nights whilst we visited the Winelands and were not disappointed. Friendly staff with helpful advice; good accommodation and breakfast was lovely in the courtyard...very much enjoyed our stay and would return.

Great location and a beautiful old building, within minutes walk to town centre and restaurants. Large comfortable room. Breakfast in the courtyard was an absolute delight. Staff were very welcoming and helped by recommending good restaurants and a wine tour.

Beautifully located in the historic heart of Stellenbosch, this is a lovely guest house. Very friendly and attentive service. There is an inner courtyard where we had an excellent breakfast each morning in the shade. Newspapers are provided, which is a nice touch. We had Room 4, which like the whole place was spotlessly clean and had a modern bathroom... More

Great location in central Stellenbosch. Two minute walk to shops and restaurants but not so near as to bothered by the vibrant student night life activities. Very nice room (if a little on the small side although it was the cheapest) and very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Our last night on holiday and a great place to... More

We stayed for three nights to tour the wine region. These guys are awesome. Paul hooked us up with a "tour" that was in progress the minute we got there, giving us a great intro to the region and the wineries. From there they were super helpful as we planned our own wine trips and dining out. The Guest House... More

We wanted to stay longer but it was fully booked so we had to move to another place:-( Paul was very helpfull in finding transportation to go to rust en vrede wich also was an extra ordinary experience.

This was our second stay at Oude Leeskamer and it was just as good as last year. Paul and his team are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble, we had the same room as last year and looked forward to the lovely breakfasts in the courtyard. Such a convenient location in the heart of Stellenbosch, we will... More

We stayed here for two nights over the New Year holiday period and coold find no fault at all. The room was quite small with good quality furnishings and a lovely balcony. The location is ideal as it is right in the centre of Stellenbosch. The girl on reception, (sorry cant remember her name), was great at getting us reservations... More

I was at Stellenbosch for a workshop and always looked forward to the end of day when I would happily go back to this guesthouse for a relaxing evening away from academic stress. It exudes an aura of serenity and peace. Friendly staff, yummy breakfast, clean room (very much loved my room)....I enjoyed my stay and would go again. Thanks... More

This small hotel is in a perfect location in the centre of Stellenbosch allowing you to walk to all the shops and restaurants. The staff are all very pleasant with excellent recommendations and the breakfast is very good, served in a lovely courtyard when weather permits. Highly recommend.
