This quaint B&B is literally a home away from home. Penelope's small touches add such family flavour and this includes home baked croissants, scones and the little chocolates on our pillows :) :) Thank you.. will be bringing my little ones there soon.

Penolope's Guesthouse is really a home away from home. They were committed to meet my needs. I liked complementary small bottle of Amarula, their king size bed and the magnificent mount views from the comfort of your room's balcony.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Penelope's Guesthouse! The accommodations were exceptional, as well as the perfectly prepared breakfasts. Penelope goes above & beyond being a perfect hostess. I was suffering from a knee injury that was putting a damper on my vacation. Penelope took it upon herself to get me into her doctor. Thank heavens because I was... More

Everything you want in a B&B. Because the owner is involved herself the service is great. She really cares and will sort out anything. Facilities are excellent. Located in Paradyskloof suburb outside central Stellenbsosch.

Penelope's is situated in a quiet suburb of Stellenbosch. The guest house is very comfortable and spoitless. Penelope gives good tips for wine estates and dining out in Stellenbosch. it is ideally situated for golfers as Stellenbosch Golf Course is just around the corner. One does need a car.

Penelopes Guesthouse is a perfect place to stay. The rooms are new and well decorated - you have everything you could possibly need. You get a good breakfast (fresh eggs, fruits, honey, jam, cheese and and and :)) The neighbourhood is lovely: beautiful!! and only a short trip to the city center and perfect access to visit some of the...

Because the house is in a quiet residential neighbourhood with no nearby facilities, you will need a car to get around. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was good. The hosts made helpful suggestions, especially the Saturday market, well worth a few hours.

Penelope's was clean, bright and welcoming. a home away from home. I will definitely be back in April. The only thing I wasn't sure of is whether i could take a bottle of wine in the fridge. there was somewhere to mark for beers (I think) But I didn't see anything about wine so I bought my own.

This guesthouse is a very good option for a stay in Stellenbosch. It is nearby the town center and situated in a very quit area. Penelope herself is a perfect hostess and she will do anything to let you feel at home.
