Excellent accommodation and perfect proximity to the centre of town. Would definitely stay there again. Would also recommend the accommodation to friends and family. No need for a vehicle as you are stay to walk around the town.

The reception was very friendly. The unit I stayed in was on the second floor. The unit was very nice and clean. It was very convenient to stay here. It is walking distance from the shops and restaurants. Nice and safe too.

Key handover very efficient and organised to suit clients arrival time. Other apartments slightly further off the main block if you don't like being in town. Safe to walk the 5... More

We stayed at the Huis Pirot apartment, it was spacious, clean and very very centrally located. Was easy to stroll to the city centre and truly enjoy the Stellenbosch life. But they are apartments, not a hotel, if that is your expectation you will be disappointed, I enjoy an apartment style hotel, so this was perfect for me and I... More

Second stay, same positive experience, well organised, exceptional staff, lots of effort with breakfast, appreciate extras (snacks and drinks, hand lotion next to bed. Parking could be a problem if too many guests.

It was a very good experience. The room was in perfect condition. I arrived late but the attendee helped me in a professional manner. The location however is in a busy street and its' difficult to get back on the road. The breakfast was super.

I have stayed here a number of times whilst visiting our daughter at Stellenbosch. My husband has also stayed and been upgraded. We love it. The Staff are very friendly and helpful, particularly Etienne.

Property reception felt cluttered and the pool was dirty. Physical property did not relect those on the website fairly. That said the location was good and it was fine for the one night we were there.

We booked in Life & Leisure, friendly staff but the experience was tainted by the fact that the house and apartment is very untidy and generally unclean. Dirty coffee cups and a full ashtray was left at the pool. The floors of the guest house are filthy and look like they were cleaned weeks ago. The inside of the cupboards... More
