What a beautiful hotel the only downside was we were only there for one night. I would have loved to stay longer. We were in room 6 which had double doors onto the open veranda. The veranda was open to other guests but we saw no one and so had the veranda to ourselves which was perfect for post dinner... More

We stayed at this hotel two weeks ago for four nights. The location is perfect for a visit to Stellenbosch as it's only a three minute walk to the town centre. Breakfasts were good and served in very pleasant surroundings. Our bedroom was rather tired, although adequate, with a good shower room. Although a double room, the beds were singles... More

We did get a wrong bottle of wine from kanonkop after a wine tasting and Lisa helped us to the right bottle, thanks again Lisa! The only thing negative... More

This was our last stop on an eight hotel trip and was a lovely place to relax after a busy couple of weeks. Our room was very nice and the hotel has a lovely atmosphere. The pool was a lovely place to relax and eating breakfast outside was a treat. It's only a short walk to the shops and the... More

If you want somewhere where you don't want to meet someone you know...go here...it just doesn't seem possible that you would have to share this very quiet and peaceful place with anyone else, let alone someone you might know! We stayed for two nights in room 6, up the stairs, french doors, adjoining an open balconied sitting area overlooking one... More

we stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine area. Despite the reservations from our agent the hotel had big rooms and good service. The location is excellent and walking distance to the busy town centre. The rooms itself could do with a touch up or renovation.

Little boutique short walk to restaurants and bars in Stellenbosch. Arrived early as we had booked a wine tour and the staff kindly looked after our luggage for us and made us a coffee on the veranda before we went out which was a nice touch. Our room was large and decorated nicely in colonial style. Little issues in the... More
