My wife and I stayed here whilst celebrating our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful 2 night stay in Stellenbosch. Hotel room was very well equipped and service was exemplary. Buffet style breakfast supplemented by freshly prepared hot food. As we had booked this hotel through our travel agent the hotel had been advised of our celebratory visit and kindly... More

A hotel whichis generally good but still has some way to go. The general manager was very hard working and customer orientated. Rooms vary from very new to classic older ones. The pool courtyard is very central to rooms and connference delegates gather to shout down their mobile phones, guests too so not a relaxing location and the pool was... More

At the arrival staff were really friendly but after that not so much. We had the "biggest" room with terrace because we were on our honeymoon. No sparkling or flowers in the room, even if stated so in the hotelbooklet that honeymooners get it. After pointing it out they brought sparkling at 9.30pm to the room. Terrace in bad condition...

Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to comment. We can only offer our sincerest apologies – there was a change in allocated rooms, and sadly no one moved the sparkling wine (and other treats) to your new room. There are no excuses – it was a mistake on our side and one we sincerely hope will not... More

We stayed here at the beginning of the month, for three nights. The room definitely have a wow factor, with a huge bed, overlooking the pretty pool area with our own little patio opening right onto it, and a great bathroom! I didn't find the staff amazingly friendly but that could be because we had just come from a smaller... More

Although the Hotel is being renovated, it was still a comfortable stay at this hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch. There is still extensive work being done, and I imagine once it is completed it will be a great place to stay. Very central with excellent restaurants and shopping on your doorstep.

The room we were first allocated was ok, but being on the side, was very dark. When we were moved to a room overlooking the swimming pool, this was much better. Parking was well looked after and the staff were helpful. Breakfasts were good and the evening meal we had was very good. If you book this hotel, ask for... More

We were allocated the last and worst room opposite reception desk, entrance and outside verandah - but we were paying over 160GBP! This would have been just OK but the room has dark drapes at the window which reduces the light dramatically and one window was opposite the side alley. Even with all lights on I could not read the... More

Thank you for your feedback.
