Average hotel. We were clearly booked in a not yet renovated room. The room was very small and the bathroom was old and in need of urgent renovation. We could hear every sound of our next door neighbors. Location is perfect in the middle of Stellenbosch. Staff is friendly and breakfast is very good. But all in all an average... More

Great overnight stay. Excellent breakfast. Clean and fresh rooms. The hotel is also reasonably priced and thus makes it good choice for quick business in and out stays. Décor is typical Cape-Dutch and the staff is friendly without being a total pain.

Room was very small, damp smell in coridoors. maybe we got their smallest cheapest room because we got a discounted rate from your site. Otherwise not a bad place to stay for 1 or 2 nights. Certainly would not stay there longer.

We stayed here for two nights in mid July 2014. We found the hotel ideally located in the heart of Stellenbosch, enabling us to explore this enchantingly historic and beautiful town on foot. We stayed in a fully equipped apartment with a balcony and street view. The staff were very helpful and attentive, offering lots of tourist advice and information.... More

Quiet, comfortable, clean, responding to any need, and right in the centre of Stellenbosch, at 2-minute walk from every important spot of the town. I enjoyed the breakfast, and their restaurant is quite good. I recommend it.

The Stellenbosch Hotel is an old heritage building and does not offer all the modern amenities a world traveller might expect to see. However, what it may lack in finish it makes up for with pleasant staff who are eager to please. Don't stay here if you want ducted air conditioning and heating, flat screen television and all the bells... More

Surprised by the prime location, quiet bedroom, excellent staff and all for a good price. Nearby coffee and book shops, plenty of places to eat within 5 minutes walk and historic neighbourhood. We have already recommended to family and friends

I stayed only 1 night at this lovely little hotel in the centre of Stellenbosch. My room was nice although the tiled floors very chilly in winter. The bed was very good, linen and towels good too. I had a shower and a bath and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The aircon worked well as it was very... More
