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

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

Stellenbosch Hotel, what a lovely little oasis in the city. Surrounded by funky bars, restaurants and shops (plenty of vegan options for which we were grateful) and amidst a thriving creative arts culture. We opted for a petit room as we were on a budget and it was perfect for our needs; small and cosy, with an ensuite bathroom and... More

Friendly, central and romantic place. Perfect for a stop over in this wine area. Comfortable and clean rooms. The suberb cental location means you are within easy stumbeling distance of shops, restaurants and bars. Free car park is very useful. Breakfast is not great but OK for the price.

Charming historic hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch (which is probably the most beautiful town in South Africa). very affordable which serves a mean breakfast. the amenities in the room are clean and there is everything you need for a pleasant stay. Highly recommended .

We didn't actually stop in the Stellenbosch hotel (though it is in an enviable location in the heart of Stellenbosch). We went to the Stellenbosch Hotel for dinner on the Thursday evening (the first evening after arriving). On a Thursday they have half price burgers (meaning that they are of even better value). The food was lovely (though the steak... More
