Within walking distance of Stellenbosch's city center this guest house is close to most of the attractions within the town, yet far enough to give you that relaxed environment away from the hustle-and-bustle.

We've really enjoyed our stay at this accommodation. The whole ambiance is nice. Staff is very friendly and the room was fine. Parking is a bit tight but it's ok. Breakfast was very good! Points of improvement are the curtains. Since the garden has some lights at night, the curtains should be better. The room was very bright during the... More

Beautiful gasthouse, good breakfast, the ladies of the house were so kind and helped us when one of us had to go to the hospital. They helped us choosing good restaurants. The rooms were very good and very clean. If I go to Stellenbosch again I go back to this guesthouse!
