The staff at Fynbos were one of the most accommodating I've encountered during my 2 months stay in South Africa. They were very professional and hospitable and allowed us to use the kitchen and eat at the dining hall at times since we were staying there for 2 weeks. Thanks!

My daughter and I flew to Cape Town for 2 days to visit Stellenbosch University. I looked on the internet and found Fynbos Villa Guest House. What a pleasant surprise when we found it in central Stellenbosch. Fynbos is actually 2 houses with 14 spacious rooms and 2 family rooms, which can accommodate 5-6 people.The guest houses are still in... More

Fynbos Guest Villa is central to the town of Stellenbosch. Walkable to boutique and mall shopping, main dining areas, the university and main conference centre. The staff were welcoming and accommodations clean. It is a historical building so the furniture is old but very well preserved. Good wifi. Great breakfast included.

A lovely B@B with very clean rooms that are tastefully decorated and have everything you need. Comfy beds with plenty of blankets for those chilly nights. Delicious breakfasts are served every morning by friendly staff. Really a lovely place.

Stayed here one night prior to departing the next day from Cape Town airport. It is a cosy and very convenient to the restaurants and shopping in Stellenbosch so our early arrival meant we could go exploring. There is parking on site and breakfast was more than adequate. We stayed in the annex two doors down which has its own... More

This guest house scores highly in all of the main areas. The location is good, making it feasible to walk a bunch of places. They do a better than average breakfast, which is included in an overall price that represents superior value for money. The rooms are well appointed, albeit a little old school in decor, and there is secure... More

Fynbos Guesthouse is a beautiful historic house in which they have maintained the decor of the era- magnificent antique furniture, couches, old writing desks, all beautifully maintained- somehow our jeans & shirts did not match the decor!! But this is a fabulous place to stay, walking distance into the centre of Stellenbosch, and set in a street of other gracious... More

If you are using the Guest House only to sleep and take a breakfest then it is Ok. It is not too expensive. When you want to spend some time during the day and sit outside there might be better places. The terrace is near the place were the cars are parked.

Great service for a fantastic long weekend, clean rooms, friendly staff! Should you wish to stay in Stellenbosch I would honestly suggest that you consider this guesthouse, Warm and Friendly accomodation away from home!!!
