We stayed at Fynbos Villa while we attended a course at the Stellenbosch University. The guest house is a national monument which makes it "antique". The reception staff and the atmosphere is unfortunately very cold. On the upside it is walking distance from the university and the chef that cooks the breakfast is very friendly!

We booked two rooms, well in advance. Unfortunately, the second room, for our 18 year old daughter, was in a separate house, two doors down the street, which was not quite what we had expected. Both rooms were spacious, but the furniture is mismatched furniture, which gives the place a rather homey B & B feel; again not what we... More

Dear Mrs Belinda Thank you for some positive feedback to us. Yes, the concerts in US Endler Hall is a plus for Stellenbosch. Luckily Fynbos Villa is situated 3 min away in safe walking distance! We take notice of your personal taste about original Victorian furniture. Regards, Fynbos personnel and owners More

Very friendly and helpful staff throughout my stay. Great breakfasts! Very good location close to pretty much everything. Comfortable room with character and all of the amenities you'd expect. I would recommend it.

This was my first trip to the Stellenbosch town. Fynbos Villa Guesthouse has a character so hommy and relaxed. I was home away from home easing the missed love of my loving wife and sons. Has the friendly access to social and basic facilities

So often what is in the can is not what is on the label, especially with B&B places. Fynbos from start to end was a pleasant surprise. Well located near the town amenities, the rooms are fairly spacious, well priced, and pleasantly appointed. It is adequate and comfortable. The simple but sufficient breakfast is just what one needs before launching... More

Fynbos Villa is very conveniently located - close to the University and the centre of Stellenbosch. However, the family unit is advertised as having two bedrooms when in fact the children's beds are in the lounge or sitting area - which is not ideal. Also the access to the bathroom is through the main bedroom - again not great when... More

Fynbos is an excellent establishment run by very friendly people with some small deficits. The rooms to the street are too loud, the breakfast room is too small. All other aspects - see ratings - just about perfect!
