I stayed for several days. As far as the house was concerned, I could not have chosen a better place. Many little details made the stay very enjoyable. Very nice pool; towels and terry robe provided. Good breakfast. Quiet neighborhood in an almost residential area. The room was old-fashioned but very clean. Fine arts on the walls. Parking was within... More

My wife and I stayed at Summerwood for 3 days November 2014. We cannot speak highly enough of our experience. There was nothing we could find fault with, the personal attention food and accommodation could not be bettered.

While looking for a nice guest house in Stellenbosch we found the beautiful little Summerwood Guest House and were so glad we chose it. The house, the garden, the surroundings and especially the friendly and dedicated staff made our stay really memorable. Received a good route map with the booking confirmation and had already very nice communication with the guest... More

This is such a cute place to stay when visiting the wineries. The conceirge was extremely helpful with making reservations for wine tastings and arranged a driver to escort us to 3 wineries. The breakfast offered in the morning is very good-yogurt, cereal, eggs, juice, coffee, tea. Rooms were clean and decorated very nicely-complimentary water and coffee/cakes all day.

This guest house draws all its cues from the best in boutique hotel sophistication. You are made to feel at home from the second you arrive along the leafy suburban streets. This is an enclave in South Africa that's removed from the haunting townships. Here you are in the heart of wine country. The climate is sublime though we went... More

I've stayed in several guest houses in Stellenbosch but this was the best so far. A beautiful house with very spacious and well designed rooms. A huge pool and a very good breakfast makes you forget that the walk to the city center would be quite long because it's nicer to stay in anyway.

We spend our wedding night with them and they are just the most friendly and accommodating people! I felt bad because in the rush we forgot our keys in the room and I phoned them from the venue to ask if they can leave the keys outside somewhere. They told me not a problem they will give me the keys... More

What a delightful place, where attention to detail is their second nature. spotlessly clean and with every creature comfort. Always cake and coffee available along with drinks all day long. After month of travelling the Garden Route we would have to rank this the best B&B we experienced. The location is perfect in a leafy area of stately homes and... More
