Summerwood is so creatively done up. It has a luxury boutique hotel feel to it with its charming and quirky interior decor. The pool is huge and looked like great fun. We didn't get any time to try it out since we were there only for a night but it certainly looked inviting. You can even use their bicycles to... More

We stayed for our honeymoon and had the best room at the top with stunning views all around. The tub was great to relax in and the bed was very comfortable. The guest house staff was inviting from the moment we walked in and helped us plan our visits to wineries and local places to eat. We wish we could... More

I stayed in stellenbosch with a large group of friends and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door when we were offered tea and home made apple and poppy seed cake. The guest house is perfectly proportioned in that it is large enough to feel luxurious and yet small enough to feel personal.... More

Very lovely guest house located near the downtown in Stellenbosch. They have very comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. There is also off-street parking available. The staff are very friendly and willing to help make restaurant bookings as needed.

it was really an excellent stay! Very friendly staff was ready to greet me. The room was very comfortable, spacious and the sherry was well appreciated! The breakfast was of a high quality and much to choose from. It is very near to the inner circle of town, I can definitely recommended this Guest House.

We stayed here for 2 nights while on our honeymoon. We arrived around 7pm and we were shown around the house straight away and led to our bedroom. They have a book with menus of local restaurants that they recommend so we picked one we liked and it was booked for us - great service! We went to De Cameron... More
