This is a really upmarket guest house at a very affordable price. The rooms are big and modern with all the amenities. The staff were very helpfull and friendly. The breakfast was one of the best that I have ever had.

We stayed five days in the Summerwood Guest House and we really liked it very much. Very clean, good service, cookies for free, good breakfast and the place in Stellenbosch is also good. We definitely will come back here again. For your bookings: ask for the silent rooms if possible, the building itself is old and not isolated against noise... More

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The surroundings are quaint and relaxing. The staff is very attentive and responsive to the needs of their guests. The rooms are very large and comfortable. The showers are smaller and remind me of those normally found in Europe. If you need to plug in, there is free wi-fi in... More

We spent 2 great nights here just before Christmas. It is close to the centre of Stellenbosch & yet in a really peaceful location. The standard of accommodation is excellent as is the service. Breakfast served outside was lovely and the honesty bar is a nice touch to help yourself to a glass of wine before heading out for dinner.... More

we went away for a weekend to Summerwood to get away from the Christmas madness and we could not have picked a better spot then Summerwood. The place has recently been totally refurbished and the decor is modern and contemporary. But its the little things that make Summerwood so special. The cake, coffee and biscuits made available to guests, the... More

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.
