One night was just not enough! Stellenbosch is a lovely town and the area round about is beautiful. The Summerwood is in a quiet location. The initial welcome was warm and the room was clean and bright with plenty of space. Breakfast was a joy with plenty of choices including fresh cook items. Staff were professional and helpful - arranging... More

We were 4 couples (all family) who attended a wedding outside Stellenbosch. Location wise, it was great. Wedding was at Cavali Estate. Took us about 10 minutes to get to venue. We were very impressed with the size of the rooms which were also extremely attractive. The host went out of her way to make us feel at home, even... More

Actually, quite a few reasons. Spotless, pretty, comfortable, large rooms. Delicious breakfast. Great art throughout. Mainly, though, it is the staff. Totally professional, knowledgable and courteous. We were especially impressed with Tessa, who noticed we had a flat tire; had the gardener change it immediately; then made arrangements with rental company for car return. Service above and beyond. The owners... More

I was doing business in Cape Town and Stellenbosch and needed a hotel that provides fantastic fast internet as well as an environment where I could feel like being on vacation once my business deals were sorted out. I found it! The Summerwood Guest House is the perfect place for that. Inspiring art and a perfect holistic design of the... More

Great location for wine touring and seeing the main down town of Stellenbosch. Close to the university and easy walking distance to great bars and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again! Breakfast was wonderful, they'll wash clothes at no cost and there is great security.

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

My husband and I stayed at Summerwood in July for one night. The staff are very professional and friendly and the guesthouse is immaculate, a credit to everyone who works there. You can mingle with other guests in the welcome lounge which has complimentary tea & coffee and very nice home made cake. The room we stayed in was clean,... More

Deciding on a weekend get-away, we arrived on a cold and wet Friday. Zonia came to our car, parked in secure parking to warmly greet us. She arranged to take our luggage to our and invited us into the lounge for a hot beverage and scones or if we preferred a glass of liquid pleasure, wines from the region of... More

We stayed at Summerwood while attending a conference in Stellenbosch from 14 - 18th July. What a fabulous place. The owners and staff are accommodating and sensitive to requests and the decor, cleanliness and facilities are beautiful and comfortable. Thank you to Tessa, Cornie and staff we were made to feel welcome and the homemade goodies and coffee/tea available added... More
