Cannot fault the hospitality received - nothing was too much trouble. Clean and comfortable with a great location without the noise of the town. Very close proximity to Lanzerac as well as the town centre.

We loved our stay at The Stables Lodge in Stellenbosch. Our son was playing in a rugby tournament and we just needed a place to stay for the night with our 2 boys - and needed a B&B with inter-leading rooms. Stables was a great option, a gorgeous room with everything we needed, separate (but inter-leading) room for our boys.... More

The reason our stay at the Stables Lodge has been so nice, is mainly because of the hospitality of Ilaria. She is a very heart warming person and always willing to give advise for activities in the surroundings. She's even recommended another nice accommodation near Addo Elephant park.The apartment is clean and very nice decorated. I will surely recommend to... More

We spent about two weeks in the Stables Lodge. First of all I would like to thank Ilaria (the owner) for her hospitality. She speaks to every guest and shows sincere interst, gives advices, directions, provides maps, etc. This is very helpful. The location of the guest house is excellent: very close to the town center and in a quiet... More

Rooms were great! Very nice bathrooms and facilities and very warm in the cold weather. Internet worked well and rooms were nice and private. Only negative is that it is a bit of a walk from town… I would say about 20-30 minutes to most of the restaurants so keep that in mind. It is in a great neighborhood that... More

Thanks Ilaria for a great stay-over in Stellenbosch and I will definitely return. Good location near the town and a good base to explore the town and surrounding wine farms. Great to have our own entrance and easy to access. Tasty breakfast and good attention from the owners.

I stayed with my 11 year old son. Ilaria was very friendly and helpful. Location was great, quiet but close to town. It was a little 'old' in that some things didn't work perfectly -front door got stuck a lot, bathroom door didnt track easily - a bit annoying trying to get it open. But for a 3 star, I... More

Worst pension on our journey of 4 weeks through South Africa. Too expensive, poorly furnished small room, sink in the room, no tv, no swimming pool, minimal breakfast and yet 1300 ZAR per night. Never go.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review, we always appreciate when our Guests find time for it. I appreciate suggestions, tips to improve etc but not sentence like "the worst pension in 4 weeks in South Africa". I am personally taking care about the Guest House from august 2008 and it is not necessary for me to prove that our... More

A warm welcome and a small quaint B&B with pleasant staff and nice breakfast, but, the "cottage" is not somewhere we will return to! More like a garden shed than a room, it creaked and groaned all night as the wood contracted but the worse thing about this "room" is the 6ft high fence within touching distance of the shed... More

Lovely place, friendly lady who owns here - she was extremely helpful to us and another lady staying and nothing seemed too much trouble. We did find the place a little hard to find and we chose to walk into Stellenbosch for dinner which was about 30 mins (a nice safe walk though). Place was clean and had nice decor.... More
