I stayed with two friends 1 night in January. The cottages are ok but lack one important thing. normal beds. There is one queensize bed in the living which is ok. The second (kids)room has one self man bunk bed. Both those beds are really small (only for kids). The construction is horrible, meaning that one moves, the structure almost... More

The location of the guest house is in a lovely pretty area of Stellenbosch. We were slightly surprised with the room layout, as it was very strange with the shower, basins bath and toilet all being separated. The room itself was 'OK', quite large - we had another bedroom which we didn't need as only travelling as 2). The pool... More

Nice stay in Stellenbosch. Unfortunately was raining when we arrived and was only there for 2 days so didn't get a lot of time to use the lovely pool. Bed was very comfortable and was quiet atmosphere. It's a very nice guest house and breakfast was nice. Has an honesty bar and seems quite safe as does Stellenbosch wherever we... More

Great location in a quiet street just five minutes from the town centre. Very friendly, welcoming and secure. We were three, and the two bedrooms were fine - one with A/C and the other with a big pedestal fan - and with a bathroom and shower/wetroom. Nice little pool, and good breakfasts, too. Fabio was a super host, pointing out... More

The Stables has comfortable clean rooms, some with their own entrance. They are situated in a quiet residential area about a 5 minute drive to the centre. Very welcoming hosts and good information available regarding reataurants etc. Breakfast was fine.

We only stayed in the Stables for one night. Because of our short stay we weren't able to try out all the amenities such as the pool or even their breakfast. However, we still enjoyed our short stay. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. We were most impressed with the service. We booked a room the morning we... More

This past weekend myself, boyfriend, mother, father and our Jack Russell, Candy stayed over for one night. The decor and lighting make the lodge feel really cosy and warm. Its a great B+B if you want to stay close to the central of Stellenbosch where all the lovely restaurants are situtated. Our dog felt welcome at the lodge and she... More

We only stayed for 1 night and had a very nice stay. Located 15-20min walk from town, The Stables is a nice distance away from any noise. A huge bonus for us was that The Stables is pet friendly, on request, and our room was nice a spacious - so rooms for the dogs beds too! There is a common... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and it's a great B+B which makes you feel as if you own the place (could have also been because we were the only guests staying here :) That said - our host Riccardo was extremely hospitable and even gave us his room heater when we felt that our room wasn't...
