We stayed here for 3 nights and were impressed with the size of our room, the attention to detail throughout the hotel and the helpfulness of the staff. Stellenbosch is a lovely town and the hotel is perfect walking distance for the many shops and restaurants. Breakfast was great; I loved the muesli especially! The only downside was the lack... More

Rayed at this hotel for one night in the end of May. The service, reception and attention to detail was excellent. My room was large and clean. The only negative pout is that it was a cold night but I didn't manage to work out the air conditioning/heating.

Very good personal ambience experienced.The rooms have been refurbished and modernised, yet retain just the right sense of a retro look. Basic room amenities including wifi add to the sense of comfort. I would come back if in the area.

My wife and I needed a central retreat to explore Stellenbosch by foot. Batavia delivered with a great location to town, beautiful rooms and personalized service. Our thanks to Suzanne for taking such good care of us, and the unsurpassed home made Apricot jam. These two Texans will be back. Anne and Andre D.

Stayed here while on a conference at the university. Staff is very helpful. The hotel is in a great location - close to everything. Parking is at a bit of a premium, but they try to cram everyone into the courtyard. We had to park outside the gate as we were leaving early in the morning and didn't want to... More

Batavia is the perfect place to stay in the lovely historic part of Stellenbosch. It's safe, secure, only yards away from all the lovely shops and restaurants in Stellenbosch, but amazingly quiet. Suzaan and Tim, the managers, could not have been more helpful, ensuring that we ate in the best places and saw the important sites. Free secure off-street parking... More

Cathy found this unique hotel while setting up our trip to South Africa and shortly after making and confirming our reservations, my friend and personal trip advisor to South Africa said to be sure to stay in Franschoek. Too late, we were committed to a boutique hotel in the "big city" of Stollenbosch and it turned out to be a... More
