My husband and I spent the night at Batavia as we had a wedding in stellenbosch. I had specially arranged a check in at 10am as our wedding was at 12pm and was some distance away. We arrived at 10.30am and our room was still being cleaned from previous guests which was very frustrating. We were told we had the... More

This hotel is fantastic. Run by Ilsebet and Inge and ably assisted by Derk and others, we felt incredibly well looked after. The hotel is very well situated for Stellenbosch and room was very good. Fantastic stay and will certainly return. The breakfast was excellent as we're all other service aspects.

Lovely boutique hotel in walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room had all the required amenities expected at a 5* establishment. But what sets this hotel above all the rest, is the outstanding level of hospitality offered to guests by the Châtelaine, Ilzebet and her team. Superb.

Very well situated in central Stellenbosch, ideal for exploring this old town. Ilzebet and her team were very helpful and try really hard to make your stay comfortable. Excellent breakfasts. Some constructive criticism. Cupboard and drawer space in this converted garage room was inadequate. Tea and coffee making station impractical. Nespresso machine not working. TV positioning not practical for watching.... More

traveling frequently to Stellenbosch I stayed at the Batavia Boutique Hotel on my recent visit. The friendliness and attention to detail, combined with the excellent location makes this Hotel the perfect place to explore the beautiful sites of Stellenbosch and soroundings. The breakfast was very special and served. (Not the usual Bufffet). A definite on my next visit.

There are lots of wonderful guest houses and hotels in Stellenbosch but this one stands out because of the perfect location and most of all because of Singe (I hoped I spelled it correctly) who is so sweet and makes you feel better than in your own home
