Beautiful settings in the wine valley! We enjoyed our stay on an overnight stay. Magnificence landscapes and views. Speed of service can be improved though (biased stress Joburger) 😜 Wish we could have stayed an extra night to soak in the glory of Stellenbosch.

The Sugarbird Manor is a beautiful place situated right outside Stellenbosch in the middle of farms and vineyards. The view is absolutely amazing. We wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the pool and the magnificient view. The room was very spacious and the bed so comfortable. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly. Absolutely worth the price.

we spent Easter weekend at Sugarbird, our daughter got married at nearby Landtscap. Beautiful boutique hotel, wonderful and helpful staff, tranquil environment, comfortable and clean rooms, lovely garden and pool. Strongly recommended. We took over the whole hotel with friends and family and had an informal dinner prepared by the hotel - exactly what we'd hoped for pre-wedding. Thank you... More

We spent two nights at Sugarbird. It is the perfect way to experience the natural beauty of this region. Our room was large, clean and well maintained. Staff are all wonderful.

This is an idyllic B&B style hotel for Stellenbosch. The manor house over looks the beautiful mountains and vineyards of the area, with a great sitting out area and infinity pool. The owner was very helpful, as soon as you arrive being able to give guidance (and some welcome opinion and humour!) on which vineyards to see and where to... More

Just awesome. A huge self contained apartment within a small hotel. Beautiful views down to Stellenbosch, which is just 5 mins away. Super modern space with shared pool. All brand new with high quality furnishing and finishes. Great chilled vibe.

By coincidence I found this nice and charming place to stay one night before flying home. From the welcome to the farewell it was very enjoyable to stay in this nice little charming getaway. Use the restaurant located 5 minutes away, Devon Valley Hotel.

Sugarbird Manor Manor is beautifully located in the middle of a Protea Farm, just outside of Stellenbosch in the Devon Valley. The surroundings are quiet and peaceful, and the views are to die for. The guesthouse itself is elegant and comfortable, with some interesting modern art. We prefer the spacious rooms on the second floor, but the ones one the... More

Wow, what an amazing, peaceful stay at Sugarbird. The grounds were stunning, particularly the view from the pool, but even better was the customer service. Madre went above and beyond for us and suggested some great places to visit that we loved! Would definitely recommend it. The wheelchair accessible room was perfect for us and even had a shower chair.
