Sugarbird is a peaceful spot in the Devon Valley, surrounded by some fantastic vineyards. The owners are very friendly and give you the space and quiet to relax. Breakfast was delicious and the staff very attentive. Our room was quite small but very comfortable, beds were soft and the bathroom modern & clean. The swimming pool has a wonderful view... More

Such a romantic tranquil place to stay. Everything about our stay at Sugarbird was perfect. We had a room on the second floor with the most amazing view across the vineyards and devon valley. If you are a lover of wine country you would feel like you were in heaven!!!

Devon Valley is the most beautiful corner of the Winelands and we enjoyed a memorable sunset in the garden. Rooms are big and comfortable, staff is very friendly. You must try the Botanica wines, world class.

Tucked away in the Devon Valley, Stellenbosch, this is the perfect stay for long or short visits to the area. The views are breathtaking and one can see forever! There is such peace and quiet on the first farm in Stellenbosch to farm the national flower, the Protea. The staff is warm and professional and nothing is too much trouble.... More

We cannot reccomend Sugarbird highly enough! The peaceful and stunning location, the breathtaking views, the attentive staff for whom no request is too much trouble, the lovely pool area, the two adorable resident cats! Everything about this place is amazing. If you get a chance stay in room 4 which has glorious views over the valley and a private terrace... More

There was nothing we would like to see changed about this beautiful manor. The view of the mountains from our room was breathtaking. We really enjoyed walking amongst the protea growing areas. Breakfast was excellent and made to order. Also, the staff was great- when I requested an ironing board and iron, the lovely woman at reception instead offered to... More

We will definitely be back to Sugarbird. We stayed three nights and what a lovely place sitting on a hill on a protea farm! Very private, very quiet. We stayed in one of they smaller rooms. Small room, but clean and very comfortable. Wonderful breakfast...everything you would want.

Stayed just one night on business. Would love to return with my family to experience this beautiful guesthouse and the surrounding winelands. A beautiful view from the upstairs rooms and the pool deck lends itself to long tranquil afternoons sipping on local wines and in the winter there is a fireplace in the lounge to keep warm around. Exceptional service... More
