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

The Manor boasts a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere filled with colorful flowers, tastefully decorated rooms and sitting areas, delicious made-to-order food, plus award-winning Botanica wines made by the owner herself!

Our only disappointment was that we only stayed one night whilst passing through. They do not do evening meals but that doesn't matter in an area with an abundance of eateries!

Situated on a working Protea farm in the midst of the Stellenbosch winelands, this place is very central with beautiful views of the mountains. The rooms are quint and provide you have a mountain facing room - the view from your room is amazing!

You will be hard pushed for a better view from most accommodations. Beautiful. We stayed for two nights. The room we had was spacious and comfortable and lovely to be able to admire the view while lazing in bed. Plenty of wardrobe space and a very large bathroom,(not sure the nude portrait is ideal!) tea and coffee facilities in room.... More

Found in a rather mountainous area of stellenbosch the sugarbird manor is very pleasant if you enjoy nature, amazing views and some very private time with your loved one. It's a 10 minute drive to the center and the staff is very helpful and nice. I can recommend having the breakfast on your balcony facing the pool (best view). We... More
