This was our second stay at Majeka House, which must say something! We spent 3 nights here at the end of November and chose one of the new pool rooms, which was a great choice. The room was large and we shared a pool with the room next door, plenty of sunloungers for both rooms. We only managed one afternoon... More

My husband and I checked into this hotel and were quite impressed by the service, cleanliness and facilities of this hotel It really does live up to its rating on trip advisor. We were personally greeted by one of the friendly receptionists and the porter as we stepped out of the car. We were then whisked inside and went through... More

Warm Welcome at Majeka House by staff and owner Karine and Loyd who are always present, which I value a lot. Majeka offers stunning accommodation and great value for money. Lovely situated in quiet outskirt of Stellenbosch: Paradys Kloof. My room (nr 103) is fantastic with lots of attention to detail, like European wall plugs (:-)). Free bottled water (still... More

We had a great stay! Breakfast was the most beautifully displayed hotel breakfast ever seen. The hotel is very nicely decorated with a lot of quirky details. We loved the ambiance. The only thing that concerned us was that the staff seemed to be so worried about making any mistakes - like someone would punish them if they did. It... More

Great rooms,great staff, great food. Majeka is a gem in the suburbs of Stellenbosch. Not downtown and not in the vineyards it is an oasis of calm and luxury between the two. An ideal base for a visit to the region or a weekend before or after Cape Town. Room 504 with two balconies is particularly beautiful.

Situated in a very quiet suburb of Stellenbosch out of the hustle and bustle of the town. From the moment we got there everything was perfect! The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing is to much for them. The breakfast was one of the best I ever had, really really excellent! They also have 3 pools which was... More

We stayed here for 2 days and after travelling for a while, wanted a bit of a rest and a nice room. What we got was a gorgeous room, with a view over the mountains, an enormous bath where you can lie in it and watch a film. They provide a lavas a fresh coffee machine, tea and China cups,... More

This was probably the nicest hotel we stayed at during our trip--maybe even ever?? Everything from the perfectly appointed rooms, to the service, the spa, and the restaurant, this was a top notch experience. During the check-in process we got a tour of the grounds and a personal description of everything the room had to offer. The room was spacious,... More

The only downside of this hotel and it is hardly their fault is that it is so far outside Stellenbosch. But then that may be an advantage. The enclave is beautiful with spa and pool and delightful gardens with plenty of bird life (be careful under which tree you sit!). The rooms ar spacious with good air-conditioning and the cuisine...

I was extremely pleased with my stay, friendlty, efficient staff, lovely garden, pool and spa. Original decoration, rather 'quirky' but fun. Room beautifully decorated and equipped. Breakfast 'out of this world' ! Will definitely return
