Friends recommended Majeka House as they knew that we wanted somewhere small but with great food. Wow - the food at Makaron, the Restaurant is amazing. If you stay here you must book yourself in for dinner at least one night or you have missed an exceptional dining experience. We were also told about their new Mountain View Suites and... More

I was in Stellenbosch recently for a friends birthday and he recommended that I stay at Majeka house... It was an excellent recommendation. Beautiful decor, comfortable rooms, warm, friendly, genuinely helpful staff. My only regret is that my wife was not there to experience it. Plan to go back

We arrived in Stellenbosch and we excited to be at Majeka House. The building is lovely, the grounds lovely and the bar/lounge was quite relaxing. We found the main dining room designed as if we were in the 1970's. Bright lights during dinner certainly do not set a mood. Our room was very nice. Quite large with a shared pool.... More

Dear Hadley-Smith, First of all, thank you very much for reviewing Majeka House with such constructive criticism. We have made notes to make sure that our reception knows to inform guests with the correct information, to Janice defence in 3 years of work with us she had never been asked about food delivery and was rather taken aback so she...

I decided to find a place for 1 night in Stellenbosch instead of staying in the city as usual. I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location was excellent and the friendliness of the staff was incredible. I will definitely be staying here again on future trips.

What a lovely weekend. Everything at Majeka house is perfect. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The service is superb, the rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the gardens are lovely. A spa treatment is a must-have.

Decor really quirky. Rooms really comfortable with great pillows. Spa treatments up there with the best. Breakfast wonderful with many choices, the best being the fruit & veggie drinks, the salmon served in small jars on ice & scones with home made strawberry jam and fresh cream. Lovely dinner restaurant with inventive choices. Room service had a lovely South African... More
