We booked for 3 nights. We were showed our room but were disappointed with the outside area which was two bistro chairs on a small patio overlooking a hedge and communal path at the back. We just couldn't see ourselves enjoying the space. We asked to change rooms and they kindly offered us the pool room when it became available... More

Dear Jo2345, First of all, thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. Regarding the room charge, there seems to have been a misunderstanding. When you checked-in our receptionist immediately informed me about the fact that you were unhappy about the room. When I spoke to you in the reception area, you said to me that there was... More

We only have been at Majeka one night, but we really enjoyed it. Top service from all employees and a very nice room with our own pool. Breakfast was excellent, too. We definetely will come back when we are in Stellenbosch again. Tip: check where it is, it is not downtown.

Having stayed at Majeka house before, we thought that we would splurge and upgrade for our most recent visit to the poolside suite. The room promised to offer a semi-private pool, with top notch furnishings and amenities. This was all delivered upon, in addition to the fantastic and friendly service offered by the staff. Unfortunately half way into our 5... More

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

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.
