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

Spent 3 days at a business meeting retreat at Majeka House. Rooms were tastefully decorated, luxury accommodations. We used the Board Room for our meeting which was the perfect size for our needs.

I've only been here a couple of hours but already love the hotel. Super efficient and professional check in by a reception staff member. Currently sitting having a beer in the garden which is so peaceful and hardly any one to be seen. There are no real views to speak of at the hotel but plenty of greenery to make... More

I went away with my mum for her birthday. We upgraded to the poolside room which was stunning and there was nobody next door which meant he had the private (shared) pool to ourselves.

This hotel is just a short 40 min drive from Cape Town but well worth the visit. Stellenbosch is such a beautiful wine country. The staff in this hotel was not only friendly and helpful, the grounds, room, bar, restaurant were all equally beautiful. It was an escape to what felt like your own private small estate.
