If you want luxury, stay here. The hotel is beautiful, the bar is epic, and the restaurant is one of the best in Southern Africa. My husband and I arrived here from Namibia, and were overjoyed to find that they have a quasi-indoor pool and a steam room that we could use to get the desert out of our systems.... More

This was truly a delight staying in this intimate and unique place. We especially loved the library, the roaring fire and afternoon/evening coffees and drinks, relaxing in this room. Breakfast was very indulgent, and the staff looked after us well each morning. Loved the special little cakes available.

Amazing! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was outstanding and the sommelier was brilliant with her food and wine pairing. The rooms were comfortable and stylish. We will definitely be going back to spend a weekend in summer.

Recently stayed in the Majeka House for 10 days and had an unforgettable experience. The staff were exceptional - nothing was too much to ask. They really went above and beyond the call of duty. They accomodated my husband's dietary needs as he is Coeliac which we so appreciated. Each evening when we returned we were welcomed with a smile... More

My Husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a night away for our anniversary and what a treat it was.

My husband and I spent two nights at Majeka House during our vacation in South Africa in March. The hotel and rooms are absolutely stunning, and I think the photos don't do the place justice! The outdoor areas reminded me of Yves Saint Lauren's gardens in Marrakesh, and I can't say enough about the beauty of the whole property. We... More

We looked for a relaxed place with an indoor swimming pool, a place that would be great for adults and a 2 year old. We did find this. The room was , the balcony safe and for was great. We loved hanging out in the garden and used the swimming pool several times. The food in the restaurant was amazing.

We had a wonderful one night stay at Majeka House. We stayed in a Mountain view suite which was spacious and beautifully furnished. We loved the heated swimming pool. The decor is amazing and contemporary, the staff super friendly and helpful. All in all we had a great experience and look forward to returning!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
