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 would have rated this as the best hotel in Stellenbosch if it were located in a vineyard. I think that says it all. I went to Del Aire and many other amazing hotels in the area and Majeka has the most soul;l without question. I had a room with a private pool, multiple seating areas etc. it was wonderful... 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. Its in a very quiet residential area, you wouldn't even know it was there. Our package included a 4-course dinner with wine matching - the food... More

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. The staff was... More

This is a small hotel where it all just works. Janice at reception makes it all just hold together and you feel at home Rooms and facilities are interesting and cool and above all well maintained. If you like fancy fine dining, the restaurant is for you. If not, do not expect large portions!

Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights as part of a Garden Route honeymoon and this was definitely the highlight of the hotels we stayed in. The hotel grounds are beautiful, breakfast was amazing (the buffet had a great selection of cereals, fruit, meat and lovely pastries... I can't remember if we had anything from the kitchen). Lunch on... More

We stayed at Majeka for the third year running in February in a pool room. We find the staff friendly and helpful and the ambience more of a home than hotel. The pool rooms are excellent, spacious, light and well appointed. We have rebooked.

We were happy with our four day stay at this hotel, located just outside Stellenbosch. Our check in was a little quirky, and first impressions of our standard room, were not too promising, as you approach a rather basic looking single storey structure with a very cheap narrow UPVC door into the room. Once inside the room was rather dark,... More

Dear Gaspari, Thank you very much for your review about Majeka House. We are glad that you enjoyed the Premier room you stayed in. Because we are in a residential area, there are strict architectural rules and regulations, which does not allow for much room on some of the material chosen for the outside look of the building, We have...
