we stayed at Majeka House for 2 nights in a pool suite, it was a fantastic room in a beautiful setting. We met both owners who were delightful and helpful, and the hotel itself is decorated in a quirky unique way which appealed to me. The highlight of our experience was probably our dinner at Makaron, which was fantastic, and... More

This was our 5th year and every year we enjoy the hospitality and tranquility of the Majeka house. The best breakfast and always helpful staff. Next year we will be back again for The Shoprite Awards Gala around the corner. The biscotti biscuit and the home made cordial are delicious.

We recommend the Marjeka House. The service was excellent, the room was very trendy, a nice team , delicious meals and the best breakfast that we saw. The area is very quiet and safe. We enjoyed the beautiful garden with the flowers and herbs. In the warm swimmingpool is it very comfortable zu swim after a sightseeingtour.

The majeka house is a very nice hotel not far from the center in a residential area of Stellenbosch. Very quiet, safe and with a very nice garden surrounding the swimming pool.

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
