I stayed at Protea Dorsphuis for 7 nights in April during the SA Closed Junior Chess Championship hed at the nearby Paul Roos Gymnasium. l I chose this hotel mainly due to it's reasonable rates (compared to other Stellenbosh hotels) and it's close proximity to Paul Roos.. I would have given it a 'very good' rating if it was a... More

This hotel bears 4 stars which have not been confirmed during our stay. The room is ok, but worn out. The bath is clean but needs refurbishing. The bed is too small. The hotel itself lays in a quiet street. But there is an intersection (R44/Dorp Street) with traffic lights just behind the hotel. This is the main reason not... More

Our last night on a Thomsons Africa self drive trip. Absolutely superb... A two storey, luxurious room awaited with a little fridge and microwave which could be handy. The pool was great for our 8 yr old as it was heated. Great location and helpful, friendly staff made it even more enjoyable. Thank you so much.

Our last stop in South Africa before flying back home. A lovely hotel close to the centre of Stellenbosch. Our 'room' was actually an apartment which included a kitchen and an upstairs and downstairs bathroom. The door boasted the largest cat flap I have ever seen!

My 2nd visit to the hotel. This time the room was more modern and fully equiped. Apart from all the old rooms and building, the staff give exceptional service. I would definately recommend it to other people.
