We stayed at the Dorpshuis & Spa Stellenbosch for a wedding at a nearby Wine Estate. Being Prokard members, Protea Hotels is our preferred Group and we're never disappointed with their service. We were upgraded to a luxury room and what a pleasure! The spacious room (with lounge area) was a delight! From the comfortable bed and pillows, the luxurious... More

Suite situated at back of hotel was private, very clean and spacious. Staff friendly and accommodating. Only downside was the noise from passing vehicles, which was quite disturbing throughout the night.

The hotel is a great place from which to explore Stellenbosch. Its close to Eikestad Mall, coffee shops, etc. The heated pool was fantastic and the spa Jacuzzi can be booked for a private experience with your loved one. The kids enjoyed the spacious Deluxe room with stair case thrills! Breakfast was ok but had no halaal options so that... More

two night stay on a tour of the Cape. Good welcome at reception and very helpful, friendly front desk staff and concierge. Room large but didn't use the downstairs part at all. Rooms probably could do with updating. Good location, an easy ten minute walk to town centre. Nice breakfast too.

This is the second time I have had to stay here and both times the experience was not great. The rooms, although big, smell of old cigarette smoke and look run down. There is only a hand shower in the bath and the towels are threadbare. But, the bed is very comfortable. There is also not enough parking inside for... More

Central location makes it a great option, however the images shown are only of the new rooms and not the antique,old, allergy initiating rooms. Hence when booking always request the "NEW ROOMS" and stay away, I repeat, stay away from the old rooms from Rooms 1 - 5.

Dear Sharlene MGovender Thank you for your positive feedback. Room 1 to 5 forms part of our original historical building dating back to 1912.
