Just stayed for two nights at this guesthouse, which is adjacent to the restaurant 96, Winery Road. (See our review) Although it was relatively clean it was a little stark & soulless. Lacking the personal touch we have received elsewhere in The Cape. Our room needed some TLC.

This is a lovely place that is very well situated close to the R44. It is familiar with a warm atmosphere and you feel relaxed an at home right away. Its perfect location makes it easy to make trips during the day and if you dont want to leave in the evening the restaurant is fantastic. Good parking and good... More

Rooms are of varying size and have different amenities. Some with showers some with bathrooms and showers some with views others rather dark. Some with very large double... More

Thank you The Country Guesthouse for a lovely stay. We have been going there time and again when visiting the Winelands from Namibia. Each time we have such a pleasant stay with the friendly staff and wonderful setting of this guesthouse. Nearby almost everything (very central). The rooms are nice and spacious and very clean. Breakfast under the old Oak... More

Ancient oak trees set the tone for a fabulously relaxed weekend at The Country Guesthouse. The Family Suite was absolutely perfect for us and the (very large) private lounge made the perfect setting for Saturday afternoon Springbok rugby. The rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and the beds incredibly comfortable. A glass of red wine on the porch... More

Set on a wine farm between Somerset West and Stelllenbosch, the views are fanatastic and the accomodation neat and clean. The attraction is the 96 Winery Restuarant which serves top class food at a reasonable price, it was a real treat for us! Areas for improvement include the gardens which are slightly overgrown and the room surrounds which are showing... More

We staid there for a short trip to the Cape area. Most of the rooms are renovated! A friend stayed at nr. 4, brand new! Cool room! We stayed at one of the family suits and it was big, clean vintage style! No complains at all! Breakfast, cheese in the evening, although it was off duty time, was handled perfectly... More

I’m going to try and keep this constructive. Me and my mom went on holiday and stayed in 4 places, it was supposed to be 3 but since Zandberg was so bad we checked out. We did not want to end of our holiday there. Apart from being the most expensive place we stayed at R1200 per night it really... More
