“It was OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010

We found this a little dissappointing in comparison to other places we had stayed on our trip. It was just standard accommodation, in a quiet location with a close easy walk to the town centre. The room was adequate and clean, but not in the main house. The room was accessed through the back of the dining room through what I can only describe as an alleyway 'no kerb appeal'.
Breakfast was a little disjointed, as there was only one member of staff to do everything,
If you can make a reservation at the right price then it is reasonable value for money.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2009

Quiet central location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was quite small, but spotlessly clean. Thin walls! Standard breakfast.
Beware deep culverts beside pavements in Stellenbosh. I sprained my ankle badly on the first night of the holiday!
