The Coopmanhuis hotel is situated in one of the classic buildings of Stellenbosch. If you go there with your GPS, be aware that the address is listed as Church Street on their website, but our Garmin GPS listed it by its Afrikaans naam Kerkstraat. Moreover, getting there can be a bit tricky as the direction of the numerous one-way streets in the heart of Stellenbosch was shown by our GPS exactly opposite to what they actually are. Church Street/Kerkstraat is one of the main smaller tourist roads with several restaurants, galleries and gift shops. On street parking is limited and metered, and using valet parking is the best option when coming by car.
While the building is old, major attemps were made to bring the rooms to modern standards. However, in some cases (including our room) you may need to climb one flight of steep stairs to get to your room. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was huge. The breakfast buffet has plenty of options. The in-house restaurant (reservations can be required) was good, and the staff very friendly.
All in all a good base for exploring the Stellenbosch/Franschhoek area, if you like the charm of historic places.
