“Charming family run guest house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

10 Alexander is a family run guest house in a nice part of Stellenbosch. It is 5 minutes walking distance from the tourist information office, 10 minutes from the town center, 20 minutes from Stellenbosch University. With its garden and a private pool it has a charming atmosphere. The hosts Wietske, Paul, and Meike are very helpful and do what they can to make your stay enjoyable. They offer a wonderful breakfast of English or continental style which you share with the other guests at the family table.

The booking was one in a series of overnight stops through winelands and along garden route. It turned out to be one of the best: a very warm welcome, secure off-street parking, comfortable bedroom, nice pool, short walk into town with many good restaurants, excellent breakfast and plenty of help with onward itinerary and places to visit.

Would thoroughly recommend 10 Alexander as THE place to stay.

The room was really clean, big enough, and with a lot of windows. There was also airco and a tv. WIFI was also possible. My bathroom was just outside my room. It didn't bother me. The people who don't like this, can take another room with a bathroom inside the room. The shared kitchens have everything you will need, like an oven, toaster, ...

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a bathroom inside their room. Maybe that could be a problem for some people. But...

Very nice B&B. We were lucky to find a place in this B&B, because all was fully booked in Stellenbosch. The rooms are spacious and the beds are good. Especially the breakfast is really good, don't skip it!

The breakfast was plenty and good. The room was very clean and it is quiet there. The service was good and the hosts are very friendly. Parking is possible and the accommodation is located centrally. You also have the possibility to swim.

Thank you for the nice review. I am sure that the swim, while people are freezing in Germany, made a huge difference.

We were there for only one night. The place is very clean and comfortable.
We are recommending the place to anyone, who wants to stay for few days while touring the wine places. We will certainly stay there again in our next visit in Stellenbosch.

The B&B is very comfortable, although we were only there for one night the owners were very helpful to us and made us very welcome, the breakfast was delicious. A very good place to stay if visiting the wine region, wish we could have stayed longer.
