“Quiet location and close to town. Perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Small guesthouse (4 rooms) in Stellenbosch centre, however tucked away in a quiet street.

The rooms are individually decorated, big and really nice. A hearthy breakfast is included in the rate. A pool is also on the premises, perfect for dipping after a warm day out in the Winelands.

They offer pick up and return to the airport if you don't opt for renting a car.

Strongly recommended, I would not hesitate staying here again.

We were very warmly welcomed by the house staff and the owner, Gerd, on our arrival. The rooms look even nicer than on the pictures in the internet and we felt like home in the sunny, charming room, decorated with many books. Gerd showed us nice booklets about vineyards to visit wich was very helpful for us. He cared for us in a very personal and kind way. We found the price very fair for its location and standard. Absolutely recommendable.

Nice dutch house in the centre of the town of Stellenbosch, at the beginning of the Wine Route. Cafés, bars and shops are at walking distance and are often full of the students of the Stellenbosch University.
The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Each of them has its own style and name. The manager is friendly and helpful, breakfast is delicious (they even have italian espresso!) and prices are good for the quality of service.
