We enjoy visiting the towns around Cape Town. We sleep over for a night, explore the town on foot and hope to find a good local restaurant before heading home the next day. We know Stellenbosch well. I was a student there years ago. I have walked past this house just across the road from the Dutch Reformed Moederkerk which dates from 1722, may times as a student. But on this wet, wintry night we would be guests! We had a hearty welcome from the staff. The house was beautifully and sensitively restored and altered. We had a very friendly reception and were really impressed with our room on the first floor overlooking the church. The room was spacious and warm. We appreciated the complimentary sherry before heading out for our stroll in the rain. The location is really perfect. We could return to the room to freshen up before going out to have dinner. We decided to return with friends in summer. We had an excellent breakfast before our last stroll through the little shops in town before heading home.
