Had a lovely 5 days in Stellenbosch. We last stayed here 2008 before refurbishment. Lovely bedrooms and good breakfast. Central for all amenities. Pool area small if hotel is full. Staff very friendly.

We really appreciate excellent customer service, and although you only have 9 rooms you go out of your way to exceed expectations. From the moment we arrived and were allocated Room No1 (which we believe is the best!), we were given a very personal and unique service from the staff. You truly have a very BOUTIQUE hotel, which provides all the ingredients for a great stay. Thank you for making our first visit to Stellenbosch a memorable one and hope to visit you again sometime in the very near future. Can we also thank you for arranging our half day wine tasting and your own trusted taxi driver.

Room Tip: all the rooms are lovely, however no1 has the sun on it's own courtyard all day

The hotel is located 100m from the city center and still is very quiet! The swimmingpool is for just a very nice dip after a day of travelling. The staff is very friendly, cooperative en professional. They give you a warm welcome feeling.

We arrived after midnight after travelling all day from Edinburgh Scotland to be greeted with the welcoming smile of Suzaan. What a great start to our 2nd trip to South Africa and 2nd stsy in this lovely boutique hotel.
The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and setup will all the required home comforts. Great breakfast and the home cooking that is provided certainly challenges the waist line !!

Suzaan and Hanco are brilliant hosts (and use this word as you feel more like guests in their house) where nothing is a problem or challenge to them. They just want your stay to be a happy experience.

Definitely stay at the Batavia on our next visit.

Thanks again to Suzaan and Hanco.

The staff at this hotel are perfection. They are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast spread is great. The location is probably the best in Stellenbosch, just a road away from the main square of restaurants and shops. The only issue we had is that the pool really is more like a plunge pool.

Lovely place, lovely stylish rooms and lovely service. Perfect location in the center of Stellenbosch. The staff was very helpful in every question. And the breakfast... Deliscios! We staid for three nights and it was so easy to reach restaurants and shops by foot. The hotel has a small safe parkingspace.

Fabulous hotel in a lovely, quiet side street. Great facilities and fantastic rooms. Stylish furnishings in the rooms which are very spacious. Luxury bathroom facilities with a bath and separate shower. Air conditioning also which was needed in the heat. Friendly, helpful staff and excellent breakfast. If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in Stellenbosch that is something a bit special, this is it!
