“Perfect for the weekend away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is now our second stay at Kleinbosch lodge, and it was just as pleasant as the first. Kleinbosch is tucked away from the major city, but equally easy to find along the main road, which is very important once you've gone to a wine tasting or two (or three, or five). Thanks again, Hans, for an excellent stay! We'll be back again!

Spacious room and bathroom plus a comfortable bed - but the real credit for our enjoyable 2 night stay must go to host Hans for his genuine hospitality. The breakfasts were tasty -especially the variety of fresh fruit served. The room boasts a kitchenette cleverly fitted into a cupboard , so some self-catering was easy. Situated on a large property you enjoy the country feel, but are onlly minutes from Stellenbosch.

We were looking for accommodation close to our wedding venue, and were very happy with the great hospitality offered to us by Hans. The breakfast layout was exceptional, I really loved sharing the table with the other guests. What a great way to start the day.

Room Tip: Ask for extra blankets if necessary, as the night got very cold.

We again enjoyed a perfect stay at Kleinbosch Lodge! The lodge owner is charmful and a very good host which made our stay very pleasant and relaxing. Our overseas guest couple was on honeymoon and they were very pleased about the 'special surprise' and will never forget their stay at Kleinbosch Lodge. We travelled for 2 weeks in South Africa but the breakfast at Kleinbosch is just unbeatable!! We are already now looking forward to our next stay.

We just spent three wonderful nights with the FABULOUS Hans and his Kleinbosch Lodge. From the time we checked in until the time we checked out we were happy with everything. Do yourself a favor and pay the little bit extra and experience a truly wholesome breakfasts - with German bread to die for ! There must have been over 20 jams to choose from, 15 variants of teas and so on and so on....the hot breakfast is made to order - just tell Hans what you feel like - and he will see to it that it gets done. Breakfast is a very sociable affair with all the guests sitting round one large table - but if you are not the sociable type there is a wonderful tented gazebo (very 'Moyo') where you can sit in peace. My wife is PETRIFIED of dogs and she found the two dogs at the Guesthouse quite delightful and friendly. There is a night watchman who arrives with his guard dog early evening and leaves in the morning - they patrol the ground throughout the night (we came home late the one night and got up very early the one morning) and he was up and about helping us all feel nice and safe. The staff are very friendly and when I asked if I could please have an iron and ironing board - "No sir, just give it to me, I will quickly iron it for you" - now where in the world do you get service like that - The Hilton Hotel? - "That will be $10.00 thank you"...no thanks.... Kleinbosch for us ! We wont spoil it for you - but just saying take note of the notice board when you take your breakfast every morning - you are in for a wonderful little surprise that makes this Guesthouse one of the best !! We made use of the super comfortable (not even in Mauritius did we have loungers like these!) and the sparkling, crystal clear swimming pool with a child friendly area near the shallow end.

Room Tip: We were a married couple traveling with my Mother so we had Cottage away from the main area - VERY p...

We travel to Stellenbosch every year and have stayed at this guesthouse every year. We or family have stayed in every room and cottage and they are all spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are also big. The views from wherever you stay are stunning. We have three children and there is plenty of room for them to run and play and a swimming pool for all of us to cool down during hot summer days. Hans is a great and knowledgable host/owner who knows probably most of the wine farms. We have stayed at Kleinbosch annually and sometimes bi annually for the last six years and all of Hans suggestions whether it is about a wine farm or a restuarant have been superb. Well worth a visit.
