Accommoations were just okay, a little outdated, and not close to town so we had to take an Uber. Breakfast was adequate. I would definitely stay closer to town next time. Host and staff were friendly.
When we arrived ( on a Friday) it was very noisy due to the work at a next door construction site. Less noise on Saturday and quiet on Sunday. Stayed in one of the two premium rooms and the air con did not work ( and it was +35 C outside). I think it is essential for the cleaning staff to check that it works when they prepare the rooms. However the very nice owners tried to help us and the following night we could change to the other premium room as the aircon in the first room could not be fixed until later. Both the premium rooms are large and have SPA baths. But those you can not use to shortage of water in South Africa. Full respect for that but it could be a disappointment if the SPA tub was a reason for choosing the room and you don´t know about that problem. Breakfast is served partly a la carte and was good and plentiful. The honesty bar has a wide selection of wines and soft drinks and there is a secluded small pool and patio where you can sit and unwind. There is a lovely old deaf dog Sam who hangs around and makes it even more relaxed and cozy. As he doesn't hear be careful when you drive so he is not behind the car. Btw you car safe in a closed parking outside the entrance. To the city of Stellenbosch it takes a 12-15 minutes to walk and home when it is dark an uber is strongly recommended. Especially when now and then there is a planned load shedding and the whole city is without power.…
Apple Tree is a great choice to stay in the center of Stellenbosch, where you can easily get an Uber to the wineyards and shortwalk to downtown. We had great recommendations from our host Mark and fell in love with this city. Good bathroom with hot shower and comfortable bed.
We stayed in the apple tree guest house for 1 week. The rooms are very nice and clean and the breakfast they offered was excellent. It is a fine place to stay while you are visiting Capetown and other nice places. Very close to the center of Stellenbosch.
We spent 2 nights there. Lovely cute rooms with en suite bathrooms. Rooms are not very spacious, but adequate. Breakfast was delicious. B&B is only a 10-15 mins walk to the town centre where all the cosy shops and restaurants are. We do have 2 small gripes unfortunately. The wifi here was pathetic. Either we couldn’t get in or it took 10 mins to load 1 page. Apparently Eskom is working on it. But for guests needing internet, a right royal pain. Second small issue we had, was the lights around the pool in the passage way are on all night long, which means we had light shining into our room all night long (even though there are blinds on the door, light still shone in through the cracks). This meant the room was never really dark making it hard to fall asleep.
