Finally tonight, I will sleep well, knowing this well-deserve review is complete. My wife and I visited Stellenbosch back in January for our honeymoon. This home and it owners... More

This is my third visit to Aan Dorpstraat Guest House and once again I was not disappointed! This time I stayed in a little tucked away room at the top of the stairs in the front of the guest house - one that is not often available - and I loved it. I felt like I was perched in an... More

Excellent accomodation close to the center in a safe area with most friendly hosts Gwen and John. The room is beautiful with very good beds. The Wifi works well. The breakfast was superb. Gwen and John give you all the services you may need.

Gwen and Johan really, really care that you enjoy your stay (and are very good at making sure that you do). They provide the staples; a great bed, and a great breakfast, and arrange everything else for you (after discussion, of course!).

My wife and I stayed with Johan and Gwen at their delightful establishment - and what a treat it was - well appointed, spotlessly clean with the best quality fittings, soft furnishings and linen, and absolute attention to detail made this a memorable and extremely comfortable stay. And the personalized and friendly service from our hosts was outstanding. Centrally situated... More

Very clean, beds & linen excellent. Accommodation is to a high standard with good facilities (air con, fridge, shower & bath …). Good location, central to Stellenbosch.
