Unfortunately our room opened on to a lounge / reception. We had to ask twice for other towels as they smelt. Our bed was old and the headboard was full of chips in the paint. The electrical could not have been compliant. The breakfast was quick and efficient. The location was also good. The room was not ready when we... More

Excellent location situated in the heart of Stellenbosch. Staff and amenities were very good with all facilities more than adequate for the business traveler. Also offers tremendous value for money for what you get.

Strategically located, you can go around this quiet town and enjoy everything, you will need a car od book on a tour to get to the vineyard. I heard there's backpacking tour or solo to go around the vineyards. Small, cozy and quaint. Staff are hospitable and great.

I had a very nice stay at this guesthouse in the heart of Stellenbosh. Initially I thought that the room might be noisy because the guesthouse is situated in the hub. On the contrary, I slept peacefully in a clean and spacious room. Breakfast was substantial. The first evening I had a problem with the excess to the parking bay... More

I had a fairly average stay at this guest house. It is well located and nicely decorated to give a true colonial era feel. The downside was a truly uncomfortable bed of which the mattress desperately needed to be replaced. The bathroom and especially the shower was not clean and had mold growing. Otherwise its a good deal for a... More

de Oude Meul Guest House was just a quick stop over for us on route to Cape Town. We could not have asked for more than the warm welcome we received, clean and cozy room and delicious breakfast. A vase of fresh flowers next to the bed, Plunger with delicious coffee available and lovely homemade heart-shaped biscuits. A real little... More

we really enjoyed our stay. Oude Meul is ideally situated for those who wish to explore stellenbosch on foot without ever wondering far from the comfort of your bed. Even though you are almost in the dead centre of town, our stay was peaceful and we will definitely be returning soon.
