We had the best 5 days at the Albarosa, great breakfast and Gert and staff were very helpful! Roons were clean and very comfortable beds, loved the cherry at night on our bedside table. We will be back soon.

We had a great stay at the Albarose guesthouse! We especially liked the fresh fruit bowls at breakfast and the staff was really flexible and helpfull during our arrival and departure. They made sure someone was there during these times.

In a quiet street right around the corner of Dorpstraat. Wonderful, special people took care of us. Comfortable rooms with beautiful books! Walking distance to everything in town and everything felt safe (even in the dark winter evenings).

Unfortunately our visit at the Albarosa hotel was short. The owner was very inviting and accommodating. Great location and an excellent breakfast, meana we would return on our next visit to Stellenbosch.

Amazing, quaint, guesthouse in the heart of Stellenbosch. Run by the kindest people, with perfect rooms for any type of stay. In the heart of Stellenbosch; super easy to walk everywhere. As a guesthouse, they give you more than your average place. I'll never stay anywhere else in Stellenbosch.
