We had a great off-season stay at Batavia. Jacques was very helpful from the start and had just the right level of assertiveness. Service in general was very attentive. The room (#1 I think) was splendid -- great bed, spacious bathroom with a jacuzzi -- and the decor of the whole place was beautiful and interesting. Also breakfast was wonderful... More

We stayed in the Batavia Boutique hotel for two nights in order to do some wine tasting in Stellenbosch. We chose the hotel as it was in a good location adjacent to the town and the reviews on trip advisor were positive. We were welcomed so warmly to the hotel on arrival. The owner came out to the car and... More

We stayed at Batavia Guesthouse for some serious wine tasting in Stellenbosch. What a gem of a place this is! The staff are marvelous....with inside tips to some special local vintners, exactly what we were looking for. The owner, Matilda, is so very gracious and naturally makes that extra effort to ensure your stay is PERFECT. I cannot recommend Batavia... More

We chose Batavia out of the multitude of hotels and guest houses in Stellenbosch because of their superior service levels and customer focused attitude, as well as their very central location in Stellenbosch. Rosie and her mom gave us outstanding personal service, even though we only stayed overnight. Breakfast was fresh and personally prepared. We stayed in the Private Studio... More

We had the superior room that had a private patio. We had planned to stay one night, but when we saw the room, we decided to stay for two. We were welcomed with glasses of wine and recommendations of things to see. The next day, not only did we have an excellent buffet and warm breakfast, but the owner brought... More

The hotel is well located in central Stellenbosch with easy access to routes out the town. It is impeccably run and beautifully decorated. The team on duty go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. This is my second stay at this fantastic hotel. I will definitely go back again.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we did vineyard tours and it was perfectly situated for walking into central Stellenbosch and the restaurants. The hotel is small but beautifully decorated and the staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming, with one member of the team even walking to a nearby restaurant to book us a table!

Warmly welcomed to this delightful, homely sanctuary. Our hostess immediately made us feel at home. Breakfast was a delight to the tastebuds and the setting very relaxing. Taxi was arranged for a meal in Franschhoek - a friend of the family, who kindly waited and returned us 'home'. Taxi arrived later than expected to pick us up (hence 4 stars)... More

Superbly located hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch close to restaurants, bars and the soirée which we had come to attend. The rooms are individually furnished with good quality linen and the cleanest shower I have ever seen in my life.quite simply faultless but what made our stay exceptional was the attentiveness shown by Inge at reception.
