Our 17 comfortable en suite Guest Rooms are lovingly decorated and include television with a selection of satellite channels, air-conditioning, hospitality tray, mini-bar fridge, wireless internet access, hairdryer and safe. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in our breakfast room or outside on the veranda overlooking the beautiful garden and vibe filled streets of Stellenbosch.

Bonne Esperance is conveniently located in the heart of Stellenbosch. Our room was superb with a beautiful view of the mountains. We received a warm welcome and the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, including an unexpected room upgrade! Breakfast in their gorgeous dining room with a warm fire was delicious. Their gardens are so lovely. We would definitely stay here again.

Room was spacious, and spotlessly clean. Third daybed was very comfortable with width of a single bed. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was delicious! we will definitely return. Also very central, in walking distance to restaurants.

A friend and I were looking for a spot to have coffee and I've seen the Bonne Esperance sign next to the road several times advertising Coffee and cake. It is such a lovely spot! I can't imagine a nicer place to meet up with friends, especially if you're not keen on big crowded places. The staff ware attentive and efficient. The coffee and breakfast was excellent. They should really list on Tripadvisor as a coffeeshop as well.
