From the moment we arrived at this hotel, situated very centrally (but securely) in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch, throughout our stay, until we checked out, everything was just perfect. The reception personnel were all so friendly and helpful. There was a problem with our booking (as the online booking system only picked up our booking for our second night's... More

There are only thirty rooms in this hotel, a mix of traditional rooms and duplex apartments. The lounge and bar are reminiscent of a private club and on the evening we stayed there were no other clients in the lounge and it was almost like being at home with waiting staff. Friendly and helpful staff and a very pleasant place... More

Walking distance to downtown. Very nice rooms on a highway. Only heard traffic all night making it impossible to sleep. It is a shame as people are so nice and place is very comfortable. Sleep however is important.

The position is in the old part of the town, so it is nice for walking there, although far from the trade center. Rooms need renovation. We did not use the spa because of chilly weather - it is not heated. Very good dinner and excellent wine - consult the chef, he knows things!

The rooms were old and needed attention. Only a shower no bath. The lounge was lovely with the fire going. The food in the Restaurant was very good. The staff were excellent. The hotel should be very proud of them. Not sure I'd stay there again.
