We came here for 2 nights for my husbands birthday. Knowing Stellenbosch is steeped in history it was a shock to walk into the room finding it so outdated. Obviously the photos of the hotel are outdated. The bathroom experience wasn't nice as the first night there was no hot water. The shower was over the bath which for a... More

Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and large, with 2 bathrooms! It advertises a pool but the pool was very small and the weather was too cold for swimming. The bed was comfortable, but the noise from the traffic outside occasionally woke us up. Location was good relative to shops and restaurants.

All good as usual , but ..........stayed here many times before. Service always excellent , rooms always very clean. Instead of Room 31 , we were given room 26. It's is on a major intersection , so, if like me you are a light sleeper, I would avoid this room.
