The large, comfortable room had a patio with a lovely view over the vineyards. The spacious, light room is well appointed & was beyond our expectations. Best of all was the Christmas Eve dinner we ate at the restaurant - well thought out menu & absolutely delicious. Thank you!

We were visiting friends who stay nearby so decided to book a stay over at The Country Guesthouse. Our arrival was very friendly and welcoming by Elaine. The room was clean and comfortable but the decor is plain and no shower gel. Lovely and tranquil in a pretty setting. Nice breakfast.

Lovely Place. We rented the family suite: 2 Big bedrooms, small kitchen,and private outdoor sitting area. Grounds are well maintained and staff is very pleasant. Note: location is not in Stellenbach proper, once you arrive, plan to stay. Eat at their restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent suites and friendly people makes this the best place to stay between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. There's an excellent restaurant on the property which means you don't need to drive at night. And you're on a vineyard with tasting cellars within walking distance. And off course you are centrally located for the Cape winelands. We highly recommend The Country...
