We rented our own garden unit which was nice and private. It was out of season and the place was quite empty, so it felt like our own private garden at times. Breakfast was good and made to order. Unit had a lounge, bedroom and bathroom, all VERY Spacious, clean and tidy. I would suggest paying some more attention to... More

Elaine went out of her way to accommodate us, as the guesthouse was fully booked for the weekend, and we have already bought the Groupon special on a very short notice. We stayed from Thursday till Monday. The extra length bed was very comfortable and clean. The bath on the photo was replaced with a shower, but we prefer a... More

Weekend Business trip Cape Town had me stay at The Country GuestHouse, with dinner at 96 Winery Road. The service was great and the staff friendly. Rooms well appointed with all needs catered for. Abundance of little critters to see.

We checked in late but had such a warm welcome from the hosts. The fireplace in the lounge and heater in the room kept us warm throughout the night. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend The Country Guesthouse to anyone. We are planning a getaway with friends there next time!

Great accommodation great setting great food very comfortable and staff very good. It was cold weather so can only imagine how good it would be in summer. Not too far out of town but far enough to feel away from it all.

Conveniently placed between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, the guesthouse has well appointed rooms. Ours had lovely views of the vineyards and mountains. Bathroom is modern with fine fittings. Comfortable bed and an outside patio. A little suggestion: floor rugs on both sides of the bed would be welcome.

Well worth your money, breathtaking scenery and a really friendly environment! As a tourguide, I would defenitly recommend The Country guest house! A microwave or heating facilities would be better, but thats just a thought. Thanks guys!
