This place is amazing as are Stella and her husband! The rooms are well equipped, so clean and very well maintained. We had a wonderful stay here and really enjoyed the birds, the garden and the view, never mind the home cooked breakfast! All in all a wonderful place that we hope to return to soon!

I decided to surprise my wife with a Valentine's outdoor theatre experience at Paul Cluver amphitheatre in Grabouw and was looking for a place to stay the night. Elgin Valley Inn was only 10min from the venue and proved to be a great choice. Stella was fantastic and so accommodating; always willing to assist and very helpful when asked about other attractions in the area. We will definitely be going back for another stay.

Our stay at the Elgin Valley Inn was an amazing experience. The location was perfect and our family enjoyed the outdoor activities available in the area. Our host, Stella, made us feel comfortable and happy, and everything we needed was always on hand. The standard of the accommodation was five star, and the facilities were perfect. We felt safe and our children thrived as they roamed the nearby area. The views are simply breathtaking and the whole stay was perfect for rest and relaxation in the beautiful South African sun. We would recommend the Elgin Valley Inn to any other families wanted to escape to a beautiful and peaceful part of the world, where they can relax and enjoy the simple things of life; the stunning scenary and natural world around them.

Lovely place with the right ambience and the best breakfast ever. The rooms are very comfy and the choice of breakfast is great. The breakfast was the hit for me and waking up to such a hearty feed got the machinery working to enjoy a day in the valley. Stella seems to have boundless energy and nothing is a problem for her. Highly recommend a stay

Room Tip: The hostess is wonderful

Situated on the outskirts of Grabouw, this very new B&B is perfectly situated for those wishing to explore the Elgin Valley. I was personally going to a wedding nearby, and this place came recommended by friends - how right they are! Stella (owner) is incredibly welcoming and generous - she's always willing to answer questions/queries, and always has ideas to hand for other trips and places to go in the area. Because of how new this place is, breakfast facilities have yet to be installed, so one must head to the Red Tractor Cafe about a mile away. The food is excellent, and you get a lot for your money - I recommend trying a glass of Peregrine Farmstall Apple Juice!
The rooms themselves are huge, perfectly temperature-controlled and all offer a great thing of note - the room I was given had a big balcony with a view out onto the Elgin Valley - a great sight for any morning!
Like almost all B&Bs in South Africa, security is reassuringly tight on the grounds, and I did not feel in any danger throughout my stay.
In short, a great place to stay, and I am sure that in the near future, Stella will continue to expand the facilities - and to think it's near perfection already!
