“Our Favourite B&B in Stellenbosch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

My husband and I visited Stellenbosch at the beginning of December and stayed again at Caledon Villa, our 12th time. It is our no.1 B&B in Stellenbosch for a number of reasons: very friendly and helpful staff, the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We stayed in most of them over the years, including the Farao Suite, and they are all tastefully furnished. The breakfasts are delicious. The property itself and the gardens are kept in tip top condition. Although we did not make use of the excellent swimming pool this time, we did enjoy relaxing on the sun loungers.
The location is another plus, as restaurants and shops are in easy walking distance, but as it is in a side street, it is quiet and peaceful.
Last but certainly not least is Johan's knowledge of the area. He is always ready with suggestions as to where to go, what to visit and some of them have become regulars for us that we would have never found without Johan's input. For us Caledon Villa really ticks all the boxes and we never even consider staying anywhere else when we are in the area and we can highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If your budget allows and it is available, choose the Farao Suite.

I stayed at Caledon Villa for 4 days in early December for a work orientation. I had a very comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and accomodating and the BnB itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Stellenbosch for work or leisure.

The rooms are quite unique. The location is good with it being a 5 min walk to the centre. The staff are helpful and arranged a wine tour for us that was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I recently stayed in Stellenbosch as part of a year-long trip around the world, so have seen our share of accommodations...and Caledon Villa is among the best! From a personal pick-up from the bus station, to offers of coffee/tea as we sat reading near the pool, to the cookies and treats set around the property, we felt well taken care of. There in August, we were able to take advantage of their Winter Special (stay 2 nights, get the 3rd free), so the value was excellent. The rooms were cute, spacious with a comfortable bed and great shower. The free breakfast was delicious with juices, fruits, cereal, eggs, toast and more! Location: a very short walk from the center of town, and idyllic for runs near the campus. Above all that, one employee, Barend, was continually going above and beyond to ensure we were enjoying our stay, not to mention he's just an all around great guy. We can highly recommend!

I was really delighted to be booked into this guest house. I arrived late at night after a long flight from Australia and everything was so homely and comfortable and the period decor nicely done with lots of attention to detail. The owner Johan has a keen interest in history and a strong familial connection to the area and was most helpful with advice. The restored Victorian villa is a treasure trove of beautiful pictures (some painted by Johan's talented wife) , historic furniture and other curiosities. The garden surrounds are most attractive including a quaint rooftop garden designed by Johan with an impressive variety of local cacti
Breakfast was good, room service was excellent and everyone was very helpful. Most gracious and thoughtful hospitality. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Caledon Villa has become a family favorite when visiting Stellenbosch. Friendly staff, great breakfasts (healthy as well!), beautiful rooms for families, single people, couples - all themed and decorated in great taste. This Victorian mansion is perfectly situated in Stellenbosch, for visiting the University, local restaurants, and center of town - on foot. It is a family business, and their passion for their guests and business is clearly evident.

We found this treasure in 2009 so of course we booked our stay with John again. This is a most charming B&B. It is centrally located, The rooms are very very comfortable and each decorated differently and charming. The food is outstanding. The best part is the owner. He just loves to help people plan their trips to include everything they might enjoy. He is extremely knowledgeable and all you have to do is ask and he will help you plan anything. His advice is worth the price of the stay.

Room Tip: Just look at the pictures and pick a room that fits your needs. There is a great variety of combina...
