We were two couples - one from Tanzania and one from Scotland - and our first destination in the western Cape was Aan Dorpstraat. We picked this guest house on the strength of other reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. We chose Stellenbosch and Aan Dorpstraat as our first port of call as we'd travelled fairly long distances and it sounded like a very relaxed place to start. Our initial contact with Gwen when making the booking was extremely promising. She couldn't be more helpful. When we arrived at the guest house it was obvious that it wouldn't take long to relax. It's a tranquil location away from the main street; but walking distance from the centre and lots of restaurants and shops. Johan and Gwen are simply perfect hosts. Gwen falls over backwards to make bookings for restaurants, show you wine maps, book taxis when there is a lot of wine involved... Johan makes a mean breakfast. The smell of freshly baking bread has an unresistable draw in the morning despite the comfort of the beds. The rooms are incredibly comfortable with everything you could possibly require - down to the cookies with tea and coffee. Lots of personal touches. Just remembering the nougat... Lots of chat with Gwen and Johan around - breakfast was a a happy event every morning. This is just a treasure of a guest house and a perfect base to visit Stellenbosch and surrounds. Nothing is too much trouble for Gwen and Johan. They got our holiday off to the perfect start.
