Planned to stay here for 2 nights as a base for exploring Stellenbosch but left after one. Had a room at the front of the hotel above the coffee shop. Traffic went through the crossroads outside constantly through the night, and the coffee shop below began their work up at 6 in th emorning. To top it all, we found a cockroach in the bathroom - not unusual for a city hotel, but the apology and lack of discount offerred the next morning did not impress. Lovely in-house staff and great breakfast in the coffee shop, but can't recommend this place as good value for money. If you do stay, request a room at the back.
