I was a Magnolia place for 6 nights and I enjoyed my stay. The room was very clean, toilets and bathroom very fine. I enjoyed the company of the staff especially Berth and Siyas. I will recommend the place to whoever is planning to visit stellenbosch.

For the price you have a good, clean and very well located guest house. This is the perfect spot if you want somewhere to just spend the night, no frills, clean and comfortable. We booked last minute and where all other places were asking ridiculous prices, Magnolia was right on the money. Close to Blaauwklippen wine estate and central Stellenbosch, not walking distance though.

Room Tip: Room 1 can get a bit noisy as it's next to the entrance.

As a party of three, we booked three rooms and stayed over for two nights at Mangolia Place during December 2011, unfortunately I was not impressed by this guest house. Though affordable in price, for R50 more we stayed at a lovely guest house in Hout Bay (also 3 star but with 4 star service and a full english breakfast included) with lovely sea views. At Magnolia Place we did not receive a hearty welcome on our arrival, according to their website all rooms have en-suite bathrooms, however one of the rooms that was allocated to us, you had to walk across the hall to get to the bathroom, it was not en-suite and my friend that stayed over in that room was uncomfortable with this arrangement, seeing that it was next to the owners kitchen and living space, and allowed for little privacy. A self service breakfast was provided consisting of cereals and rusks, it didn't look fresh, therefore we did not eat it and the milk that was provided in the fridge was sour. I will look around for other accommodation next time I need to stay over in Stellenbosch.

We recently stayed at Magnolia Place in Stellenbosch and it was a wonderful experience. It is in Die Boord, which is one of the safest and quietest neighbourhoods in Stellenbosch. It is also not too far from the highway and it is a great place for people who are on business. Each room has its own semi-self catering breakfast nook, which is great if you are a early riser or if you need to catch a plane at the airport, which is not too far away. We would definitely like to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who would like to experience the beautiful town that is Stellenbosch.

We stayed in Magnolia place for two nights in November 2010. We stayed in double room on the ground floor with very small kitchenette. It was a good sized, beautifully decorated room with wonderful furnishings. It was hot when we visited and it did get very hot in the room overnight, but the owners did supply a much-needed fan! It was an excellent price -much cheaper than anywhere else we stayed which was good value for what you got. Breakfast was available in the room; it was simple but as expected for the price we paid.

However, Magnolia Place was unusual compared to other guest houses we stayed at on our trip. We were greeted by a young lady who took our money and showed us to our room but that was the last we saw of any staff/owners at the property. I accidentally broke a plate but was unable to find anyone to apologise to so ended up just having to leave a note and a some money on the pieces of broken plate on the day we left! We didn't see other guests either so it did feel a little isolated.

Location: The guest house is in a residential street just outside the centre of Stellenbosch. Secure parking. There are convenience shops in a little complex near the health centre which is very useful. It's not walkable to the centre of Stellenbosch, however, it's a fairly easy and short drive into Stellenbosch. We booked a wine tour and they were happy to pick us up from here - although had never known tourists to stay in this area before!

We would recommend people to stay here but you need to be aware of what you're getting and not be expecting a 'traditional' B&B/Guesthouse!

This is a very clean guesthouse which had everything we needed for our stay. The room we stayed in was large and had a sofa and a desk. The communal kitchen had the necessary items you would need to cater for yourself. Breakfast was DIY with juice, cereals, milk etc available in the kitchen. There is secure parking and a nice garden although the rain meant we did not venture into it. The owner is helpful and suggested some restaurants to try.

The only negative was it was very cold in the room as the only heating was from a small electric radiator, which wasn't powerful enough for the unusually cold winter weather.
