I was extremely impressed - it was so clean and quiet and I felt very much at home. The location is great - close to town and to wine farms. And so affordable too. It'll definitely be my first choice when I stay in Stellenbosch again.

We did not know what to expect, but we had a nice surprise. A big, clean room with a shared kitchen in a nice house in a silent area of Stellenbosch. The owner was very nice and available. Great value for our money!

Good location and spacious, comfortable room. It was a bit noisy with the breakfast area right outside my bedroom door but I was up early so it wasn't a huge issue. It is good value for money but I probably wouldn't stay more than a couple of nights.

Magnolia Place is a simple, but very nice guesthouse in a quiet neighborhood of Stellenbosch. Very helpful and hospitabel hosts. The rooms are quiet warm and a little bit old-fashioned, but the value for money is good.

We booked a room at Magnolia Place as we needed a place to spend the night after a wedding at a Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch. Magnolia Place is essentially a huge house with all the rooms adapted to be hired out. Coffee areas, fridges and some of the bathrooms are located in communal areas (our bathroom was in our room though). This is good clean accommodation and is very suitable to spend a night. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic week away, but as a place to rest your head it is perfect. It is also extremely affordable so gives good value for money.

We spent two nights at Magnolia Place and it was what we hoped for, in all but one category: Very friendly and helpful staff, situated at walking distance from 'dorp street', a spaceous room with a classicly themed but still new-looking interior, comfortable beds (best beds of our trip, actually), overall very clean and the breakfast was cozy, made to order and served as a good time to talk to the staff for local information and directions.

Unfortunately during both nights the owner's dog started barking at the gates very early in the morning (somewhere between 3 and 5), which defeated the main purpose of our stay - a good night's rest. This was all probably just coincidental, so you should be fine on your next visit to Stellenbosch. I would definitely book a room at Magnolia's again next time.

Lovely apartments in lush surroundings. Definitely the best place to stay in Stellenbosch. Very quiet and peaceful. Queen size very comfortable beds. Kitchen is well equipped. We stayed only 2nights as they were sold out, otherwise we could have stayed here and driven to capetown every day...
