“Perfect.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I have just spent 6 weeks staying at 10 Alexander and am glad to say that the service was excellent. The rooms are a nice size and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cater for yourself. On top of this, the breakfasts which are provided each morning are absolutely incredible. Look out for the home-made quiches which are delicious! Additionally, the family that own the guest-house made every effort to make sure we enjoyed our stay. On one occasion, I casually mentioned that I was missing playing the guitar. A few days later, a guitar appeared in our kitchen, which the guest house owners were happy to let us borrow for the remainder of the trip. It was little touches like this that made 10 Alexander feel like a home for the brief time that I was there. I could not recommend it enough.

Had an excellent six weeks staying here. The rooms have everything you could possibly want including hot water bottles and TV with all the sports channels. The kitchens are well equipped also, with all the pots and pans you need to cook with. The hosts are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Breakfast is incredible, in particular the freshly baked scones. It is located close to the centre of Stellenbosch; the shopping mall is a five minute walk away. I really enjoyed my stay and I'd definitely return in the future.

Having stayed 3 weeks here I feel confident in saying it's a great place to stay. It has a very homely feel and all the rooms are very well equipped. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious, a real treat every morning. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thank you very much.

I have stayed here on my occasions and have never been disappointed. I have always felt at home, even if staying here on business or pleasure. The hosts, Wietske and Paul are extremely hospitable and helpful.

The breakfast is beautifully presented with fresh ingredients, freshly baked bread and coffee ‘on tap’. And where have you stayed where there is a hot water bottle in your room for those chilly nights, should you need it?

Centrally located it is easy to take a stroll into Stellenbosch hustle and bustle of art galleries, restaurants and history.

This is my second home.

The guesthouse was perfect, equipped with everything you would possibly need from a hairdryer, heater, TV with awesome channels, utensils, pots and pans, oven, stove -basically a functional kitchen that feels and looks like what you would have at home-. The place was really cosy and the hosts offered top notch service by catering to our specific needs if we had any. Breakfast was probably one of the best parts during our stay, every morning we would be served with a variety of food (somewhat like a buffet), orange juice was freshly squeezed, toast was free flow with very nice and good quality jams, honey, ham, greens. There'll also be a catch to every weekend breakfast, sometimes we'd be served with freshly baked scones, French toast, quiches etc. The convenience of the location of 10 Alexander is also a plus point, the mall is within walking distance and it's also close to nice restaurants. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this guesthouse because of the wonderful service and the accommodation itself was really cosy and clean.

10 Alexander is not an ordinary guesthouse, it seems more like a warm and cozy home for me. The hosts treated their guests as though their family and did more than what was expected for them such as baking of scones, quiche and freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast. In addition to that, there is always a spread of ham, bread, cheese, muesli, yoghurt, available for breakfast and one can be assured that there is more than enough to even pack for lunch. Also, the hosts would often ask whether the rooms and water are warm enough for our comfort out of concern. The rooms are spacious, with wide beds, wardrobes filled with hangars for one to hang his or her clothes. It is a good bonding hideout as the common kitchen is a good place for people to interact while cooking their meals. The kitchen is well-equipped with cooking ware, ovens, microwave ovens, refrigerators and they even provide tea bags for visitors to enjoy. 10 Alexander is just a short ten-minute walk to the mall and supermarket which makes this location very favourable for travellers. Other than that, there are reputable and nice dining places nearby for us.

I had a wonderful experience staying at the guesthouse for 3 weeks with a group of friends. Every morning, I looked forward to having breakfast at the guesthouse. There's always a spread for breakfast- it may include muesli, cold cuts, home-made bread, scones, quiche, eggs prepared in a variety of ways, porridge, orange juice and Rooibos tea.

The hosts were very hospitable. They made an effort to introduce some variation in the breakfast so that we do not get sick of having the same food. It was winter during our stay and the hosts made sure that we were sleeping fine and that we had sufficient blankets to keep ourselves warm at night.

There was a variety of facilities in the guesthouse. We used the kitchen frequently. There was a variety of kitchen utensils and pots and pans that served our needs well. We also had a bbq on one night. We could also watch tv and surf the net at the guesthouse.

It was enjoyable staying at the guesthouse and I would definitely return if I'm back at Stellenbosch.
