10 Alexander is by far the best guesthouse we have stayed at during our travels in South Africa. The en-suite accommodation was very nice and convenient, with a well appointed kitchen one could use, and great views of the mountains from the balcony. The breakfast was superb, the host very welcoming and helpful, and the price was very reasonable. We would have liked to stay longer.

I stayed in 10 Alexander for 6 weeks and I got a very warm welcome by the owners of the guesthouse. From day 1 the place felt like home. The owners were very friendly and supportive which made the stay very enjoyable. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here as it is in a great location and it is an amazing place to stay. From the guesthouse you can get to Cape Town on the train or walk into the central shopping centre of Stellenbosch. The rooms were cleaned to high standard every day and the breakfast we had every morning was delicious!!!!. We got a great selection of cereals, breads and jams. Quite often the owners would also prepare things like scrambled egg, bacon and sausages for us. A favourite of mine was the french toast, grilled bananas and bacon. The kitchen was well equipped and the owners were always willing to provide other utensils that you needed. If I went back to Stellenbosch I wouldn't think twice where to stay. If you want somewhere to stay then look no further...10 Alexander is the place to stay!!!

Having stayed at 10 Alexander for 6 weeks this summer, I would highly recommend it to others. The rooms were spacious and very clean, with lovely en-suite shower rooms. The cleaners were in every week day, which we did not expect and was a very pleasant surprise! The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to easily cook our meals. The choice we had for breakfast every morning was unbelievable, a huge variety to suit everyone, cold food and hot food. Cereals, bread and jams, eggs, bacon, sausages, quiches, fruit salads, guava, scones, muffins, French toast, banana fritters... The owners were extremely friendly, always ensuring that everything was perfect during the stay and happy to help with anything you needed, whether it was about the guesthouse or things to do in the area. Location was fantastic, very close to the shopping mall. All going to plan, I shall be returning in the future, and I very much look forward to it. Thank you very much Wietske and the team for everything!

I stayed in 10 Alexander for 6 weeks this summer and thought that it was very good. The rooms were of an adequate size but had everything that you would need in them with a good sized bathroom and shower as well. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a table where we could sit down and eat together as well. What made this quest house stand out though was the friendliness and support of the owners. They cooked an amazing breakfast for us every day for 6 weeks, and went out of their way to make sure that everything was always ok for us. I would really recommend 10 Alexander as you know that you are going to be looked after!

I stayed in 10 Alexander for 6 weeks this summer and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. It is in a great location in Stellenbosch, just a five minute walk from the central shopping centre. The rooms and kitchen are well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Breakfast every morning was amazing with freshly baked bread, scones, quiche and fresh fruit salad! The owners are extremely friendly and go out their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to return in the future!

I stayed in 10 Alexander for 3 weeks and I can definitely say I couldn’t possibly ask for more. I looked forward to the amazing breakfast every morning. There was always plenty of freshly baked bread, quiche and scones. Just what I needed to start my day. The hosts were extremely friendly and always went out of their way to make sure we have a pleasant stay. It felt as though you’re staying with your relatives and not just some impersonal guesthouse you’d encounter in most places. During our stay, we had access to the kitchen which was well equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and the guesthouse is conveniently located too. This review doesn’t do justice to 10 Alexander! You’ve got to experience it first hand and I’d recommend this guesthouse to anyone who plans to visit Stellenbosch.

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.
