“De Hoek October 2013”

The Guest House is in an excellent location in Stellenbosch. It is well run and the staff are very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are good sized and very comfortable. I will definately be staying here again.

I stayed at De Hoek Manor last week for 1 night with my 2 daughers. Ilse was very gracious and welcoming! They served a delicious and filling breakfast, and the bed was very comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Ideally situated for the centre of Stellenbosch, and ideal for the wineries in the area as well as Franschoek and Paarl. Cape Town is not too far away. Really spacious bedroom and large bathroom with walk in shower. Very comfortable beds, and the turn down service is a nice touch. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A decent breakfast is served, with a good choice of eggs, bacon, sausage etc as well as breads, fruit and cereals. A very big thank you to Ellian (Linke?) when I could not access my case, and she phoned her sister to bring some tools.

we liked it very much indeed, not only the nice room and breakfast area but also the personal care. On top: the location in the old town was very convenient. We can recommend this nice guesthoese warmly.

We stayed at De Hoek Manor for 3 nights so we could tour the Stellenbosch wine region. Everything is a very short drive so it's the ideal location for wine tours - we had a hire car, so planned all our own tours and were delighted with the region and the quality of wines. Stellenbosch is a lovely town, with stunning restaurants and plenty of history, so De Hoek Manor is central to everything. I will agree with some other reviews - the church bells chiming every hour and half-hour does interfere with a good nights sleep. We were upgraded here as well (it seemed everywhere we stayed in South Africa, we received an upgrade!), good value, lovely breakfast. Had a couple of issues - even though we had used our credit card everywhere else, for some reason it was rejected each time the staff attempted to process our payment. After several attempts, we had to withdraw cash to pay from an ATM for our accommodation which added an extra foreign transaction fee to our account which otherwise wouldn't have applied to our credit card. Also, one night when we went to bed, realised we didn't have any toilet tissue in the bathroom, so had to go door-knocking throughout the Manor to find someone who could supply this very important item - they apologised profusely for this oversight the next morning, but it should never have happened. The staff were lovely and helpful throughout our stay and we would recommend De Hoek Manor to all travellers (if you're prepard to tolerate the church bells).

Staff smiling and very helpful. Church across the street kept chiming the bell at all hours and half-hours around the clock. It effectively prevented me from sleep during the night and after four days left me exhausted.
