* rooms are clean, fresh and tastefully styled
* kitchenette is available for own use
* excellent breakfast with a variety of fresh fruit and breads
* secure parking

Personal note: Penny and her family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and
were very helpful with hints and directions being newcomers to town and the university.

Stunning, away from the rush but close enough to enjoy a night out in the Mother City. Waking to birdsong and the smell of freshly brewed ground coffee or the odd homemade chocolate cookie or a true South African rusk. Breakfast is served downstairs either outside on the "stoep" during summer and beautiful spring time or inside looking out into the garden during winter. Staying in for the day is like staying home, a pool to lounge by and plenty of nature joining in. Rooms bright and sunny, crispy clean and spacious, private bathroom, either with shower & bath or as you wish just a shower. TV, internet all there just for you.
Knowing this family, I highly recommend Penelope's B&B, I know that no request is too big or small. And she cooks like a demon.!!! not leaving Dries out, he certainly knows how to do the good old trusted South African braai. Of course don't forget you are after all in the middle of the best wine lands in the world. Of course there is wine and plenty of the best. ENJOY your stay. We did!!!

A great deal of care has been taken to make this guesthouse comfortable and tranquil. Penny and Dries are attentive hosts and one feels you are a personal guest in their own home. Sip a glass of wine in the delightful garden, which is Penny's pride and joy, and admire the mountain views that are so characteristic of Stellenbosch. This is a special place in a special town.
