“Excellent value for money right in the middle of the action”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Surprised by the prime location, quiet bedroom, excellent staff and all for a good price.
Nearby coffee and book shops, plenty of places to eat within 5 minutes walk and historic neighbourhood. We have already recommended to family and friends

I stayed only 1 night at this lovely little hotel in the centre of Stellenbosch. My room was nice although the tiled floors very chilly in winter. The bed was very good, linen and towels good too. I had a shower and a bath and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The aircon worked well as it was very cold that evening so my room was lovely and warm. The rates are great in winter. Breakfast is served in Jan Kats restaurant, the cold buffet was good but the hot buffet not so great. I am not a fan of food sitting in bain marie's for hours and the eggs were congeald and tasted burnt. But other than that I would go back again. The hotel is very well situated, within walking distance of many restaurants, lovely shops and attractions.

Room Tip: I had a room in the courtyard so perhaps in winter rooms inside the hotel would be better.

Stellenbosch Hotel, what a lovely little oasis in the city. Surrounded by funky bars, restaurants and shops (plenty of vegan options for which we were grateful) and amidst a thriving creative arts culture.
We opted for a petit room as we were on a budget and it was perfect for our needs; small and cosy, with an ensuite bathroom and secure parking.
There was no elevator to our room which for a longer stay would have been an issue as we were on the second floor and and a LOT of luggage, but as it was only a one night stay we were not bothered by this and only bought what we immediately needed to the room.
The bed was comfortable, DSTV was unavailable, but wifi worked a treat in the room. The courtyard outside was super cute and the hotel itself had a romantic European feel.
The breakfast which was included in the cost of our room was very generous, we had seconds and it was delicious.
We recommend this hotel as fantastic for those on a budget wanting to be in the middle of a bustling, cultural epicentre.

Friendly, central and romantic place. Perfect for a stop over in this wine area. Comfortable and clean rooms. The suberb cental location means you are within easy stumbeling distance of shops, restaurants and bars. Free car park is very useful. Breakfast is not great but OK for the price.

Charming historic hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch (which is probably the most beautiful town in South Africa). very affordable which serves a mean breakfast. the amenities in the room are clean and there is everything you need for a pleasant stay. Highly recommended .

Room Tip: the rooms are the same and any room will be fine

We didn't actually stop in the Stellenbosch hotel (though it is in an enviable location in the heart of Stellenbosch).

We went to the Stellenbosch Hotel for dinner on the Thursday evening (the first evening after arriving). On a Thursday they have half price burgers (meaning that they are of even better value). The food was lovely (though the steak was slightly small). Nevertheless, our server (Nkosana) was incredibly attentive and supportive.

We returned on the Saturday to watch some football matches. Many thanks to Nkosana and the manager for arranging for the games to be shown.

Generally quiet - though attributed to the time of the year. When we return to Stellenbosch we'll stop here (as much as anything this is due to the support provided by Nkosana - a genuine asset to this establishment).
