“Fynbos, a home away from home!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I just felt at home staying in Fynbos. The admin staff, the kitchen staff and the cleaning staff did a great job! I will definitely come back in the future. The location, value and sleep quality were excellent, and the service, very good!

Fynbos is on a quiet street with several B&Bs that is an easy walk from the downtown area and the south end of the university. It has about 15 rooms in two-and-a-half beautiful older buildings surrounding a quiet back courtyard where there are plenty of places to sit. (There is also a swimming pool.) Each room supposedly has some special individual character. The one I was in was very comfortable and pleasant, and scrupulously clean. The security arrangements were excellent. The bathroom was very nice indeed (some Americans might want to bring hard soap; they provide all liquid soap products). The daily breakfast is good and can include eggs and meat cooked to order; the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: I got the impression that rooms in the large extension and the separate building along the sides of...

Fabulous few days spent at Fynbos. I brought my daughter to Stellenbosch University - the staff accepted all our boxes from the courier and nothing was ever to much trouble and everything was done with a smile - will definately be back.

In a great location and a very comfortable guest house. Only a 10/15 minute walk into the centre of Stellenbosch and close to some great restuarants and bars, but in a very quiet area. The breakfast was very good and made by a very cheerful and attentive lady! They also gave great dinner recommendations. Would highly recommend so anyone staying in Steelenbosch!

Very good location: quiet and central. A big plus was the secured parking. Nice little pool with clean pool towels every day. Very friendly staff. The room was a bit small with old fasioned furniture.

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for staying at Fynbos Villa and taking the time to review us. Our location (minutes away from the university and town centre, but still in a quiet residential area) and free, secure parking is two of our many drawing points. I am also glad that you enjoyed the pool. As the Guest House is a national monument, the furniture is antiques to maintain the character of heritage and our guest mostly finds this charming.

We look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

I am happy with the stay. The kitchen staff made the stay even more comfortable. It was home away from home. The reception was magnificent. Thank you for the WIFI. Keep up the good work Fynbos.
I enjoyed the peace, the lovely music you played at the lounge the and dining room. I loved the space in the rooms. I enjoyed your coffee.
