“Lovely guest house”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Great guest house, outstanding breakfast, amazing service, very safe and quiet neighbourhood yet close to the center of Stellenbosch. The rooms are very clean and brand new, nice decoration, apparently the hotel was refurbished recently. Nice large bathroom with a tub and shower, the bed was very large and comfortable.
The owner were very friendly and helpful. I had forgotten a bag in the room and they went out of their way to contact me to get it back to me.
The staff at breakfast is also very nice, and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever seen anywhere.
I would stay there again and recommend it.

Stay here recently for a night after their refurbishment. Really love the decor n concept. Shame it was too cold to take a dip in the lovely pool. Loved the very comfortable beds n should have stay another night in lovely stellaborsch. The breakfast was also delicious one of the best I eaten on my whole trip. Service was of the usual warm n high standard.

The biggest asset is the staff. Tessa was so kind to move us to a ground floor room because I hurt my knee and would have had difficulties to climb the steps to the room that we booked. The room (no 1) was a lovely room, very big and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious and the staff very helpfull. We loved everything and will certainly stay there again. The wine was very affordable. They also made reservations for us at a nearby italian restaurant that was very good.

Room Tip: Stayed in room no 1 and it was lovely.

Our business stayed at Summerwood for a single night in March, We found the Guest house very easily. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and eclectic (modern/comfy). Great service and perfectly positioned within Stellenbosch. Breakfast was delicious.
Only negative: Pillows very hard.

My friend and I completed the Cape Epic 2013, which started with a Prologue on Sunday, 17 March 2013 and successfully completed same on Sunday, 24 March 2013. The race took place in and around the beautiful Cape Province. The days were very long, with typical South African heat and very tiring. When one competes in a race of this nature, sleep and rest is a huge consideration.

We booked at Summerwood Guest House in Stellenbosch. A pleasant guest house, indeed!!! Summerwood is a typical Stellenbosch house that has been turned into a comfortable place, a lovely guesthouse, suitable for a limited number of people in a quite, serene and sweet place. The rooms were fully furnished and air conditioned, some even with its private terrace, a beautiful garden and pool, where you can relax in the evening or get tan in the day. It is an excellent place where to appreciate a glass of good wine and rest after your walk around the beautiful town of Stellenbosch.

Both my partner and I thought that it was excellent, gorgeous decor throughout and my wife even added that the attention to details makes it stand out. It was clean, warm and included a great, healthy breakfast, served each morning.

We would definitely stay there again when visiting the Stellenbosch area. It’s a must see! A little piece of heaven on our doorstep.
