“Fantastic boutique hotel with everything you want”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

The lodge was comforable and well provided as you would expect from any boutique hotel but what it makes it better are the food, and the indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool and spa.

Our third visit in three years and as usual - absolute perfection.
We enjoy the room comforts, pool and annemities, sumptious gourmet breakfast, lounging at the pool with wonderful attention and service from the efficient and friendly persoal staff.

"I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at Majeka House last week Saturday.
My husband and son really enjoyed their swim, I just love your herb & veg garden, and the breakfast was great!
The premises is lovely, our room was spacious, and everyone so kind."

We spent four nights and five days at Majeka. We loved almost every minute. The food was excellent. The table service very good. Internet service was erratic. Housekeeping could have been more attentive: tissues and towels (in the room, and the swimming pool) were not replenished without request. There was a 'turn down' service at night but little attempt to tidy the room. We had massages, which were excellent, although we would have preferred some restful New Age music to accompany them - rather than jolly Richard Strauss waltzes. All in all, though, a lovely stay. We plan to return.

I stayed with my lady who was lecturing at the University in Stellenbosch, while I was busy recovering from heart surgery. I found the hotel extremely well appointed, service excellent and unobtrusive. We did not have evening meals at the hotel but found excellent restaurants in close proximity. I found there office/computer facilities excellent.

A delightful, relaxing experience with a French flair. Beautiful garden to relax in with prolific flowers and a warm and inviting pool for swimming. Delicious cooked breakfast, complete with home made yoghurt and granola to start. Comfortable bed with luxurious bedding and toiletries. One of the best Swedish massages I have ever had.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
