Great value and great location
My husband and I stayed at the self catering guest house for 4 nights and stayed there 2 years ago for 3 nights. We find the place to be updated and in a great location to easily walk around town. The one negative side is that you can easily hear noise from the hall as people are coming and going but still a great deal for the nice. The guest house manager and staff were all really nice and accommodating. The made many suggestions and coordinated dinner reservations. They are happy to go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We have stayed at other guest houses in Stellenbosch but still prefer this one and would stay again.

Lots of character
Charming property with friendly staff. Room are clean and individually decorated, adding lots of character to the house. The beds are a bit stiff, with cozy pillows and warm linens. Overall great value.

Close to shops and restaurants
Older, quaint room. Tiny bathroom with old vinyl floor. Breakfast not to be missed. Close, walking distance to shops and restaurants.
