      My son and I only stayed overnight but it was really very comfortable with secure off street parking which was what we needed! And close to everything in Stellenbosch. Excellent for parents visiting students!

    • Group of friends

      Nice and friendly staff. That were always eager to help if they can.

      The room that I stayed in no 6 was a bit on the small side.

    • Single

      It was clean, comfortable, quiet, and in really lovely surroundings.

      The bath was rather elderly! Could do with re-enamelling, maybe....

    • Couple

      It was a lovely, comfortable stay. Value for money.

      The hotel staff member on the Sunday was not very friendly, which was very disappointing.

      As above + very nice breakfast.

      Room very small. Our verbal and written request for an extra single bed for the toddler had not been arranged. A surcharge was levied for the larger room when this had not been indicated in any of our telephonic or written communications. We made a block booking for two double rooms and one single one. We cancelled the single room two weeks in advance, believing that this was an adjustment to the block booking but we were chared a cancellation fee. One receptionist was somewhat curt and unfriendly but the other one was professional and very pleasant.

      The location is great and I like the homely feeling of the Guest House

      We stayed in Room 3 which is linked to the room next to us. The door of our room linkes with the bathroom of the room next to us. Because they have a thin interior door between the rooms you could hear every drop of water in the bathroom next to us. It was very uncomfortable and at times embarrasing to hear every noise from the bathroom and room next to us. The people were not very noisy, but the insulation non existing. The one peson at reception was very friendly and helpful, but the person on duty when we checked in is very unprofessional. When we arrived she was chatting to another guest about trivial matters and kept us waiting for about 10 min without even acknowledging our presence or just greeting us and asking us to wait a while.

      location - being able to walk everywhere

      the noise - other guests and staff and the bright light outside my room

      Centrally located, quiet street

      The hotel staff was very unfriendly. Breakfast only starts at 08;00 and was inconvenient due to a course that we attended.

      Central but quiet

      I would suggest that a spray can of mosquito repellent be provided as a traveller one does not really expect to find mosquitoes in Stellenbosch

      Friendly, excellent staff, very good breakfast,excellent value for money

      Steep steps!

      Good location in Stellenbosch

      Sheets were very dirty with all sorts of body hair all over the sheets. When we asked the hotel staff if we could have a change of sheets, she first questioned us, offered no apology and proceeded to just give us a stack of "clean" sheets to change ourselves. Overall, staff was pretty rude and tried to excuse her behavior by saying she was so busy.

      i was very impressedwith the accomodation and cleanliness of the guest hotel. Staff great and breakfast great.

    • Couple
      7.0

      The room was very quiet and comfortable. There was ample parking and the location is GREAT for experiencing the town. The front desk was efficient and helpful.

      Our bathroom flooded every time we used anything in there. It then wouldn't dry in time for our next shower. During breakfast the staff would also be really loud in kitchen and reception area, so it was not nearly a peaceful experience.
