Location, guest house
Wifi wasn't working at guest house Breakfast was 4/10
Breakfast on the veranda, friendly and helpful staff, location, garden.
Room was a bit small, which might be expected in a historic property. Can't remember if the air conditioning was cooling properly. I think the room was a bit hot for part of our stay.
A pretty, atmospheric, well-kept guesthouse with lovely gardens and stoop to relax in. Very nice rooms and friendly, helpful staff.
Everything, especially the breakfast.
Can't think of anything.
Friendliness of staff
Room wasn't made up in time on arrival (post 14h00 due to a "laundry delay" this was irritating. We did receive a complimentary bottle of wine, however.
easy walks to great restaurants. Well kept. quiet location and helpful staff
Situated minutes walk from the centre of town this quaint guest house offers oodles of charm and character. The rooms are almost period style suiting the house perfectly still offering plenty of comfort and all the amenities of a modern guest house. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was especially lovely to enjoy on the patio over looking the garden. A very pretty and pleasant stay which I would be happy to repeat. Stellenbosch is a beautiful area to visit, the shops, cafes and restuarants some of the best I feel in South Africa
We enjoyed the stay very much. The staf were helpful and friendly. The room nice, clean and tidy, and the atmosphere was romantic.
We only regret that we couldn't stay longer.
Studios were well equipped, tastefully furnished and located in walking distance to the centre
lack of toiletries (no soap or lotion)
-character of the house and gardens -friendliness of staff -location in the top 3 of accommodations we visited during our trip to SA (out of 12).
Beautiful comfortable rooms. Friendly welcoming staff. Quiet environment. Great location.
Can't find a thing, honestly.
Hotel staff is extremly friendly and helpful. Room and hotel overall is quiet nice. Breakfast is just amazing ... cannot praise it enough. If we come to Stellenbosh, we would stay again with you!
We could walk to restaurants and graduation ceremony.
the location was amazing, we did not need to hire a car for our stay.
The breakfasts were excellent, and one can eat out on the covered porch overlooking the garden, which is charming; the location is excellent, for the place is relatively quiet even though it is on an important street; the staff are friendly and helpful; and there is off-street parking, at least for about eight or ten vehicles.
Our room, #2, which was 'small double,' was slightly stuffy, even though it had a very high ceiling. I would be happy to stay in this hotel again, but next time I think I would get a larger room.
We stayed in a studio apartment away from the main guest house. Beautiful decor, very comfortable bed and as a plus filter coffee in the room.
comfort of the beds and efficiency of the wifi
The breakfast was not too good. Also, limited options to choose from were available to the guest. This is an area that needs improvement, others very very good place to stay. Godwin Akper
Everything. A wonderful, friendly and helpful hostess. The room was delightful and the bed was so comfortable. A charming Guest House. Made to feel at home.
The location, the house style and its garden, the Ladies' kindness at the reception
The noise from the other room A/C, the lighting in the bathroom
I liked the architecture of the house and the interior design. We had a small room with out door access to the quit backyard with swimming pool and sun beds. Great service. Nice garden. And there is parking spaces.
Great location, very central. We stayed in the studios - they're brand new, very clean and comfortable.
- location (restaurants and shops are walking distance. Looking for a good restaurant? Go to wijnhuys). Bonne esperance recommended us to go there. - The vineyards are close to Bonne esperance. Bonne esperance assisted us with organising a "hop on and off wine tour" (either personal guided or non guided tours) - Bonne esperance has a beautiful garden, very relaxed. Good breakfast (you can sit outside on the patio or inside. Order your eggs the way you like it) - WiFi was good - staff were friendly and assisted us with our trip
- not all tv channels worked
