My wife and I had a brill time at Bonne E just over three weeks ago. The support staff and management were excellent. The interior is breathtaking.....what a surprise...just brill. We had such fun...... from Mr Important!
Breakfast was excellent and very friendy staff.
There is no power point fot the hairdryer aat the dressing table.
Great location, only minutes walk from town centre and all restaurants. Beautiful garden and lovely veranda to sit and have breakfast in the sun. Always a lovely smell coming from the kitchen, very cosy place.
Jan was very attentive to our needs and quick to show us to our room and explain the various procedures. Also, he was more than willing to help direct us to suitable restaurant for dinner. The bed was fantastic and COOKIES were amazing
Being able to walk easily to and around the city. Access to the swimming pool on one very hot day.
Everything! The house itself is gorgeous. Our room (street level) had 12-feet ceilings with mouldings, nice furniture, and was very clean. Cheap mini-bar in the room. We used the same-day laundry service (cheap!). Breakfast is complete and very good. Within waking distance of the center and restaurants. Parking (a must in Stellenbosch). The staff made us reservations for diner and wine tours.
The bathroom was a bit small.
Everything - especially as were were with a group of happy and enthusiastic (noisy!) friends,
Michelle was very friendly and helpful! The setting and location is wonderful!
Room was a bit small and the wifi did not work very well!

We liked everything about Bonne Esperance. It is important to note that it is very centrally located and all the lovely retaurants and little shops are within short, safe walking distance; Stellenbosch has little vehicle parking space.
Perfect position, wonderfully appointed, helpful staff and generally a fabulous stay. I would without doubt stay in the Studio self-cater again.
Evening revelry from nearby home.
The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and helpful and the surroundings was quiet and peaceful. I had an enjoyable stay.
Wi-Fi was a bit of a problem, bathroom a bit cramped- but still everything I needed.
Perfectly situated and a delightful place to stay.
Short of parking Would have loved a good cappuccino
Good location, as only a 5 minute walk to the highlights of Stellenbosch Friendly staff who were very helpful Good breakfast
There were a lot of ants in our bedroom and it could have been a bit cleaner. Also we saw a large beetle at breakfast.
Historical building close to the centre of Stellenbosch. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast.
My wife and I have stayed at Bonne Esperance in Stellenbosch a few times over the years. We have always been in the main house and enjoyed the room,inclusive breakfast , beautiful garden and small pool .The general ambience is very peaceful and relaxing.
This time I stayed 2 nights on business as a solo traveller. I was given a large very well appointed room in the new house Bonne Esperance have acquired recently, but it's renovations were only just finished and the smell of paint was very strong. I was also charged R100 extra for each day's breakfast which was mentioned on their website when booking but seems unreasonable?
Location in Stellenbosch Friendly staff Clean and comfortable
Inadequate parking Small rooms (petit rooms too small)
Location Size of the room Colour scheme Cleanliness
Mattress rather hard View onto a bare wall from bay window in Studio 1 not very inviting. How about some pot plants/creepers to create the impression of a garden?
The rooms are spacious and beautiful It's deserve to be charged R1500 per night This is 5* star *****
Nothing Even wifi it's working excellent
new renovated self catering house, seperate from b and b house stylish and modern inside but with old world charm outside
Spacious, comfortable room wth all the amenities that I required for my stay. Friendly welcome on arrival from staff. Very well located, plenty of parking. Large patio to enjoy a drink in the evening. Well manicured garden.
The room, the breakfasts and the location. The room was excellent.
No milk (100ml) in room. Mixed good tea bags with Rooibos tea bags, which made the decent tea bags smell like rooibos!!! Cannot stand rooibos! No soap bar in the bathroom..
Very friendly and helpful staff Nice facilities Good breakfast
