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
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!
Location, Location, location
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.
