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
The room where we stayed
Cleaning of the bedroom was slack - two days the room was not vacuumed nor were tissues and bits of paper removed from around the bedroom dustbin
Excellent location within walking distance of the best eating out and shopping areas. Warm and friendly staff. Very good breakfast. Comfortable, old-style room overlooking the central garden. Superb value for money overall.
It was a bit cold in the dining room and in our room, too. Thw wi-fi in our room was unsteady.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good location to visit the university and short walk to the main strip of restaurants and shops. We took the Vine Hopper bus for an easy day of wine tasting with pick-up and drop-off at our accommodations.
Nothing, would return again!
Location, Reception staff, comfy beds, nice breakfast
Cold common areas, bathroom and bedrooms, kitchen/staff were surly and unfriendly, restaurant recommendation was not very good.
The house was beautiful with a shared lounge that had a lovely piano and a tray with port and glasses. Lovely extra little touches that made you feel at home. Breakfast was included and very good.
Our room was very small and right next to reception. You could hear the people's clunking feet on the floor above and their voices quite clearly when they came in at night which kept us awake. Make sure you don't get that room.
The beautiful house, location, town, staff, room and so on... Really awesome value for money
Clean comfy and great breakfasts. Beautiful building and close to town.
Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms in a quiet yet central part of town.
Being able to eat breakfast outside. Being close to the varsity for my son's graduation and being able to walk to restaurants and shops.
Location, relaxed atmosphere
Good location, the room and the breakfast was okay. However I wouldn´t stay there again.
Wi-Fi doesn´t work in the room.
