Score from 192 reviews Very good
bonneesperance is managed professionally and a well located spot near the center of stellenbosch, the pool is very small
when you go by car, parking is a logistic problem, going from one house to the other, cross a busy street,find the right button for the right door etc.
Brilliant location, only a few minutes walk from the town centre. We stayed in one of the self catering apartments and it was perfect. There was a great little pool and secure off street parking. Staff were very helpful and organised for an iron to be brought to our room very efficiently. Will definitely stay here again when in the area again next year.
We couldn't get connected to the wifi from our room. If we cat by the living room window we could get online but connection was very slow. Fortunately I was able to use 3G on my phone for doing little things and we didn't really need the Internet any way!
Starting to look a little shabby. Remains of someone else's drink in the fridge. Poor sound insulation, so could hear neighbouring rooms. All towels taken and bedding stripped while we were having breakfast - at 9.30! Unappetising breakfast.
The garden and history
The double bed and room was too small for two singles to share.
Breakfast was great. Good value.

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.
