Only stayed one night and weather wasn't wonderful so wasn't able to use the pool or patio. Hotel is very close to the town centre so a short walk to bars, restaurants, shops etc. Very easy to find from highway
Quiet. It was quiet and secluded and I felt safe The staff was friendly And for me, the best? My car was washed! Thank you so much!!
The staff got mixed up to where whom stayed, with the result when we were two in a room, we only had one set of towels. We coped, not a problem
Very close to town but nice and quiet.
Shower over the bath leaked all over the floor. Rooms on the ground floor were noisy - you could hear the person in the bathroom next door as well as the staff in the kitchen. Were first offered room 6 - no window,only sliding door looking onto a dismal small patio,changed then to room 2, slight better view (bit of garden and a wall!)
LIKE AN OLD BOARDNG HOUSE. IMPERSONAL. BREAKFAST VERY AVERAGE.
Very friendly staff, great location, safe parking and wifi that works. can walk everywhere and feel comfortable in the quiet surroudings
the tv programmes available, two channel was a little small on choice
The best croissants ever!!!!
Parking area a bit crammed when full, luckily I was using my daughters little car
The breakfast was good.
There were people drinking and make a lot of noise just on the other side of the river opposite the Guest House. The advertisement offered breakfast lunch and dinner ONLY breakfast was serve.
Friendly staff, very accomodating, good breakfast, and great location.
Good quality bedding. Comfortable room with all the necessities you need available. Tranquil setting.
Staff is very noisy very early in the morning, so not possible to sleep in which was the only thing that could have been better, and weighing it up to everything else, a small inconvenience.
Friendly helpful staff
The shower didn't work properly & TV reception was poor.
Staff was friendly and room and bathroom very neat and tidy.
Friendly reception staff - they greeting you by name and made you feel welcome
No bar/ drinks facilities - not even for a coke!
The staff was very friendly.
The tables was not set properly for breakfast; breakfast was very unorganised! I had to ask for milk, cutlery etc. The people was not happy because of that during breakfast. The staff; the young ladies was VERY loud and flirtatious as well as in and out of the rooms of the olympic athletes, up to late; 12nm at night. There was no bin in the room as well as a loose carpet on the tile floor. I will not stay their again.
Easy to walk into town. Quiet
The location was on a side street in the middle of town no more the 5 mins to most placed. Wine tour picked us up and dropped us off, easy to get everywhere in the wine district.
staff and pretty fast internet
Position rooms fine , small but probably good value
Thought the breakfast could be improved. No egg cups for soft boiled eggs skipped breakfast second morning could not get wifi working too basic for us all the rooms cheek by jowl
The location was great, and off street parking.
Staff's attitude was very bizarre (asking us to come home from dinner to move room), leaving buffet breakfast empty. Rooms were stuffy. Definitely not worth the price.
The pool was really nice, very glad that the room had air conditioning.
I have stayed many times and it is familiar, quiet, and always has interesting people staying (this time, British athletes and coaches).
wifi did not work in room, only in the lobby
Ambience is pleasing Good security and parking
Access to ground floor room through service corridor WiFi not working in rooms
Located in Stellenbosch and close to a river. Very helpful and friendly staff
Rooms were a bit old and stuffy. Rooms are also very small
