    The lovely relaxed atmosphere of the house, very calm. Also the little details, like bottles of filtered water available around the grounds and fresh coffee and decanters of sherry in the rooms.

    The slightly tedious walk into town, but yet too close to justify driving. Only a little thing though in an otherwise super guesthouse.

    Lovely spacious rooms (ask for the terrace room or nr 8 upstairs ) with very nice -sturdy- beds. Very warm welcome, good amenities and beautiful building. Good shower and good size bath! Nice breakfast as well. Happily situated on the outskirts of the village. Personnel is incredibly kind and helpful.

    On quite a busy road and old building, so upstairs you will hear cars pass by and sounds of other people scurrying about. We did not mind, but might ask for another room next time. Also: dogs barking down the road. But earplugs work. The stay is worth it!

    The staff were very welcoming and the property was attractive and clean. Our upstairs room was tastefully decorated, quiet and warm (it was winter) and breakfast the next morning was more than adequate. We were also given a suggested tourist walk route around town. Unfortunately, we didn't have sufficient time so did a quick drive by, then off to the airport. Stellenbosch is definitely somewhere that you could spend more time and we would stay at Summerwood if we came this way again.

    Nothing.

    What a delightfully beautiful and classy establishment. The house is charming and beautifully decorated, with every comfort possible for a bed & breakfast. Highly recommended!!

    The wifi weak and intermittent, which was difficult from a business point of view.

    The entire human entourage, from managing staff to gardener

    When you sleep at ground level in room 1, the upstairs guests can be noisy walking around in the middle of the night... But I would still opt for room 1 nevertheless

    The staff and owner were extremely helpful and friendly. Free bottles of water and coffee and cake in the guest lounge were an unexpected bonus.

    It looked lovely ..... but.....

    I was extremely disappointed as I called in advance to ensure the property was in the town centre and within strolling distance as I had 2 young children and we were only in Stellenbosch for 1 night. Secondly, I also asked that the children be in a room next to ours. I was informed this would not be possible BUT that they would be on the same floor - this was also confirmed to me by email. I arrived to a property at least 25 minutes walk from town and our children were on the ground floor and we were on the 1st. So the 2 most important things were not as promised- i was so disappointed that we decided not to stay there. Such a pity to do this when it was meant to be a special occasion.

    The entire house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The garden and pool a perfect spot to relax after a days sightseeing. Staff were very helpful and made dinner reservations for us locally. Best breakfast of our trip.

    Easy acess to Stellenbosch town and region.

    Parking became tight when all residents were in for the evening, the road was busy in the morning which was disturbing.

    Excellent room and facilities. A distance from shops and restaurants was more than made up by the position on the beautiful Leisure Isle. Taxi services provided to restaurants.

    It is very hard to see how Summerwood could be improved, as a family-run guest-house it sets the bar extremely high. Spacious room, relaxing atmosphere, friendly and helpful hosts, lovely garden with comfortable recliners and sun and shade in equal measure plus a decent size swimming pool, superb breakfast and an excellent location in a quiet part of pretty Stellenbosch - what more could you ask?

    Absolutely nothing!

    Nice small hotel, in very nice surroundings, but a bit far from down town Stellenbosch Excellent buffet for breakfast

    Probably we had the smallest and darkest room, which we did not like. The other rooms provided more space and more light

    Great setting, warm and friendly owners who looked after us. Beautifully decorated and we had a great time relaxing on the grass besides the pool. We had everything that we needed in the room.

    There was nothing that I didn't like.

    Beautiful decor and interior. Clean room. Delicious breakfast.

    Not a big choice in the bar. There was no coke or snacks. No music at the pool. My husband didn't like that the pool wasn't heated. No umbrellas.

    The owners and staff of this Guest House made us very welcome. The room was furnished to a high standard and all the facilities were immaculately maintained. The breakfast was first class and the pool and garden area was perfect to sit and relax in after a busy day sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay here and would thoroughly recommend the Summerwood Guest House to anyone wanting to visit Stellenbosch.

    Situated in Stellenbosch it was close to the great South African wine estates. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    The breakfast was self service and poorer than any other of the five guesthouses we stayed at in South Africa. The room was a little small and there was no direct light over a mirror.
