Excellent accomodation close to the center in a safe area with most friendly hosts Gwen and John. The room is beautiful with very good beds. The Wifi works well. The breakfast was superb. Gwen and John give you all the services you may need.

Gwen and Johan really, really care that you enjoy your stay (and are very good at making sure that you do). They provide the staples; a great bed, and a great breakfast, and arrange everything else for you (after discussion, of course!).

My wife and I stayed with Johan and Gwen at their delightful establishment - and what a treat it was - well appointed, spotlessly clean with the best quality fittings, soft furnishings and linen, and absolute attention to detail made this a memorable and extremely comfortable stay. And the personalized and friendly service from our hosts was outstanding. Centrally situated...

Very clean, beds & linen excellent. Accommodation is to a high standard with good facilities (air con, fridge, shower & bath …). Good location, central to Stellenbosch.
