Fantastic location and cute house but looks like it needs a bit of a revamp. Minor details such as Skirting boards had fallen off and a leaking kettle (we were in the story room). Perhaps a bit more effort required for a more u market appearance to fit the price? Otherwise an enjoyable stay.

Very expensive accommodation with little differentiation to justify the premium. No security with limited, inconvenient parking facility. Owner manager expect you to move your vehicle when someone wants to leave the premise. No after hour service - had to return to premise later in the day to return the keys. Breakfast served on another premise Not a good experience

Quiet location yet close to the centre; peaceful garden to relax in; free espressos available 24/24; excellent and delicious breakfast; helpful staff. Slightly old-fashioned in the nicest possible way. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

I found myself somewhat apprehensive after a last minute booking at Albarosa. What a pleasant surprise! The History room, although part of the main house, was homely, large and with excellent bathroom facilities! The gardens of the property are beautiful, the house full of character, and the location very central in Stellenbosch. Breakfast was awesome and only added to a... More

Excellent choice as very close to all amenities but situated in a quiet secure area. Beautiful old house with new annex where we stayed in the artist room. Nice surprise to find we had access to kitchen facilities. Breakfast pleasantly served and made to order. Would definitely recommend to others.

We had the best 5 days at the Albarosa, great breakfast and Gert and staff were very helpful! Roons were clean and very comfortable beds, loved the cherry at night on our bedside table. We will be back soon.

We had a great stay at the Albarose guesthouse! We especially liked the fresh fruit bowls at breakfast and the staff was really flexible and helpfull during our arrival and departure. They made sure someone was there during these times.

We stayed here for two nights, and wish we could've stayed longer. Everything about this place exudes old world, classic charm and hospitality. The staff is warm, friendly and wonderful. The breakfast is divine. I always asked for a second fruit bowl which they always so graciously gave me. This is a slice of home away from home. We even... More
