We stayed there for one evening on our honeymoon before flying out. The service was excellent, we got upgraded to the deluxe room and received a hamper with champagne and gifts. Great service, stunning rooms with modern interior and lovely views.

Our tour group stayed for one night. It's a motel style setup with 2-storey buildings spread around the complex. You can park close to your room. I was in room K08 which was about as far away as you can get from reception. Room was good but bathroom was a little tired and dark.You get a voucher for 500mb free...

I stayed here for a week in Oct while evaluating a local project. At first I wasn't that impressed. Seemed very geared for groups, large, rather impersonal - but as the week carried on I appreciated more the good service, delicious breakfast and the niceness of the staff. The rooms are basic/good, clean - some can be quite a walk...

Situated a few minutes outside Stellenbosch overlooking the Kleine Salze golf estate, it is a large hotel which I would recommend for larger groups or business travelers: Rooms are modern, new, very clean, buffet- as well as a lar carte dining is offered. Conference facilities are available, staff is helpful and friendly.

Very clean and comfortable place to stay if you're into mediocre fancy hotels. More of a apartment if you get a lounge as well. Great personal. Very safe . Overall had nothing to complain about and the nature is just beautiful. Short drive away from the student city Stellenbosch.

They were spacious, well looked after and had the most spectacular views of the Stellenbosch Mountain range.
