The images on booking.com depicted an entirely different room than the one I was given and the staff seemed confused when I inquired about that. Online I had been told the room I was in was separate from the main house...

The patio and pool area is a very pleasant place to sit and relax after visiting the wineries. Francesca made us very welcome and at home. The breakfast is...

Nothing is too much trouble for Francisca and Jacques and they are always ready to ensure you have the best stay possible. Francisca is also an amazing cook and the...

My husband, 2 year old girl & myself booked a night away in Stellenbosch through Daddy's deals and stayed at Eikelower. Apart from the fact that the host Francesca accommodated us after the deal expired we had a great stay. Francesca & her husband Jacques were excellent hosts and set a real family environment. Bedding is very important to me...

Six of us decided to take advantage of a special offer and spent a night at Eikelower. It is situated in a leafy suburb, quite close to the famous Lanzerac Hotel. The receptionist on duty was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a decent size and attractively furnished and the small bathroom was quite adequate. - all sparkling clean....

i can only endorse the reviews already posted. This is a cosy guesthouse on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast very good. The hosts are very helpful and help you plan your days and make restaurant suggestions and reservations. The guest house is on the edge of town so it's a little way to the centre....
