Beautiful boutique hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch with comfortable rooms, excellent service and endless coutesy. Plunge pool and great breakfast are icing on the cake. Rosy and crew are only interested in offering the highest quality experience.

The Batavia is a genuine Boutique Hotel. We received a charming welcome and, after a glass of wine, were shown to our delighful rooms full of interesting features and personal touches. The staff and management were charming at all times. We would definitely return to this wonderful hotel.

We received a lovely warm welcome when we stayed at Batavia. The staff provided lots of useful tips and a great breakfast. Really loved the quirkiness of this hotel and the tasty delights that were left in reception. Thank you!

The Batavia is a real gem. Our room was fabulous with interesting antiques and a wonderful bathroom complete with rainfall shower and separate slipper bath... very decadent and spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Loved the turndown service too. Fabulous glass of chilled white wine on arrival which was very welcome. The pool is more of a plunge pool -...

This is a delightful little place ~ period. The only thing to add is that they need to have a car guard outside for the night. It is very close to everything, but it gets very quiet and it is naughty to advertise secure parking, when that is only adequate for three or four group B cars, squeezed in together....

Martina, the new manageress, made us very welcome throughout our stay and, as she had arranged, Themba was there when we arrived at 9pm at night. We settled into our usual room but were slightly disappointed to see it cluttered with an additional single bed and furniture that disrupted the 'space that makes this room so special .. hence not...

Batavia Boutique hotel is very stylish and upmarket. The location is convenient enough for you to park your car there and walk to all the restaurants and shops in Stellenbosch town. We felt very welcomed upon arrival and had a great time. We will be back.

This was one of our favourite places to stay on our recent trip to South Africa on our honeymoon. It's a small personal place and staff and management are so friendly and welcoming. Our room was beautiful and I loved the separate bath area. There are lovely touches like fluffy bath robes and slippers and sprigs of lavender. We really...
