The Stellenbosch Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Superb location in the centre of Stellenbosch's dining and shopping experience. I stayed here for 3 weeks over Christmas and felt like I was at home and with family. The accommodation is excellent but what makes this the place to stay is the people. GM, Wesley Swartz and his team are second to none and provided a level of guest service I have never before experienced during 50 years of international travel.The on site Stellenbosch Kitchen is also one of the town's finest dining experiences for lunch and dinner - again with staff who genuinely want to delight you and give you a memorable experience. Breakfast is included and offers a wonderful selection of dishes to suit every palate.

My review is that your establishment is modern , efficient and well run! I will definitely recommend it to friends and family. It is very centrally situated as well. Before we stayed at your facility we were advised that it catered mainly for Europeans and not so much for local people.

The Stellenbosch Hotel is perfect for long stays or overnighters. The cosy hotel boasts the infamous Stellenbosch Kitchen which is a must visit restaurant. All the staff are extremely helpful and attentive and the rooms are clean and spacious. The showers are large and have a modern style to them. The hotel offers many facilities and is located near everything you'd need or places you'd want to visit. There is hotel parking available at no cost. You can even take a walk to the nearby mall if need be. The hotel is a favourite of mine and I highly recommend it. The reception staff and management staff especially are extremely accommodating. I did have a few problems with a sister hotel of theirs, but all thos issues were ironed out in a matter of hours and I was glad to see the hospitality and determination of the Hotel Managers who really did offer some excellent service. The other outstanding feature was the extremely fast wifi, also free. The breakfast is also complimentary to all hotel guests. The hotel also has some historical backing, playing and important in Stellenbosch. I highly recommend staying here.

We only spend one night and we had a very nice stay. Although the room was small it had everything you need for one night. The breakfast was and the service was very good. The staff very friendly and helpful

The hotel itself is rather tired, however this is more than made up for by the polite and friendly staff. Lionel in particular was extremely helpful in getting our air con up and running. I would certainly recommend it.

We had a fantastic time in the heart of the winelands...couldn't choose a better place to stay!! Excellent location, friendliest staff, best breakfast, convenient and spacious apartment - what a feast!!

Great location, very helpful staff and lovely facilities that are clean and tidy. The rooms are decorated in old school charm, but are nice and clean. The breakfast is a wonderful spread. The rooms on the third floor are a bit of a walk with bags, but the staff are very helpful and carry your bags for you (:

Nice hotel with old time atmosphere. Our room was a mid priced room on the courtyard with a french balcony. Steep stairs led to the room which was pleasantly furnished with a long gallery connecting the bath and bedroom and nice art on the walls. There was a bit of noise and cigarette smoke from the courtyard, so we kept our windows closed. Room was a bit small with two beds pushed together. Packed luggage went under the bed and was rolled out when needed. Reception was pleasant and friendly and we were recognized as we entered and departed. They were helpful in arranging wine tours and nearby restaurants. The hotel is in a great location. Safe and secure on a beautiful street in downtown. Walking distance to restaurants, popular shops and local museums. Very pretty and so glad we did not stay out in one of those wineries.

Very homy and nice hotel centrally located in Stellenbosch. Nice breakfast buffet. Very attentive and friendly staff. Parking is included and easy to access. Lots of reataurants and shops in walking distance

I will always choose the Stellenbosch Hotel for its location, great service and excellent food at the Stellenbosch Kitchen. I’ve stayed over many times and will keep coming back. I love the location right in the heart of Stellies. Walking distance to most attractions and eateries
