This was our second visit to Van der Stel, it is a wonderful place to stay. Such high standards and in a fabulous setting. The garden early morning is a fab place to sit and read, then into breakfast served by Joyce. It is something different every day and always a lovely surprise. The usual breakfast stuff is available also....

We spent 11 nights in February/ March at Van der Stel Manor. We had visited the previous year to look it over & were so impressed we booked it on the spot. It's location in a quiet neighbourhood is ideal yet it is within walking distance of the vibrant town centre. The house itself is beautiful & extremely well furnished....

Beautiful small manor in the kap stile nicely run by Swiss couple. Very quiet location with garden and pool. The fabulous 4 course breakfast is the perfect start into the day that you will either pass on one of the various golf courses or going on a sightseeing and wine tasting tour around the numerous splendid wineries. Thank you for...

I would like to say a big thanks to Primus and Gertrud for making our stay in Stellenbosch such a wonderful experience. The building and rooms are first rate with beautiful gardens surrounding, a real oasis to get away from it all. The superb surroundings are not where it ends however, more where it starts - the service provided by...

The manor was initially recommended by friends. We thereafter have booked again - wow what a bijou. All 3 rooms have their own patio to the garden and swimming pool. One can hardly describe the service. Service and Hospitality is simply excellent and barely to beat. The brakefast service ist simply outstanding and every day a great experience.

This accommodation was booked for us by our travel agent, what a gem. Only four rooms all beautifully furnished and equipped. We stayed for five nights of pampering. Breakfasts, different every day, are of superb quality and the presentation better than a top hotel. When we arrived, Primus had already booked dinner tables at local restaurants, to ensure we had...

Place was recommended to me by a friend who stayed there before. We were 2 people staying in 2 different rooms. What a "bijou". All 3 rooms have their own patio facing the lovely garden and swimming pool. Rooms have everything one needs and even more. Bathrooms are big. Everything is clean and there is a turn down service.
