We've had a great stay at African Valley Estate. The rooms are nicely equipped and offer good privacy and a great view on the mountain slopes. Breakfast was excellent and for dinner we went out to fine restaurants in the vicinity. The owners are very friendly and service oriented.

Wonderful hotel with only 12 large suites, located just outside Stellenbosch on the way to Franschhoek. Large estate with good privacy, great views. Clean modern rooms. We stayed here for the second time and the mix of privacy, comfort and friendly service (owned by friendly Dutch couple) made our stay perfect.

Very friendly and helpful staff and hosts. Very quiet place while...

In the hills surrounding stellenbosch lies this pristine little hotel. The hotel consists of 12 extremely luxurious rooms, all equipped with bathtub, separate shower a huge kingsize bed which slept like a charm, your own little fireplace and floor tile heating throughout the room. Ideal for the cold wintermonths in which we stayed here. Besides that there is an outdoor...
