Boord Guest House is unique in Stellenbosch because although it nestles in a huge park, it is conveniently close to historic Dorp Street (10 min walk) and from there, the centre of town. Easy access to the R44 means you can get to Cape Town International Airport in 25 minutes, Strand Beach in 20 minutes and onto the World-famous Wine Route in 3 minutes. Golf (4 minutes), mountaineering, cycling, hiking and Table Mountain are popular pursuits with our guests. We offer off-street parking, a champagne pool, a cosy Lounge with books and fireplace, free breakfast in our Poolside Pavilion Breakfast Room, laundry facilities and each of our Suites has its own kitchenette for self-catering. Our Suites differ but they all have free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV with DSTV, a Queen sized four-poster extra length super cosy beds, as well as a private outside space in the form of a patio or balcony. We look forward to welcoming you.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

BeverleyBBell wrote a review Feb 2021
Mossel Bay, South Africa
5.0 of 5 bubbles
Booking was made easy because there was always a prompt response to our calls with queries. Sherry and Rashied was both so helpful from the first contact.
Boord Guest House is conveniently located, not in the hustle and bustle but also not too far from it. A short drive to Malls, World class restaurants and 'quick connect' access routes to surrounding sites.
The guesthouse is perfect for a short or long stay; with staff that are always willing to make the stay unforgettable.
My family and I (plus our puppy) were treated like guests but felt as if we were home.
Breakfast was always fresh and fun, served on the patio or inside. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Serving us with easy banter so that we felt like guests but also feeling at home.
The Family suite had more than sufficient space for a family of 4 + a puppy. Our rather large balcony overlooked the pool area and the HUGE park right next door.
It was such a great stay that we are already planning our next visit!

Very good service received during our stay , something that is rare these days. Accomodation in a safe area which is very close to the Stellenbosch centre - if you very energetic you can walk- with very spacious and clean room.Breakfast every morning was also good and the fire in the background was lovely on the cold mornings.

Sherry, Rashied and Alfred were fabulous hosts who really went the extra mile to accommodate us when we were stranded in Cape Town for a few extra days. The family room is great for families with ample space and all the amenities of a home away from home. As hosts the Boord are attentive and caring and the facilities and location in Stellenbosch are excellent and fantastic value for money. I can highly recommend the Boord guesthouse. We will be back!

The hotel was good and the breakfast is perfect. Unfortunately the wifi in the room was not good enough for me. As we need a perfect wifi, we choose the accomodation on Wifi,, we were not satisfied about this. Manager will change thaty infuture. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We could make use of the kitchen for something to cook. Was great. Thanks

Dear Mrs Mooyman Thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking the time to review us. So happy you thought the hotel was good, staff was friendly and helpful and that the breakfast is perfect. Luckily you always had perfect (and free) Wifi in our little business center? As you mention in your review, I did explain that we have gone over to fiber recently, the problem is both intermittent and temporary - and we were busy sorting out issues as fast as we can - during the festive season. We wish you a great 2020. Kindest Regards Sherry

room was clean, nice and comfortable. Nice shower.
staff very professional and kind.
breakfast was very good.
The Guest house located in a safe area and we could park easily outside, just in front of the guest house.
Nice to have a park with playgound few minutes walking distance.
Only From the photos I would expected the guest house to be more in the countryside, not with neightbours next to it...anyway it was not an issue at all.

Everything was so perfect. A great big thank you to the staff and management for making sure we felt thoroughly spoilt. From the sherry and chocolates, to the cheerful fires in the morning and hot water bottles at night, everything detail made for a memorable stay.
Will be back soon.

Our stay was very pleasant, it was close to the Stellenbosch Market. My only critics were no fresh milk nor sachets for tea or coffee. I asked for soft eggs and I got the hardest eggs ever. The room was very comfortable and quiet.

Sherry is a warm-hearted kind hostess. She made sure that we had everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable and satisfying. Her staff took care of us by making sure that the room was comfortable, clean and stocked for our time spent at the guesthouse.

The breakfast was well-made and delicious. Every morning the service was the same, warm and excellent.

Having our pets with us made it more pleasant and comforting.

I would recommend Boord Guesthouse to anyone who needs a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of city living.
