This is a very nice guesthouse at a wine estate. We loved the interior design of both the communal areas as well as the room and the beautiful view from the pool. The breakfast was delicious. The warm welcome and the many recommendations we got from the host were extremely helpful. Only the bed was very small for two (probably...

The set up is quaint, and only a 5 min taxi ride from the center of Stellenbosch. The hotel has a gated...
