We stopped in here for lunch, during an Atlantic Rail Tour. Great place, friendly staff, great service, especially from a lady called Petronella (hope I have spelt her name right) in the restaurant. Highly Recommended.

This is my second stay in this hotel. The first was in room 3 next to the kitchen. From very early in the morning I was disturbed by the noises and the smell coming from there. While the breakfast itself was the normal high quality of Protea hotels, it didn't make up for the room experience. This time around I...

Clean and hospitable. Upstairs loft spacious but a little uneasy for a tall person. Air conditioning quiet and cool. Breakfast good and plentiful. Enjoyed my one night here. 10 minute walk to town center and restaurants. 5 minutes to nice selection of restaurants on Dorp Street. Feels old but quaint. Good place.

There is certain colonial charm in this hotel which excuses few things otherwise would not be acceptable for example old ordinary thin doors when opening to lobby did not keep away any conversation hold outside the room nor did the windows keep from the street noise. And it's located next to rather important and vivid streets. The location is good...

Stayed here as part of a group of 16 golfers visiting from the UK. Hotel ideally situated for golf and wine trips and also a short walk into Stellenbosch, which was lovely.

A lovely quaint hotel that reminded me of an old farmhouse. All rooms were very different from studio flats to two storey houses. I had a 2 storey house, which had a large kitchen, toilet and shower downstairs with a large TV dining area and lounge area. Upstairs was a large bedroom, second bathroom with a shower and separate bath,...

The location is super noisy next to one of the major streets with a lot of traffic in the morning and the evening. But the good news that you have easy access to the vineyards in the Stellenosch area. The room was great but you can see that the hotel is older and then nobody is really investing in it...
