“Great time in Alba House”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Paarl is very nice location to spend a holidays with family. There are so many great golf courses, wineries and perfect restaurants. We spend nice rest time in Alba House. There are comfortable rooms, rich breakfast with a lot of fruit and homemade cakes, beautiful garden with swimming pool and wonderful views around. We definitely recommend Alba House!

Very good location with excellent views on the side of the Paarl Mountain. Comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms. Outside seating for each room. Beautiful garden and large swimming pool. Very relaxing stay and highly recommended.

The hosts will recommend places to go, great wine farms and restaurants. The Paarl valley is surrounded by mountains. We played golf on 2 very good golf courses. Paarl Boschenmeer and Pearl Valley.

If you looking to visit Paarl, Alba House is highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the double room with a view, very nice.

Our stay here was delightful. 4 days in Paarl and the accommodation was great. Breakfasts were lovely with wonderful fresh fruit, the owners were very helpful, bed comfortable and pool relaxing. Paarl is a great location to tour the wine routes of South Africa and this accommodation is bang on. This is an area of truly outstanding beauty.

We visited Paarl and stayed in Alba House from 31 December 2013 to 04 January 2014. We had a lovely time! John and Ivana went out of their way to assist us with dinner bookings and recommending wineries and places to visit during the day. We followed their advice and were never disappointed. Our room was beautiful, spacious, neat and clean. The B&B has a very nice swimming people and stunning views of the mountains. Breakfast was good as well. The location is perfect if you are looking at visiting wineries, with them being about 10 minutes' drive away. We can definitely recommend this B&B and will certainly return!

I have been visiting the South Africa regularly for last 10 years. I has taken me some time to discover Alba House B&B in Paarl. It is tidy, clean, up market B&B with beautiful garden and swimming pool in perfect position at foothill Paarl mountain with stunning vievs over valley.

Alba House is perfect "base camp" for me, for playing golf with friends on many golf coureses in neighborhood. John, the owner, is the current president of the Paarl Golf Club so no problem with tee off times wherever.

Walking distance from Alba House is few top notch restaurants which have to be visited. I usually visit restaurant on main road Noop (...sprinkbok sirloin with local porchini maschroom sauce... imposible to make mistake :o)... but any item on menu sounded devine.)... Quality of food, services, staff attitude is way above Cape Town level and prices certainly way below CPT. Stay in Paarl In Alba house is the perfect solution for overseas visitors since the area is safe with warm and friendly atphmosfere compare to anonymous big cities. From my personal experiences I can reccommend it. John and Ivana are very friendly people, never hesitate to help and organise for me and my friends some unforgettable experience. They create warm athmosphere and anytime in Alba House I feel wellcome.
