“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to stay as long as you don't expect 5 star accommodations. But you're not paying for that. The rooms have character and are unique. They are very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The area is close to restaurants, etch, but far enough away to be quiet.
The rooms upstairs are the nicest.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Well what a pity that we booked this hotel for our stay in beautiful Stellenbosch! The hotel is in desperate need of paint and other refurbishing! Really depressing! The breakfast was also served in a very unprofessional way!

Room Tip: There are such lovely hotels in Stellenbosch, so do not choose any rooms here...

I made a mistake and booked two nights instead of one. Upon check-in I informed reception of my mistake. Although they were under no obligation to do so, they fully refunded my 2nd night's stay that I did not utilise. Great location for Stellenbosch.

On arrival in capetown, the hotel had organised transport to stellenbosch. The shuttle bus was waiting for us. The hotel is in two parts on either side of the road. Our room was on the opposite side of the road from the main building behind asteel gate, a wooden door and yet another door. A room done in the old style with nice large bed and a chaise longue. Large bathroom. There was even an upstairs with two additional beds. The breakfast was in the main building, where also the tiny swimming pool was located. Good food at breakfast. The hotel is also nicely located rather close to the city centre.

I've now stayed at the Ryneveld lodge twice. Each time, I was met with great service. The B&B is stacked full of beautiful antique furniture, reminiscent of its history. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the breakfast delicious. It is a mere block away from Stellenbosch university. The only thing I found strange was that there is no Rooibos tea at the coffee stations - this is quite unusual for a South African B&B. I will definitely be back.

I am postgraduate student at Stellenbosch and travel from Johannesburg every month for a block class. I have been staying at the lodge for the past months. The location is central close to everything, it literally take me 3 minutes to walk to class. The welcoming friendly staff always makes one feel at home. The available facilities enable and make studying possible. The lodge is conducive for either business or holiday outing with family or just as a couple. Every time I have been here I have met people visiting for the area for different reasons.
