My friend and I spent two nights at Middedorp and were impressed by the elegant decor and hospitality of Annemien and her staff. The Manor is centrally located in Stellenbosch, but far enough from the university and 'downtown' area to maintain and more quiet, serene ambiance. Annemien was extremenly helpful organizing our daytrips and making suggestions for places to visit around town. We were lucky to have found such a lovely place to stay!

Members of my family, my husband and I and several of our friends have stayed over at Middedorp Manor over the past year when we visited the beautiful student town of Stellenbosch. This guesthouse is stylishly and elegantly decorated and the service from Annemien and her right hand man, Maxwell, is impeccable. Nothing is too much trouble, even our muddy bicycles were spirited away out of sight after an enjoyable mtb ride. The breakfast is hearty, extensive and fresh. Sitting in the sun on the back stoep with a cup of coffee and Annemien's exotic cat for company is sheer bliss. There is also a small flatlet let to self-catering guests that we think is excellent value for money and where we enjoy the extra privacy. We never look further when we stay over in this area.

As part of our tour of the wine lands we chose to stay at Middedorp and we were not disappointed. Annemien, the owner, is like a fairy godmother and you almost want to bring her home with you but then who would look after her stunning cat!! The guesthouse is a palette of neutral tones giving a cool and contemporary feel but the ambience is warm and homely. Excellent breakfast provided either in the stunning garden or dining room. What Annemien doesn't know about the area is not worth knowing and for that alone...your stay here will exceed your expectations. We shall return not only to beautiful South Africa but most certainly to Middedorp. Well done Annemien and we both look forward to seeing you again soon....

Room Tip: There are only four...all lovely!

Middedorp is a beautiful converted 100-year old house, with huge, beautifully decorated rooms- like you are staying in a style magazine. Really friendly welcome and service - nothing is too much trouble. It's 2 minutes walk into the centre of Stellenbosch to all the shops and restaurants, but the hotel felt very quiet and secluded. If you are planning a trip to Stellenbosch and want a lovely, luxurious place to stay - this is it, don't hesitate. We loved it.

What a fabulous b&b. This is the height of luxury, fantastic rooms, lovely gardens and pool area, fabulous breakfasts and excellent service. We recently stayed for two nights and it definitely could have been longer, we are three couples travelling together and we all loved Middedorp. Annemien is a wonderful host and her staff are very helpful. Middedorp is in a great position within walking distance of the centre of Stellenbosch but on a quiet road. Just a pity we couldn't have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Get a suite if you can, they are fabulous

Absolutely STUNNING boutique guesthouse, in a perfectly central location for exploring Stellenbosch. We stayed in Room one, a Deluxe Suite, which was hugely spacious with an incredible bathroom! The decor has been beautifully thought out, and the bed was so comfy we struggled to leave the room! Annemien provided great service throughout, and nothing was too much trouble. We'll definitely be back!

I highly recommend staying here. The house is stunning. the interiors are sophisticated and stylish interiors with some amazing artwork. Yet it manages to feel homely and relaxed. The loaction is perfect too being just a few minutes stroll from the fabulous bars, bistros, boutiques and galleries yet tranquil.

We stayed in the room at the front and enjoyed pre-dinner G'n'Ts from the honesty bar on the balcony. The bathroom was very luxurious too with a lovely free-standing bath. Huge comfortable bed, lovely seating area and desk and great guide to local bistros in the room.

The pool is small but beautiful and so tranquil. A lovely spot to spend a few hours in teh afternoon.

Sadly, the owner was not about due to a family berevment but her son and daughter were charming and exceptionally helpful.

A great find and I hope to return one day, maybe with my little girls as I understand they are going to be adding a large suite at the rear near the pool later this year.

One thing, we drive past a few times as we couldn't see a sign outside.

Highly recommended!
