Fanatastic experience. Staff and owner demonstrate an acute attention for details where it concerns the well-being of their guests. Top quality accomodation, delicious breakfast with ample choice, and I had no problem parking my rental car on the property !

I came to Middedorp by accident, thanks to a mess up at a local hotel (after an 11 hour flight that doomed hotel was all I needed; they were undergoing construction). I was in Stellenbosch on business in the wine industry and stayed 5 nights, followed by a single night the following week. The room was super large, beautifully appointed, and so very "tubby" that I am going to return at some point with my husband, but next time on hols. Note: The "tubby" designation is assigned only to beautiful bathrooms with large claw tub, taps placed in middle, perfect for two.

The staff were simply lovely, with Mathew there to greet me after work to see how my day had gone, whilst always directing me to the complimentary tray of sherries and Muscats. Meanwhile the resident kitty showed me around the garden- this is a cat that is clearly a dog in spirit.

Pinch me, this was a work trip?! The room was super quiet so don't be put off that "middedorp" means centre of town. I awoke to the dawn chorus and it was more like being in the country, but with a less than five minute walk to the centre of town. I hope to stay there again!

I think the other reviews say it all - the place is stunning.
Rooms - Pared down, sophisticated interiors. Beautiful bed linen. Comfortable bed - I had the best nights sleep in ages. Dress area separated by a partition with safe, bath-robes etc.

Bathrooms - Very simple & elegant. Kind of small, but well provided. No bath-tub in our rooms. Good quality toiletries in the bathrooms.

The House itself is gorgeous. Antiques placed everywhere, a well-stocked book & DVD library, honesty bar. There is a beautiful balcony where you can sit & watch the worls go by. There is a very tiny pool behind, we did'nt use it since it was winter when we were there, but I cant imagine anyone having a proper swim in it. Plenty of space around it to lounge around though. The garden is also beautiful with lemon tree, grape vines & flowers.

Breakfast - Not large but pretty much all you can think of. A hot option, fruits, bread, cereal etc. Isolde the manager really went out of her way to procure some mushrooms for my husband's breakfast, since he's vegetarian & the hot option that morning was eggs.

Plenty of parking space in front. You have the key so you can go & come as you please. There is even free sherry waiting for you when you get back!

the location is great. A nice stroll down to stellenbosch centre. We did'nt need a car at all in the 3 days we spent there. The staff are very friendly & helpful. The only small grouse I have is that there is no heating at all in the common areas. It was 6-7 deg. C when we were there, so it was freezing when we stepped out of the room. The breakfast area especially needs some form of heating. Had to carry a jacket & a shawl everytime I went down to breakfast.

All in all they seem to have everything just right & we had a great stay there.

We stayed at Middedorp at the end of a very hectic trip to the cape, and it was a haven of peace and tranquility that we wish we'd had more time to enjoy. The decor is superb - elegant & sophisticated yet simple and unpretentious, with an attention to detail and a quality of finish that makes all the difference. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to a warm and genuine hospitality. The location is perfect for a stroll down to the many shops, restaurants and coffee shops of Stellenbosch, and is the perfect place to retreat to: the calm quiet of Middedorp is the perfect place for a quiet afternoon's reading or snooze. Everything about this place is pitch-perfect: we will be back. What a place.

We only stayed one night at this lovely inn. The staff is so welcoming, our every need was attended to. We arrived later in the afternoon and as we settled in tea and cookies were brought to our room. The decor is simple and elegant, the rooms are very spacious. We were within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Breakfast was very nice.

Outstanding quality of accommodation and service with attention to detail. Elegant and timeless rooms, beautiful in-house products, over-sized kingsize beds with high tread count linens, sony tv with dvd library (a great collection) and the list goes on. Congratulations on your achievement. Impressed!
