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!

This place was fantastic - it dificult to choose what to harp about - the great manor or the lovely host - Annemien.

She has painstakingly put this place together in the last one year - the amazing white based design/ furniture/ fitting really give it a regal/ holiday home kind of feel - its also actually feels like a home instead of a hotel/ B&B. Its a great combination of contemporary with classic.

After the B&B we stayed at in Capetown this seems really luxurious - and we wern't even staying in one of the suites.

After you take in the decor its the little things that make the difference.

1. Small note telling you what the expected weather will be the next day
2. Recommending a restaurant and doing the booking (seeing the other reviews it looks like we were not the only one to get special treatment:)
3. Spending time to recommend wineries AND a convenient route with stops for our aggressive drive to Oudsthoorn the next day
4. Honesty bar that had a bottle of whisky - probably the only peg of whisky I had during my trip - it was all wine other than that:) (and at ZAR 18 it was great value!!)
5. Great breakfast WITH EGGS after the drab continental in Cape Town:)

Overall, she seemed to genuinely care

Only pity was that we spent just one night and could not really enjoy this place to the full extent.

We just returned from our honeymoon in South Africa and spent our last two nights in Middedorp Manor. It is the most beautiful house I have ever had the privilege to stay in! I spent my time taking photographs of the house as it is just so tastefully decorated. We stayed in the suite at the front of the house which is divine, Annemien goes to a lot of trouble to include little extras such as a turn down service, a wonderful collection of books, journals, magazines and dvds and there are amazing fresh flower displays all over the house. It is just an oasis of calm from the minute you walk in the door of this 107 year old house. The pool/breakfast area is also very beautiful, so much thought went into every aspect of the design of this house. The house is within easy walking distance of Church street and we found it very safe walking around there. Annemien was very attentive and always made herself available for advice and recommendations.

If you are visiting the wineries in Stellenbosch do not miss Delaire: it is out of this world! Combine spa, wine tasting and dinner for a day you will not forget in a hurry!

Will certainly be back to Middedorp the next time we travel to South Africa, it is simply divine.

So very comfortable and stylish, we could easily have stayed much longer than our three days had we not had accommodation booked in Cape Town. Lovely breakfasts and afternoon tea treats plus extremely friendly help / service from Annemien who kindly organised restaurant bookings for us. Nothing was too much trouble; we would certainly recommend Middedorp and definitely stay there again.

I loved this place! It is in walking distance to all of the great shops and restaurants in Stellenbosch! When my husband and I traveled here in August, Middedorp Manor had recently opened, so everything is brand new. The decor is outstanding-modern with comfy furniture.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. Annemien, the owner, is one of the nicest women you will ever meet; and she genuinely cares about your comfort and happiness!

Stay in the deluxe suites; they are just awesome and larger than the regular suites (although the regular suites are nice too). The deluxe suites are just so huge and luxurious, especially the bathroom! The pics attached are of the deluxe suite.

One night, my husband and I were exhausted from wine tasting, so we just wanted a quiet evening back at the B&B. When we came back from the grocery store with our cheese and fruit, Annemien had the fire lit, music playing, and a complete service set for all of our goodies, including our wine. What a great surprise!

We will definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it.
