22 Die Laan Guest House
Reviewed 14 March 2013

The nicest staff i've ever encountered on a trip. Very friendly and could not do enough for us throughout our stay. Very clean and nice pool area. Fresh homemade breakfast every morning. Very helpful in organizing taxis and trip to the vineyards. Very close to the town center but also in a nice quiet area.

Fantastic rooms, nice private pool, very comfortable, and great food. Could use a little more variety with the warm breakfast, but the rest of the food was terrific. Close to great restaurants and touristy area, but far enough that it is nice and quiet. Highly recommended.

Just spent a week at the Die Laan Guest House in February. So many great things to say about this place!....

The staff were so friendly and helpful. They always greeted me with a smile at breakfast and didnt hesitate to let me print out something on the printer or provide me with an outlet adapter for the week. Even the owner, Ounin, made a point to welcome us personally. There were a few days when there was town roadwork being done out front and while the noise was not a bother at all, Ounin was so nice to apologize and ensure we were enjoying our stay.

The breakfast here is amazing! Great selection of fruits, cereal, eggs and sausage everyday. They usually had a homemade treat as well which was always the highlight - kudos on the berry smoothie and banana muffins!

The rooms were beautiful and clean and the bathrooms were big and modern. The room had a TV with movie selections and the free wifi was unbeatable.

The location was great, an easy walk to the university or to the downtown shops.

If I am ever lucky enough to visit Stellenbosch again I will stay there without question and recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms, so book right away if considering it! Ask for a room by the pool, its q...

Our party of four could not have had a better experience. Just everything was perfect. The staff at 22 Die Laan could not have been more friendly, helpful or attentive. Breakfast was a delight, beautifully presented with an excellent selection. The rooms were very clean and well presented. The location was perfect and we were guided to some excellent restaurants within five minutes walk. Stellenbosch is a vibrant town within easy reach of Cape Town. This was a true 5 Star experience which we will have great pleasure in recommending to all our friends travelling to the region.

Room Tip: The rooms with a clear pool view are the best and we particularly liked Tilla

We have a great stay with 22 Die Laan Guest House. The room was very nice and clean and the service was great. Only 5-10 minutes' walk to the city centre. We had to leave for the airport prior to "normal" breakfast hours, but that was no problem because the staff prepared a lovely breakfast for us anyway. Would recommend the Guest House to everyone visiting Stellenbosch.

Good value for money. Rooms are good and I would also always use them. The proposed recommendation would be to provide access to the main stream channels on satelite TV. I get the sense that customers only have access to the secondary channels

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review 22 Die Laan Guest House. I am glad you had a positive experience staying with us.

Thank you also for the suggestion regarding the TV channels. However, we provide a full Bouquet TV Package as used by most Guest Houses and Hotels. In fact, we offer the extra SKY News channel, which is not standard. We also provide die Dutch BVN News channel which is also not standard. Our TV channels include all the best SA Sports and Movie Channels, as well as a variety of News and Religious channels as well as a weather channel.

The guesthouse 22 Die Laan has a very good position near the town center. Only like 10 minutes walk. The rooms are large with good bed. The service are excellent , and you really get a VIP feeling. The feeling was to have a own swimming pool in the room as it was just a step out of the room. The tv was very small and up in the roof so it was quite useless, but there are better things to do in Stellenbosh then look on tv. Personal is helpful selecting wine farms of special interest to visit

Room Tip: Take a suite in the garden as they are larger , and the pool is outside the door
