We only stayed at Coopmanhuijs hotel for one night, but we loved everything about it - the location is in the middle of the town, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was large and I had a balcony which was a plus. We didn't eat at the hotel for dinner, but the breakfast was very good. Great value, great location, great hotel and staff! Would definitely stay again.;

It was a real pleasure staying at Coopmanhuijs Hotel in Stellenbosch - the hotel itself is in a beautifully restored old building and the staff is just amazingly friendly and welcoming! We can also happily recommend the hotel restaurant (Helena's Restaurant) for dinner - very very good food and a great wine list!

Our greeting on arrival set the scene. Very warm friendly welcome. All staff were excellent. Balcony room was very good - we ere able to catch the late afternoon sun. We ate in Helena's restaurant (the cauliflower and butter bean soup with pepper ice cream was amazing!) as was the rest our our meal. Car was parked for us and delivered back with no effort at all. Excellent value for money and you are right in the heart of Stellenbosch . Would recommend to all.

Room Tip: Balcony room was very good - we were able to sit out and catch the late afternoon sun.

Sadly only one night in this super hotel. Very good service. ( the intern girl working there is a treasure). When you walk through the hotel you can observe that details are very well taken care of. Very thougt through, with a quality aspect.
A super place to stay and a place we look forward to visit again.
We also went to the restaurant at night.
Good, but could be better with the same attention to details as the hotel.

I had a wonderful, albeit all too brief, stay at this wonderful hotel. In particular, I was struck by the friendliness and helpfulness of all of the staff I encountered: they really made my brief stay in Stellenbosch a delight. The hotel is located in the centre of Stellenbosch in a very attractive historical building. It has an excellent restaurant as well. If you are planning to visit Stellenbosch, I would highly recommend that you seriously consider staying at this hotel.

Very romantic decor, perfect for an intimate getaway to wine country. Timely and detailed service from all staff - Olotels made an error with out booking and overbooked, but the hotel staff organised for a room at their sister hotel, and once a room at Coopmanhuijs became available were able to honour our original booking and payment. Do have dinner at the hotel restaurant and the alfresco area - great food and service, and we were serenaded by some busking opera singers from the university! Fabulous breakfast so make sure you don't overindulge at dinner time. Fast and free wifi was a nice touch. There is paid parking on the street too.

The Coopmanhuijs was our last stop on a week long tour of the Garden Route. My childhood friend and I made the trip without our husbands. After a week of five-star hotel experiences, we did not find our experience here to be five-star. When we arrived thirty minutes early for our check-in, where to park was unclear and it took awhile for someone from the hotel to help us. While I am an American living in SA, parallel parking in the middle of a busy town is still challenging for me! Our room was not ready when we arrived, and although we were a bit early, I was not satisfied with the information from the reception staff. We left our bags and went to lunch. Upon our return, we were showed to our very small, oddly-shaped room. We had to keep our luggage on the ottoman at the end of the bed. There really wasn't any other room to place our two small suitcases. The staff was helpful in making dinner reservations for us and arranged a car and driver from a lovely young man who worked for the hotel. The location is superb in Stellenbosch. And - the breakfast was amazing! Overall, our stay was pleasant, but I always expect to be a little more spoiled and pampered at a five-star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a hotel with a balcony. We did not have one, and perhaps we would not have felt so cramped!
