“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

This hotel is beautiful and sparkling clean. The staff could not be more helpful and gave us recommendations for everything from pharmacy to art gallery. Our room was (number 2) was quiet and lovely. I highly recommend Coopmanhuijs.

As with most of central Stellenbosch, this hotel did not disappoint and was in keeping with the historical nature of the town.

All the staff from valet, to check-in to retaurant were very welcoming. We were advised that there was parking in the hotel, but we had to park outside and the car was then parked for us off site. This was not a problem as this was free, but be prepared to double park and quickly drop your bags off before your car is parked elsewhere. Parking is difficult in the centre and monitored by attendants for overstayers, so recommend using the parking offered by the hotel.

Our room overlooked the pool at the back but was quiet as the weather was not pleasant (fortunately). The bedroom is a bit on the small side but to be expected given the location of the hotel. That being said there is a large entrance to the room, a nice little balcony with chair and table, and the bathroom in particular has got the most beautiful tapware and facilties that I have ever seen in any hotel. For the bathroom alone I would recommend this hotel (you have to see it to understand).

We had dinner at Helena's restaurant in the hotel. Although you have the option of eating elsewhere in town, this restaurant offered excellent value and the food was of exceptional quality.

Management kindly let us have a late check out despite the hotel being full.

All in all a lovely hotel in a very central part of Stellenbosch. We would definitely return to this hotel next time we are in Stellenbosch.

The staff was nice and the place neat and well kept. Our problem was room 6 was in a bad location 1) just a bit too close to the kitchen so the sounds came in from the inside , 2) next to the hall for the other side of the place so people walked by the room a lot, and 3) above the breakfast room so you heard all the noise from there. It did not help that there was a party in that space the night we stayed there. The room was very tiny by US standards and probably even for Europe with just room for a bed and space to walk around. There was a balcony, but it was even noisier out there. As we were staying just one night we did not ask to move. So nix room 6. Otherwise the staff was great and the breakfast was good.

An exquisite historical hotel with wonderful staff who were so helpful and kind. An outstanding breakfast is served in a quaint and elegant dining room. Spent leisurely afternoons next to the fire in the lounge. We cannot wait to return!

This hotel is so lovely. My room was gorgeous, the food and pool area are lovely but most important the staff literally could not have been more helpful. Little touches like asking if everything was as I wanted it, did I need anything, turning down my bed, complimentary water and a chocolate every night. It just felt very relaxing and welcoming, like a home from home. If I am ever in the area again, I won't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: I had room 9, perfection!

Upon arriving at Coopmanhuijs Boutique Hotel I was greeted by the most wonderful, friendly and fun staff. I had the best time chatting with all them and having a laugh during my stay. If I ever needed tips Jo-Anne and the team in reception were most helpful, and happy to do so. The hotel is beautifully furnished and very fancy, but it has a really nice homely and welcoming feel. The rooms are sensational, with everything you could ever desire, and are lovely and quiet and have a really warm feel to them. The food in the restaurant is top notch also. The hotel is right in the heart of Stellenbosch so everything is within walking distance. This is the best hotel and I would not even consider staying anywhere but Coopmanhuijs while staying in Stellenbosch. The hotel itself and hospitality of all the staff is 10/10! Thank you so much!

Room Tip: All rooms are superb, some bigger than others, but all really comfortable and quiet.

Very luxurious boutique hotel but with the feeling that you are right at home.
From the homemade pastries, friendly staff and beautiful rooms we enjoyed our stay tremendously and will definitely return.
The location is great - loved the fact that we could park the car and walk through the town exploring.
