Reviewed 14 August 2014

Once again Coopmanhuijs boutique hotel surpassed all expectations. The welcoming whether at the initial check in or an in and out several times a day is warm and friendly. I had a particularly marvelous room this time, which was spacious and the bed must have the best mattress I have ever slept on. It had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and a well fitted out bathroom with underfloor heating and lovely full size Charlotte Rhys toiletries. This time I only had breakfast there which is delicious but from a previous stay can well recommend the restaurant.
Probably one of the things I appreciate most about Coopmanhuijs is the welcoming my university going daughter gets and the no problem attitude should she want to spend the night.
The location is fantastic, so central, surrounded by fantastic shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: I have been lucky in that I have had no complaints with my room although I know some are a bit small...

We spent the night of the 2nd August at Coopmanshuijs. From the moment we arrived to the time we left everything was wonderful. We were warmly greeted and all the staff went out of their way to make the stay a great experience. Apart from the hospitality shown, the room was great, with lovely linen and a good comfortable bed and sparkling clean. We had a super dinner and a lovely breakfast, with a special touch when my daughter was presented with a little cake at breakfast for her birthday. It would seem that the staff are happy and there to ensure that your stay is wonderful. We would love to go back again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 which is lovely but has no verandah. So if you are a verandah type of person as...

Our weekend break away to Stellenbosch was made perfect by staying at this hotel.
They treated us with superb service and awesome food throughout our stay.
The location of this hotel is a huge plus. It is central to most things in the town and just a short walk to come need to see sites. a perfect base for a visit or holiday.

the food was something that we will remember for a long time. Great simple menu with excellent food. Wish we could have eaten there for a week to try out all the dishes and the Eggs Royal have to be one of the best ever.

thanks to the staff at all levels for your hospitality and warmth

Such a pleasure to stay in real 5 star boutique quality.
The hotel is situation right in the centre of Stellenbosch in walking distance from everything.
Valet parking solves all issues with parking in town and makes life very easy.
Service from reception to restaurant will top class.
The lounge and fireplace were very cosy and the finishes in the rooms were excellent.
To top it all the WIFI was strong and fast and complimentary.

Room Tip: The petite rooms are very good value for money and remarkably quiet.

What a charming boutique hotel! We had a wonderful one night stay at the Coopmanhuijs Boutique Hotel and Spa. We were greeted at the door, and the valet whisked our car away. (Note, parking is very tight in Stellenbosch). There was some slight confusion about our room key, but it was sorted out quickly and we were shown to our beautiful room, with a balcony. Our room was picture-perfect; everything at the hotel is just as lovely as the photos on the hotel's website. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the very long bathtub was a real treat. The common areas of the hotel are beautiful, and we had a cozy early evening hour reading by the fireplace in the library/lounge. Breakfast deserves special mention. There is an incredible selection of delicious foods to choose from, and the breakfast area is lovely. The service is attentive without being overbearing, and we loved the location--walking distance to all the great restaurants in town.

Beautiful hotel with excellent customer service. No task was to much to ask from any staff member. Food was excellent in the restaurant and breakfast was awesome. Lots of choices. This will be the hotel we use whenever we come back.

The Coopmanhuis hotel is situated in one of the classic buildings of Stellenbosch. If you go there with your GPS, be aware that the address is listed as Church Street on their website, but our Garmin GPS listed it by its Afrikaans naam Kerkstraat. Moreover, getting there can be a bit tricky as the direction of the numerous one-way streets in the heart of Stellenbosch was shown by our GPS exactly opposite to what they actually are. Church Street/Kerkstraat is one of the main smaller tourist roads with several restaurants, galleries and gift shops. On street parking is limited and metered, and using valet parking is the best option when coming by car.
While the building is old, major attemps were made to bring the rooms to modern standards. However, in some cases (including our room) you may need to climb one flight of steep stairs to get to your room. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was huge. The breakfast buffet has plenty of options. The in-house restaurant (reservations can be required) was good, and the staff very friendly.
All in all a good base for exploring the Stellenbosch/Franschhoek area, if you like the charm of historic places.

Room Tip: If you have walking problems are at least do not well on steep staircases, ask for a room on the gro...
