“Training to work in hotel management - visit this place!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

As a first time visitor to S Africa, my experiences thus far of staying in hotels have been mixed, some have been outstanding in terms of appearance with lousy service, others have had the worst plumbing I have ever experienced and thus far, i have stayed in two rooms next to giant air conditioning units which were so loud that i could not sleep. However, this place is a joy. From the moment we walked in, the standard of service was exemplary. Most hotels say nothing is too much trouble but they don't mean it - unless you are prepared to pay extra on top of extra but this establishment stands by its word.
The evening meal in Helena's Restaurant was excellent, the breakfast was one of the best I've ever experienced in terms of quality and variety.
The room was not the largest I've stayed in but had every amenity and was spotless.
I cannot rate this place highly enough.
Well done to staff and owner(s).

From the warm reception to the helpful check out, all in our party of five were unanimous that this was an excellent hotel. Small rooms, well appointed, excellent food, very capable and friendly, helpful staff.

A beautiful place with character, art, warmth and a real difference. The food is superb, the decor and surrounding is an inspiration. It truly is a unique place and worth a visit. Helena's restaurant offers wonderful food. The quality of the food, the ambiance and the care of a talented team will ensure that it is a place to remember and return to....many times!

Room Tip: all the rooms will offer a comfortable stay

My wife and I spent one night at Coopmanshuijs on her birthday. The staff looked after us as if we were the only guests in the hotel. The "technical" qualities of the hotel is perfect and the atmosphere is wonderful. The location just cannot be beat!

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
