“Comfortable and convenient stay”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The B&B offers a well designed room with the option to use a kitchen if needed. It is within walking distance of the center of town but the quiet surroundings created by a lovely pool, garden and patio ensure rest and quietness. No hot breakfast was served but the overall service was excellent with the option to have your table to be set up on the patio. The lovely crockery and attention to detail reflects the passion and enthusiasm of the hosts. Wietske and Paul also understand the art to make you feel at home but at the same time respect the privacy of guests. Highly recommended.

I travel often and have frequented numerous B&B’s in my life.
I also relish in dissecting them – looking carefully for little things that might annoy or irritate me – well I looked everywhere but the searched was in vain. So do not waste your time – just enjoy every second.
10 Alexander in Stellenbosch is by far my most favorite place to stay this stage and I do not see any need to ever look for another nest - in fact I will only go to Stellenbosch if I can stay there again.
The 7 star breakfasts are superb - If Wiepske enters any Master Chef competition I will definitely not.
The spaces are charming, cosy, comfortable, the service flawless and the entire place immaculate, well groomed and perfectly situated.

Room Tip: Take any one you can and relax - all of them are great!

It was an amazing experience staying at 10 Alexander B&B. It is located very close to town so for a student like me it was very convienient. The service and food was exceptional in all regards. I really felt at home. Everyone was also very friendly.

10 Alexander is a gem of of find if you're looking for a place to stay in Stellenbosch. It is very comfortable, the breakfasts are fresh, plentiful, with eggs made to order, and the location is perfect - outside of the noisy traffic area, but very short walking distance to the restaurants and shopping. But what really makes this place special is the service. When we dropped off our luggage at 9AM, we knew that our room wouldn't be ready, but we really didn't expect to be offered cake and coffee, and a bathroom to freshen up in before heading out for the day. Thank you for a lovely stay!

10 Alexander offers very comfortable accommodation. There is great attention to detail both in the rooms and in the 'public areas'. I also enjoyed the quirky touches and appreciated friendly and personalised service.

A beautiful, quiet establishment, somewhat removed from the hubbub of Stellies but within easy walking distance to the social night life. I found my room always clean and comfortable. For me the best part was definitely the breakfast service - the attention to individual requirements and requests was simply superb and entirely unexpected when one is used to the common buffet-style. The owners were gracious hosts and I will certainly be wanting to stay there again.

Room Tip: If you're traveling in Summer, get a room with an aircon and windows away from the pool.

I felt instantly at home in this place with a wonderfully romantic garden with a pool, perfect for those sweltering Stellenbosch afternoons. The room was clean, neat and comfortable and always stocked with fluffy clean towels, and I had more than enough storage space for my huge amount of awkward luggage. The wifi was great and effortless to connect my devices to. The fact that you are within walking distance of campus and the centre of town is a big plus, and the fact that it is in a quiet neighbourhood just off the Mill Stream is an even bigger plus. There is great security and I had no reservations about leaving my valuables in the room during the day. Breakfast was always lavish, and I shall be dreaming of their delectable scones, homemade jam and artisanal cheeses for a good while still.
