Albarosa Guesthouse
Ranked #44 of 113 Stellenbosch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We have stayed at this guest house twice and have never been disappointed of the quality and service. Gert and his team has always been very service minded and helpful. We always stay in the same room with direct access to the nice garden and the small splash pool. The breakfast with fresh fruit and nicely prepared hot breakfast is a good start for exploring the wine farms around Stellenbosch.

Room Tip: History room has direct access to the garden.

The accommodation was not what is shown in the images or on their site at all - talk about false advertising. The room and bathroom was dirty and not up to standards of what they claim. It was dark and dingy. We had friends joining us as well and were told to hang around and book them in ourselves as the owner had to go somewhere?? really?! Was extremely disappointed.

I can not believe some of the other reviews I read after what I experienced. I found the guest house to be dark in need of renovation and run down. Mould on the bathroom walls, nothing like the pictures on the website. The service was non existent. Steer clear of this place much nicer venues around at similar price or less.

Room Tip: We stayed in Novel maybe others are better :(

B+B with nicely appointed rooms, comfortable beds, a good breakfast and friendly staff. We stayed in the "poetry room" which was quite large. Ensuite bathroom with a nice shower. Good location in central Stellenbosch.

My husband and i stayed 2 nights in May 2012. Lovely little B&B, we had an outside room which i would suggest as a good choice - having your own entrance and not being in the main house. Lovely breakfast, fresh fruit bowls were amazing! Nice and centrally located. Room was cozy, clean and nicely decorated. Owner and staff very friendly and accommodating.

This cozy, well appointed, immaculate guest house made our overnight stay in Stellenbosch an experience to remember. The beautiful Cape Dutch two-story home, spacious rooms, attention to detail, and overall quality of fittings and amenities were top class. The personal welcome by manager Gert made us feel immediately at home. The delicious breakfast included top quality local produce. The location is within easy walking distance of the quaint attractions of this historic town. Everything about Albarosa is top class and we hope to stay here again next year.

Small guesthouse (4 rooms) in Stellenbosch centre, however tucked away in a quiet street.

The rooms are individually decorated, big and really nice. A hearthy breakfast is included in the rate. A pool is also on the premises, perfect for dipping after a warm day out in the Winelands.

They offer pick up and return to the airport if you don't opt for renting a car.

Strongly recommended, I would not hesitate staying here again.
