“A perfect location in Stellenbosch”
Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

We were warmly welcomed at this stylish and well positioned small hotel, on a corner in the most beautiful part of town. There were interesting shops, art galleries and places to eat nearby. We would recommend this to any visitor to Stellenbosch.

This is our second stay at De Hoek Manor, and we were given a wonderful welcome back when we made the booking, AND when we arrived. We love the position, especially as parking in Stellenbosch town is impossible, quite congested most days and nights, so to be staying at a hotel with parking, and close to ALL shops, sightseeing in the town, and cafes and restaurants....all within in a few minutes of walking is a treat. Attention to detail here is wonderful, and with personal service. Rooms are spacious, clean and lovely linens. Everything is supplied from gowns to toiletries and every evening a 'turn down' along with exquisite luxury chocolates and a pretty decanter of port/sherry to enjoy at bedtime, and fresh lavender on the pillow! Everything is a treat here! breakfasts are beautifully served with everything you could desire, and
again fresh lavender adorns your place setting. De Hoek Manor knows how to 5* spoil you...and ...without the 5* price!! I think very good value for what you get. Our stays here have made each time in Stellenbosch a JOY! Thank you everyone there.

De Hoek Manor is a beautiful, relatively small guest house located in downtown Stellenbosch, just a block or two from dozens of cafes, restaurants, and shops. And it's right in the middle of South Africa's beautiful wine country, so it's a perfect "home base" for wine tasting and visits to the wine estates.

The room we stayed in was very well appointed -- big, comfortable bed with luxurious linens, spacious bathroom with modern fixtures, and tasteful décor. The little details were noticed and appreciated, including turn-down service and a small bottle of port before bed. Breakfast was included and was comprised of a generous spread of cold items (breads, jams, fruit, yogurt, cereals) and a made-to-order hot component as well (eggs, tomatoes, beans, toast, sausage). The staff was courteous, efficient, and professional.

Individual rooms with high comfort. Our room had only a small window, but that is due to the style of the building. Other rooms had bigger windows. Comfortable beds and spacious bathroom. The breakfast was very good, fresh and all wishes have been fulfilled. Nice presentation. The location is excellent for starting a tour in Stellenbosch town and also to tour some of the wineyards. Just the the church opposite the Hotel has a bell and that could be disturbing for the ones that do not have a deep sleep.

I stayed at De Hoek Manor last week for 1 night with my 2 daughers. Ilse was very gracious and welcoming! They served a delicious and filling breakfast, and the bed was very comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Ideally situated for the centre of Stellenbosch, and ideal for the wineries in the area as well as Franschoek and Paarl. Cape Town is not too far away. Really spacious bedroom and large bathroom with walk in shower. Very comfortable beds, and the turn down service is a nice touch. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A decent breakfast is served, with a good choice of eggs, bacon, sausage etc as well as breads, fruit and cereals. A very big thank you to Ellian (Linke?) when I could not access my case, and she phoned her sister to bring some tools.
