I stayed for three nights whilst visiting my daughter in Stellenbosch. My room had a lovely vaulted ceiling and the bed is enormous with great linen and good pillows. The tea and coffee making facilities are nice with a jar of rusks added.
I'm not sure about the little bottle of ?brandy left by the bed each night - seems unnecessary but I enjoyed the chocolates left each evening. The bathroom is very roomy with a good shower and excellent water pressure.
I think it'd be good if they provided a box of tissues in the room and some body conditioner would be nice.
I had breakfast very early each day so had the room to myself. It was more than adequate; I ordered some oatmeal one morning. They are very helpful and obliging.
My only criticism is that I had to kneel on the floor to lock and unlock my door as it's situation under the low winder and not easy to access. Not a problem for me but if you aren't able bodied it might be.
Not easy to navigate the stairs with a heavy suitcase either...
