“Disappointing”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We stayed in a large group for a conference last weekend. I arrived with a broken foot and had to drab my bag up 2 and a bit flights of stairs without a single offer of help. We had a vegetarian delegate, who indicated her dietary requirements a month before we arrived. The usual meals were served and she was told to eat the side vegetables and salads that came with the meals. The meals were cold almost every night. The rooms are old, the bathrooms are minuscule, the shower is in a bath, the orientation of the hangers is bizarre, there is a small tube TV. 4 stars? Awarded by whom? Do not be fooled. This place does not deserve even 1 star!

I stayed at the Stellenbosch Lodge during August 2013.

I have to agree with the majority of the reviews about this hotel - the staff is friendly, but the hotel feels a bit dated. The room and bathroom was clean, but it wasn't very spacious. My room had a shower in the bath, and I would definitely prefer a separate shower.

The breakfast was OK, but nothing special.

So this hotel will do just fine if you want to sleep over for one night, but if you are after something special, then this hotel is not for you.

+ nice building, friendly staff who tried to set everything, good food, located close to a petrol station if sth is needed,
- wireless lan doesnt work, even standing in front of the counter, small rooms with no heat, pool looks much bigger on the pictures

only stayed one night, which was ok, but for a longer stay I wouldnt recommend it without hesitation.

Its not the best but it does the job!
The staff is very friendly and accommodating, they are attentive to your needs and do as best to assist you.

The room i stayed in was outdated if I may say, old TV set, Couch, the boards.. Just feels a bit weird! Could do with an upgrade but ok overall.

The view to the mountain is worth it, Priceless! The lounge is ok but rather small, and I don't see it accommodating 50% of the guests on request.

The towels, linen and blankets are clean and not dingy at all. The toilet and shower are clean and work properly.

The breakfast is ok. There's a vast selection to choose from, eggs, bacon, toast to cereals (different and various yogurts) to fruits, juice and tea.

Its like a home away from home, if you know what a mean. Nothing special.

Stayed here over Feb with some Golfers. My dad is a big golfer and the stellies golf club was literally round the cnr!
It is a comfortable hotle, nothing fancy. Was clean and the staff really went out of their way to help us.
We had a room with a sleeper couch, which they kindly made up for our son. They also had a some kiddies meals to choose from.
The bathroom was clean and shower was great.
the TVs and rooms could use an upgrade.
The breakfasts were really sad.... cold eggs, bacon.... not ideal but there was fruit and bread and cheese.
Restaurants across the road were great!
Good for a short stay.

My room had the most amazing view of the mountains but that is where the compliments end. There was an overhang of tobacco in my room and the rooms look tired. More should be done to compliment the view. Not value for money!

Room Tip: Get the room facing the mountains

Sadly we were moved to this sub standard hotel , we were originally booked in the Protea Hotel in Franschoek , which was overbooked due to the massive conference activity during our proposed stay. Room was not to bad,Food was dreadfull, cold barbeque food for our get together night, subsequent breakfast was again awful, all the "hot" food was cold- very disappointed

Room Tip: Avoid if you can, eat at the Romantica restuarant for good food & great value
