“Convenient location but family unit only has one bedroom”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Fynbos Villa is very conveniently located - close to the University and the centre of Stellenbosch. However, the family unit is advertised as having two bedrooms when in fact the children's beds are in the lounge or sitting area - which is not ideal. Also the access to the bathroom is through the main bedroom - again not great when then are 4 of you staying together. We did enjoy the little patio though.

Room Tip: The family unit only has one bedroom. The single beds are in the living area.

Dear Mrs Penny
Thank you for your reviews about Fynbos Villa and that you all enjoyed the private patio with great views overlooking the mountains and garden.
It was our pleasure to accommodate your lovely family in a spacious fully equipped Luxury unit, included with a modern kitchenette, and Breakfast in Fynbos breakfast room.
This popular Family unit has one large private main bedroom with an en suite plus one extra spacious open plan lounge/bedroom. Sharing a bathroom in family units is also normal and always very well received by our clients.

Fynbos is an excellent establishment run by very friendly people with some small deficits. The rooms to the street are too loud, the breakfast room is too small. All other aspects - see ratings - just about perfect!

Recommendable! Great breakfast. Good location, walking distance from town centre. Talkative kitchen staff... Good security. Parking a little tight, but safe - oak tree dropping some sticky dew on the car (wash off easily though).

We stayed at Fynbos for 4 nights. The room was well laid out, we had more than enough space for our electronic devices ( a nice desk is provided with ample plug in space) the bathroom had a lovely strong shower with a large slab at the basin with space for our toiletries etc. We felt safe, secure and the room was extremely clean and well kept without any mozzies (Stellenbosch has many!). Reception staff were helpful, the breakfast was well prepared and tasty and the kitchen staff excellent.

Good location, quiet and safe. Very friendly and helpful staff, solving all requests. The lady cooking breakfast was exceptional and always smiling, of the old passing away world. The room was spacious and comfortable.

We stayed 5 nights in first-floor rooms above the garage. Easy to walk into town, even at nights. Lots of restaurants around, also try some of the vineyards. Nice pool area with braai, car parked in garage shaded.

Our first visit to both the B & B and Stellenbosch and it certainly lived up to expectations, we were in the annex, but it was very comfortable and the staff could not have been more accommodating . Lots of helpful advice, no probs with wi-fi generally a great stay. Chris and Lyn
