We stayed at the Batavia for 4 nights including new year's eve.
We arrived literally straight off the plane from Heathrow to be greeted by Suzaan who showed us to room 6 and provided us with pot of tea. From then on we were made at home.
The room was well appointed with a large bed, fridge, wifi, seating area plus a separate toilet and a full bathroom with one of the biggest and most satisfying shower we have ever experienced. There was a small sitting area just outside the door on the open landing.
Elsewhere there is a plunge pool with loungers and secure parking behind remotely controlled security gates. Breakfast is taken downstairs in the dining room. The breakfasts are good rather than great but they do set you up for the day ahead.
The Batavia is very well located and is a very short walk to the sights, cafes and restaurants. We ate at the Stellenbosch Hotel, Wijinhuis, Volkskombuis and the Big Easy. All of them were very good and come recommended.
Stellenbosch felt very safe most of the time but we felt a little uncomfortbale on new year's eve when at about 10.30 in the evening we walked along deserted streets with restaurants and cafes closed for the evening.
So would we return to the Batavia and Stellenbosch - the answer is yes - and we would to thank Suzaan and Hanco for making our stay so enjoyable.
