Villa Grande Guest House
Ranked #44 of 113 Stellenbosch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2008

We stayed for one night and loved the Villa Grande. The staff was very helpful and gave terrific recommendations for dinner (Wijnhuis). Location was a quiet cul-de-sac four or five blocks from downtown. Breakfast was standard South African continental plus eggs, with a few nice extra touches.

The inn itself is beautifully decorated, with marble stairs and classic but not stuffy Tuscan furniture and fabrics. Our room was likewise nicely appointed, with a large, modern yet classic bathroom, luxe amenities and a very comfortable bed. Complimentary evening service included brandy and chocolates.

I regret we only had one night in Stellenbosch and would gladly return for another stay at the Villa Grande if we get the chance.

After reading Ratbike's review I felt I had to write as we had the same experience. We reserved our 2 delux rooms some 9 months in advance, kept the confirmation but when we arrived one of the rooms was already taken. Not much help offered by the owner Niel so part of our group had the nice room, we had the more basic room. We even had to barter for free air-con. Apart from that though the Villa Grande was nice enough with a nice roof terrace for drinks, nice breakfast and good location to walk into town.

Well we weren't originally meant to be staying at the Villa Grande but the travel agent had stuffed up .. and we were lucky!! It's not a bad location and is a lovely place with friendly and attentive staff.

I thought the extra Rand for the aircon was a bit much (even though it wasn't big money I just thought it was a bit off).
Breakfast was lovely.

The roof terrace was a nice place to get away to too.

Lovely boutique style hotel located on a quiet street in Stellenbosch. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Only stayed one night, but would return on another visit.

Location is excellent, room and bathroom spacious. Breakfast and service is fine. It is advertised as a boutique hotel, but the dated and somewhat cluttered decor stretches this description. Think 'changing rooms 2003' to get an idea of the style. Paint effect walls and fancy drapes, together with 10(!!!) animal print cushions in the room, are intended to hint at safari. Public areas are paint effect panelling and dado. Now looking tired. Restaurant was not open when we were there in August. Nothing to this effect on the web site. Never saw our host Neil. Apparently he had moved on to another project. The young lady on reception was lovely and so helpful, but it had the feel of hotel rather than guest house. There was nothing personal about the service. We were given a map and major landmarks and restaurants pointed out to us.

Had two nights here and it was excellent for the price we paid.
It was very clean, breakfast was good, service was great and helpful.

Centrally located and safe to walk at night to and from.
