I stayed at Majeka House for one night last week. The rooms were quirky but classy and totally gorgeous with an extemely comfortable bed. Having also viewed some of the other rooms, each room is different with its own distinct colouring & character. Mine was coloured with green tones and had a fabulous canvas ceiling to stare at. I'd definitely recommend booking the mountain view rooms, truly stunning!!
The absolute highlight for me had to be dinner. We were treated to a fabulous meal which tasted divine. I can honestly say it was the best meal I had while in South Africa! The waiters were fantastic and so knowledgable, it was such a fun evening. Breakfast the following morning was also very good with a great selection of juices and pastries, cheeses & cereals plus a hot menu too. Karine (one of the owners) told us that almost all of the fruit & veg/herbs etc are grown on site, so my healthy green juice for breakfast was fresher than fresh! Amazing!!
The owners Lloyd & Karine made us feel so welcome and can't thank them enough for their hospitality, they have created a fantastic retreat in Stellenbosch. It is a short taxi ride into town, would recommend Cubana's for drinks after dinner too :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more less
