“A good introduction to South Africa”
Reviewed 25 August 2008

I stayed at the Dorpshuis for a few days while at a conference at the University. The service was exemplary throughout my stay. For the price the room was outstanding - large, clean and with wi-fi access (small fee to pay). Although on the outskirts of town it was just a 15 minute walk to the University campus with a couple of good bars and restaurants (especially the Rock Room) very nearby on Dorp Street. Breakfast was substantial and showed a good use of local produce. The only drawback (security consciousness) I should imagine is an issue at any hotel where you stay in SA.

Reviewed 18 November 2007

For our trip through the Westcape region we had booked another hotel in Stellenbosch as our first hideout but since that hotel was overbooked we were transferred to the Protea Dorpshuis Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the cosyness of the hotel and the very friendly staff.

Stellenbosch is conviently close to the airport and so this was a perfect start to the vacation. The hotel is again conveniently located on the edge of the old center of town and the area with all the action as in shops and restaurants is only a 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

The hotel is housed in a Victorian building which breathes loads of charm. It has of course been modernized but still can you see the pedigree. The room we had was very cosy with a small livingarea (with big flatscreen tv), a romantic bedroom and a big enough bathroom.

When we come back to Stellenbosch (and we will), we will probably come to this hotel again. It is just good value for money.

  • Liked — very friiendly staff, cosy atmosphere and convenient location
  • Disliked — nothing I can come up with
