We made our way from Muizenber to the lovely town of Stellenbosh. Through the tourist office we took a walking tour of the city with the very informative Sandra. Had a good lunch with lovely wine at a restaurant in town and walked around on our own for the rest of the afternoon. The tourist office is not independent of the places that they recommend and they seem to push you to certain places. I take their advice with a big grain of salt. The accommodations lady kept pushing a couple of B&B’s I told her I had seem a Protea hotel on the way and asked for the rate, she kept telling me about this 2 B&B’s. When we came back and Sandra was with us talking about hotels she asked her for the rate and she said it was 480 rand per person, but she had some great rates on the B&B!!! We drove over and it was 722 Rand for 2 in a nice large room with a terrace. No breakfast. Not luxurious even though it is a 4 star but such an improvement from last night! Large room, comfortable beds, clean with a nice bathroom with the usual amenities. Heater and air conditioning, flat screen TV, refrigerator and a kettle with coffee and tea. A very small pool and Massage rooms.
