We booked last minute for one night at first and ended up extending for a second night. Our room was spacious, clean, and fully equipped with a shower + tub, minibar, Nespresso machine, and more. Andrew, the owner, was friendly, accommodating, and available to answer all of our questions. While the lodge isn't located inside Stellenbosch, it's just a short,... More

Stayed here for a weekend with my partner. We were upgraded and had the deluxe room. The room and bathroom were fantastic and relaxing, very spacious and loved the table and chairs outside our sliding door. We used the pool and tennis facilities which were right outside our room. The staff was helpful with information as to how to get... More

We found this place in a boutique accommodation guide for South Africa in which i booked my entire trip through visiting the garden route. Unfortunately for us, there wasn't too much nice about this place. Very dated and expensive for what it was. Wouldnt recommend.

We booked only one night on our way to Karoo National Park. At Ons Genot we had the best bed and crispy linen of our whole holiday ! However we had the impression that the place needs some maintenance.

This was my first visit to Ons Genot. What a delightful place in such a tranquil place. We took over most of the guesthouse for the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Marleen and Eric. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with classy rustic decor. There is a peaceful courtyard where one can relax. For people who...

Very delightful stay with comfortable neat rooms. Kids loved to roam around the beautiful gardens and duck pond. Will definitely be back. Conveniently located close enough to all major attractions with a real country feeling. Very hospitable and friendly staff making you feel at home. Thank you.

What a lovely guest house... but we were truly disappointed with the breakfast offering and service. The staff at the restaurant were very unprofessional and uninformed... a recipe for disaster. After waiting for 15 minutes for a glass of water, we opted to have breakfast elsewhere. But yet again... apart from the breakfast, we had a lovely stay.

Uncomfortable pillows and noisy staff. For a 4 star establishment there's an awful lot of creaking and squeaking going on of door handles and floor boards. Not impressed with the lack of aircon and shower head.. Very pricey and not so nicey.
