Cape Town Central, South Africa

Very clean, beds & linen excellent. Accommodation is to a high standard with good facilities (air con, fridge, shower & bath …). Good location, central to Stellenbosch. However ... space is at a premium both in the rooms and the lodging generally. For holiday makers clothes storage space is likely to a problem. Expect to bang your head on the...

Dear Clive and party Our aim at our guesthouse is to have a friendly, home-from-home, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. In this way we meet and interact with interesting people from all over the world and broaden our horizons as our guests experience a little bit of our Stellenbosch way of life. This is, in our opinion, the most important difference...

This was our first visit to Stellenbosch for more than 10 years. An Dorpstraat guest House very is easy to find even without a GPS and we received very warm welcome from the owners. The room took some getting used to for me (195 cm tall) because of low roof beams in the corners. Other than that the room was...

Charming hosts where nothing is too much trouble. They are very knowledgeable on the local area. The location is good, being on a quiet street on the edge of Stellenbosch, with secure car parking and a short and easy walk to restaurants, shops and attractions. Everything was very clean. The breakfast is made to order in front of you, as...

Every detail in Aan Dorpstrat has been thought about and chosen with care. Room 7 is a delight. The bed is extremely comfortable (where else have you found three pillows of different thickness ?), there is fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge (which is noiseless), the en suite is luxurious with a large shower, the towels are fluffy....

Situated just off the 'main drag' and only 10 mins walk from the centre of town, this is a lovely bnb run by a very friendly couple.
