We booked via Rooms for Africa (agent) and paid them a deposit. Unfortunately we had to cancel and under the agents terms, we were due 50% refund of our deposit. As the agent refunded nothing, Daniel decided to refund the whole 50%. This shows integrity and committment to customer service, even at monetary loss to himself. (in stark contrast to... More

I stay over for 2 nights and was highly impressed. Very nice setting in a quiet suburb not too far from Dorp Street and great hospitality. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I can highly recommend the breakfast.

Stayed here 2 nights arriving by train from Cape Town. It was a 15 minute safe walk and the same to the Town Centre. The room i had in the main building was pleasant, had a/c, & was comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was a little dated but clean with complementary shower gel, shampoo, skin cream etc. The Jacuzzi was... More

We couldn't have asked for a better base to explore the Western Cape. Typical Cape hospitality from the owners, breakfast to die for, price-wise excellent value for money. The room was spacious with everything we needed. We will definitely be back.

Our 2nd visit to Besigheim and we were just as impressed this time around. Great accommodation, with all the amenities one needs on a S/C or B&B basis ... ample space for four of us. Daniel, the owner, is nearby for queries and advice, very friendly and approachable. Stellenbosch is a great place to visit...lots of excursions and trips to... More

We rented Besigheim No.7 Although winter rates, incredible value for money for my partner and our three daughters in July. Four bedrooms, all the amenities, spotless double storied house, serviced, and an honesty bar too noggal. Perfect for us as I was in Stellenbosch Mediclinic for a few nights, and Besigheim 7 is within walking distance. Huge beautifully manicured garden... More

We got exactly what we wanted: a stylishly decorated, homey room in a beautiful, quiet suburb. The cooking was sublime. The breakfast quiches were exquisite and the choice of music at breakfast was perfect. Have subsequently downloaded both artists!

We stayed at the 2. Guesthouse the landlord owns only 400meters from the main mansion. The breakfast is served in the main house and truly splendid. The owner provides you with any kind of help and information you might need. He speaks fluent English and German. For us the 2. House was just perfect. It's a quiet and sweet location... More

This would have received a 5 star but no wifi brought them down. We were able to go to the main house and use wifi but it would have been better to have it at the place we rented. We took the soft catering option and it was great. The kitchen had everything that we needed to cook with a... More
