Great short stay. Friendly personal service, excellent location close walking distance to many restaurants and tourist sights in Stellenbosch. Even discovered that owner knows family. Highly recommended.

We chose Batavia out of the multitude of hotels and guest houses in Stellenbosch because of their superior service levels and customer focused attitude, as well as their very central location in Stellenbosch. Rosie and her mom gave us outstanding personal service, even though we only stayed overnight. Breakfast was fresh and personally prepared. We stayed in the Private Studio... More

We had the superior room that had a private patio. We had planned to stay one night, but when we saw the room, we decided to stay for two. We were welcomed with glasses of wine and recommendations of things to see. The next day, not only did we have an excellent buffet and warm breakfast, but the owner brought... More

The hotel is well located in central Stellenbosch with easy access to routes out the town. It is impeccably run and beautifully decorated. The team on duty go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. This is my second stay at this fantastic hotel. I will definitely go back again.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we did vineyard tours and it was perfectly situated for walking into central Stellenbosch and the restaurants. The hotel is small but beautifully decorated and the staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming, with one member of the team even walking to a nearby restaurant to book us a table!

Warmly welcomed to this delightful, homely sanctuary. Our hostess immediately made us feel at home. Breakfast was a delight to the tastebuds and the setting very relaxing. Taxi was arranged for a meal in Franschhoek - a friend of the family, who kindly waited and returned us 'home'. Taxi arrived later than expected to pick us up (hence 4 stars)... More

Batavia Boutique hotel in Stellenbosch: Great welcome on arrival and room and facilities very good. Excellent location. We used the Wine Hopper to visit the vineyards which was a very efficient and cheap way to get around. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is fantastic. Run by Ilsebet and Inge and ably assisted by Derk and others, we felt incredibly well looked after. The hotel is very well situated for Stellenbosch and room was very good. Fantastic stay and will certainly return. The breakfast was excellent as we're all other service aspects.
