They have an amazing service, very helpful even during the night! The breakfast wasn't the best but still tasty. The place was very nice, it is easy to find as it is situated next to a road with a free parking. The rooms were clean.

Nice rooms, good shower, excellent breakfast. Location very rural considering it is in Stellenbosch. The adjacent road is very busy and quite noisy when outside - but the rooms are pretty soundproof and the noise did not disturb our sleep.

Loved the staff friendliness and willingness to do anything to make our stay more comfortable especially Whiskers the security guard and his doggies! Would love to see an extra toilet installed in the family upstairs suite perhaps near the front door before the stairwell. It was a struggle with 5 of us and only 1 bathroom (toilet). Needed more and...

I work around the corner from Soverby and was always curious about the guest house. Called on the night just before the reception area closed. The lady assured me that she made the booking for me and that she will be gone but the security officer will be there to Welcome and Check me in(what a friendly guy-Emmanuel I think)....

Very peaceful with warm ambience, rural/pastoral setting, pool, friendly & helpful (with wi-fi) staff & great breakfast - a very central location for business in Stellenbosch & Somerset West/Strand - if you travel with your spouse she can relax in the lounge in in the private garden surrounding the pool

We spent the weekend at this Guest House and were very impressed. The welcome was great and offered a coffee on arrival. The rooms were a very good size, nicely decorated and very comfortable with small lounge area included. Bathroom spotless.

“There's a choice of rooms at the guest house on one side of the room or 3 self-catering cottages over the road based around the dam (small lake for irrigation on the farm). All are great and just ask the team there and they'll advise you what suits you best.”
