Stayed for 2 nights and it was so relaxing and peaceful! The staff was really awesome, we wanted to go on a vineyard tour at the last minute and they made some calls to make it happen for us. The grounds were beautifully manintained. We took a walk one morning, around the neighborhood and came across the Vriesenhof vineyard. Don't...

Lovely stay at Majeka. The staff were exceptional, specifically Wonder and reception. Rooms were beautiful. The restaurant doesn't offer a big variety and although the food quality was excellent, the portions were too small and not as filling as we would've thought.

The accommodation is peaceful, relaxing and beautifully maintained. The staff were absolutely fantastic! They are attentive, smiling and chatting but also very discrete; they were willing to help with anything: booking wine tours, cars and restaurants. I would recommend this place to everyone!

I did not know what to expect, but this boutique hotel was like a piece of hidden paradise. Room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Staff was lovely. The spa was so relaxing - not to mention the pool! Highly recommended!

Majeka house is surrounded by beautiful Stellenbosch winelands and mountain scenary while offering a really modern and fun design. Rooms are beautifully decorated with amazing beds. The outside resembles the Jardin Majorelle with bright blue accents and cacti. Don't miss a dinner at amazing Makaron Restaurant, one of the best in the area!

Dear E1984HGmichelea, Thank you very much for your review. First of all please note that we find your comments about "2 German throwing you out" very derogatory. You were seating at a semi-private pool area which was not allocated to your room. Your Poolside room had its own semi-private swimming pool available to you. We understand you disliked the food...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
