Guest Reviews

This guesthouse is a very good option for a stay in Stellenbosch.

It is nearby the town center and situated in a very quit area. Penelope herself is a perfect hostess and she will do anything to let you feel at home.

We stayed two nights at this guest house and we were inspired by the luxury accommodation and the quality of the room. On the one hand the guest house is located appr. 2 km from the inner city of Stellenbosch, what is a little bit remote. On the other hand the wineries direction Sommerset West are very easy to reach without getting in traffic. The recommendations we received at the guest were excellent. We visited Dornier, Vergelegen (the historic residence of the dutch governor, now winery) and Morgenster (famous olive oil tasting).

We stayed for 2 nights at Penelope's Guesthouse and it was just fantastic!

The Guesthouse is in a very nice neighborhood, approximately 10 minutes outside of Stellenbosch. In front of the house you can park your car within the fence. The owner, Penelope, is very nice and helpful. So if we had any questions about the region or the wineries she helped us to find it.

Last but not least: The breakfast made the stay just perfect! Fresh fruits, cereals, yogurt, toast, all varieties of eggs, orange juice, coffee, tea... all you need for a good start into the day.

Very friendly reception and also through out our stay

We called it home from home. Penelope was a real gem. I was looking for a special bear for a gift and before we know it Penelope had rang around, found the shop has some and gave us the details. We would definitely go back and stay and recommend to friends.



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here

Penelope was a lovely hostess, keen to to make sure our stay was comfortable and pleasant. She was also happy to give suggestions about activities and to book restaurants in and around Stellenbosch and to ensure we made the most of our stay in the Winelands.
