I was welcomed in that beautyful Manorhouse like facilities with a cup of coffee. The rooms are well equipped. Value cost ratio is very fair at this house. I would recommend without any doubt. The house organized very short in time a tee time at de Zalze golf course. I was only one day at the facility and enjoyed the...

We had a pleasant stay at Albarosa. The rooms were comfortable, service was good, breakfast was delcious and the manager, Gert, made us feel at home. The location is good as it is within walking distance of restaurants etc. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Stellenbosch.

Listen the few people that we met there were nice............not proactive but nice people. We were booked and paid for 5 nights but due to airline delays at the front end and then realising how remote the guesthouse was we decided to ONLY stay for 1 night. The facility is very basic,,,,,,,,,,,,,,clean....but very basic and in the middle of nowhere....

Very nice place to stay. Very close to the city center. Own parking spots. We have had a Harley Davidson tour and it was good to have a safe parking spot. Nice garden. Very good breakfast. Best regards, Luc, Jos, Henk, Mark and Jan-Piet. Gronsveld, Netherlands

Very disappointing guest house. The pictures at the website don't match the reality. Don't expect a pool, but rather a bath tub. Don't expect supply of shampoo. Don't expect sun beds unless you ask for them (only two!). Don't expect a professional service. It seems that everybody had their first day at job ... Good location and free parking are...

We stayed at the Albarosa Guesthouse for two nights. We liked it a lot. It's very pretty, clean and with friendly staff. It's located within walking distance to the main streets with all the bars and restaurants. We could park our car in front of the guesthouse which has a gate to the street. We can definitely recommend it.

We wanted to see some of Stellenbosch during one day and had only one night at Albarosa. Personal service from owner and staff, very nice room, wonderful breakfast and great location in Stellenbosch town. We'd stay again!

The service and the hospitality were amazing. Every morning they had an awesome breakfast so that one is prepared for the "sightseeing" in Stellenbosch. Pick-up service from the airport worked just perfect. The Guesthouse is perfectly situated to discover Stellenbosch and there is parking on the property. It is just around the corner to Dorp-Street and within a 5 min...

The guest house I booked, and the place I stayed where two very different images. No wifi, no service, no manners. The rooms are dated and tired and the fact there is no wifi for me is a unforgivable issue in 2016. At breakfast I was drinking a cup of tea, to be asked to go fetch my credit card...

Everyting was fine. No incidents or anything, so no major complaints. Rooms were small though compared to what we paid for it. Stellenbosch is a small place so location is basically good anyware. .....
