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. .....

We spent 2 night there, and was great. We were in a apartment with bedroom and living room. The place was so cute! The staff also were very nice, helping us in anything we requested. The location also is fantastic. Close enough from all restaurants and stores, but in the other hand in a very calm street. I totally recommend...

Fantastic location and cute house but looks like it needs a bit of a revamp. Minor details such as Skirting boards had fallen off and a leaking kettle (we were in the story room). Perhaps a bit more effort required for a more u market appearance to fit the price? Otherwise an enjoyable stay.

Very expensive accommodation with little differentiation to justify the premium. No security with limited, inconvenient parking facility. Owner manager expect you to move your vehicle when someone wants to leave the premise. No after hour service - had to return to premise later in the day to return the keys. Breakfast served on another premise Not a good experience
