Malans is conveniently placed in central Stellenbosch and offers great traditional South African hospitality. Rooms are comfortable with classic furniture and there are many good restaurants in convenient walking distance, as well as other amenities.

This is such a beautiful and friendly place that it is an experience that must be shared! I have stayed a number of times on buisness and the only thing I wish for is that my wife could be there with me. If you get a chance, do stay there.

We had a fantastic stay at Malans Guesthouse. The house is authentically furnished with hardwood antiques, and the rooms are very comfortable and luxurious. Laetitia and her team have an eye for the small details and make guests feel very welcome without being intrusive. We were spoiled to a welcoming glass of sherry every evening, heated blanket (winter) and a...

My wife and I recently stayed at Malans while on a short business trip to Stellenbosch. I needed a place to stay while attending a 2 day workshop and my wife wanted a quiet place to write. Malans Guest House was the perfect place to stay. Luxurious accommodation with an emphasis on antique furniture, Persian carpets and an olde world...

Really great place to stay. Sleep quality marvellous as is in a cul de sac which is quiet. One of my favourite places to stay. Close to town. Non-pretentious, non-generic, NOT overpriced as are the very most of South African guest accomadations - especially now. Attention to detail in the ambience of good-old-fashioned-South-African-hospitality which has become difficult to find. (Am...

This bed and breakfast is very well located in Stellenbosch. Just about walking distance to anywhere in Stellenbosch that you may want to go. The attention to detail from the staff is refreshing. The decor is unusual and amost reason enough to visit.

Only spent one night here on a business trip, but will definitely keep it in mind for future visits. Centrally located, safe parking, scrumptious breakfast, beautifully refurbished rooms combining modern amenities with the older decor and furniture. The night cap sherry instead of the customary "pillow chocolate " is an interesting touch!

We spent two weeks with our greater family and friends in Malans Guest House and booked the entire house. There's nothing to complain about. The rooms are packed of antiques and flair, the breakfast was outstanding and the service was friendly and endeavoured. In particular I must admire the coolness of Letitia Malan when our two baby boys Carl and...

This is such a cool place to stay. It is a refurbished old house with wooden floors and high ceilings. All the décor and fittings are old fashioned. I loved the quirky design and the hodge podge of knick knacks and books that are just everywhere. The staff are so friendly and the place is so clean I could eat...
