This was by far my favorite stop on our Honeymoon. Friendly staff, beautiful location and good food. Usually this comes with a high price, however this was not the case. Thank you Summerwood Guest House, we will definitively see you in the future.

Excellent service! The guesthouse is lovely and they recommended a great wine tour! The wine offered as a gift for our honeymoon by the Manager was a special detail, just like the place! SPECIAL! PS - get some bikes and explore the town, the guesthouse has some nice bikes as a courtesy!

The rooms required maintenance and were in a shabby state. No shampoo or conditioner in the bathroom and when asked, it arrived 30 minutes later unannounced so I had already taken a bath. We were told by prior arrangement that we could get a cold breakfast left in our fridge but were then sent an email a day before saying...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you’re looking for that rare blend of contemporary comfort and old-fashioned hospitality, Summerwood Guesthouse is the perfect base from which to explore the soulful town of Stellenbosch and surrounding winelands. This late-Edwardian grand dame was built in 1904 and has since been creatively renovated to cater for the cosmopolitan tastes of the modern traveller. With its large swimming pool and location in a leafy suburb of Stellenbosch, Summerwood has become the go-to choice for visitors looking for something less formal than a hotel, but more luxurious than your run-of-the-mill guesthouse. The eight spacious rooms boast upmarket finishes and are tastefully decorated in neutral tones, while nice extras like bicycles with which to explore the charming town, air-conditioning, free WiFi, and secure off-street parking make it hard to compete with Summerwood in terms of value for money. This family-run guesthouse is a lush haven for the sophisticated traveller that seamlessly integrates the privacy and comfort of a guesthouse with the professionalism of friendly, efficient service. Summerwood Guesthouse offers bed and breakfast: 8 rooms. ... more   less
