We stayed 3 nights at Summerwood in February and left a little underwhelmed especially considering the rave reviews we'd read before arrival. The property is nice and comfortable so long as you you like twee design and lots of grey (which we happen to like), and the pool and garden area are nice and peaceful, our room could have done...

We had stayed at Summerwood when under previous ownership about 6 years ago. Since then it has been modernised but remains a beautiful (if less characterful) building in a peaceful pleasant neighbourhood about 20 minutes walk from the centre of Stellenbosch. The room was satisfactory if not very large and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was attractive with a...

A very nicely renovated Guest House within walking distance to the city and only 5 minutes drive to nearest vineyard. Service from the two managers was great - Tessa and Danika. They arranged an excellent and very reasonable Tuk Tuk Wine tour for the two of us. Our room was a little smaller than some we have had in our...

We have stayed at Summerwood for three years running and love the place so I hesitate to downgrade it from five to four stars. The rooms upstairs overlooking the garden are great and the garden itself is an oasis of comfort and peace with a good sized pool. The service is friendly and efficient. However what has changed is the...

We stayed for a couple of nights after leaving Cape Town to travel the garden route. Location is good, we did walk into the town for a meal but it is a 20 minute walk.

We stayed five days in the Summerwood Guest House and we really liked it very much. Very clean, good service, cookies for free, good breakfast and the place in Stellenbosch is also good. We definitely will come back here again. For your bookings: ask for the silent rooms if possible, the building itself is old and not isolated against noise...

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The surroundings are quaint and relaxing. The staff is very attentive and responsive to the needs of their guests.

We spent 2 great nights here just before Christmas. It is close to the centre of Stellenbosch & yet in a really peaceful location. The standard of accommodation is excellent as is the service. Breakfast served outside was lovely and the honesty bar is a nice touch to help yourself to a glass of wine before heading out for dinner....
