Quiet and tranquil, comfortable. I enjoyed the environment very much. I was able to spend hours at night working without any noise disturbances. The breakfast was great, oh the ever fresh fruits. Overall, the hotel can be accommodating to business person and to a whole family on leisure.

This is a gorgeous, comfortable and well located hotel within walking distance of the heart of the town. Room 5 was such a relaxing and well decorated room. Loved it. A friendly welcome, great breakfast and added extras such as little cakes and biscuits to have whilst you chill out in the afternoon are a real bonus. Secure parking too....

The staff were great and ensured we had a lovely stay. Our room was a joy to walk into. The décor was beautiful and the room was exceptionally clean. The...

What a lovely place to stay. We were in room 2 which is on the ground floor next to the swimming pool with its own little terrace. Big comfy room. Just a bit noisy if you get the wrong person in room 9 above you. But staff were wonderful and the breakfast very good, just lacking strawberry jam for my...

Beautiful boutique hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch with comfortable rooms, excellent service and endless coutesy. Plunge pool and great breakfast are icing on the cake. Rosy and crew are only interested in offering the highest quality experience.

The Batavia is a genuine Boutique Hotel. We received a charming welcome and, after a glass of wine, were shown to our delighful rooms full of interesting features and personal touches. The staff and management were charming at all times. We would definitely return to this wonderful hotel.

The Batavia is a real gem. Our room was fabulous with interesting antiques and a wonderful bathroom complete with rainfall shower and separate slipper bath... very decadent and spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Loved the turndown service too. Fabulous glass of chilled white wine on arrival which was very welcome. The pool is more of a plunge pool -...

This is a delightful little place ~ period. The only thing to add is that they need to have a car guard outside for the night. It is very close to everything, but it gets very quiet and it is naughty to advertise secure parking, when that is only adequate for three or four group B cars, squeezed in together....
