Lovely little hotel in Stellenbosch. The pool and jacuzzi is not as warm as one would expect. Excellent service by the friendly staff. Breakfast was average considering it was served at the famous makaron restaurant.

Dear Tasneem S, Thank you very much for the great review about your experience. We have made a note about the pool and jacuzzi's temperature. We are also a little disappointed about your comment on the breakfast being average, and would love to know what you felt was not up to your expectations so we can improve at all times....

would always recommend ...a wonderful experience. Especially if you want to stay in a more quite place than Cape Town and be close to golf courses and wine farms than choose Majeka House. Excellent Restaurant!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The service was great and the facilities were exactly what we were looking for. A swimming pool, somewhere to relax in the sun and a nice restaurant - the breakfast was the highlight. I would recommend booking this, as it is a great value for money and...

A good hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent large bedroom with some interesting features - particularly the painted ceiling (a la Da Vinci). And a silent air con !

Majeka House is very nicely decorated with a lot of quirky details. This hotel probably wouldn’t suit everyone but I loved it! Although slightly away from the town centre, it is the ideal base to explore the shops, galleries, museums of Stellenbosch as well as all the vineyards and restaurants of the surrounding countryside. We ate in the restaurant -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
