We were visiting friends who stay nearby so decided to book a stay over at The Country Guesthouse. Our arrival was very friendly and welcoming by Elaine. The room was clean and comfortable but the decor is plain and no shower gel. Lovely and tranquil in a pretty setting. Nice breakfast.

Lovely Place. We rented the family suite: 2 Big bedrooms, small kitchen,and private outdoor sitting area. Grounds are well maintained and staff is very pleasant. Note: location is not in Stellenbach proper, once you arrive, plan to stay. Eat at their restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

Amazing location in front of vineyards, with garden view and swimming pool facilities. Sumptuous breakfast: fresh home made products, sweet...

Excellent suites and friendly people makes this the best place to stay between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. There's an excellent restaurant on the property which means you don't need to drive at night. And you're on a vineyard with tasting cellars within walking distance. And off course you are centrally located for the Cape winelands. We highly recommend The Country...

My wife and I went, without the kids, to a wedding and stayed over at Country guest house. It was a great stay with everything you need and should the kids have come with, the lawns and gardens would have been wonderful for them. Oh, and the breakfast.... Go and see for yourself... Amazingly scrumptious old English style.

Such a stunning venue and friendly staff. The food at 96 Winery Road was amazing and the breakfast at The Country Hotel was excellent. Would have preferred two bathrooms but the bathroom we shared between two rooms was nice and spacious with a huge jacuzzi bath, double basins and shower. The windows in the rooms don't deal too well so...
