Style in Stellenbosch

Everything about this hotel was excellent. Checking in (we arrived early) was straightforward and the reception staff were most helpful. Our rooms were beautiful, stylish and comfortable. Breakfasts were the best we experienced in our time in South Africa. The hotel location is central and it is easy walking to a wide range of restaurants and shops. Overall nothing negative to say about this hotel.
