Six of us decided to take advantage of a special offer and spent a night at Eikelower. It is situated in a leafy suburb, quite close to the famous Lanzerac Hotel. The receptionist on duty was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a decent size and attractively furnished and the small bathroom was quite adequate. - all sparkling clean.... More

i can only endorse the reviews already posted. This is a cosy guesthouse on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast very good. The hosts are very helpful and help you plan your days and make restaurant suggestions and reservations. The guest house is on the edge of town so it's a little way to the centre.... More

This place is fantastic. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated and the pool is very refreshing after a day of wine tasting. Francisca has plenty of advice on tours and activities and her husband is so chatty and welcoming. Renelle cooked us the most AMAZING 5 course traditional Afrikaans meal one night and it was a very special evening.... More

Francisca and Jacques are the consummate hosts, giving guests just enough conversation and advice, without ever being too much! They light a nice fire in the wintertime and keep things cozy. Francisca cooks up wonderful breakfasts as well. We'd stay again happily!
