To Timothy and the team, thank you for a wonderful stay. Beautiful rooms, perfect amenities, excellent location - quiet but still walking distance to town. Really enjoyed the personal touch including complimentary port and recommendations of where to go and what to see. We'll definitely be back.

It is a guesthouse with 8 or 9 rooms. We got a big room and a comfortable bed. Very helpful personal being to your help when you need them. Helped us with reservation and booking transport. The pool and the garden feels very relaxed. You can spend part of the day here with a good book and enjoying the weather.

All good except the persistent sounds from above and next to our room as people walked on wooden floors and down the stairs. It woke us at 7:am on the Sunday and carried on for an hour. We were on the second of three floors. I would come back at a lower price and if in a quieter room.

The charm of Summerwood is that it is a historical building and as a result it does come with some creaks, this is something we have been working on minimising...

We've spent 2 nights in this guesthouse in Stellenbosch and were satisfied. We were offered a bigger room with a patio (Room no. 2) without any additional costs. Here and there the furniture was worn off and the rug had some dark spots. The bathroom was fairly new and spotless. Breakfast in the morning was the one with the biggest...

We stayed here for 2 days in mid September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very clean and comfortable room looking out over the garden and swimming pool. The guest house is located in a quiet area and not too far from the town centre. The staff were very helpful and there was plenty of choices for breakfast. There...
