Four star Stellenbosch Guest House Accommodation Perfectly located in the leafy suburb of Universiteits Oord, which is the very heart of this wonderfully charming university town, The Beautiful South is the ideal location for both corporate and leisure guests. We are within walking distance of the historic town center with its extravagant abundance of cafés, restaurants, bars, museums, historical buildings, and antique and art emporiums. Most importantly, we are in the very heart of the Cape Winelands and within close proximity to all of the large number of magnificent wine estates that the region has to offer. Similarly, we are also surrounded by a number of premium golf courses and estates and we are readily able to reserve tee times for golf, and also wine tasting tours if required. Furnished with an eclectic mix of decidedly elegant finishes and sophisticated and traditional Cape Winelands design elements. Swimming Pool at Stellenbosch Guest House More than 30 original and specifically curated works of Stellenbosch artists proudly adorn the walls throughout the property. Our magnificent reclaimed Oregon pine topped breakfast buffets and all of our dining tables were specifically designed and manufactured by local Cape craftsmen. The spectacularly beautiful hand painted floor tiles in the entire ground floor area of the property were also painstakingly completed by local craftsmen over an extensive six week period. Stellenbosch accommodation Breakfast Bar at The Beautiful South Guest House We offer a wonderful outdoor terrace area and garden which features a sparkling swimming pool, large communal dining tables and a fully functional outdoor barbecue facility

We enjoyed staying at the most charming Beautiful South guesthouse in Stellenbosch! Ryan was a great host and did everything he could to make our stay memorable! The Beautiful South is located close to the University, making it a great place for parents to stay or for tourists to explore the beautiful town. Breakfasts were outstanding!

My wife and I escaped for a night over the weekend to The Beautiful South in Stellenbosch. We arrived on a very wintery Cape Town afternoon and we were thankful to be welcomed by Ryan, the Inn Keeper, who had ensured that our room was very toasty, to warm us up. We were then treated to some complimentary hot coffee, tea and complimentary ‘treats’ in the incredible main Chandelier Room, which had delightful music serenading us in the background. The next morning, after a very comfortable sleep in 5 star linen and a great shower, we ventured down to breakfast. We chose Eggs Benedict and a hot English breakfast from the menu, which was better than most five star hotels. After breakfast we said our farewells and were sad to leave to get back to Cape Town, but we will return in the summer when we can make use of the braai area and swimming pool. A special mention to Ryan as he really went out of his way to ensure a five star service. The Beautiful South is indeed so aptly named. Beautiful being the best way to describe it.

A group of 9 us stayed at The Beautiful South for 7 days at the end of November. It was very clean and tidy and well looked after. Ryan and Linki could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The three lovely ladies who provided breakfast and kept everything clean were also very pleasant. The 24 hr supply of soft drinks along with tea and coffee was very welcome.

I was in a family party of 9 adults who stayed here for a week. We all had a brilliant time, accommodation was very clean, breakfast was simple but good. The managers Linki and Ryan ( who was kissed by the Blarney Stone)! were very helpful and informative. The kitchen and housekeeping staff were lovely too. The guest house is a good 10 -15 min walk to the centre of Stellenbosch but that meant it was quiet at night, When we were there a lot of the students had gone home for the holidays so not too noisy. We booked ubers back at night (which cost about £1.50 to £2 for 4 people. The pool was clean and welcoming. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!!

My colleague and I stayed at The Beautiful South Guest House for more than a week. We stayed in a couple of guest houses in Stellenbosch the past year and we couldn’t have asked for a better place than The Beautiful South Guesthouse. It is safe and secure and it id a beautiful place. The rooms ate clean and beautiful. The food is perfect and the Manager, Ryan, is absolutely the best. Looking at our every need and spending time with guests. He assist wherever possible and can give you advice on places to visit like no one else can. I am sure he knows more about Stellenbosch and the surroundings than any other local person. The stay was well worth the money and it is really not expensive to stay here. I will definitely come back and stay here again. Well done. You are doing an excellent job.
