We were warmly welcomed and received by the stand-in host, but felt ripped off by the price for value of the room. The shower was tiny, the curtains couldn't close - too skimpy, the towels ancient and thin and the room generally very ordinary. However the bed linen was lovely, and the beds comfortable.

The bad part is that you have to carry bags from the car because of the gravel on the yard. The house we stayed in had bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. It was very nice and felt safe to stay there and we also and a little nice garden.

We spent two days at The Stables Lodge, and it was perfect for our stay. Ilaria is super hospitable and friendly, the room was spacious and comfy, and the location is really great, near Lanzerac estate. Definitely a great value for money !

We visited Stellenbosch again after living there for three years. This little B&B was perfect for our stay. The staff were very friendly, room (Comfy Twin) was - indeed - comfortable and breakfast was perfect. We will be visiting again.

Cannot fault the hospitality received - nothing was too much trouble. Clean and comfortable with a great location without the noise of the town. Very close proximity to Lanzerac as well as the town centre.

We loved our stay at The Stables Lodge in Stellenbosch. Our son was playing in a rugby tournament and we just needed a place to stay for the night with our 2 boys - and needed a B&B with inter-leading rooms. Stables was a great option, a gorgeous room with everything we needed, separate (but inter-leading) room for our boys....

The reason our stay at the Stables Lodge has been so nice, is mainly because of the hospitality of Ilaria. She is a very heart warming person and always willing to give advise for activities in the surroundings. She's even recommended another nice accommodation near Addo Elephant park.The apartment is clean and very nice decorated. I will surely recommend to...
