The hotel is well located in central Stellenbosch with easy access to routes out the town. It is impeccably run and beautifully decorated. The team on duty go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. This is my second stay at this fantastic hotel. I will definitely go back again.

The hotel is small but beautifully decorated and the staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming, with one member of the team even walking to a nearby restaurant to book us a table! The one negative I...

Warmly welcomed to this delightful, homely sanctuary. Our hostess immediately made us feel at home. Breakfast was a delight to the tastebuds and the setting very relaxing. Taxi was arranged for a meal in Franschhoek - a friend of the family, who kindly waited and returned us 'home'. Taxi arrived later than expected to pick us up (hence 4 stars)...

Batavia Boutique hotel in Stellenbosch: Great welcome on arrival and room and facilities very good. Excellent location. We used the Wine Hopper to visit the vineyards which was a very efficient and cheap way to get around. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is fantastic. Run by Ilsebet and Inge and ably assisted by Derk and others, we felt incredibly well looked after. The hotel is very well situated for Stellenbosch and room was very good. Fantastic stay and will certainly return. The breakfast was excellent as we're all other service aspects.

Lovely boutique hotel in walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room had all the required amenities expected at a 5* establishment. But what sets this hotel above all the rest, is the outstanding level of hospitality offered to guests by the Châtelaine, Ilzebet and her team. Superb.
