The Guest House is located in the heart of historic Stellenbosch and is therefore very well located to explore the town on foot. It is also really easy to get to by car and has off-road parking which is important as parking in Stellenbosch is at a premium. The house itself is quite charming, my room was well furnished, warm...

I stayed in the Bonne Esperance 1 bedroom apartment, it was clean, hygienic and very well furnished. The apartment filled all my requirements including kitchen appliances and utensils. It was very centrally situated, perfect for all that I had to do in Stellenbosch. Highly recommended! As a single traveller I felt totally secure.

Because the B&B was not fully booked for the night, we were upgraded to a bigger room without even asking which is very kind and considerate of the staff. The breakfast is great, nice selection of both hot and cold.

Friendly and helpful Receptionist, comfortable room with tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Breakfast was good, only suggestion would be to have a different coffee set up - coffee plungers or something similar not the big brewing pots. Liked the fact that there was on site parking..

Bonne Esperance was overall an excellent choice. The service was professional. The staff went the extra mile to accommodate us in finding an extra room at short notice. The breakfast was very tasty and well prepared.

Stayed at Bonne Esperance for a 5 day conference at Univ of Stellenbosch. My room was not far from the front entrance. Despite that, I had very good sleep. Also, had views to the central garden. BE's exterior is made more attractive by beautiful plantings, showing off the best of the Cape's flora. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, and there...
