Despite the short stay, our time at Majeka was truly blissful. The service was excellent. They also took alot of time to help us choose the best wine farms in the area to...

I have stayed at many hotels in the Stellenbosch area and the Majeka is a gem that is still to be discovered by many. Being a regular traveler for many years, I have yet to see a hotel that equals the personalized and friendly always willing service.

I felt so spoilt during this weekend when my husband treated me to a romantic night at Majeka. Stunning 5 star accommodation, friendly staff and great food. Truly met my expectations. It is not over advertised. I slept in pure luxury. They pay attention to detail and the few rooms ensure privacy. Thank you. We were fortunate to have slept...

We visited Majeka House in the wintertime, although cold outside we got a really warm welcome from the friendly staff. The rooms and common areas are inviting and cozy and there is a nice chesterfield and velvet loungesection in front of a large fireplace with library and a tv. A perfect place for an afternoon tea, a snack, a drink...

Our stay at Majeka House was enchanting, the small attention to detail and the warm staff with smiling faces really made our stay special. However I would suggest that spa keep open some time slots for guests as we arrived to no options for bookings. They managed to squeeze us in but in the end we felt rushed and not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
