The service all around was great, from making the booking down to checking out. Food was delicious with a very nice vibe. The staff were super friendly and extremely helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable and they catered for all our needs.

We stayed at Majeka House on a recent visit to SA's wine country. The accommodations, service and restaurant were terrific. The spa looked great but we did not have time to try it out. The only drawback is if you don't have a car, make sure you book prior travel/touring arrangements. We were under the impression that we could walk...

I was welcomed warmly and helped from the beginning. The swimming pool is wonderful and the breakfast sumptuous. The staff were warm friendly and very solicitous for my wellbeing. There are a number of steps to negotiate around the site and no steps into the private poo.l. The gardens around the hotel are beautiful

We are seasoned travellers and cannot fault any aspect of Majeka House whatsoever. The staff make you feel incredibly welcome and special. The food is to die for and the Spa treatments and staff are equally exceptional. If you have the chance, make sure you don't miss it! It is also a great place to stay and explore the region.

We had a great stay here. Centrally situated in Stellenbosch in a nice and quiet suburb close to all the best wine farms. The rooms are spacious with a nice double shower and the restaurant called Makaron was really good.

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
