What an amazing stay, with great rooms and service, and phenomenal food. I could have stayed forever. Thanks for a wonderful getaway. Definitely a spot for couples looking to escape the city for some time alone.

Amazing stay at Majeka in Stellenbosch, again! Staff were very kind with us and our baby. Once again we appreciate the spa to recover from long walks (and wine testing). Macaron is a good Gourmet restaurant, but you have to book before. Second time we have been there. If we can we will come back again

High-level hotel that filled all of my wishes. Especially the small but fully equipped gym suprised me positively. Breakfast & the food in general was wonderful and the staff extremely helpful. Rooms and the bathroom are spacious and are nicely decorated.

We are thrilled everytime we visit at Majeka House. We have been there at least 3 times, twice for spa and 3 times we have had dinner. Their service is excellent and their breakfast buffet is spectacular!! Would most definitely recommend them to friends and family.

I had a wonderful time staying at Majeka House. The worst part was that I only stayed a day. Where to even begin... as a solo female traveler, security and comfort are key and Majeka is an incredibly safe campus in the southern part of town, I think in a residential area. I was so comfortable, I didn't want to...

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
