A very nice experience in Stellenbosh area. Cottage was very comfortable and clean: private veranda, huge living with fireplace, fridge and tv, bedroom with king bed, desk and closet, bathroom with big Italian shower of course full of hot water. Amazing location in front of vineyards, with garden view and swimming pool facilities. Sumptuous breakfast: fresh home made products, sweet...

Excellent suites and friendly people makes this the best place to stay between Stellenbosch and Somerset West. There's an excellent restaurant on the property which means you don't need to drive at night. And you're on a vineyard with tasting cellars within walking distance. And off course you are centrally located for the Cape winelands. We highly recommend The Country...

We were attending a function at 96 Winery Road so the Country Guest house was perfectly appointed. Comfortable spacious room with beautiful views and a great shower. Well cooked breakfast and excellent coffee.

My wife and I went, without the kids, to a wedding and stayed over at Country guest house. It was a great stay with everything you need and should the kids have come with, the lawns and gardens would have been wonderful for them. Oh, and the breakfast.... Go and see for yourself... Amazingly scrumptious old English style.

Such a stunning venue and friendly staff. The food at 96 Winery Road was amazing and the breakfast at The Country Hotel was excellent. Would have preferred two bathrooms but the bathroom we shared between two rooms was nice and spacious with a huge jacuzzi bath, double basins and shower. The windows in the rooms don't deal too well so...

A very nice stay, lovely breakfast and very helpful personnel. It was our second sleepover and my wife and I will certainly go again in the future. The views of the country side, vineyards and surrounding mountains are very relaxing and beautiful to watch.

We booked rooms for 16 family members for 4 days to celebrate my moms 80th birthday. From initial contact 6 months prior to check out the service received was fantastic. Initially delt with Carmen but as she was going on maternity leave just prior to the function we were handed over to Ilana and Elana? Not sure of the names!...
