Property's Favourite Review
Located in a residential area a moderate walk from the centre of Stellenbosch. We walked into and out of town in the day and walked in early evening in daylight. On the recommendation of the host we got an Uber back after eating (R40) The rooms are comfortable albeit a little garish and possible a bit over furnished for my personal taste. However I can readily ignore that aspect during a short stay. The bed was comfortable, shower good and small terrace welcome. The pool are was lovely and the sunbeds very comfortable. Solar and battery backup for load shedding The staff and manageress were all lovely and their recommendations very good. The offer of a complimentary drink while sitting at the pool was a nice touch Recommended

They have a lovely front of house lady, named Wendy. I was in their Venice suite and it's beautiful. They also have a friendly chef who is willing to pack your breakfast for you as a take away if you can't sit and eat.

Warm and cozy cushion inside the bed. Washing machine that we appreciated after a long long leisure trip around the country and we really needed washing our clothes. And very nice attention from the staff : "With pleasure" we will come back someday.

Dear Mr. Larde. It was a great pleasure to host you and your lovely family. The "warm cushion" inside the bed is such a nice surprise on a cold night, is it not? We are looking forward to your return. Warm regards. Team Baruch.

Always a home away from home. Situated in a quite street, you are 5 minutes away from Stellenbosch. Breakfasts are amazing and you can order supper too. Very good value for money. The team always goes out of their way to make you feel at home.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Baruch. They were very accommodating and had all the necessary procedures in place for Loadshedding. It is very close to all the wine farms and main centre of Stellenbosch. I will definitely stay at Baruch again.

Excellent place, nice staff, beautiful rooms and a brilliant breakfast buffet. Would recommend this place for sure! Stellenbosch is a super nice place to stay and a beautiful city. Nature loving people (biking, hiking …) should go to Coetzenberg.
