A few years ago, one of the owners opened a two room guesthouse, Twice Guesthouse, at their family home in Stellenbosch. After two fulfilling years of accommodating guests from across the globe and earning excellent ratings on Tripadvisor (#1/115), the couple started to play with the idea of expanding the business. Three long standing friends and mothers to children attending the same Stellenbosch school, realised the potential of combining their love for travel, food, décor and hospitality. And so the Twice Central trio was born. This year, they bought a property in Hamman street, a quiet residential street off Dorp Street in central Stellenbosch. Hours were spent dreaming about and exploring every detail of the hospitality world, drawing from personal travel experiences and knowledge gained through working in the industry. We look forward to sharing Twice Central with you! May your stay e like stepping into your own room, just better!

Comfortably warm room, clean and crisp ... heated towel rails and soft cosy blankets Exceptionally friendly host , Anina, made it a memorable stay. Nothing was too much effort or a problem for her, even keeping me company after checkout, while keeping us toasty with a log fire going.

Twice Central Guest House is a must book in Stellenbosch. Very good location, the room we had an independant entrance that made us feel at home and free from our mouvements. All perfectly equiped, designed and absolutely clean on every angle. Breakfast was excellent. Only regret, we couldn’t stay more.

Twice central was really welcoming, modern and cosy all at once. The decor is really nice with wonderful artwork around the house. The bed was really comfy and the house was very quiet. It’s tucked away nicely down a side street off a busy main road with lots of restaurants and bars close by. The breakfast was delicious and all the employees we encountered were so helpful.

Love the classy, but trendy interior and the attention to detail! The room was super-clean and perfect, with everything we could possibly need. Fantastic breakfast, my favourite is the homemade granola, yoghurt and fruit! My husband could also have the English breakfast after his granola and he really enjoyed it. GOOD coffee! Lovely outside area at the pool. Friendliest staff - they really go out of their way to accommodate your needs. We have stayed in many guesthouses in the area and Twice Central is by FAR our number 1 choice! We will be back!!!

TLDR - amazing stay with the best breakfast, highly recommend for your stay in Stellenbosch We stayed in for one night and our stay was EXCELLENT (we wished we could have stayed longer). The staff were very friendly and communicative/responsive to our needs. We felt safe with the gated parking, and the location is next to Dorp Street, which was within walking distance of Asta where we ordered delicious take-away dinner. The rooms were beautiful with fresh flowers and the design is aesthetically very pleasing. Room was clean, bathroom and shower were very nice and water pressure was very good! There was also an air conditioning unit, although the breeze was quite nice through the patio. We also enjoyed the balcony and there was a nice aroma from some flowers outdoors (perhaps jasmine?). The highlight of our stay was breakfast. We had our choice of beverage (coffee, tea, water, juice, etc) and had yogurt with home-made granola and fresh fruits, honey, seeds, and cinnamon. We then had an English breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, bacon, and toast with butter and jelly. Everything was fresh and tasted wonderful — even my father-in-law who doesn’t like yogurt loved it!! The owners came by to say hello and check on us and were very friendly and offered to help us with our holiday including giving us tips and recommendations for the remainder of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and when we are back in Stellenbosch, will surely be back. Please support this stay — they have been struggling from COVID impact and deserve to stay in business.

Stayed here before but standards are not the same.no milk in fridge ? Hardly any Coffee ? No Rusk or biscuit available as previously ? Oh and some pillow cases missing ??? It is a great guest house but house keeping is surely lacking.

Responded 18 Oct 2021
Dear Luke, We offer complimentary Nespresso pods, 4 per room and fresh milk. Guests are welcome to ask if they run out. We do not offer rusks for sanitary reasons but also because we were very quiet and it was unwise to keep stock that could not be consumed before its expiry date. We take note of your concerns and will address it. The good news is that we have survived the devastating effect of the pandemic. We are still here, we were able to retain our staff and we are committed to offering guests quality service . We are delighted to see more guests in town and reservations are picking up! With tourist numbers climbing we' are able to invest further in our business and we feel inspired and ready to take on the new season! Please keep supporting local tourism and promoting Stellenbosch and South Africa as great destination. We are ready for you, World! Warm regards, Ané

Everything about our stay at Twice Central was a dream. We were ready to move in and stay forever! Cleve, the reception staff, was fantastic and so welcoming. Ice lollies on arrival were a delightful touch, and breakfast was delicious. Owners should be proud of this stylish, comfortable and welcoming guest house. Highly recommended!
