Travellers' Choice
Here at Digteby Estate in Vlottenburg, a residential area in Stellenbosch, a passion for classic luxury with a contemporary flavour is fused with a unique winelands location. The prizewinning architect Hein Visser restored the old manor house brilliantly. The initial design and dimensions of the building were retained and the original walls, roof beams, door-frames, sash windows and solid kiaat doors revive a bygone era. In addition, the spacious farm house with its typical elements from the late Herbert Baker era gained a few magnificent rooms in the large roof area. There are seven en suite bedrooms in this double-story Luxury Country House. Each window offers an unobstructed view of the blue Boland Mountains. A stay in the Wild Mushroom, a uniquely South African guest house, is a visual delight and sensory experience in an exclusive, private environment.

Great room, great breakfast and lovely staff Excellent value for money and good location. Only criticism is that pool should be heated. One of our best short breaks to date. Would highly recommend to anyone

What a lovely venue! The rooms are beautifully appointed and Tania, the manager, is super helpful and obliging. The breakfast was freshly cooked and was most satisfying. The honesty bar 8s my favourite feature at this establishment which is close to maby of the top wine estates and sights in Stellenbosch.

This is a house within a gated housing estate a short drive out of Stellenbosch and close to Spier wine estate. You will need a car, as there are no at attractions or amenities on the premises. If this is OK for you: it is a converted house, so I would say it's ideal for a group taking over the whole house and uses public areas jointly, or a large family. As a couple we found the proximity to the public area loud and intrusive, if you're at the ground floor. At the top floor you'd face noisy children playing outside. We were lucky as there was only one other couple for only one day of the stay. Breakfast is traditional and without too many choices, plain and tasty, but if you prefer to have a large choice, that's not the place for you. Room was very spacious and well appointed; Indeed - no soft pillows, but toiletries acceptable. Coffee plunger with a sachet provided with kettle (there's espresso machine - you can purchase coffee from the nearby bar area). No arrangement for Loadshedding except a lamp-torch you will receive. (No inverter nor generator). The person on site, Tania, was very hands on and when there were issues (no hot water and the room cold as you cannot make your own fire) she solved them very quickly. Having said all that - Stellenbosch and the area are full of charming accommodation options, and so this is truly not "luxury" and not charming in any way. But is is acceptable.
