Thank you for such friendly service. It was lovely to have filter coffee in the room with a rusk - such a lovely touch. Everything was clean and neat and serviced. The extra blankets added to the room without us asking was extremely thoughtful. Thank you. Location was perfect and was value for money.

Had it not been in such a great location, a few minutes walk from the many restaurants and bars, I would rate this only as average. South African guest houses generally have a very good reputation and I'm not sure this was quite up to the mark. Breakfast was good but quite limited in choice. The room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom felt dated. (A fridge in the room would have been a useful addition too). The staff were all good and we had no problems, it just wasn't quite as we'd expected. Still a good choice for a couple of nights tho.

This guesthouse is so perfectly situated, within walking distance to all restaurants and stores. The staff and management are wonderful - such a warm & friendly atmosphere. Our room was gorgeous and comfortable. The fruit salad at breakfast was amazing! I will definitly stay here again, and would highly recommend it as an option for anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Stellenbosch.

I loved my time at Albatrosa Guesthouse.
Great location- 2mins away from central Stellenbosch.
Staff were friendly and accommodating with any request. I went cycling and got back after breakfast. They made me a late breakfast, did laundry. Rooms were very clean. Only thing is the mosquitoes! I didn’t realise there were mosquito nets on the windows and didn’t use the first night.
Would highly recommend

Albarosa guesthouse is a lovely and quiet place to stay for a trip in Stellenbosch. Walking distance to the city enter and all the good restaurant. The place is really cute with a green Bardem and a small swimming pool. The staff is really kind and caring and they will cook you a good and healthy breakfast!
I will for sure return there for my next stay

What we expected, nice owner and staff that pretty much left us alone to enjoy our stay. Just around the corner from the restaurants with easy access into and out of Stellenbosch. Not the guest houses fault but Stellenbosch is starting to see an increase in annoying beggars.

This was a late booking and we think we got the last (and worst) room in the building. The room was very small, in the separate block behind the house. The walls were very thin, and hence you could hear most of what your neighbours were saying and doing. Was close to the centre of Stellenbosch though. Breakfast was nothing spectacular.
