De Hoek Manor is a Stellenbosch gem that never disappoints. If you’re thinking of staying at De Hoek Manor, here’s what you can expect:

1. You will feel welcomed by the top-notch hospitality; they are very accommodating, kind, and helpful.

2. A neat, tidy and clean environment. I couldn’t find anything to complain about. Their COVID preparations are thorough and effective. Everything looks pristine.

3. A elegantly designed room with a wide range of amenities. My room had authentic wood floors in and a glass-enclosed display of the raw brick wall. The rooms are so cosy that I almost couldn’t leave. Also, everything works.

4. The beautiful sounds of the Moederkerk as its bells sound out the hours throughout the day. Absolutely stunning!

5. Location, location, location! Everything is so close! You have direct walking access to some of Stellenbosch’s best restaurants and shops. Not to mention how lovely it is to see so much green in the trees throughout the town.

It was a pleasure to stay with De Hoek Manor and I will definitely visit them again. I highly recommend staying there if you’re in Stellenbosch.

This was our second time in De Hoek Manor and again we were hosted very well by Ilse and Marianne. Ilse was very helpfull in getting our luggage from the airport. They also arranged for us a table at the Delaire Graff Restaurant, a restaurant which is mostly fully booked.
We had a nice and spacious room. Breakfast was great with excellent fruits.

We keep coming back to this excellent small hotel because it's the perfect place to spend a few days in Stellenbosch. The location is ideal. The staff are first class. The rooms are extremely comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious. Shops, restaurants, cafés & brasseries are only 5 minutes away on foot. Just ideal.

The room was very large and comfortable. It's a quaint property right opposite a Church (there are many many churches in Stellenbosch so I can't recall it's name) which tolls the bell every hour and half hour, it's not unpleasant but if you are a light sleeper it could affect you. This B&B is within walking distance of some great restaurants, galleries and shops in Stellenbosch and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

Room Tip: If you enjoy having a soak in the tub, ask for the room with the bath as not all rooms have one.

Very nice accommodation in the heart of stellenbosch. Run by two lovely ladies who will make you feel at home for sure. Our room was a good size with a large bathroom and also a small terrace overlooking a garden. Breakfast is cooked to order with a continental option. Everything is only a two or five minute walk from the property. Would definitely stay again.

Superb location and a brilliant friendly owner with a good sense of humour👍.
Parking at front door and many classy restaurants nearby.
Staff were very helpful and the blond lady serving makes you guess the choice! It's either a competition or......?!

Great property in an excellent location. Parking right outside the door. Easy walking to bars restaurants and central Stellenbosch. Our only issue was that on more than one occasion the staff had a heated dispute which made us feel uncomfortable. Otherwise no complaints

We stayed here for 2 nights on our 2 week trip. Hotel was well positioned just off Dorp street and a very short walk to shops and restaurants. Room was large and comfortable with usual amenities. Staff were fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent!

We went to De Hoek Manor for a second time and found it just as lovely as the first. The location facilities and welcome are second to none. Unfortunately I became unwell after eating in a local restaurant. The hotel could not have been more helpful or concerned. Will definitely be returning.

After three weeks in South Africa and various accommodations "De Hoek Manor" excelled and gave us a wonderful taste of South Africa and more so about South Africans. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. I wanted to stay more time. Breakfast excellent and the staff great and attentive. Five stars with no negatives. Best value for money.
