We have no hesitation recommending Penelope's to anyone wanting to visit Stellenbosch and surrounds. Its perfectly located with great views of the mountain. The Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden which is close by is a must see.

Enjoyed the stay, but we thought we were heavily penalised for genuine accidental damage to one of the rooms. We thought this was not right, considering Penelope's is in the hospitality game, where accidents do happen.

Dear Mark I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding your comment about the extra professional cleaning charges: we have been in the hospitality business for many years, but never before has this type of damage occurred to our linen. Yes, accidents do happen, but not for three consecutive nights. I do hope this clarifies the matter. Regards Penelope

We stayed at Penelope's for a restful end to our South African holiday. Safe area where we could walk to town and a local restaurant. Fresh flowers, cookies and coffee pods replaced daily. Shared kitchenette for self catering. Wonderful garden with pool and very comfy sun loungers.

Stayed for two nights with my partner. We really enjoyed the beautiful garden and lovely big bed. Penelope was extremely welcoming and gave great advice for the area - she also put on a great spread for breakfast and got me a little extra something. Such a kind gesture!
