When travelling to Stellenbosch we always try to stay here - spotless, comfortable rooms with crisp clean linen. Delicious breakfasts - especially the picnic basket packed individually during the Covid-19 pandemic. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Tanya who is ever efficient, wonderfully caring and goes out of her way to make your stay just perfect.

Tanya took great care off us and went the extra mile. Good old fashioned values and genuine friendliness. It really makes a difference. We were in town for a bicycle race and the staff especially prepared on early breakfast for us. The race was cancelled and so we were offered the regular breakfast service despite the fact that our pre-packed breakfasts had already been prepared. Thank you.

A lovely homely and hospitable stay. The rooms are very comfortable with little luxuries like a little carafe of Port and delicious rusks with a full tea coffee station and a very well stocked supply of vanity items in the bathroom. The honesty bar is also very handy for water and refreshments.
Sadly I had to leave very early so missed breakfast.
The hosts are genuinely friendly and helpful and the location is very central within walking distance to restaurants and shops.

We needed a reasonably priced bed and breakfast within walking distance of the town and close to the Paul Roos sports grounds but we also wanted a bit of old world charm. The Avenues more than met these criteria: a beautifully restored old home, perched on the edge of town, with a river path leading to both destinations. With a warm welcome and a hearty breakfast, a well-stocked honour bar and neat rooms with crisp linen, what more could a short-stay traveller ask for?

Thank you very much Bernice for the hospitality and the service during our stay. We 'fled' Germany for some days of summer, my son's and mine pre-christmas-excursion. We found a calm and nice relaxing place, perfectly located in Stellenbosch and the surrounding wine estates.
Bernice and her team supported us with perfect berakfast for the days wine tastings and all necessary needs, up to clothes washing. This is my recommendation and my preferred place for the next stay in Stellenbosch area. Have a merry Christmas and a Happe New Year

Absolutely fab place. Bernice made us very welcome and was the friendliest host. We had a lodge in the garden, comfortable, quiet and relaxing. The location is ideal, only 5-10 minute walk into the centre and in a quiet area with the river over the road. Cannot fault anything about this guest house or the town. Highly recommended.

We really felt at home while staying at The Avenues Guest Lodge for our son's graduation - and an added bonus as it is just across the street from the venue. Bernice is an absolute gem. The staff were always helpful and polite. I would highly recommend the accommodation.

Bernice and her team made it the most enjoyable accommodating stay in Stellenbosch thus far. The Eerste River flowing on the Geusthouse doorstep, is mesmerizing this time of the year. Definatly coming back. Hopefully soon.
