The best room arrangement. There’s a separate lounge area with the dining table and an extra couch bed if you choose. Very spacious and comfortable. The service is good with friendly staff. Reasonable spread of breakfast with alternatives. There is another restaurant , the Wingerd, on site offering delicious meals all day. Love the fact that the pool area has a braai area, this is such a great add on and thoughtful, 10/10 for that. Loved the gym, reasonable size with a good variety of equipment.

We had the best time at the hotel, from checking in and being greeted with the biggest smiles to enjoying delicious breakfast and cooling off in the pools. Die Wingers has a great play area for the kids and the pizza was amazing. Thank you to the team at PH Stellenbosch, we will be back soon

Returned to this well positioned hotel with spectacular views of the mountain range - It is close to all the best places to visit - From the moment our reservation was confirmed by the friendly Duty Manager: Leroy, all was good - Leroy is exceptionally passionate about the hospitality industry and well knowledge to recommend places of interest - The Front Office Manager: Miriam was just great and infinitely accommodating - we appreciated her patience and faultless approach to ensure a memorable staB - breakfast is 5*, although the property opted for 3* rating - The croissants were of the best. All rooms have good views and here is enough to keep kids entertained.

Don’t sleep on this place if you are a high level Marriott customer. The top level suites they offer here are amazing. Spacious, beautiful views and easy access to all the wineries and top restaurants. Service here was impeccable and while I cannot speak to the food as I dined at all the big fancy spots in the area.

Stayed here for one night on an escorted tour. Rooms very comfortable, more like an apartment, spacious and good, hot shower. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast choices were very good, chef on hand to cook omelette and eggs. Buffet style breakfast. Bonus as a coeliac they provide gluten free bread and cereals on request. Had a lovely steak at dinner. Good service and friendly, helpful staff.

My wife and I have been frequenting PH Stellenbosch for over 20 years now and it is wonderful (although not surprising!) to see how popular it still is. Perhaps, it is because it is so beautifully situated on a hill overlooking vineyards and majestic mountains. Another reason is, undoubtedly, because the owners and management are constantly upgrading the premises and its facilities! Latest additions include solar panels that cover the entire parking area. Here, guests need not fear power outages! Also recently completed is the totally revamped Cultivar restaurant where it is (and has always been!) such a pleasure to start the day with a hearty breakfast. But, perhaps, the greatest attraction of this unique establishment is the friendliness and warmth of the staff. They are, indeed, a precious asset of PH Stellenbosch.

I stayed in the Protea Stellenbosch as part of a group trip to South Africa. The room was great, with good amenities. The rest of the hotel provided great food, services and places to relax. Best of all, the view from the main building of the hotel was stunning!

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. I was looking forward to my second visit and it did not disappoint. The hotel is so comfortable, clean and very well looked after by all the staff. It is also very handy for the business park which is a huge benefit! All members of staff are extremely friendly and approachable. It was an absolute joy to stay and eat here. The food is incredible. The options at breakfast are great. Lots of options and amazing quality. The restaurant is also a great place to visit where again the food is delicious. Amazing quality and value for money. The manager Henry (I think) was very approachable and made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our visit. Very lovely touch. Thank you everyone at the hotel for making it such an enjoyable visit!

The staff were so friendly and welcoming, always helpful when we needed anything. The room was always clean and so comfy, I slept like an actual baby every night. The heating stopped working but was fixed straight away. FOOD WAS AMAZING EVERY NIGHT Honestly so happy with the stay as we were there for 2 weeks and have no complaints at all. Would highly recommend to anyone who is visiting Stellenbosch. The only slight issue we had, water gradually got colder and wasn't as hot for when we wanted to have a bath.

One of the least inviting hotels I've ever stayed in. Rates quoted were the same for suites and rooms - however very different in offerings and experience. No atmosphere, little information on anything bar room service available in rooms. Had the misfortune to not have one but two sporting groups staying during the same time plus a big group of youngsters checking in on the 3rd night of our stay. Chemicals used to clean the rooms were so strong it actually your eyes watering. Attention to details lacking and little consistency in even the basic offerings in the rooms. I would not recommend this hotel for any leisure stay - it's geared for general conferencing.
