If you’re looking for that rare blend of contemporary comfort and old-fashioned hospitality, Summerwood Guesthouse is the perfect base from which to explore the soulful town of Stellenbosch and surrounding ...More winelands. This late-Edwardian grand dame was built in 1904 and has since been creatively renovated to cater for the cosmopolitan tastes of the modern traveller. With its large swimming pool and location in a leafy suburb of Stellenbosch, Summerwood has become the go-to choice for visitors looking for something less formal than a hotel, but more luxurious than your run-of-the-mill guesthouse. The eight spacious rooms boast upmarket finishes and are tastefully decorated in neutral tones, while nice extras like bicycles with which to explore the charming town, air-conditioning, free WiFi, and secure off-street parking make it hard to compete with Summerwood in terms of value for money. This family-run guesthouse is a lush haven for the sophisticated traveller that seamlessly integrates the privacy and comfort of a guesthouse with the professionalism of friendly, efficient service. Summerwood Guesthouse offers bed and breakfast: 8 rooms. Less

First stop in South Africa, enjoyed the lovely welcoming atmosphere of the Summerwood Guest house. Lovely pool setting, amazingly decorated rooms and a perfect breakfast next morning. Used the bikes to have a little ride into the city - just very pleasant.

Lovely house full of history! Warm welcoming staff. Fantastic breakfast. Loved the Nespresso machine in the room. Was too cold to enjoy the bright blue swimming pool, but we went for a ride through Town on the complimentary bicycles. What an experience!
