Our 17 comfortable en suite Guest Rooms are lovingly decorated and include television with a selection of satellite channels, air-conditioning, hospitality tray, mini-bar fridge, wireless internet access, hairdryer and safe. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in our breakfast room or outside on the veranda overlooking the beautiful garden and vibe filled streets of Stellenbosch.

The staff were helpful and the location is good. It is also a place that offers a quiet space despite being near busier roads. The breakfast is definitely awesome and there's a lot of helpful information within the rooms.

We loved our stay at Bonne Esperance Guest House. The staff was very friendly and assisted us where possible. :) our room was also beautiful and well-equipped. The breakfast was delicious as well! The staff was additionally very flexible with our checkout time as they understood that we needed time to pack for our international flight. Overall, an amazing experience!

We had a lovely, lovely stay at this beautiful guest house - the staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and polite - we specifically wanted to call out Warwick and the lovely ladies at the front desk. The room was spacious and very comfortable with a fully stocked mini bar and complimentary Nespresso coffee & tea station, with a big bathroom with twin sinks and bath come shower. We only stayed one night, but could easily have done three at this lovely place and very much look forward to visiting again in the future.
