Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics.

We were finishing our vacation in South Africa and ended our trip in Stellenbosch. Majeka House was highly recommended to us. Upon arrival to the property we were told our room wasn't ready and there was no power in the facility. A little strange thinking a hotel would not have a back up generator and that such issues are present. My husband and I left the property in good spirits being told it would come back in a few hours and so we left to local wineries. We came back at 7 pm and the power had still not come back. At this point, we were pretty frustrated because we hadn't checked into our room, couldn't shower, make any reservations to the spa, and were sitting in the dark with a few candles.We waited another 2 hours until the power came on and had dinner.

Dear devlo0104, Thank you very much for leaving us your review about your experience at Majeka House. We are of course very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We would however like to clarify that electricity load shedding is happening all around our country at the moment and has nothing to do with Majeka House in particular. Load shedding happens often twice, thrice a day for a maximum of 2 1/2 hours during stage 2 and 3 that we have been imposed by ESKOM, but definitely not the all day as you indicate in your review. We do have a generator, which due to our calm, quiet and secluded secure neighborhood can only be used at certain times of the day from 7am to 2pm and again from 6 to 10pm. We are unable to use it at night out of respect for our neighbors. Unfortunately during your stay our generator's filter caught fire and we had to wait for our technicians to come and assess the situation before being able to switch it on again. Nothing was damaged luckily but for safety reasons we could not switch it on before it had been checked. We are of course sorry that you did not enjoy your dinner with us, our chef as you can imagine also has to work in tough conditions for the preparation of the food. We have already investigated on what happened with your orders and apologize profusely for the mistake that was made at your table. Kind regards Karine

We spent 2 nights here at the Majeka House. It’s super cool designed. The staff was always friendly! Breakfast here is really special and good. They have several juices, several sweets and you can choose from the a la carte menu. Which is also good. I can recommend the omelette and the eggs Benedict. We had a big nice room on top of the main building. It was very modern. BUT a little run down. In the bathroom the walls are a Little Dirty and you can tell that the refurbishment was quite some time ago. But still it has its own feeling and i liked it. We used the free laundry service and also the staff was super nice. If you look up your hotel earlier ;) you know it’s not in the center of stellenbosch. That wasn’t a problem for us though we used the taxi service of the hotel

Dear misstravel2293, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us such a comprehensive review about your stay with us, We have taken note of your comments regarding the bathroom walls and will attend to it with immediate effect. I just want to make a note for future travellers, that our outdoor pools are semi-private and only for the use of the rooms that are located in front of them as the clients who book them pay a premium for that. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards karine

Our travel agent suggested Majeka House for it's quaintness and location. After visiting a few vineyards we were able to enjoy the grounds relaxing with a dip in the pool and some time in the sun before getting ready for dinner. Our room was very comfortable with a modern spacious bathroom. The food was amazing. Our complements to the chef and the staff for serving us an excellent gourmet meal. I had the springbok and my husband had the lamb. They were both outstanding. Breakfasts were equally as good with something for everyone.
