We chose Majeka for its convenient location and internet access, unfortunately it did not offer more. I must say I was very impressed by the previous reviews and expected so much more... Housekeeping needs to be improved (floors were so dusty I was afraid something would fall under the bed), staff is friendly but service is very slow - very...

I visited Majeka House a week and a half ago - i will be staying there with my family and friends during my wedding next month. It was simply stunning. The pictures on the web dont lie. It is a beautiful, picturesque hotel. Not sure if the previous reviewer stayed at the same place. I would recommend it highly and...

I stayed here with friends in December. We arrived and it initially looked great, however upon closer inspection it was quite grim. I personally stayed in the bed and breakfast as i was on a budget. It was very basic. The carpets and curtains looked very grubby and the furniture was very cheap. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable.The...

I strongly recommend Majeka Hse. It is located in a quiet , smart residential area close to Vriesenhof wine farm and very convenient for places such as Dornier, Waterford etc and also for restaurants such as Terroir, Bodega, Overture, Rust en Vrede. A two minute walk will take you into the vineyards where you can walk around – all very...

At the last minute we decided to stay in Stellenbosch for a night rather than return to Cape Town in a torrential rainstorm, and were pleased to find that a room was available at Majeka. We were told by friends that it was a hidden gem, and it turned out to be true--the room was very luxe (a nice touch...

Word of mouth took me to Majeka House.... And I was not disappointed. From top-notch service (including amazing hosting from Karine and Lloyd) to prime location in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine region via quaint and ultra comfortable rooms, Majeka House has it all for a hotel that size. I went when the hotel just opened so the surroundings...

I was lucky enough to stay at Majeka House for a few nights during a recent trip around Cape Town and the surrounding areas. I understand from the owners that it has only recently been completed - well 10/10 for the design & comfort factor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
