If you want to have an end of term gathering Lumley's Place is the best, not just for the food(best breakfast ever) but the feeling you get when you walk through the door the warmth, love and humanity fills each room. The view you have when looking out the window is breathtaking your surrounded with the most beautiful mountains and also a interesting history. Benita and her staff were amazing. Really a place that I will recommend to people.

We booked a group of American students in to Lumley's Place and they really went out of their way to accommodate everyone! The students only had the best things to say as they were made to feel at home there. The breakfast was delicious and lots oh homebaked treats for us! It is a spacious and beautiful guesthouse, and Benita and her staff were amazing every step of the way! Looking forward to returning with friends and family :)

Room Tip: The view from the breakfast area is stunning! Make time for breakfast.

We booked at Lumley's Place to attend a wedding at a nearby wine farm. It turned out to be ideally situated for such a purpose! If you are looking for a place to stay that is neither Stellenbosch, nor Franshhoek, but has easy access to both, then look no further than Lumley's Place. It is well maintained with comfortable rooms, ample parking space and substantial breakfasts on offer. The service and hospitality was very good.

Dear MattyRoy
a heartfelt thanks for this wonderful review. We are glad that you find us ideally situated as we also believe we are quite central to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. We are a mere 10minutes give or take both ways and the traffic is very light in the valley. We are glad that you loved your stay and enjoyed our offering at breakfast. At Lumley's Place we strive daily to deliver service excellence as each guest see and experience the world differently. thanking you for taking the time out to review us. God bless
