          Exceptional”

          As I was visiting Stellenbosch for a work trip, I needed a place with late check out since my daughter was travelling with me. I emailed several places and only Summerwood replied positively to my request for a late checkout. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Our room was beautiful, clean and had comforts such as a fridge (with fresh milk for coffee - never had that before in a hotel room). The property has parking and WiFi was great. There is a pool on the property with rabbits roaming the grounds. They provided free coffee facilities with free candy and cupcakes. The staff thought of everything anyone may need. We would definitely stay there again!

          Absolutely incredible - do not miss the opportunity to stay here, cannot recommend enough! ”

          Summerwood is a beautifully decorated and wonderfully run guesthouse. The rooms themselves are spotless and comfortable, with simple stylish taste. The shared areas are cosy and the outside breakfast space and garden is like a little retreat. There are bikes to rent and the breakfast was delicious and fresh. But most of all, the people really made our stay - everyone was so lovely and so helpful, we couldn’t have asked for more. The recommendations and help with bookings was invaluable - thank you all again. Can’t wait to be back already!

          Poor first impression”

          Whilst the property is in a good location and is clean, first impressions are important and this was a poor one. We were given two forms to review and sign, the first reasonably is for check in but the second was a comprehensive list of do’s and don’ts. This list was quite long and did not present a welcoming approach. The breakfast was average at best. We will look to stay elsewhere in our next visit to Stellenbosch.

          Small cozy guesthouse with a great honesty bar. Loved the poolside day beds, swings and bean bags! Perfect for a nice relaxing afternoon after a good drive there from Cape Town. Breakfast was delicious and we also made good use of their bicycles to get around town and to one winery. Our hosts were lovely and always tried to make things easier for us - getting snacks for our afternoon drink, and recommending good places to visit. Great value for $ and will definitely go back if we had the chance!
