About Bonne Esperance Stellenbosch Accommodation

Bonne Esperance

Come and experience top quality accommodation at Bonne Esperance Guest House situated in the heart of the historic town of Stellenbosch, the capital of the Cape Winelands. This elegant bed and breakfast is housed in a beautifully restored Victorian villa, complete with a wrap-around veranda, lace-like cast-iron trims (known as “broekie lace”) and a genuine corner turret. Whether you are a holiday maker or are visiting Stellenbosch for business purposes, Bonne Esperance offers fantastically convenient and supremely comfortable guest house accommodation. Our guest house is located diagonally opposite Stellenbosch’s beautiful Botanical Gardens and we are a five-minute walk away from the town’s centre, so if you have an appointment to keep or would simply like to explore a bit, just amble down the oak-lined Van Riebeeck street with the Old Mill stream flowing alongside you as nature’s accompaniment to your walk into our celebrated town.

Bonne Esperance’s villa in Stellenbosch was originally built in 1901 and has retained the same charm and ambience of that era but with the added luxuries of the modern age. This charming Stellenbosch guest house has 15 individually decorated rooms, each including an air-conditioner, an LCD-screen television with ten satellite channels, wireless internet access, tea and coffee-making facilities, a mini-bar fridge, a hairdryer and a safe. You can enjoy a delicious full breakfast in our cosy, butter-yellow breakfast room or outside on the veranda overlooking the immaculate garden. You can expect friendly and informative hospitality from your hosts Annemien, Maroli, Latitia and the rest of the Bonne Esperance Guest House team who are committed to catering to your needs and making your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Testament to our love for, pride in, and dedication to what we do, Bonne Esperance Guest House received three prestigious awards in 2011: the AA Accommodation Awards voted us the Western Cape regional winner in the Large Guest House category, guests on voted us the best three-star hotel in Stellenbosch, and awarded us a certificate of excellence for being in the top 10% of accommodation establishments in the world. We were also one of the finalists in the AA Travel Guides American Express Accommodation Awards in the category of Bed and Breakfast Guest House Style – Large. This was no mean feat seeing as we were the only three-star guest house to make it to the top five whilst competing against other four-star and five-star establishments.
