I was very impressed by the hospitality at 5 Seasons Guest House during my recent trip to the historic town of Stellenbosch.
This 4-Star establishment is located in a quiet, upmarket area of Stellenbosch – just five minutes from the town centre. During your visit to the area, you can expect to meet the town’s friendly locals at a host of lively local events – from art, music and history to outdoor pursuits.
The Stellenbosch area also has natural scenery that will rival even the area’s famed, fine grapes.
On arrival, my colleague and I were warmly greeted at the entrance by Lee, the Junior Assistant Manager at 5 Seasons Guest House. Our accommodation for the night was their luxurious Executive Suite. We found a complimentary Sherry tray and a welcome note – which was very thoughtful of them.
Inside, the guest house is decorated in warm, earthy tones. Our two-person suite was upstairs and came with a lounge and dining area, which can entertain six guests; a private entrance, DStv; safe; air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi access.
There was also a semi-equipped kitchenette with a fridge. I found this suite suitable for long-stay guests or those, who need more privacy and space.
The bedroom was elegantly decorated and furnished with a King-size bed and a full, en-suite bathroom. You could not miss the attention to detail that if found throughout the guest house.
Chanel, the Manager, and her friendly staff will welcome you in their cozy dining area for breakfast. There is also an option to sit outside on the terrace. Each morning, a cold buffet or warm breakfast is made to your order or choice. I can recommend their vegetarian omelets!
Your host and guest house owner, Siebrits Laker, says “We take pride in sharing our little secrets about the area with our guests and we will be able to recommend you the best places to suit your taste.”

Reviews from previous 5 Seasons Guest House guests
“We stayed at 5 Seasons to celebrate our Anniversary. What an absolutely awesome experience! Relaxing by the pool with a glass of champagne – so peaceful! Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was amazing and beautifully decorated. And the next morning, we were treated to a lovely breakfast in the dining room. Thank you for making our Anniversary extra special,” wrote Ricci on their TripAdvisor page.
lsteen466469 added; “This was a first to be on ‘WhatsApp terms’ with the establishment, but it made arrangements so much easier as our flight was delayed for hours and we arrived very late at night, just to be greeted by very friendly staff who waited up for us. Then when we had to leave before breakfast was served days later, we were surprised with a tray with cold eats left in our room the night before.”
“We took our American friends there and they loved it. The rooms were lovely, ample parking, friendly hostess Chanel. My husband often uses 5 Seasons for his business trips, so we knew we were going to the best,” said hverma125099.
