A stylish bolthole in the heart of Stellenbosch.

I'm always amazed that, despite the proliferation of hotels, b&bs and guesthouses in Stellenbosch, there are comparatively few really style-orientated stays in the town itself. Middedorp Manor has changed all of that. Situated in the centre of town (Midde means 'middle' and dorp town), pretty Victorian homes neighbour the property which is situated on an oak-lined street just across from the Eerste River. The space oozes serenity - from the cheerful calm of the staff to the easy-on-the-eye surrounds and it's exactly where you want to come home to after a busy day out exploring the Winelands.
