Fantastic Boutique Hotel

Great hotel with friendly attentive staff.The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel has great amenities in a central location close to bars, cafes & restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Pleasurable experience

Just returned from a vacation in The South of France and the UK.I found the hotel in service and Accommodation was better than any where I stayed in Europe. From location to finishing off the evening in the bar drinking a 21 year old Jonny Walker gold . Who could wish for more!!!!

Weekend in Stellenbosch

We had a most delightful weekend at Coopmanhuijs in Stellenbosch. We were there for a wedding and to go to a special restaurant for dinner one night but the highlight turned out to be the absolutely fantastic hotel where we stayed.

“Classy relaxation in Stellenbosch”

We stayed one night at this hotel in the centre of Stellenbosch. Elegant and functional, equipped with a Spa. Excellent breakfast, very kind staff. Level restaurant. Stay with five stars, all deserved.

Absolutely brilliant hotel

I could find no fault with this very upmarket hotel. From the well adorned rooms, comfortable beds, heated bathroom floor, minibar, personal espresso machine etc. to the amazing dining experience at Helena’s – absolutely brilliant. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful and their attention to detail leaves you wanting for nothing!!

Great place to stay in Stellenbosch

Beautiful hotel with great rooms at a great price. Staff went above and beyond. Our room was well-appointed with an amazing bathroom that had heated floors. Front desk arranged for our group to use the lounge for a private dinner, even building us a fire.

Wonderful Dinner, Lovely Ambiance.

We recently had a wonderful dinner at this lovely restaurant. A very special evening thanks to their chef, and entire staff. Excellent menu; service was friendly and helpful and professional. Recommended.

A little piece of history

A very central boutique hotel in the heart of Stellenbosch. Within walking distance of almost all the restaurants. The rooms were very comfortable and loved the heated tiles in the bathrooms in the Chilly Cape weather in August. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast was amazing. Will definitely go back, when visiting Stellenbosch.

Had a brilliant stay here

The staff were very good, room nice and the restaurant is great! A small boutique hotel right in the middle of town, was ideal for my long weekend stay. I’d definitely go back and would recommend it!

Home away from home

What a lovely mid-winter breakaway we had . Warm hearted friendly staff and right in the middle of beautiful Stellenbosch . We enjoyed a relaxing massage in the spa as well and will definitely be back next winter.

A True Gem in the heart of Stellenbosch

A wonderful surprise awaited me when I stayed at Coopmanhuijs for the first time this past week. A wonderful location, friendly staff and amazing food really took the edge of an extremely pressurized work week. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Best place to stay in Stellenbosch

We keep going back to Coopmanhuijs … because it is just so good. It is perfectly situated right in the middle of Stellenbosch, ideally positioned for walking around town. It is quaint and warm and feels like home from home. The beds are wonderful. Helena’s restaurant does not disappoint … the food has always been superb.


“Culinary Experience to remember”

We had a memorable dining experience at Helena’sRestaurant in Stellenbosch, leading us to regard this restaurant as one of the top fine dining spots in the Cape Winelands. The ambiance on the veranda and in the dining room reminded us of old world charm and grace. The staff of the hotel and Restaurant is well trained.
