Guest Book

The best hotel I have ever stayed in! Simply sensational! New hotel, beautiful room, spacious and with a unique view of Mount Simonsberg, breakfast with many varieties of food and drink, great service and we were welcomed with a bottle of local champagne. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend this location to couples and travellers who are passionate about lodging with outstanding views.

PS: After meeting more than 41 countries and more than 125 different cities, I choose this hotel as my favourite!

The website already looked very promising but this recently opened guesthouse in the Banhoek Valley exceeded all of my expectations!

Welcomed by a nice glass of Limoenkloof M├ęthode Cap Classique (private label bubbly) I was taken to my room. Room 1 in the Manor House. This room and the whole of the guest house is very very beautifully decorated! All the rooms are different. You can book the room you want on the site! I love that. My spacious room also had a sitting area with fireplace and a private garden with even an outdoor bathtub!

I can definitely recommend this guest house. Breathtaking views, surrounded by mountains and vineyards (and wineries..). Read: spectacular sunrises and sunsets! Beautiful garden, great pool and sundeck. Lovely lounges where you can sit, relax and read a book. Lots of books everywhere.

Luxury all over.
Excellent breakfast with everything you can wish for.
And not in the least: wonderful staff, good service and personal attention! I felt so welcome and was taken such good care of. Thanks, Johanna and the rest of the De Zeven team.
I will be back!

We travelled as a party of four, occupying two Barn Rooms at De Zeven for two nights towards the end of March. The guest house is beautifully furnished and with spectacular views throughout. This applies whether you are in your room, the pool, or the lounge areas. Everything about the place is breathtaking. The breakfast was excellent, and Johanna went above and beyond to ensure our expectations were exceeded throughout the stay. After two nights we didn't want to leave. We will certainly stay again if we are in the Stellenbosch-Franschhoek area in the future!

One of the most unique locations in the Winelands offering incredible views, a serene environment and the perfect location between both Stellenbosch and Franschhoek from which to explore both towns. Their staff are hugely accommodating and will undertake every effort to make your stay memorable. Would definitely recommend this magnificent guesthouse for guests expecting an extraordinary breakaway.

Our stay at De Zeven was very enjoyable. We were greeted with a refreshing bottle of Limoenkloof wine, a fitting introduction to a guesthouse that we are sure to return to.

The suites are excellently planned and furbished, with a view over the Banhoek Valley that will surely impress. The main house has a cozy atmosphere and the staff are very friendly.

I highly recommend De Zeven Guesthouse and rate it as one of the best luxury guesthouses in the Stellenbosch region.
