Bonne Esperance Guest House

Bonne Esperance Guest House is one of Stellenbosch’s most well established and popular guest houses, situated in the heart of the beautiful town of Stellenbosch, which is surrounded by vineyards and majestic mountains.  The town centre, University of Stellenbosch and Coetzenburg sports grounds are all within an easy ten minute walk from the guest house and yet the location is just outside of the hustle and bustle of the town in a leafy suburb next to the Eerste river.

Bonne Esperance prides itself in their truly South African hospitality offering and finds joy in assisting guests in making their stay unforgettable. As ambassadors for Stellenbosch, they give recommendations and make bookings to help guests have an authentic Stellenbosch experience.

The guest house is in a beautifully restored Victorian Villa with a wrap-around veranda, cast iron mouldings and a corner turret set in an abundant English garden. Guests are invited to start their day with a delicious breakfast, then to venture out to enjoy the unique offering of the town and surrounds. After a day filled with adventure guests come home and see the sun go down with a lovely glass of wine and a cheese platter next to the plunge pool, before a walk into town for dinner at one of Stellenbosch’s fantastic restaurants. They then return to their charming and comfortable guest room for a good night’s rest.

Bonne Esperance offers the following facilities in their fifteen guest rooms: en suite bathroom, LCD screen television with 12 satellite channels, air-conditioning, tea and coffee facilities with home-baked biscuits, mini-bar, safe and hairdryer.

Come and experience Stellenbosch at its best!
