Bonne Esperance is one of Stellenbosch’s most established and popular guest houses.

We are perfectly situated in the oak-lined Van Riebeeck street where we are within walking-distance of the town’s charming centre and many of its other well-known sights.

While staying here, our guests have the perfect opportunity to relax in our superbly comfortable and convenient lodgings whilst enjoying the stunning surroundings that Stellenbosch has to offer


Mobile beauty spa:

A mobile beauty therapist can be booked to indulge in a luxury treatment in your room. Please email to request a price list or make a booking.


Our cosy lounge is equipped with a fireplace (on the odd occasion that the weather turns cooler for a day), a beautiful teak table at which you can play a game of chess or cards, a television with satellite/cable channels, a piano, novels and coffee-table books about the Cape Winelands.

Laundry Service:

For your convenience, we offer same-day laundry services during the week and a limited service over the weekend.


A visit to Stellenbosch would not be complete without a tour of the winelands with a qualified wine tour guide.

Plunge Pool:

A visit to Stellenbosch in summer will be well worth your while as the sunny, hot weather and cloudless skies make lounging by our sparkling plunge pool with a good book and a chilled glass of wine the order of the day. We offer cooldrinks, wine and cheese platters while you relax on a sun-lounger by the pool.


Our beautifully-landscaped garden is often the backdrop for wedding photographs and has even been featured in a local lifestyle magazine. We also have a rose bush that is over 100 years old and still blooms for us every season! Take a quiet moment in the early morning and sit outside on the veranda with a steaming cup of coffee to experience first-hand the beauty of our immaculate garden.
