Stellenbosch is the Best!

Simonsberg Guesthouse Stellenbosch would like to invite to stay in our lovely town in the heart of Winelands and we write this post to tell you why.

Stellenbosch is famous for few things…

A Town For All Seasons

The mild weather and unique terroir is ideal for wine-growing and the region has amassed many international awards over the years. The first Wine Route was established in 1971 and comprised 17 cellars; today the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes boasts more than 200 members.

There is always something to do, there is always something going on and there are o close down seasons!


The beautiful little town of Stellenbosch, roughly an hour from Cape Town, lies surrounded by the Stellenbosch Mountains in the Jonkershoek River Valley in one of the most picturesque settings in the Cape.

Best Dining in South Africa

Our restaurants regularly take pride of place among the Top 10 restaurants and offer fine South African and international cuisine, accompanied by award-winning wines. There is something to titillate the taste buds of even the most discerning of diners, at more than 70 restaurants.

This is your opportunity to ‘taste the Cape’ by sampling and savouring a kaleidoscope of dishes, from local fare to the most exotic, international cuisine.

Youngest Population in the region!

Stellenbosch University is recognised as one of the four top research universities in South Africa and takes pride in the fact that it has one of the country’s highest proportions of postgraduate students, of which almost ten percent are international students.

Students flock to the town not only for its reputation as home to one of the top universities in the country, but also because of the unique village setting and surrounding mountains, valleys, vineyards, orchards, streams and waterfalls that create a peaceful and unique atmosphere.

Stellenbosch University lies in the picturesque Jonkershoek Valley and its roots can be traced back to the 17th century. The University has since grown into the internationally-recognised institution of excellence it is today, with more than 24 000 students, 800 lecturers and some 50 research and service bodies.


For the nature lover there are a number of excellent hikes in the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. The full-day Vineyard Hiking Trail, a fairly new 24 kilometre long trail, starts on the slopes of the Papegaaiberg and winds its way through vineyards, forests, olive groves and coastal renosterveld.
