Peaceful and beautiful surroundings, this was a super place to stay.
Such a comfortable cottage. Everything was so clean. Basic foodstuffs were supplied on our arrival. I would definitely stay again. You would need to have a car.

Paradies für Gartenfreunde
Einfach perfekt und kaum in Worte zu fassen!!! Wohlfühl-Cottage mit eigenem Garten und Pool, perfekt ausgestattet, frische Blumen in allen Räumen und die Möglichkeit durch Una van der Spuy's Garten nebenan zu wandeln. Wir haben die Ruhe und den Garten sehr genossen!!!

Charme in toller Lage im genialen Tal vom Old Nectar
Einmalige Lage! Wunderbarer Park mit historischen Gebäuden, super ausgestattete Küche, Zimmerreinigung zeitlich nach Wunsch. Gut, es ist kein stylisches Chichi-Apartment, doch wird man in jeder Hinsicht vom Ambiente belohnt. Lohnt sich!

Tranquility & Comfort
We stayed at Old Nectar cottages over the past weekend And we were blown away by absolutely everything. This spectacular place ticks ALL boxes. We stayed in cottage number 1. Very private, spacious place. Rooms were neat, clean, spacious and comfortable. It has two rooms. One main bedroom which has a king size bed and an open plan en suite bedroom. very beautiful. The cottage also had another bedroom with two single beds and the room was attached to a separate bathroom. There was a lovely dinning/lounge area with a TV & a small fire place which really came in handy for us as we had a very cold night on our first night. Service was excellent. Attention to detail. The best part about staying at Old Nectar was the absolutely breath taking gardens. We could not get enough of it. Further more,We will definitely recommend All to experience Old nectar. Whether you going for a day visit or an over night stay. I promise you, you will not be disappointing. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Magnificent, historic garden setting in a great location!
Magnificent, historic gardens to which residents have full access to stroll around, appreciate the beauty. Great location in Jonkershoek Valley, very close to Jonkershoek Nature Reserve for hiking, cycling, running. This was a great base from which we were able to explore the wider Stellenbosch wine region.

Wonderful self-catering accomodation. Beautiful setting, attentive staff. Great attention to detail.
What a lovely find! Our stay at Old Nectar suited our needs perfectly... and then some! We were greeted with a lovely bottle of complimentary wine, and even though the accommodation is self-catering, were welcomed with generous bowls of fresh fruit, milk, bread, butter eggs, muesli, etc. We were also supplied with lovely teas, coffee etc. I would definitely recommend Old Nectar to anyone looking for a get away in Stellenbosch.

Sehr gute und neue Ausstattung, Lage etwas abseits und schwer zu finden
Die Anfahrt war schwierig, weil Old Nectar außerhalb von Stellenbosch liegt und keine Hausnummer hat. Damit hat das Navi es nicht gefunden.

We really enjoyed our stay!
Very well equipped cottage set in beautiful Old Nectar Gardens - a national monument. About 4 miles out of Stellenbosch and next door to the Conde-Nast vineyard and close to the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. Beautiful views of the mountains and the gardens which you are free to wander around. Welcome pack of groceries/wine on arrival and wood for the woodburning stove and the braai. A really peaceful location - we really enjoyed our stay!

Enjoyed our stay
We left Old Nectar 1 week ago. With much regret. With the book of Una on our table, we memories our visit every day and told some friends already about the cottages and the garden. Next time in SA, we will certainly take some time to stay with you again.

Superb Accommodation
We stayed in Plum Cottage in the grounds of Old Nectar Manor for 10 days over Christmas. The accommodation was superb. It is very private, with its own garden and pool area. The cottage itself is very spacious, has all amenities, very comfortable beds and is very clean. As guests on the Manor property you can stroll around the beautiful gardens. Mari was wonderful and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Even giving us excellent tips on places to visit and things to see during our stay.

Everything you could wish for!
This cottage has absolutely everything one would like - from beautiful linen and duvets to a kitchen fitted with everything one could ever want. Coffee, tea, rusks, muesli, fruit, milk and yoghurt were provided by the host and made a great breakfast on the shaded porch. There is also plenty of secure parking. A real win!
