Hotel Overview


A 15-minute walk from Vriesenhof Vineyards and less than a 10-minute drive to the shops and cafes of Stellenbosch city centre.

Rooms at Majeka House

Enjoy the blend of antique couches, vintage sideboards and modern four poster beds that harmonize to form highly individualized rooms, which are decorated in neutral tones and vibrant splashes of colour.

Food and facilities

After a day of wine tasting and sightseeing, head back to the hotel, for a lavish treatment at the in-house spa, and if you didn’t catch a glimpse of the striking MLounge cocktail salon when you stepped through the designer lobby, head there before dinner for a divine aperitif. With a team of culinary experts heading up the famous Makaron Restaurant, marvel at the tantalising cuisine served in the stylish dining room. Using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden, the modern dishes are grounded in the French classics so expect courses of veal tongue blanquette, pork belly accompanied by apples, and lemon curd meringues.

Activities at Majeka House

Take in the garden, mountain or poolside views from your balcony and walk through the fragrant herb garden before making your way over to the well-trodden wine routes and mountain trails that drape across the oak tree lined town.
