Dip into the food, art and history of Stellenbosch, with these carefully curated special packages
The award-winning Eendracht Hotel & Apartments in Dorp Street in the heart of historical Stellenbosch is itself steeped in history. The original building, a small two-roomed cottage built in 1710, dates back to the beginnings of Stellenbosch when Governor van der Stel first explored the Eerste River Valley. By the 1960s this humble little cottage had been changed, modified and significantly rebuilt … the Eendracht Hotel & Apartments as it is now, was built and founded in 1996.
With 13 en-suite bedrooms, three recently refurbished self-catering apartments, an intimate conference/meeting facility -The Huddle Room (don’t you love the name?), Senobia’s inhouse breakfast and lunch restaurant, and more than 60 restaurants nearby, this destination really does have something for everyone.
