Twice Cen­tral Guest­house


Getaway (South Africa) - - The Final Cut Stellenbosch -

When Harold and Ané Spies opened a two-room guest house called Twice in their fam­ily home in Stellenbosch in 2014, they re­ceived such rave re­views that they de­cided to ex­pand. Join­ing forces with long-stand­ing friends Liesl Swart and Mandi Smit, they pur­chased a prop­erty in Ham­man Street, a quiet res­i­den­tial lane off Dorp Street and, af­ter ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tions, opened Twice Cen­tral in Novem­ber 2016. As is ev­i­dent from TripAd­vi­sor rat­ings, it’s been a run­away suc­cess, and wan­der­ing from room to room I could see why. The decor is out­stand­ing and a spirit of lux­ury and gen­eros­ity per­me­ates – from the Afri­col­ogy toi­letries and 400-thread Egyp­tian-cot­ton linen to fresh flowers and com­pli­men­tary Ne­spresso cof­fee pods. All seven rooms of­fer great value for money. There is a new plunge pool, and bikes for guests to use. ROOM TIP Room 6 costs a bit more but is so worth it. It’s up­stairs, ac­cessed via its own pri­vate ex­ter­nal stair­case, and has a bal­cony with a great view. COST From R805 pp shar­ing B&B. Special for Get­away read­ers: R1 300 for two, plus a Lanz­erac wine-tast­ing voucher and bot­tle of wine (valid July to Oc­to­ber). Quote ‘Get­away Twice’ when book­ing.
