  • Description
  • Facilities
Post House B&B is situated in the winelands between the historic town of Stellenbosch and Somerset West. We offer two double rooms, both en-suite, a sitting room with TV, and a verandah with mountain views. There is also a big farm dam stocked with trout. Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting of Post House wines conducted by the winemaker Nick Gebers, who together with his wife Tracy and their children, will give you a warm and friendly welcome.

Enjoy walking through vineyards or hiking in the surrounding beautiful mountains, a round of golf at nearby courses, swimming or surfing at the stunning Strand beach, or the quaint fishing and sailing port of Gordon's Bay just 25 minutes away. We are located in the heart of the winelands, thus making Post House the ideal base from which to explore famous wine estates and farms, and discover wonderful restaurants such as 96 Winery Road and La Auberge.

We offer bed and breakfast accommodation in a cottage surrounded by vineyards and gardens. The Rose Room features a double bed, en-suite bathroom with shower and bath, and small kitchenette. The Lavender Room comprises two single beds, an en-suite bathroom with shower and bath, and small kitchenette. All rooms boast Oregon wood floors, all linen is provided, and kitchenettes are equipped with a fridge, kettle, toaster, and cutlery and crockery.

Breakfast can be enjoyed either in the private gardens, on the verandah, or in the cosy lounge in winter. In winter, enjoy the warmth of the fire, underfloor heating and heated towel rail in the bathrooms, and heated wall panels in all the rooms. A laundry service is also available on request.

Although the cellar only produces a small quantity of wine, the hands-on and conscientious approach at each step, from the growing and harvesting of the grapes through to unification, bottling, and packaging makes the wines unique. With the ability to be creative the whole wine package is fine-tuned. The objective is to interfere as little as possible in the creation of the wine making process. This means that the grapes are handled as gently as possible. We offer guests complimentary wine tasting of Post House wines from grapes grown on our farm.

Perhaps we were just unfortunate but we did not enjoy our stay. Signposts were not clearly visible. The gravel road to the homestead were badly maintained with rather deep furrows and some potholes.

The cottage lends itself to be a charming destination but is sadly not well cared for and is rather rundown in appearance with paintwork that needs cleaning at the least or repainted for best results.

The crockery and cutlery were not clean and we had to rewash it before we could use it. Electric blanket (one half) on the double bed did not work though the bedding and mattress were clean and comfortable.

It was a cold night and we decided to light a fire in the fireplace seeing that there was no heater in the lounge, not knowing that the chimney did not work with the result that we were totally smoked out by smoke coming down through the ceiling. By half past seven we were in our bed as it was the only warm spot.

A pity as the place could offer so much to the weary traveller. P.S. The wine tasting was not offered as proclaimed on the website.

The stay was great

We stayed overnight for a wedding at Webersburg, but would have liked to stay another night. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and well appointed. Tracy and Nick were great hosts and the setting is really beautiful. Ideal for families, or couples visiting the wine lands. We didn't do a wine tasting, but had a bottle of Post House Merlot at La Colombe subsequent to our stay, and can highly recommend it. The Post House was perfect for our stay.
