Welcome to the official Stanford Hotel website.

The Stanford Hotel offers a variety of accommodation.

Hotel Rooms are all en-suite and each has its own exterior entrance. There are double rooms and family suites which can extend to 11 people if necessary. On the hotel grounds there is also self catering accommodation for either two or three people sharing. The only TV currently available during COVID is in Bambi Cottage. There is private and secure off street parking available free of charge. The privacy and security of our guests is of paramount importance to us. We are therefore not open to the public at all, apart from the steakhouse, Maison du Carnivore on the last Saturday of every month, and Oom Steyn’s Pub every Friday from 15.00 to 20.00, both of which are situated off the main road in Queen Victoria Street.

Why everyone falls in love with Stanford...

With the advantage of being a magical 1.5 hours from Cape Town, Stanford's popularity has grown enormously over the years. Leave Cape Town from work/school on Friday - leave Stanford for work/school on Monday morning at 05.15. Four nights in the city and three nights in the country. A perfect balance. Stanford is beautiful. Its preserved Victorian cottages, dirt roads, mountains and river make it one of the most popular villages in the country. It is also one of the most pet friendly villages and has a beautifully maintained “wandelpad” which meanders around the village alongside the Kleinriver. A fabulous 4Km route to exercise and socialise your dog. The Stanford Hotel even has one pet-friendly cottage available (Sixpence Cottage) subject to prior approval.
