Stellenbosch Accommodation

Where should I book accommodation? 

The African Doctoral Academy's Doctoral Schools are held in and around the RW Wilcocks building at Stellenbosch University. The University is located in the centre of the historic town of Stellenbosch (map) and is within walking distance of a number of hotels and guest houses.

Please note: Not all of the below places of accommodation are situated within walking distance of Stellenbosch University. Please consider travel arrangements when making your booking. While Stellenbosch has some Uber cars, taxis are not in steady supply. Remember, for those of you arriving at Cape Town International or the Bus station, we're offering a complimentary shuttle service, courtesy of the ADA. 

Can anyone help me find a room?
