Property Facilities:
Stanford Functions The hotel has two unique function areas. A beautiful 40 seater dining room which flows onto a willow shaded courtyard overlooking the Kleinriver mountains. From the Queen Victoria Street entrance, there The Maison du Carnivore is open to the public on Saturday nights.

Area Information:
The unique little village of Stanford, settled beneath the moody slopes of the Klein River Mountains, lies just inland of False Bay, forming the tip of a triangle with the coastal towns of Hermanus and De Kelders. Peaceful and largely unaffected by change, Stanford is an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops, and the list of activities for a largely rural village exceeds one’s expectations.

Like many of the Overberg towns, Stanford originated as a farm, de Kleine Riviers Valey (the original spelling), and the tree-lined streets today, filled with historical buildings, are testimony to the largely English influence that makes Stanford the third most historically important village in the Western Cape. The heart of Stanford surrounding the market square - used as a venue for a monthly country market and annual boxing day cricket match - was proclaimed a South African Heritage area in 1995. The original farmhouse of De Kleine Riviers Valey, built in 1785, is one of the oldest houses still in existence in the Cape Overberg and the beautiful stone Church is thought to have been built in the 1700’s as well, although the records have unfortunately been lost.

Two of the ‘must do’s’, when in Stanford are the Birkenhead Brewery, a boutique brewery open for beer tasting and lunches, and the Stanford Walking Trail (wandelpad), which wends its way along the banks of the Klein River through the town and offers visitors some wonderful glimpses of the many birds in the area, including the endangered Blue Crane, South Africa's national bird.

Stanford now has a number of vineyards and more appear to be emerging every year and the local Klein River Cheese Farm offers some mouth watering options including a local Gruyere, one of the few made in South Africa.

The Salmonsdam Nature reserve is only 15 km away and offers 50km of hiking trails through some beautiful specimens of Cape fynbos.

De Kelders and Gansbaai are exciting destinations if you want to watch Southern Right whales and Great White sharks, and the Walker Bay Nature Reserve borders the Walker Bay Whale Sanctuary protected area offering a choice of superb land-based whale watching within natural fynbos of the area.

In Room Facilities:
Room 8 has a double bed with private bathroom (shower not bath). Room 6 has twin beds with private bathroom (shower not bath). Room 5 has a double bed with bathroom (bath not shower). The hotel suite 'Luca's Lodge' is not self-catering but has tea and coffee making facilities. The suite comprises of two bedrooms with a small foyer separating them leading to the bathroom. Bambi Cottage is a self-catering stand alone cottage with two bedrooms. Sixpence is a self-catering stand-alone cottage for two people sharing and a small well behaved pet.
