Background of The Wild Mushroom Boutique Hotel Luxury Stellenbosch Accommodation

Our location in Stellenbosch is ideal for an authentic experience of the Cape winelands, but it is also situated only a few kilometres from Cape Town Film Studios, South Africa’s own upcoming Hollywood – providing a totally different focus than any other South African Hotel.


Here at Digteby Estate in Vlottenburg, a residential area in Stellenbosch, a passion for classic luxury with a contemporary flavour is fused with a unique winelands location.

The prizewinning architect Hein Visser restored the old manor house brilliantly. The initial design and dimensions of the building were retained and the original walls, roof beams, doorframes, sash windows and solid kiaat doors revive a bygone era. In addition, the spacious farm house with its typical elements from the late Herbert Baker era gained a few magnificent rooms in the large roof area.

There are seven en suite bedrooms in this double-storey boutique hotel style country house. Each window offers an unobstructed view of the blue Boland Mountains. A stay in the Wild Mushroom, a uniquely South African guest house, is a visual delight and sensory experience in an exclusive, private environment.

Addditionally the poolside building, originally constructed as a high-tech mushroom growing facility, has been converted into the most luxurious suite you will have experienced.
