Guest Comments

A bit dusty in the rooms here and there, especially the textile headboard. It just made me sneeze, am probably rather sensitive to dust.
Nice quiet setting, well laid out.
The owners are very nice, excellent service and very helpful. Will go back when traveling to Franschhoek again.
