Guest Comments

Absolutely fabulous accommodation literally around the corner from the main drag in Franschhoek. Everything you need - off-street parking, pool, comfort, great breakfast and service. I might only ask for a room in the main house next time, as the rooms beside the house face on to a walkway that offers little privacy unless blinds/curtains remain drawn. I highly recommend this establishment.

We had a lovely two night stay. Ideal location for visiting the shops and restaurants. Jennie was extremely helpful, lovely breakfast and an ideal location where you can walk out at night to the main street. We would stay here again.
