But I love this one. My girlfriend booked this for a recent trip and I was able to join her for the weekend. Usually I will always go for something private so guesthouses are not on my radar, and my girlfriend is a bit more friendly and enjoys meeting people and being part of a family. I come from a...

Michaella and her staff know how to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are decorated with a French touch, comfortable and clean. Breakfast on the balcony was excellent. On walking distance from the mainstreet with the major restaurants.

I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with the old owner and the new young owners. My first room was the more luxurious one which has an awesome bathroom. My 2nd room normal. Breakfast is extraordinary with attention to detail

My elderly mother and I needed some where close to Franschoek's main street, with a room on the ground floor. The Corner house was beautifully presented - tasteful and interesting decor, and a pretty garden. The breakfast was lovely (neither of us chose cooked breakfasts, and the alternative was very enticing.) The staff were helpful and welcoming without being intrusive....

Great location walking distance from main street. Rooms were comfortable. The double bed was two singles pushed together which is a hateful practice but seems to be the norm everywhere these days. Lovely hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfast.

This place is a real gem, the hostess is so welcoming and has presented the Corner House beautifully. It is very quaint with a beautiful garden. Our room was beautifully decorated with great facilities, wifi, tea and coffee and a lovely shower (no bath). Breakfast was a real delight - served in the front room (which again is stunning) and...

We enjoyed a top pleasant stay at this wonderful place. Michaela was just amazing and with great attention to all details: house decoration, room accommodation, and all possible traveler's needs. Super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding and one of our best ones after traveling 3 weeks in S.A ... Home made Musli, croissant, and Belgium waffle - heaven!

Already looking forward to staying here again: the level of personal attention and friendliness is outstanding, especially in this day & age of anonymity. I can highly recommended TCH for all other travellers!

“Annex yellow bedroom overlooking the front garden has the best views. Garden room is larger with bath and courtyard garden.”

“For overnighting, any of the more simple rooms are perfect. For a longer stay, the "deluxe" or honeymoon suite, at not many more RRR, is wonderful - you have your own fireplace for chilly nights and a huge bathroom with deep bath for a lovely long soak after you've been walking the streets of Franschhoek!”
