Thank you so very much David and Jennifer for your wonderful hospitality. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Rooms were comfy and clean. Breakfast was the best we had in South Africa. We will definitely be returning next year. Thanks a million 😊😊😊😊

Wonderful cosy place in the heart of Franschoek. Rooms are wonderfully decorated and breakfast is fantastic (eating out on the veranda in the sun is fantastic). Town centre is a 2 minute walk away and staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

We booked the best suite in this guest house for a few days. Very luxurious! Our own lounge and huge bedroom and bathroom and our own balcony patio and jacuzzi A good breakfast too. Very romantic! Definitely the place for a trim antic break or...More

Really close to all restaurants, wine tram, etc. Nice place to stay with traditional architecture, lovely pool and courtyard area, good choice at breakfast, helpful staff with good advice regarding places to eat and local area.
