My husband & I planned a romantic 1 night stay (without our son) on the last night of our vacation at Centre-Ville. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the hostess who showed us to our room & ensured that we were comfortable. Before going out to dinner we headed to the cozy lounge area and enjoyed some sherry.

Elsa and Jakob welcomed us to their 'home' during a frosty weather. A glass or two of cherry ...and the weather felt less cold. Cozy feel -like home- with great bathtub and home made breakfast (home made marmalades too) next to the fireplace. Try to get the sensational room (!!)

We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely be back. Warm hosts, Elsa and Jaco made us feel right at home. We recommend the "Splendour" room as the views are amazing from the deck! Perfectly located right in the heart of town. Rooms were impeccable. Very romantic setting for those weekend getaways with that someone special.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Centre-Ville. Note only is the Guest House centrally located and within easy walking distance to everything in Franschhoek but the service is amazing. When our wine tour guide "forgot" to pick us up they managed to find another one at the last minute for that same day - and the one they found was...

Centre-Ville is in a great location in Franschhoek - literally a stone's throw away from the main road and easy to walk to good restaurants and shops nearby. The hosts made the stay very pleasant, and were very helpful with tips on which sights to see, driving routes, restaurants and wine farms. The breakfast each morning was always good, with...

Some years ago I wrote a very positive review of this Guest House. We have been back several times with family members and friends from South Africa and overseas and we have had only excellent experiences. This is a very well run guest house and the owners cannot do enough for you. It is in the best possible position in...

We spent 2 nights in this delightful B&B and have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. The rooms were comfortable and immaculate, the location is very close to the town centre (but still quiet) and the hosts were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They made dinner reservations for us, did laundry and were also very happy to just sit on...

From the minute we arrived at this amazing guest house we were made to feel "at home". We arrived early so our rooms were not ready, but that was no problem to Elsa and Jaco, they took care of our massive trailer and luggage. We had guests with us from Scotland. We rushed off to the Wine Tram, which was...

Good location in the city center. We liked the "Abundant" Room on 1st floor, but it can get a little noisy at times. Nice breakfast. Some attention to details. Nice hosts. Free Wifi. Be there before 1pm and catch the wine tram only 5 minutes down the main street. Nothing fantastic, but we enjoyed staying here for 1 night and...
