An absolute gem of a place, stunning views of the mountains, very serene and quiet being surrounded by olive trees on the farm. The breakfast was delicious and the beds are very comfortable and big, rooms are spotless and clean. I would go back any day. Also only a 5 minute drive outside Franschoek and taxi services were available so...

Susan and her team are excellent hosts. Always helpful and eager to make you feel at home. We stayed at Gooding's the second time now and we will come back for sure. The location is a great spot for exploring the wonderful Franschhoek valley, the Wine Estates, Golf Courses and excellent restaurants nearby. Michaela & Juergen

The farm is located in the middle of Olive trees and has nice views. IT is a little bit far located from Franschhoek centre. But we definitively recommend this farm to future guest. Very nice breakfast. Guests can make splendid walks.

This was our third visit to Goodings and we were not disappointed. We were greeted like old friends and nothing was too much trouble. The ladies in the kitchen were very polite and we certainly look forward to coming again.

This was our second visit to Gooding's and once again it lived up to expectations. Susan and her husband are very welcoming and helpful and the rooms with their stunning views made the experience extra special! The breakfast every morning was awesome and the snack platter that they leave out for guests in the main dining room area was delightful....

Our expectations was exceeded in every instance. The personnel were extremely helpful, though unobtrusive in the everyday tasks and housekeeping. I can highly recommend Gooding's Groves for any traveller, whether business or pleasure.

The views were glorious. The rooms are lovely and the bed was luxurious. The staff is so pleasant and you will want to purchase a jar of olive chutney from the guest house. We meant to stay for one night but we wanted to stay longer.
