We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was beautifully furnished, staff were helpful and welcoming and the breakfast was great. The staff also made an effort to ensure we enjoyed our time in the area, taking time to recommend activities that they thought we would like.

Enjoyed another stay at Klein Oliphants Hoek. We booked late and had rooms 1and 2. Roomy and big bathrooms. Great breakfast. Only downside was our rooms were off the lounge room and we could hear staff talking while we were resting in the afternoon. Otherwise great.

We came back again, this time with our retired parents. Lovely place, cute rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast and good location in Franschhoek. They also liked it a lot. They will, as well as us, recommend it to their friends.

Really friendly place in a fabulous location (so close to so many amazing restaurants). Owner gave some good tips on which vineyards were worth visiting. Room was large and bathroom great, with a nice courtyard. Good selection of drinks available in the 'bar' and the port in the room is a nice touch. My only things was there was no... More

We highly recommend staying at Residence Klein Oliphants Hoek. It is a beautiful old house which has been renovated and decorated with lots of love and taste. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good. Also, what a lovely idea to put fresh lavender out of their own garden on the pillows when guests arrive!

Klein Oliphants was a great experience. One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been. Very friendly service, very nice breakfast. We stayed for one night with our two 16 and 18 year old children. We had the two rooms on the gallery. When we came home at night, the fire was lit in the big fireplace. It was... More

We had problems with hot water, the staff orgeniced everything but a day later we still had a cold shower. The beds in Klein Oliphants Hoek are very old, I had back problems when I left. The location of the guesthouse is fantastic in the middle of centre, but they need to do some renovations everything needs to be painted... More

It is most regrettable you had back problems, this is the first time we have had a complaint about the beds here. We doiwish you well in this regard. There was an unfortunate burnt out geyser which caused the hot water problem, this was most inconvenient and we do apologise for this. The geyser was immediately replaced the same day,... More

We stayed three nights here and loved it. Nicely positioned back from the main road yet still close to the centre. It's maybe a bit old- you might hear the neighbour's shower, but that gives it this lovely old-style, charming feeling to it. Don't expect too much technology. The stoop at the back looking over the beautiful garden is perfect... More
