We stayed with friends for 3 nights to celebrate a special birthday. The boutique hotel is in a great location, just off the main street, so everywhere is within walking distance. Our room was large and luxurious with an enormous bathroom. All the staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you, especially the manager Conrad. We enjoyed complimentary...

Nice stay in occasion of our honeymoon, kind staff. The decoration of the hotel is very cute and the lounge area very relaxing and comfortable, enjoying good South African wine. The hotel is situated very close to most of Franschhoek restaurants that can be reached walking. A driver service is available for any winery visit in the amazing winelands!

We stayed at The Last Word, during our long trip to South Africa, we were welcomed by Conrad the manager who was very hospitable and pleasant. We paid a lot of money to stay in a pool suite room which was lovely, with beautiful fittings, however we could not use our private pool as the smell and flies from the...
