From the moment we arrived with a great friendly welcome there was no doubt that we were going to have a fantastic time and certainly all our expectations were exceeded. The room was really well designed and a very comfortable enormous bed. Breakfast choices were amazing and quality of a very high standard . Above all the friendly and helpfuly service from all the staff was just superb and we will be back in a heartbeat.

This is a perfect place to stay. Beautiful house with lovely rooms. Breakfast served beautifully by Dino and his team on the terrace overlooking the mountains.
The staff were so friendly and helpful.
It is only a 5 minute walk to the centre and we liked that as it was quiet place to stay.
The pool is pretty too.

We stayed at room #4 for 2 nights and LOVED it. We have a beautiful veranda and the room was so welcoming that we almost didn't want to leave it! Dino and the rest of the staff were extremely kind and helpful. I also ordered a massage from the spa that was exquisite. I wish we will be back!

Absolutely perfect experience. This charming guesthouse is immaculate. The view from the pool area is the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is so peaceful, but still easy to walk into town in 10 minutes. Bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and comfy.
The staff are lovely, the breakfast and the view on the breakfast terrace was incredible. 100/10.

Enjoyed our stay here. The hotel very central, convenient parking area and comfortable rooms with air con. Daily bottle of water and fruit in the room a nice touch. Breakfast staff friendly and the breakfast tasty! It was a check in online arrangement and no reception / welcome desk- so a slightly impersonal experience. But overall a good stay on a really pretty estate with fantastic views.

Is it save to walk at night to Franschhoek town centre?
Answer from BasilCary
Franschhoek, South Africa9 contributions
Yes, absolutely safe, Guests park their car in our Car Park & while staying with us walk into the Village etc., which is only 600 meters to the centre of Franschhoek... Car is only required if one needs to visit outer Wineries etc., Our Country House/Wine Farm is well lit up at night Hope that answers your query Basil
