The host Michaela was wonderful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious, eggs to your preference, cheeses, fruit salad, yogurt, museli, many jams and homemade breads. The room was...

We stayed for one night whilst exploring the wineries in and around Franschhoek. Our room was perfect for our needs and had all the amenities we required. There was a nice communal room that we could have used although we didn't have any time to spend there. Breakfast was fantastic and the hostess was lovely. We will be back again...

We had a very short stay at The Corner House, which was very affordable given the time of year. The hosts were very accommodating. Location was ideal as it has easy access to the wine farm routes, and a short walk to the main road. Breakfast was also great and good value for money!

A warm welcome by the owner Michaela that helped us a lot to make the best of our stay. The guesthouse is is nicely located in the beautiful village of Franschhoek. The whole guesthouse is decorated with a lot of taste. Familiar atmosphere meets professional service. You feel even better than at home.

Very warm welcome with a gin & tonic by the pool and fabulous freshly cooked breakfast everyday - the perfect start to our holiday in South Africa. Just a few minutes walk from the main street - a great location

Nice rooms with decent but small bathroom. The staff is great and the swimming pool is clean and sufficient, although you most likely won't use it that often with the great kind of wineries and restaurants nearby. Definitely a good place to stay

We stayed in a number of these kind of places in SA, and this one was definitely the best. Yes, it's centrally located, the breakfast is very good, the rooms have everything you need without being pretentious... but most of all it has the best VIBE. There's a warmth and a personal element to it. The owner has excellent taste....

We stayed over with a group of girl friends and simply had the best possible time. Initially we chose this place due to its central location in walking distance to Franschhoek's 'hub'. The attention to detail in everything, makes the Corner house so special. My personal favourite was the crystal & refreshing little swimming pool, so inviting in the December...

“For overnighting, any of the more simple rooms are perfect. For a longer stay, the "deluxe" or honeymoon suite, at not many more RRR, is wonderful - you have your own fireplace for chilly nights and a huge bathroom with deep bath for a lovely long soak after you've been walking the streets of Franschhoek!”
