Friendly staff, comfortable beds, quiet, nicely equipped house. Maybe some gluten free bread for breakfast would be nice as well as an espresso machine. We will come back in the winter time. Thank you.

We had an excellent stay at Gooding's Grove. Despite arriving late after some complications on the road, the Gooding family was very kind an welcoming. The suite (not sure what they call the large room in the barn) was great, we really enjoyed our stay.

Arrived at the B&B and was very happy it was far from any road. It was quite and friendly. I cannot fault anything other than the WiFi in the room i stayed in was not that strong. Friendly open owners. Definitely stay there again

We recently stayed in the Villa at Gooding's Groves with 2 friends. We had a marvellous time. Malcolm and Salome were very welcoming and hospitable. The breakfast was superb, everything you could wish for and in the heart of the Franschoek wine lands - what's not to like? We hope to return very soon.

We received a warm welcome with a glass of wine and some olives from the farm. Malcolm and Salome are wonderful hosts indeed. Our accommodation was spacious and extremely comfortable.
