Stunning setting for this beautiful boutique hotel with echoes of a colonial era. Great staff who paid attention to detail and always seemed to have a smile on their faces. Excellent cooked-to-order breakfasts as well.

Great location and the upgrade was a bonus. On oasis of tranquility with very friendly staff - breakfasts were fun,but limited choice What luck to coincide with the Saturday market - such fun and meeting people.

Recently my wife and I stayed at this guesthouse which is conveniently situated in a pleasant residential area close to the main street of the village. We found the staff friendly and our room was pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was perfectly satisfactory. This guesthouse was full of character with a lovely garden and is, in our view, reasonably priced.

A wonderful peaceful haven in a beautiful town. It has a very special and unique atmosphere. The staff are gracious and hospitable. Our room was large and very comfortable and its own private patio and pool. Taxi service to great local restaurants, although many are within walking distance. We would love to have stayed longer.

Perfect for relaxing and visiting the Winelands. Beautiful location and charming hotel with all the creature comforts you could hope for. Staff attentive and helpful. Quiet but close to the village with its pretty buildings, shops, restaurants and interesting Saturday market.

We had a recommendation to visit Franschhoek and to stay at the hotel. We were not disappointed, room was great, lovely breakfast and view and the location for the centre of town and the Wine Tram tour could not be bettered.

The hotel is very quaint and authentic. The breakfast is poor but the accommodation is lovely and the atmosphere and staff are warm and friendly. Some water in the room wouldn't go amiss but that's only a small thing. The location is superb.

There was no top sheet on the bed and we had to request it. The internet didn't work most of the time and there was not enough WiFi Access Points setup for a decent signal in most areas of the building, particular in the breakfast areas.
