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.

We stayed here for just one night 30th December 2016. We had two rooms at the top of the stairs; myself and partner and my sister. Having left our booking till last minute, we had difficulty finding rooms in the places recommended by friends. However, we could not have been more delighted by this hotel.

We found ourselves without a room for the night as our guest house had only reserved one room for two couples. We ended up securing a cancellation at the Oliphant and moved there leaving our friends. At this point we were tired (& a bit "emotional".......) having spent the day on the Franschhoek wine tram. However both the welcome and...
