Good location for Wine Tram and restaurants. Facilities are good for self catering and everything you needs for a few days stay. Room was a little tired and towels etc being updated would also make a difference. Lovely patio with table and chairs and there was a pool which had to be covered so we didn't use it.

I am glad that Sue and her partner enjoyed Sunny Lane. Our location is indeed perfect for walking into Franschhoek and seeing the sights. Thanks for the tip about the towels - these have already been replaced! Our pool is beautiful, but we are compelled by the municipality to cover our pools in order to prevent evaporation because of the...

Perfect base for day trips in the Cape Town/wine area. Good beds, quiet and safe. Very nice to have your own garden with swimming pool. Try this accommodation when you tired of hotels and want a more everyday living.

The location of the place is very practical as you have everything in walking distance. The room.was well equipped and comfortable. The host is not really helpful which was ok for us. Very good value for money.

We really enjoyed our stay.The reception was quick and friendly. The location is very central to all the wine farms. Everything was nice and clean, only the kitchenette area could do with some serious upgrading

I am glad that Madga enjoyed her stay and that she found that everything was nice and clean. Magda stayed in our budget studio, which has a small kitchenette (it has a hotplate, bar fridge and microwave and everything one needs for a cozy stay).

Sunny Lane was comfortable and the host very helpful and pleasant. If you need your own get away having been on the wine trail all day, this is just the place. Quiet, clean, basic furnishing but everything you need. Nice small garden and a pool which was kept clean despite the high winds and leaves. Patio seemed to take the...

I loved this place, very conveniently located and very comfortable. A wonderful hostess and friendly kittys made it a memorable stay. Underfloor heating made it really pleasant in the cooler evenings and there is a pool for those hot summer days. I would highly recommend it.
