Erica Guesthouse was a great stop off for my night in Franschhoek. The staff were very accomodating when I changed my booking details and the apartments were neat and clean. The pool area is lovely. The rooms are comfortable. And it was useful having access from your bedroom to the outside of the building when coming in late at night

We stayed at Erica's for two nights following the recommendation of friends and were very pleased. The Guesthouse is well located in Franschhoek in a nice and tranquil area of town. The room was simple but spacious and very clean. The breakfast was lovely, served by the pool. Charming service!

Charming service and perfect breakfast at the pool! It almost feels like staying at a friend's home. "Downtown" is in convenient walking distance while the guesthouse is in a very quiet residential area! Best fruit salad in the Western Cape!

A place can be simple. But staying in the dirt of the previous guest - no go. To find in a bathroom hair and mud of previous guest and a dirty toilet - sorry - dear owners - have a better look about what your staff is NOT doing. Unfortunately we arrived without a booking to Franschhoek and most of...

We found this Guesthouse by chance on the internet and were delighted with our choice. All our three bedrooms were spotlessly clean, each decorated slightly differently. The staff were brilliant. They answered all our questions. They even let me borrow a sun hat for the day! Breakfast was a real treat. Cereal,fresh fruit salad, watermelon, eggs, bacon tomato, cold meats,...

We received a lovely welcome and were presented with a most welcome glass of cold white wine. The room was spotless, if a tad outdated, and although we entered through the main house, it did have a private, secure entrance. Plenty of parking is available under large shady trees. There is a fridge for communal use which we found to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Erica and especially the breakfast by the pool. The location is good and only a short walk to the center of the village. The staff .was most friendly and accommodating.

We had a really nice and friendly welcome here from Paul. After a nice glass of wine and some amazing stories, Paul drove us to a great restaurant in town (he went twice because there were six of us). He even offered to pick us up after dinner but we decided to walk as it is only about 10 minutes...
