The beauty of Franschhoek was complemented perfectly by the accommodations at La Fontaine Guest House. Apparently they will be renovating and adding rooms this year, but the experience is top notch now, and at a great value. Location is excellent with a variety of good restaurants and shopping within close walking distance, as well as the Wine Tram. Christopher, the manager, is professional, responsive and pleasantly helpful--he provided me with an electrical outlet adapter for my American electronics as I had left mine at the last guest house (I inadvertently neglected to return it however--sorry Christopher!). The grounds and pool are nice, and the rooms are clean, comfortable and with refreshing attention to comfort. Laundry service was affordable and same day. The free continental breakfast is above average, and the made-to-order omelet was very good. I can't say enough positive things about my experience at La Fontaine; the best place I stayed on my first visit to South Africa, and you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: I extended my stay so experienced 2 rooms-both were good

We stayed just 1 night in La Fontaine, but it served perfectly our needs. We wanted to walk around the town to sit in cafes and restaurants - thanks to the La Fontain's location in the town's centre we did not loose any time for driving - we had easy access to all places we wanted to see. Guest house is stylish, provides enough space, nice garden with swimming pool and good breakfast.

I liked the atmosphere at La Fontaine - friendly and relaxed. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast good. With a very central location, yet in a calm side street La Fontain has a superb location and could well become my

We spent a couple of nights here in March. We were in the lemon room which was really lovely and spacious, opening onto the swimming pool.

Breakfast was nice, and the pool area very nice.

The guest house is excellently located in a quiet but central spot, and it's safe to walk back at night after dinner out.

La Fontaine was extremely well-located just a block from the main street. The house has lots of charm. We were in rooms in an adjoining house--using the several old-fashioned keys to enter at night was a bit tricky, but ultimately no problem. The bed was comfortable and water pressure in the shower was good. The breakfast in the garden was lovely. La Fontaine was well-priced compared to other local venues we looked at, and represented good value. We'd recommend it.
