My wife and I travelled out to Franschhoek for a couple of days during a trip to Cape Town. We booked online on the day and given how reasonable the price was, we were blown away by the quality of the room and feel of the place. Charles welcomed us to Garden Room 2, and Sharon couldn't do enough to... More

Stayed here over night before a wedding. Was a great place to say. Owner very friendly and helpful! The rooms were perfect size, and neat and clean. Breakfast was good too. I would definitely stay there again and the price was great too. Within walking distance of the main road and restaurants in Franschoek.

What a beautiful well appointed guest house in the heart of Franschoek. Walk to restaurants and tourist spots. Rooms are well decorated and bathrooms stunning. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the town. Breakfast was an absolute delight with fresh well presented food.

Stopped in Franshoek for a late lunch and decided to stay the night. Without any reservations the coach house was very accommodating and took our reservation on late notice. They even welcomed us with a glass of red. Well looked after, nice rooms and friendly efficient service. Can recommend this place for a good night stay.

We stayed 2 nights in June (cold & rainy) and Sharon ensured we walked into lovely warm bedrooms: Garden Room 1 (Sharon arranged twin beds in this room for Grandfather & Grandson) and Garden Room 2 (Queen for my husband & myself). Each of these have a lovely little private patio with table and chairs looking onto the garden. Although... More

Best location in Franschhoek--walking distance to all in-town restaurants. Sharon and Charlie are great and gracious hosts and we bonded with them immediately, despite showing up without any reservations. Their recommendations for restaurants and things to do were 'spot on'. The room was quiet,large and nicely furnished with a very comfortable king sized bed. It had its own patio seating... More

The location of this guesthouse is great. Just off the main street, at the monument end of town. A short walk to everything you need. The owners Sharon and Charles are very friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A great base to visit the vineyards. We had a couple of small niggles...They... More

After much research on accommodation in Franschhoek, we chose The Coach House. What a delightful, small guest house. We booked directly and selected a garden room with a king size bed and wonderful linens. The room is comfortable, not cramped, and contains two comfy chairs and a table plus dressing table and armoire with a flat screen above. Everything is... More

We so look forward to our stay at The Coach House at the end of our 6 week tour of South Africa each year. It is one of the best guest houses we stay in on our trip. Sharon and Charlie are so welcoming and nothing is too much for them to make our stay a wonderful one. Their guest... More
