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

Had an "apartment" in the garden. Very comfortable and in an excellent position for central Franschhoek. We were made to feel very welcome and wished we could have stayed longer. Sharon was very helpful recommending where to eat etc.

This was the last night of our 2 week stay in South Africa before flying back to the UK from Cape Town. It is situated in a quiet road that is parallel to the main road, which has many shops & restaurants. It is only about a 3 min. walk to the main street. The host is very welcoming &... More
