From the moment we arrived we felt we where staying with family rather than at a guest house. We stayed 4 nights in the cottage, which was lovely, very large bedroom and equally large bathroom. We had breakfast in the morning overlooking the mountains, wonderful views. The breakfasts are great and Annette is a wonderful hostess. On 2 evenings they... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Gardenhouse for one night, and it was way to short. We should have stayed for at least 2 nights at this beautiful, countryish, romantic guesthouse. Annette (one of the owners) also recommended us to stay longer and she was right. The house has a lovely veranda where breakfast is served. First, you get... More

My husband and I began searching in January for accommodation in the Cape and upon reviewing guest houses in Franschhoek on Trip Advisor we came across the Garden House. Like many of the reviewers we were impressed by the many "excellent" ratings the Garden House had received but it was when I clicked on their website that I knew this... More

Friendly welcome. Immaculate room. Close to the main street but in a quiet residential area but close to restaurants. Would stay again like a shot. Also very reasonably priced in such an expensive place.

We stayed for two nights in the garden house based on trip advisor recommendations and it was fantastic. Annette and Barry are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything, stunning location and we were able to walk into town to restaurants as well. Breakfast can't be beaten the array of fresh fruit was amazing. You won't be disappointed if you... More

Dear Mum I bought a postcard to send from Franschhoek but lost it so I am resorting to e mail. Franschhoek is Gods country - stunning scenery, sensational eating and an abundance of wineries. We have been staying at The Garden House, a detached house in a quiet and sunny hillside location with a beautifully furnished and spacious bedroom, and... More

We had a very pleasant stay, and enjoyed the regular morning cycle trips with Barry. The perfect way to start a day! Fresh air, surrounded by breath taking scenery, a bit of a sweat and ready for all the wine-tasting!

After our last visit we said we would return and we were pleased we did. The experience of sitting on the verandah looking at stunning scenery with a G&T and being made to feel so welcome by Annette and Barry was one of the great memories of our holiday. The breakfast outdoors is a perfect way to start the day.... More

The breakfast spread was outstanding,.everything was so fresh and often home made. We had a real feast. Wonderful hospitality and a lovely peaceful atmosphere . Thank you so much , we... More

This was our second stay at the Garden House and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Annette and Barry are perfect hosts and made us feel welcome throughout our stay. Annette suggested restaurants and was able to book them for us at short notice. We stayed in the Cottage in the garden which was equipped with everything you... More
