We booked this the day before arrival . Not much else available. But we were very satisfied. Our room was large and the separate bathroom was also large with a tub , large shower and vanity area. Everything was clean and comfortable (though the bed a bit Firm) . The breakfasts were the usual English fare and well prepared. The... More

Danièle's (the owner's) generosity and commitment are just breathtaking! Although arriving quite late, she offered us a warm welcome with a glass of fresh white wine and interesting talk about her activities.

Bnb is a Good location to town, 5 min walk. Rooms are dated but clean. Wifi is slow and does not work in some rooms. Breakfast selection was average. Easy access in and out with a remote for security gate. Pool needed cleaning.

Stayed for 2 nights, breakfast was lovely as was the room (No 4). Handy location on the edge of town, 5 mins walk will get you to main street. Franschhoek is nice provincial town with loads to do and see.

Room six looked out to dustbins and a white wall. Receptionist owner Aragant stating "dustbins do not bite", breakfast poor. Initially booked for three nights but lest after one - it was worth loosing deposit. Good internet access allowing me to book another place.

We stayed there for just one night but it is the experience we made. After a warm welcome we never had a chance to meet the owner of that guesthouse, not even for paying. We were disappointed with the poor breakfast we got. The variety was very small, we had to ask for a jam or marmelade because the service... More

We only had a one night stay, but were made to feel very welcome. Beautiful room, lovely and clean, all you could want for breakfast and easy walk into town. Franschhoek itself was delightful, with lots of good restaurants.

A great location in central Franschhoek, The Corner House is beautifully kept and more than hospitable. There was an extra effort made to get me a delicious breakfast, despite wanting to sleep in, dankjewel! And we loved the doggies there to meet & greet. We would love to return and stay a little bit longer!

Pleasant establishment with adequate facilities. A little pricey considering the lack of air conditioning, but probably par for Fanchoek. Staff and cleanliness average. well positioned and within walking distance of all town attractions

We were allowed the use the kitchen to clean babies bottles and make use of plates and utensils. We were very appreciative of the help, since this was only bed/breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, a short walk to all amenities. I can highly recommend this B/B
