We had a pleasant stay at the Corner House, Franschhoek, when we spent a weekend recently. Clean and spacious room, with all we needed. Within walking distance to the main street.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were the best. No TV in the rooms.

We got to our room, the duvet was not big enough for the bed, it was threadbare and there were stains on the furniture. We also had a large spider visiting us which we had to trap. The staff were very nice however and the bathrooms are clean. The breakfast the next day was satisfactory.

We had a wonderful stay in the corner house. Good tips and nice conversations with the hosts about restaurants, the culture and South Africa. The room has all the basics you need, is clean and has good wifi. You can park your car inside the gate and just enjoy Franschhoek.

The Guest house is really lovely, staff were friendly and even though it was in July and Franchoek was freezing we had the warmest coziest nights sleep. Ideal for Bastille as we walked everywhere. A tv is the room would have made it perfect.

We recently stayed at The Corner House in Franschhoek. Lovely room with fireplace and a huge bathroom. Our hosts were extremely helpful in advising us on restaurants worth visiting and attractions worth seeing. Thank you Danielle and Dick, you were awesome.

I'm really impressed over this amazing place! I slept there two nights, but I wish I could be there longer. The place was just like you see it in the pictures, and the staff are so nice to you. They made us the best breakfast I've ever tasted! The rooms are quiet, clean and big, with good beds. The guest... More
