I found the guest house a little noisy but the location was great and the room cute. Mostly the willingness to please will make me go back. We forgot some belongings in our room but the hosts called us, posted the goods and went out of their way to ensure that we were happy... THANK YOU

Lovely venue with excellent breakfast. It was freezing when we were there, so it would have been nice if the dining room/ lounge was heated. Franschoek has good eateries and coming home to a cold place spoils it a bit

The day we went for a large breakfast it was the first day of opening for the Corner House Cafe in Harraby, Carlisle. The welcome was friendly, and as you would expect from a newly opened place it was clean and nicely set out. The breakfast could be bought in small or large size and the price of the large... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Corner House Guest House and were particularly happy that our dog could stay too. While in bed someone turned the bedroom door (from the library's side) – it must have been a lot guest! Other than that, all good, and a delicious breakfast in the morning.

Thank you for providing bed and lovely breakfast in Franschhoek.!Rooms may not be as superior as some of the other more pricey lodges but perfect for us.Suggest better bedding ie. down and feather duvets and heaters in rooms.

We were most impressed by our reception. Daniele offered us coffee as we walked in - earlier than expected!! She was a superb hostess - the best we have ever encountered!! The rooms are spacious but still cozy - home away from home. The absence of TV's did not bother us one bit! The persons who served us breakfast in... More

Arrived on a very wet miserable day after a long flight - but hosts had a very friendly welcome, fire lighting - lovely cosy feel to the property, good nights sleep and a great breakfast to start the day

We booked the lavender honeymoon suite; complete with fireplace right next to the bed and a Victorian-style tub. Two simple yet delightful luxuries perfect for a couple's night. The quick yet courteous greeting at check-in allowed us to settle in at our own pace and without any disturbances. The breakfast staff were friendly and always nearby to assist.

We've been a couple of times and it has always been a pleasure. There is a heater in the rooms to keep you warm. The main street is within walking distance, so you don't have to drive if you taste a little too much wine!

Clean, pleasant room, although a TV in the room would have been nice. Excellent breakfast. Well located - close to main shopping and restaurant area. Better suited to tourists or leisure travellers rather than business people as there is no early breakfast.
