Great place. Nice, welcoming staff. Solid breakfast. Easy walk from Franschhoek. Definitely eat at the Tasting Room while you are there, get a reservation in advance. Affordable and safe. Close wine tasting.

We had a very good stay for a couple of nights. A very quite and safe place, close to the city center. Danielle takes care of her guests ! She welcomed us very nicely with a glass of wine and ensured that all our needs were taken care of. Very enjoyable stay.

Cozy little guest house in quiet street of Franschhoek. Danielle, the landlady was kind enough to let my friends (who were not guests) lounge with me around the pool (and even lent them towels) until we needed to go to our evening engagement. The atmosphere was relaxed and the bed was very comfortable.

Corner House really does feel like a home away from home. The owner Dick was welcoming and so helpful. The staff were amazing and the breakfast was delicious. Really close to town centre. Fab weekend!

Very accommodating and clean guesthouse with a lovely breakfast. It's simple and has all that you need, besides a tv in your room. It is super central, the Main Street in franschhoek is 1 minute away by foot. The owner Daniele, is just wonderful.

Pleasant and completely acceptable, but not exceptional. Good size room looking out over attractive gardens. Short walk to main street and restaurants. From our perspective, the most notable aspect here was the sheets, bedspread and blankets on the bed. Most African B&Bs seem to have duvets which are too hot if you use them in the summer, but you are... More

We stayed 3 nights at The Corner House from 28 January at the start of our month's holiday. We were pleased to find there was a secure car park for our hire car, and were greeted with a cheerful welcome. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is individually cooked and very tasty. Surroundings are homely with a friendly atmosphere,... More
