We were a very short drive from several superb restaurants as well as the wine tour. Our rooms were comfortable even if we had one very cold night when the power in the whole town shut down for two hours in the middle of the evening. Breakfast is included in the price of the room even if it is not... More

We had two rooms on the upper floor of the main building. Our room was wonderful in all regards, other than the only shower facility was part of a claw foot tub that included a hand held shower head - no separate shower. We opted for using the wonderful bath/shower in the separate but private bathroom down the hall, included... More

Wonderful time spent at Basse Provence , five star treatment , beautiful rooms and the most excellent breakfast looking out at the mountains . Where else can you swim watching Ostriches ? The perfect place from which to explore Franschhoek 's wines and restaurants .

Given what was designated as the honeymoon suite. The bed was separated into twin beds for us. The room was upstairs directly under the thatch roof. As it is an old building there were extra supporting struts. The only way that I could get in out of my bed was via the end of the bed. This would have held... More

Amazing views surround the property and they have a great wee swimming pool. Breakfast was great, continental and cooked breakfast available. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Would... More

This is a fantastic B&B. The employees and manager were very pleasant and helpful, the setting stunning and the breakfasts were superb (especially the continental). As we were travelling with another couple, we stayed in the cottage, which was perfect. Although slightly outside town, it's a nice 30 min walk into town during the day, and a short taxi ride...

An old Dutch colonial type building with separate cottages dotted round. We stayed in the main building, upstairs. I've never seen anything quite like it before. We were in the thatched roof area. It had recently been re thatched, if that is the correct term. There were loft beams around adding to the ambience. My husband is 6 feet tall... More
