Unfortunately the most disappointing stay we had in South Africa during our 4 weeks trip. We can't say what was the worst: 1. bugs in rooms (I am aware that this is a rural area but the amount of bugs is just not acceptable), one night we were sitting in the common room and there were bugs falling from the...

We stayed over in the Elizabeth suite. We enjoyed every moment from the friendly reception to the owl on the roof. Breakfast was such a treat served with a smile. We will be back if coming this way again, one to remember!

Upon arrival in the afternoon the reception was closed (locked). Had to call a number on the locked door for assistance. What a welcome! Warm water tap in the basin was not working. Had to use hot water from the kettle to fill the basin. Do not be sieved by photos. It can be misleading. The correct deposit I paid... More

Our reception is open until 6pm every day and I had 2 staff on duty on the 3rd until 5.30 and 6pm respectively. It is possible that the front door was closed, as they do this for security when they go out to the laundry or when checking in guests. The Elizabeth Suite is situated upstairs and on the side...

We have booked the whole venue for our wedding guests to stay and all of them have nothing but praise for Basse-Provence. The rooms are large and luxurious, with huge bathrooms. The staff was extremely helpful and catered to all our guests need, even the unexpected. The scenery is incredible and the venue is very quiet, with a cosy atmosphere... More

We recently stayed at Basse Provence with some friends. We got a really nice room overlooking the swimming pool, the room was an upstairs unit and from the outset looked to be an excellent place to stay. But looks as they say, can be deceiving. All the doors in the room are really low, even the door to the on... More

We appreciate you taking the time to post your comments on Trip advisor. We are sad to hear that our Elizabeth Suite was not to your liking. Some of the endearing characteristics of Cape Dutch buildings over 200 years old are their lower than normal doors and yellowwood ceiling beams. While these architectural features add to the character of the... More

A short one night visit to Franschhoek, but an excellent choice to rest our heads! Our room 'Gideon' was very comfortable with a lovely en-suite. Breakfast was first class and all the staff were charming. After leaving we tasted wines at Rickety Bridge - and bought! Stunning scenery all around!

We had the featured room with its mosquito net which brought back memories of fighting my way out of bed to go for a pee! Lovely spot just outside the village surrounded by vines. Pool a small one for cooling down rather than swimming. A pity the do not give samplings of their wines in the rooms!

Many thanks for reviewing us on Tripadvisor. We always value comments from our guests. We may not have “tastings” of our wines in the room but do, however, offer a bottle of one of our reds and one of our white wines, as part of the mini bar, in each room. We hope to welcome you back one day. Regards... More

This B&B is about 2km out of town and a little away from Franschhoek’s restaurants and shops. Nevertheless, staff was always very helpful and offered to organize rides to wineries or restaurants in town so that we could enjoy a glass or two without caring about driving. The B&B is located in two old French-style houses with thatched roofs which... More

We stayed at Basse Provence during December 2013. It's a beautiful old farmhouse, with a traditional thatched roof, close to (but not within easy walking distance of) Franschhoek and its famous restaurants. Excellent views from the property, welcoming and friendly staff, good breakfast. Our room (room 2) was very attractive and well appointed - it had air conditioning, a mini-bar... More

Stayed in the Elizabeth suite - lovely room and surrounding property. Breakfast was fantastic and the views of the surrounding area was excellent. Also very lovely staff and conveniently close to the main city area. This is the perfect kind of accommodation as most people spend the entire day exploring the Francschoek wine region and this is the perfect place... More
