The guesthouse is truely lying in the cetre of town. The hosts provide a very personal atmosphere. We had the honeymoon suite which was awesome with a spa-bath and an own door leading directly to the balcony with a 270°view on the surrounding mountains. But all the rooms are actually beautiful. Else, the host, has made all the intereur by... More

Can't add much more to what's already been said. We stayed 3 nights and were given a very warm welcome. Breakfast was fine and the room was good. We stayed in Splendour which has a deck outside so if you pay the extra you get a very nice amenity. The place is very fully decorated and you can spend interesting... More

We absolutely lucked out in find the Centre-Ville Guest House on our recent trip. We didn't know where to stay while in Franschhoek and took the recommendation of a travel book that we had with us to look at another guest house. Well, they were closed and Centre-Ville was just across the street. Elsa answered the door, showed us the... More

Attention to detail. Warm welcome. Home away from home!!!! We stayed for one night wish it was longer. Breakfast was great. The owners made us feel like family but not intrusive. Close to most amenities in town. Very affordable compared to other options in town. We will be back!

The guest house is located in a great location for wandering around Franschhoek on foot. The rooms are lovely, and the staff are very helpful. We very much enjoyed the wonderful breakfast prepared each morning as well as the small touches which make the stay enjoyable, such as wine glasses in your room for that bottle of wine you bought...

My husband & I planned a romantic 1 night stay (without our son) on the last night of our vacation at Centre-Ville. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the hostess who showed us to our room & ensured that we were comfortable. Before going out to dinner we headed to the cozy lounge area and enjoyed some sherry. The... More

Elsa and Jakob welcomed us to their 'home' during a frosty weather. A glass or two of cherry ...and the weather felt less cold. Cozy feel -like home- with great bathtub and home made breakfast (home made marmalades too) next to the fireplace. Try to get the sensational room (!!)

We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely be back. Warm hosts, Elsa and Jaco made us feel right at home. We recommend the "Splendour" room as the views are amazing from the deck! Perfectly located right in the heart of town. Rooms were impeccable. Very romantic setting for those weekend getaways with that someone special.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Centre-Ville. Note only is the Guest House centrally located and within easy walking distance to everything in Franschhoek but the service is amazing. When our wine tour guide "forgot" to pick us up they managed to find another one at the last minute for that same day - and the one they found was... More
