Good location in the city center. We liked the "Abundant" Room on 1st floor, but it can get a little noisy at times. Nice breakfast. Some attention to details. Nice hosts. Free Wifi. Be there before 1pm and catch the wine tram only 5 minutes down the main street. Nothing fantastic, but we enjoyed staying here for 1 night and... More

Stayed with Elsa and Jaco for four nights in March. The house is beautiful and centrally located allowing one to walk to most points of interest like restaurants, boutiques, etc. They made restaurant bookings for me and I was picked up and dropped off.

The Centre-ville is an excellent and conveniently located guesthouse in the centre of Franschoek. As others have said before, Elsa and Jaco are wonderful and attentive hosts. They provide lots of information about the Franschhoek area and beyond, including recommending and booking resturants on our behalf. We enjoyed good breakfasts in the outside courtyard and our room was also very... More

I am Texan but my husband is from SA. We spent the most fabulous days on our honeymoon there in 2012. I reviewed them on another site but after going to the Trip Advisor for our recent (March 2014) trip to the Cayman Islands, I had to go back and post the very positive experience we had at Centre-Ville.

We stayed 3 nights and had the luxury of being in the honeymoon suite, with the wonderful deck with stunning views, jacuzzi bath etc. The breakfasts were very tasty the hosts spend an hour each morning setting the tables! They gave us excellent advice and made us most welcome, certainly worthy of another visit.

Our stay at Centre-Ville guest house was very pleasant. Elsa and Jaco were very friendly hosts with many good recommendations for things to do. The style of this hotel is sort of french country, so there is a lot of flowery feminine touches and antique styling. The breakfast was great and nicely presented in the courtyard. Franschhoek is a very... More

A place to relax - the room we had was extremely luxurious and with large windows on two sides. Ouside space on the stoep and a pool to dip into. The central location is useful too - easy to sample the delights of Franschoek in a day. It was a treat to ourselves to stay in such a place for... More
