Plumped for Cape Vue based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. If you like swish, ultra-modern accommodation this will not be for you, but it very much was for us. The guest house has a sense of "old school" about it, almost as if it belongs in a bygone age, and that is meant as a compliment. Grace... More

Having stayed here for two nights I felt compelled to encourage you to do the same. Grace looks after this ex farm house meticulously, ensuring you have all the comforts you need. The setting is unbeatable, mountain views in all directions which can be appreciated from all rooms as they all have individual patios. The location is equally impressive being... More

We enjoyed the experience of staying in this spacious family farmhouse amongst fields of grapes with guinea fowl running around. It is well located close to the centre of Franschhoek near the Huguenot memorial but extremely quiet with beautiful mountain views in all directions. Grace was very helpful and kind in answering our many questions about the area. Guests have... More

A great quiet place to stay with the most magnificent breakfast view I think I've ever had. Loved the hosts who were chatty and very hospitable. Room, for 4, was most comfortable and very easy access at the end of the night without disturbing others. Easy walk to town and we found a great restaurant for dinner. Dom Pedro's (recently... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in December and had a fantastic stay. The location of the guesthouse is really convenient and is a stones throw from away Franschoek. We were staying with another couple and 2 young babies and the owners of the guesthouse went out of their way to help us with the little ones. The breakfast was... More

A welcoming guest house in a great position in Franschhoek - this last weekend was my 6th stay here. The beds are comfortable, the rooms very clean, and the views from gardens are wonderful. It is easy walking distance to the main street and all the great restaurants that Franschhoek has to offer - and don't miss out on a... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Cape Town. We were greeted warmly by the owners who could not do enough for us. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. I recommend requesting the room with the pool view as the scenery is just breathtaking. The restaurants in the area are superb, however we found ourselves just... More

Second stop after being recommended as a perfect location for wine route and didnt disappoint. Very clean and welcoming and lovely breakfast. Good location, easy walk to town for bars and shops. Not a boutique hotel but a homely old fashioned guest house. Will definitely be back.

Myself and my girlfriend were looking for a place to stay in Franschhoek for the long weekend and everything was booked out...until we came across Cape Vue Guest House. It is honestly a 2 minute walk from the main road (And all the attractions) and situated on the most beautiful vineyard. Grace and Michael are the most accommodating and friendly... More

I was looking for a place in Franshhoek for a nice weekend away with my partner that wasn't exorbitantly priced and stumbled across Cape Vue on Tripadvisor. Very glad I did! Incredibly nice for the price and so close to town. We were able to walk into town for dinner. Very convenient, clean and breakfast included! Best place in town... More
