We stayed in the Rose room and the guest house certainly lived up to our expectations, it's in the most beautiful setting. The garden is full of flowers and you see the mountains all around you. The pool is small but you can still swim in it, unlike some splash pools. We found it to be excellent value, there's no... More

I stumbled across this place a little by accident on Trip Advisor because it isn't listed under hotels. I'm very glad I did though as the location was stunning. It's only a few minutes walk into the town centre but feels a world away. Swimming in the pool was one of the most picture perfect moments of the trip, if... More

We stayed here for one night only but we were so impressed by the whole experience. The location was perfect, very close to the Huguenot memorial and the lovely gardens there, within easy walking distance of the town, yet it felt as though we were way out in the country. We received a warm welcome from Grace, who showed us... More

We stayed here for one night in February after a friend's wedding just outside Franschhoek. It was quite difficult to find intially as the road is pretty much a dirt track which wasn't recognised by the Tomtom, so we had to go and ask at the information centre in Franschhoek, but once we found it it was very easy to...

The guesthouse is superbly located close to the Huguenot memorial and all the restaurants of this lovely town. With the mountains around, there can be few more beautiful settings in the world. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable, with decently sized and equipped bathrooms. However, the warm friendly service that was there in 2007 seems to have disappeared... More

Stayed for two nights with my extended family in Apr 2010. It's located very close to the centre (literally 5 mins walk) - so great for going out in the evening without the car. Grace was a warm and helpful host - organising babysitters, recommending vineyards and restaurants, and making tea in the afternoon! The location is stunning with the... More
