The impeccable interior design plus open plan loft of The Ivy made our stay in Franschoek so wonderful. Location is perfect, and we felt safe and comfortable... I give the IVY 10 out of 10 for being the perfect Franschoek accommodation choice.

My first time in SA for a friend's wedding, and being a Londoner I was a bit scared! Anyway, Wellington met me on my arrival and made me feel like part of the family from the very first moment. I stayed in apartment 7 which is basically a duplex penthouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge and fully equipped... More

The Ivy Apartments are perfectly located, you’re walking distance to everything on the main strip in Franschhoek. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathoom loft apartment, it was clean and very spacious. There is not a lot of staff around though, so if you have questions and concerns you don’t really have someone around to help. Our washer/dryer handle was... More

We were met by the concierge who managed our luggage. Our stay was delightfully uneventful in the first/second floor apartment because it had absolutely everything including and espresso machine and fresh milk in the kitchen. The towels, dressing gowns and linen were super.

We spent the weekend in Franschhoek and stayed at The Ivy Apartments. This is an amazing apartment in the heart of the town. Furnishings and linen are top class and the apartment was spotless! The welcome and service from Wellington was excellent. Secure parking was a bonus as well.

This was a weekend stay and Lisa and her team were very friendly and accommodative. The apartments are gorgeous and located right in the heart of the little town. I will definitely stay there again...

We stayed in The Penthouse for 3 nights in October and can honestly recommend this place. The apartment was beautifully furnished and Wellington was a star. The coffee, tea, water, chocolates and milk were a really nice touch. Will be back!

We were visiting Franschhoek from Toronto for a wedding. My friend and I stayed for 7 nights at the The Ivy and loved every moment of it. The flat was nicely decorated with comfortable beds and linen as well as 2 full baths with rain showers. There was a full self-catering kitchen and a washing machine for laundry. The staff... More
