We spent 3 nights in the ivy apartments. Pros and cons listed below: Pros: Apartments are in a super location, right in middle of franschoek. They are a very good, quite luxurious apartment, for very good value (when compared with akadamie street where we stayed a few years back which is lovely but a touch pricey) The apartment itself is...

These apartments are outstanding – beautifully furnished and decorated with special attention to detail on decor and colour co-ordination, giving the apartments a 5-star upmarket feel, as well as an incredibly warm homely one. The units are spotlessly clean with no maintenance issues at all. The linen is of top quality with thick fluffy towels, beautiful white gowns and super... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, a luxurious and stunning apartment. Full of the comforts of home and even a Nespresso machine! The apartment block is in the heart of the town and walking distance to the wine tram station. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Ivy Apartments and will definitely go back. I was disappointed with the management,... More

We stayed for two nights in a lovely, spacious duplex apartment. Finished to the highest standard, and very centrally located. The upper bedroom was too hot to sleep in unfortunately due to a very hot spell of weather, even with the air conditioning on full, but luckliy we had the downstairs bedroom to sleep in which was much cooler (there...

Disgusting experience which should have rounded off an amazing holiday in Cape Town. Apartment booked and deposit paid and confirmed in May 2014 for the penthouse apartment #1 in the complex. On arrival Saturday 27th approx 13:00 were informed that the apartment wasn't available it was rented out. We were offered #7 apartment or our money back. We had to... More

I planned my holiday in May 2014 and part of my trip was a 5 night stay at The Ivy Apartments in Franschhoek (highly rated on Trip Advisor a certificate of excellence holder?). I decided to pay the inflated rate for the luxury penthouse apartment No 1 because I was travelling with my mother as well as my family so... More

Luckily I stayed here 5 years ago so when I knew I was returning to Franschoek again I didn't even have to look at any other lodgings. Central, safe undercover parking, chic designer apartments and great value make this an obvious choice. Each apartment is individually designed with a different layout, we were in Apt 6 at the side of... More

We stayed in the ivy apartments for 2 nights in room 8. The apartment was clean and tidy with a small double bed on the top floor and 2 singles on the ground floor. The apartment was well decorated and had an amazing location at the bottom of town. There are some amazing places to eat in franschhoek and of... More

We were very pleased with the apartment, it was very attractive and well appointed and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. Although the service we received was very good, we did have a problem finding anyone who was in charge as the office was always empty and we had some questions. This may have been due to the...

We arrived very late at night and Wellington was there to greet us! The welcome was warm and friendly even around 2am! The apartments are well appointed and modern. The service from Wellington & Lisa was first class! We felt like we were in a 5* hotel but we were in serviced apartments in Franschhoek! Amazing work guys and see... More
