We have stayed at The Ivy on several occasions. We enjoy the centrality. Everything is within walking distance. Accomodation is excellent. Our only problem is the television control. We are never able to get it to work.

The Ivy is extremely well located in the heart of the Franschhoek village and within walking distance to all of the restaurants, shops and art galleries. The beautiful modern apartments have high ceilings with lots of natural light and are tastefully decorated. They are fully equipped, well laid out with attention to detail, and have off street covered parking. Wellington,... More

Beautiful apartments right in the centre of Franschhoek. Great location within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops etc. We had a lovely galleried bedroom and my daughter a room on the ground floor. The apartment was very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Would definitely recommend. We stayed in April this year. It's well worth doing the vineyard tour on the... More

These apartments are exceptionally homely, and offer luxury and convenience at an affordable price. I will CERTAINLY be visiting again and again. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Staff member Wellington is a great asset to this business. Thank you for a wonderful stay. It was the perfect retreat.

Amazing place to stay in Franschoek, beautiful decor, super friendly staff and lovely vibe. Toasty warm beds, Ferrero Rocher chocolate and snuggly bath robes on arrival. Nothing was a hassle. Easy to book and no problems on arrival. Very central in town, a walk away from the chocolatier and pancake shop. You don't need a car at all once you... More

This was our second stay at The Ivy, with this trip being more special than the first as it was our honeymoon. Lisa and Wellington went the extra mile and it was such a treat staying there. The attention to detail in the apartment was amazing and that it was personalised for us. The location is perfect and close to... More

Unbelievable holiday apartments walking distance to all amenities in Franschoek. Beautiful decor- Home away from home. Cosy and warm. Couldn't have asked for more. Feel spoilt and can't wait to be back again soon.

Wellington was exceptional. Friendly and very helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and luxurious. The accommodation is well positioned to explore the town. The DSTV remote was not working properly

We stayed at the Ivy Apartments for 1 week and enjoyed it very much. The apartments are well located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping area of Franschhoek. We had a two bedroom/bathroom apartment. Modernly furnished and in reasonable condition. The one bathroom is very very small, something like a toilet with a shower in it. Unfortunately we seem...
