We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in February 2014. The apartments are centrally situated and have good parking, which is secure and shaded. We have stayed in Franschhoek many times, so we are familiar with the town, its facilities and accommodation. The Ivy is listed as luxury, which I’m sure it was at some point in the recent past,...

The Ivy is a perfect place to stay in Franschoek. Luxurious, clean , well run and within walking distance of great restaurants and shops. It is everything that you need including in my case a Nespresso machine. We will certainly stay again

You know when you walk into a place and go "Somehow, past me made an accidentally fantastic decision"? This happened to me when I walked in. There is off street, covered parking (which is very important in SA) with a electric gate. The actually apartment is split into two levels, with a mezzanine floor with one bedroom, and another one...

It was a great place to stay with short walking distance to a nice shops in Franschhoek. Above average apartment size. A/C working fine. Secured parking spot. Internet connection was very poor. Okay price level.

Beyond our expectations. Great value for money. Excellent team with a special mention for Wellington. The location is superlative with no need to take the car out as everything is within walking distance.

This is a great place to stay. Just off the Main Street but nonetheless very quiet. The parking is just below the apartments and with secure entry. Caretaker on site all the time. The apartments are very well furnished and gives the freedom to come and go as you please. Given the excellent restaurants in and around Franschhoek, self catering... More

if you want reasonable spacious accommodation in the centre of franschoek this is a good option. the apartments are spacious, but the finishing and the decor is pretty naff which is a shame as the style of the apartments (high ceilings etc) would welcome a really well furnished and decorated place but instead the cushions, curtains, and furniture is very...

We rented two apt's at The Ivy #1 and #3. #1 being the largest and most special. However, both were very nice and well appointed. We were 4 girls from the US and we felt very safe. They have a gated area where you can park your car securely but we always felt safe. We were only there for 2... More

Stayed in apartment #3 and upon entering, were amazed at the attention to detail in the furnishings and the spaciousness created by the vaulted ceiling. quite stunning. The daily service was very good and overseen by the obliging and friendly guy called Wellington. Ideal location just off the main street in the heart of Franshoek. This was our second stay,... More
