A very friendly guest house with panoramic views from the rooms. Excellent breakfast, eat as much as you want. Nice swimming pool area and cosy bar for those 6pm sun downers. About 10 mins drive to Franschhoek.

We enjoyed very much our stay at this Cape Dutch styled lodge. Our room had a high ceiling and a fan, as well as a mosquito net around the bed (even though no mosquitos were seen or heard). From a small terrasse we looked over the vineyards to the mountains behind. A quiet and large pool area were located 20... More

Nice place we stayed for a night. Pleasant pool, good rooms and very enthusiastic staff. A few miles out of Franschhoek, a green and peaceful (wine)town. We got tipped but he owner for a nice restaurant overlooking franschhoek valley and it was marvelous. Next day enjoyed a good breakfast.

Klein Waterval Riverside Lodge is located perfectly for anyone who wants to experience the Franschoek valley. Their rooms are spacious and clean, and their staff were really friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back ourselves, and will recommend it to others.
