We had a 3 night stay at La Galiniere. The cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. The furnishings were also very comfortable. The heated bathroom tiles were a treat. The little cottage was situated in a way that made out stay very private. We will definitely return there.

Lovely little cottage (ours was right next to the office, which didn't affect us as it was the weekend - but may have felt a little less private if we had been there during the week). Bottle of their own wine left for us, a very nice touch. Braai brilliant, used it each night. There are 3 large dogs on... More

The cottage was exactly as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located within an easy walk of the restaurants and shops and although on the main road is quite quiet. A complimentary bottle of red wine from the vineyard was a nice touch.

Lovely atmosphere around the property. The owners left us a bottle of their own wine in each of the cottages we rented. Good value for money compared to the more central establishments but you can still comfortably walk to and from Franschhoek. Would definitely stay here again.

We spent a very relaxed weekend in Franschhoek, particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and shady verandah for sundowners.Would recommend particularly for self-catering, proximity to the town centre and for its privacy.

We have a number of complaints regarding our recent stay at this property. Although the main house does have wifi, this is not on offer to visitors unless as an emergency. There is no safe provided and the owners accept no responsibility for anything stolen - understandable, but surely a safe would at least make guests feel able to leave... More

Dear Wendy, I'm sorry you felt the need to post your concerns on TripAdvisor after I had already responded to the issues you raised by email. As indicated in my email, our property does not offer internet access on our website or in any other literature (printed or online). I therefore feel that it is unfair to criticise us for... More

This was a comfortable place to stay. The bed in the cottage we stayed in was very good. The kithen was well equipped and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The dogs, which I was slightly concerned about (not being a dog fan) did not cause any problems and were placid. The cottage is possibly too far to feel... More

The only thing I would change is the bed and pillows. Situated in very good location close to everything and very nice town and wines estates are excellent. The owner of B&B was very welcoming also the staff people. Beautiful views of the Mountain

Dear Chantal, Thanks for taking the time to leave a response. We appreciate the feedback. We were unaware until recently that the quality of the bed in our Cabernet Cottage had deteriorated. Another guest commented to us directly that the bed was creaking. We purchased and had a new bed delivered the same day. More
