We stayed at Fransvliet for a week in March and couldn't have been happier with our choice of B&B. Shirley is a brilliant host and every morning will give you ideas about where to go and what to do. She recommended many vineyards for us to visit and also restaurants to eat in. Shirley will also book the restaurants for... More

The rooms are modern, spacious and well equiped with a fire place, a fridge and a nespresso machine. Bed is very comfortable. Very nice big bathroom with seperate shower. It all looks topclass (we usually stay in 5* hotels but Fransvliet is... More

I am not really sure what i can add to the rest of the reviews but i think we found the perfect place to spend 3 nights in Franschoek, our last whilst holidaying in South Africa. If you get the chance to book early enough, its worth asking Shirley where she recommends eating locally; she has some great tips not... More

Thank you to Shirley, Victor and staff. We loved every minute. Beautifully appointed comfortable rooms, the most delicious breakfasts including the best croissants I have tasted in ages and home made jams. Friendly and helpful hosts. Can't think of anything else you could ask for including magnificent views .We will be back.

Thank you to Shirley and her team for a wonderful stay (4 & 5 January), we found everyone at the guest house incredibly welcoming and attentive. Rooms were incredibly comfortable and the food was exceptional - lovely tasty breakfasts that were a little different from the normal 'eggs, sausage & bacon' that you usually get.
