This was our second visit to Klein Oliphants Hoek within two months. Visited previously on a discounted voucher special and was blown away by the overall experience.The residence is situated about slap bang in the middle of the town but not in a busy neighbourhood. The place breathes elegance and I imagine it to be a very good copy of... More

We wanted a one night honeymoon getaway and this was beautiful. We stayed in the jacuzzi room. It was private and secluded and perfect. The only drawback was that it was a boiling hot day and the jacuzzi heating had been left on so it had to be drained and filled with cold water. They did that fairly quickly after... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The house and garden are lovely and the staff could not have been friendlier. We had a ground floor room which was very comfortable. The small decanter of port was a lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent. Freshly cooked to order and a range of fruit, cereal etc. I couldn't get Internet connection in the... More

This was a perfect place to stay on our honeymoon. BEAUTIFUL and full of character with amazing rooms, and plenty of peace and quiet. Very romantic, and the service was superb, as were the food and drinks served! Its centrally located and has a lovely garden and pool.

We enjoyed a couple of nights here in March as we toured South Africa. The location is just perfect - two streets off the main road in Franschhoek and an easy walk to a bunch of fantastic restaurants and shops. Our room on the first floor was spacious and well-kept, and the rest of the house is gorgeous, with comfy... More

Klein Oliphants Hoek is a nice little B&B very close to the center of Franshoek (an _very_ easy walk). The setting was nice, but I was put off because there are not just cats outside, but within as well. I am extremely allergic to cats, and it would have helped me to know about them. Thankfully, our room was not... More

We booked for 3 nights as part of a 15 night round South Africa tour. We arrived on the hottest day of the stay, and I have to say that had we only been staying for 1 night, we would never have recommended the hotel to anyone. Our arrival was around 5pm, we rang the door bell and were met... More

It was my 4th time at Klein Oliphants Hoek, and definately not my last. I LOVE the beautiful house, the friendly staff, the garden and the breathtaking view over the mountains. The location is also one of the best in Franchhoek. Who could ask for more. I can REALLY recommend the place.

We stayed just 1 night to celebrate our anniversary and had a generally good experience. The guesthouse is just 2 blocks back from the main road with great access to the shops and restaurants. We enjoyed being able to walk back from our restaurant without worrying about parking and how much wine we were enjoying with our meal! The grounds... More
