It is well located and within easy walking distance to the main street and most of the restaurants. The staff was friendly. Breakfast: nothing outstanding but nothing wrong - average. The rooms, at least the two we used, average, bordering tired. But as mentioned by other reviewers, the honesty bar is good, and a lovely veranda. Nothing wrong but we... More

Very relaxed, lovely staff, great breakfasts, beautiful old building & classical garden, good quiet location, and very lovely room. Couldn't fault it. One minor annoyance - the wifi signal was occasionally intermittent in our room, but frankly does that matter? Cannot understand or believe the negative reviews about small rooms and frozen ham (does anyone freeze ham repeatedly, RMysay, I... More

The addition of the jacuzzi to our room was very nice but wasn, t very well maintained. There basin is very nice looking but not very functional. They spill water to easily... More

This was a last minute booking as I had purchased a City Slickers voucher on our road trip and made the booking almost immediately after I received confirmation of availability from Jackie who was extremely friendly and helpful. Checked in the next day after 1pm which was an hour earlier but was greeted by a very cheerful lady called Sammy.... More

Made a booking according to their photos on the website. Photos must have been shot with a wide angled lense because the rooms seemed decent in size. They are MUCH smaller than on the website. Towels were a bit threadbare. Breakfast was also not great. Cold meats consisted of ham only....which had been frozen and defrosted, seemingly more than once.... More

This old house is so close to all the action - you can hear the vibe of Franschhoek as you lie nocturnally in a comfy large bed that has clean bright white sheets which are changed daily, Private entrance, your own balcony and very own splash pool! Decent Bathroom shower facilities double ply toilet paper, a working fireplace and T.V.... More

Very nice and quaint hotel. Stayed over for one night on a Cape town roadtrip. Used a groupon voucher so got a very good deal. Room was very comfortable and clean. Bathroom well appointed but shower drain was blocked. Very near the town centre yet very quiet and peaceful. Loved the decor and furniture, big lounge with fireplace, old style... More

What a beautiful old house and every bit of it was accessible from the beautiful living room/fireplace, walking through the kitchen, veranda porch, off-street parking, 2 blocks from the main drag. We felt completely at home. Staff personable but not overbearing. I will come back and bring the family. Great place for couple or whole family.
