Very warm and friendly welcome. Room was very hot when we arrived and the aircon was not on. The toilet door is not so good in room 7. 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.

Sadly we only spent 1 night here, should have booked for more. Jackie is a wonderful hostess, helpful, friendly. The hotel itself is beautiful. We didn't sample the full English Breakfast, only had the Continental, but this alone was scrummy and quite large in variety. Rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and spacious. Attention to detail is superb. When next... More

The worst thing about our stay was that it was too short! We stayed only one night and it was truly lovely on every dimension: from the decor, to the comfort, the staff, the food and best of all - a touch of Italy with Eros playing softly in the background and a delicious Aperol Spritz. I hope we have... More

Spent a weekend at Klein Oliphants Hoek, it was wonderful. We were welcomed, shown around by the friendly staff. Room was beautifully decorated, spacious, breakfast was delicious, bed comfortable and bedding clean and beautiful.

We stayed for 2 nights over New Years. The house is beautifully maintained inside and out, with a simply stunning garden with a breakfast terrace. The living room provides a great space to read or chat and the small bar area with a well stocked cellar of local wines and honesty bar is great for a nightcap. The breakfast was... More
