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

We experienced a very friendly service from the staff, well positioned in a quiet environment, close to restaurants and other amenities, it is ideal for a quiet and intimate timeout with your partner. Linen was always kept fresh and clean, that I liked very much.

We spent 2 nights for our mid-year anniversary weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility, except for the 2nd night, there was a young girl booked in the room above us and she played with marbles on the floor til midnight! But that was not the hotels fault. Bad parenting. The breakfast was perfect. We've been to many breakfast places in... 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

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
