We loved staying at Avondrood and it really was perfect in every way. From the moment we entered the property we were impressed with excellent service and beautiful decor. The common area is so lovely with the huge stone fireplace, we just wanted to curl up there with a glass of wine. Our room was gorgeous; the bed was very... More

If there's one oasis not to be missed, it's this one! I do hours of research when planning a trip and I really couldn't have found a more beautiful place. The gardens were immaculate with a small pool and lovely warm jacuzzi. The breakfast was also seventh heaven. If you're looking for someone where you're very well looked after and... More

This is our second stay at Avondrood and definitely won't be our last. We stayed at Avondrood for 4 nights in March as we were getting married in Franschhoek. Justin always gives a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble for him or the rest of the staff. A surprise upgrade to the family suite was fantastic and suited... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. Justin could not be more helpful, he is so knowledgable on the whole area and helps with suggestions on where to go and bookings. The garden is lovely, so peaceful to sit and relax after all of the wine tasting. The rooms are of a high standard with everything needed. The lounge is... More

All the little details make Avondrood amazing. Beautiful room, looking onto a garden which is of a Kirstenbosch standards (the Gardner is wonderful). Justin was very accommodating & super helpful. Loved staying here, hope to return!

Great place, with a warm heart and body.You feel good when you enter the "reception", the gigantic fireplace warms as much as the owner Justin welcome. We stayed in the smallest room - and that was really spacious. Lovely garden, with a pool and a small Jacuzzi, nice breakfast.

Our only regret about staying here was that we only had a one night stay - more would have made it perfect! The guest house is in a good location - easy walk to the many restaurants. A lovely garden complete with pool made for a relaxing final afternoon in South Africa. Our room was extremely spacious and very well... More

Professionally run Guest House. Beautiful, spacious & comfortable bedrooms. Grounds very pretty. Excellent breakfast and owners could not be more helpful. 5 minutes walk from centre of Franschoek. Top marks for the Avondrood, would definitely stay there again.

Just stay here, you will not regret it! Avondrood is a beautiful guesthouse that is even more spacious than it seems from the pictures. It has beautiful gardens in which to have your breakfast and laze by the pool. It is set 2mins walk from town so there is no noise at all, just peace and quiet and stunning scenery... More
