My husband and I came back to Avondrood for our wedding anniversary and once again experienced an outstanding stay. Avondrood is an exquisite guest house, with roaring fires, a glass of wine to end off your day, clean and beautifully decorated rooms with incredibly comfortable, enormous beds, luxurious bathrooms, delicious breakfasts....but most of all, outstanding owner/manager Justin and his competent...

Everything was fantastic. The welcome by Justin. The fire and drinks with local, Lesley. Their knowledge of the area and what it has to offer! Both Justin and Lesley suggested perfect venues for dinner and lunch. Avondrood is so tastefully appointed and very relaxing. We loved our stay. Farewell Franschoek! Thank you, Justin and Lesley!

Left very relaxed after sitting in front of the fire place after a great dinner in town which is only a 5 minute walk away. We felt like we were at home and with how hospitable everyone was. My first choice... More

We recently stayed in the 2 bedroom family suite ,which was easily comparable with any RitzCarlton or FourSeasons that we have stayed at. The service,however,was way above five star! Justin,the manager/part owner lends a personal touch to the service which is unbeatable.His previous experience running a high end game lodge comes through so obviously and translates into a warm personal...

This is an incredible place to stay! We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon in July 2014. Justin went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect, from booking restaurants, advising us on vinyards, organising the most amazing breakfast, helping us with directions into CT and ensuring the hot tub outside was a good temperature– we...

My wife and I spent a night away at Avondrood. We have stayed at some top hotels globally and our stay here can be ranked alongside those visits.

We stayed at Avondrood Guest House on our last night of a month long visit in the Western Cape and wish we had booked longer! We were warmly welcomed by Lesley and treated to a pot of tea next to the roaring fire in the lovely lounge/dining/bar area. The minute I entered Avondrood I felt relaxed. The garden area is... More
