From booking right through to departure everything about the Avondrood experience was perfect. Justin's warm welcome and attention to detail makes every guest feel very valued and special. The house, gardens and accomodation are all beautiful - mountain views to die for. The location is incredibly convenient and Justin is very happy to help with recommendations for things to do...

Perfect location for the wine region and even Cape Town. Justin is an excellent host, attentive to guests and with excellent suggestions for trips and restaurants. The lounge and bar area is very welcoming with huge comfy sofas and a fire. Breakfast is served on the covered patio and is very good. The gardens are immaculate and very peaceful.

We had an amazing time at Avondrood Guest House as part of our Honeymoon to South Africa! Justin and the rest of the staff were splendid and were super helpful for planning our days out and making all reservations. The Safari Room was top notch and the rest of the property was stunning and well kept. And the location in... More

Absolutely stunning accommodation. The rooms, the grounds, the location, the service. Nothing could be faulted. Justin was the perfect host, with the most meticulous attention to detail and going out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed. His tips on local places to eat and visit came up trumps every time. This was my seventh trip... More

We stayed only one night at Avondrood but this guesthouse is absolutely superb. The location is great (5 minutes walk to the shops and restaurants) and the garden and swimming pool are excellent. The rooms are well designed and very clean. The breakfast is great. The owner is extremely friendly and keen to help. A great address. Highly recommended.

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!
