The host is a very kind lady. The accommodation clean and modest, as is the rental price. Extra: swimming pool for the hot days like we had. We could walk to the restaurants in the evening. Own entrance.

The guesthouse is good value for money. It is an easy walk into Franschhoek village, and close drive to many wine farms. The room was neat and tidy. Pool available. Owner very friendly and made us feel comfortable.

The apartment is in a great location. Cosy, but has everything you need for a short stay. The bed is double (not queen) but has a good mattress so quite comfortable. Wifi was a bit hit and miss. Has a lovely verandah. Appreciated maps and info on the area which were available in the room. Barbara was easily contactable and... More

We have stayed before so know it well. We had the smaller of the two apartments and it has everything you need. This has to be one of the most reasonable places to stay in Franschhoek. The location is excellent. Just 100 meters or so from the main road, you could leave the car and walk everywhere. Could not write... More

Very happy with our stay here where we were upgraded to the larger self contained cottage. Well stocked, very comfortable bed, shower and bath, pretty garden and lovely verandah to relax on and two lovely cats to pet, especially the gorgeous black and white one,a very charming fellow! Easy walk to the shopping area, swimming pool looked tempting.

Lovely unit with a very welcoming cat called Popcorn. Very comfortable and close to the town and easily accessible. Lovely friendly Barbara ensured we were comfortable. For winter there's underfloor heating in the bedroom and well equipped kitchen. Beautiful views of the mountain from the little patio.

Spent a weekend here and loved it. Nothing fancy, but our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Its right in the heart of Franschhoek and makes for easy access to the town as well as the neighbouring wine farms. Highly recommended, and great value for money.

We loved our weekend getaway with an added surprise. There was an option for braaing that I wish we used. I recommend Sunny Lane wholeheartedly. Its situated near the middle of town, so it was easy to find everything in town.

Great hospitality and neat apartment. Location just right, out of the hustle and bustle of the main street. Will definitely remember it for future trips and recommend it to friends and family as well.

This is a great hotel, with such a good price. The owners are very friendly. Fransschoek offers beautiful views, sundowners and good places to eat and to drink wine of course! It's also nice to see the area by bike. The other hotels in Fransschoek are pretty expensive, but this is not the case with Sunny Lane, it was the... More
