My husband and I stayed 1 night with our S. African friends in order to visit the surrounding wineries. We came from staying 3 nights at The Last Word in Cape Town. We gave the Cape Town Last Word 10 out of 10. I would give this one 8 out of 10. It has the same small feel and lots... More

This hotel, set behind a secure gate on the main street of Franschhoek is a welcome respite from the bustling center of town. In a small town "bustling" is a relative term, but on the weekend when we were there is was certainly that. The rooms all have some small outdoor terrace and both the bedroom and bath are spacious,... More

We stayed in one of the villas recently which was very spacious and had its own small pool and lounge area. The room was large with a second sitting room and the bathroom also very good size. The property has a very old world charm and the host is very professional and courteous. He even went so far as to... More

The Last Word Franschhoek is probably one of the best 'hotels' we have ever stayed in. From the seamless welcome to the candles and free champagne on our last night we loved staying here. The property itself only has 10 rooms (we were in room 6) and has great attention to detail. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, with... More

Our fourth visit to The Last Word and as previously the warm welcome from Franklin was great. We were interested to see the improvements since they were flooded last year. The additional rooms and refurbishments have been executed superbly without detracting from the small personal feel. As always staff are friendly and eager to make our stay special. On my... More

After much research we chose this hotel to stay in mainly based upon previous Tripadvisor reviews. In the event we were a little disappointed with our choice although we think this was largely due to the room we were allocated. We were very warmly welcomed by Conrad and appreciated the cup of tea and cake whilst we were checking in.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the Last word. Beautiful, intimate and romantic setting. Even in the winter my heart was kept warm with unlimited sherry and a cozy evening fireplace in the lobby. Situated in the middle of town walking distance from shopping, restaurants and marketplace - this little spot has it all for a little couples getaway

The rooms are large and gracious with coffee,tea, wine and a late night snack included. The breakfast is individually cooked and marvelous don't miss the fried potatoes topped with crime fresh, two poached eggs and smoked salmon. The staff will arrange restaurants and wine tours. It was a joy to stay here.
