Excellent B& B. We had a suite with separate TV/lounge, king size bed,bathroom with large shower & Jacuzzi bath -- all modern stylish and very clean. Breakfast was good but not exceptional especially as on one of the mornings a cooked breakfast was not available due to Escom electricity power saving. Highly recommended. We would stay there again.

Our second visit to Gable Manor, the first being shortly after Don opened in Franschhoek some 12 years ago! It was great to see how the place had matured into the loveliest place to stay. We traveled with friends and relatives in the wine industry. Both Don and Colleen gave us excellent advice on the best places to visit for... More

Just returned from a fantastic week in Francshhoek where we stayed at Gable Manor. Our host Don went out of his way to make our visit a true delight. Highlights included breakfast in the garden terrace room, wine by the pool and a comfortably appointed room with a sunny balcony. Don made winery and restaurant recommendations and helped us organize... More

We booked this online and only afterwards read the latest reviews (not so great) so I was a bit apprehensive about our stay here. We emailed ahead with Colleen re. getting us a booking for an evening dinber on Valentines Day which she did quite promptly. We were impressed as our previous attempts at various wine farms had failed. Don,... More

Lovely, spacious rooms, quiet pool, great breakfast. Colleen booked things for us (notably a wine tour, by the very knowledgeable and infinitely patient David) including restaurants. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre, but on a quiet street, so peaceful at night.

My wife and I booked into Gable Manor on recommendation from a friend. We were driving across the country on our annual "home leave" and stayed at many B&Bs, hotels and self-catering establishments during our trip. Gable Manor was by far our most enjoyable stay. Our hosts, Don and Marlyn, were very attentive and made sure that everything was to... More

This was the last place we stayed at on our S Africa trip and it was by far the worst. The room we were in (room one) was on the ground floor and very dark and gloomy. Loads of wardrobe space if you want it though!!! No fridge, mini bar and cold showers every morning as no hot water. We... More

We stayed at Gable Manor as the last part of our South Africa adventure. The brief my girlfriend and I had set ourselves was to relax, eat well, drink wine and have a little pool time. We hit the jack pot with Gable Manor. The room was great, very peaceful and the views from the balcony were lovely. Breakfast was... More

We stayed at Gabel Manor over Christmas for two nights. When we arrived at the house we rang the bell but nobody opened so we left for the village and returned an hour later. We were then let in and had to fill in the normal registration forms. The welcome was not as warm and as it normally is in... More

Gable Manor is a very warm and welcoming place. It's just like your staying with a friend. We were lucky enough to have the downstairs bedroom so we didn't have to cart out luggage upstairs. Nice big bathroom with separate shower and bathtub. Wonderful made to order breakfast included. The staff made all our dinner reservations and they give you... More
