From a pointless 27 inch CRT TV to non existent wifi signal, these are the small things that make a difference to me, I want to be connected to the internet properly, this is 2015 after all. Having another wifi range extender for the upstairs rooms is not hard to do. The TV, just remove it. Its insulting and frankly... More

This beautiful guesthouse is well kept and conveniently situated in the centre of Franschhoek. We were warmly welcomed by Tim and his wife Nadine. They did everything possible to make our visit special, such as making dinner reservations and serving us complementary wine on our wedding anniversary. The rooms are spacious, modern with great beds and very clean. Breakfast is... More

I was taking part in a 4 day bike race run by Hot Chillee, the 2015 Cape Rouleur, which was based out of Franschoek and I was lucky that I stayed at Ashbourne House which is peacefully located do just off the main road. It was the perfect place to relax post race with very comfortable air conditioned rooms and... More

Luxurious, safe Guest House, comfortable rooms with very good, clean en suite bath rooms. Quiet but close to town centre in easy walking distance. Breakfast freshly prepared to your wishes. Hosts Tim and Nadine 'foresee' your wishes to book activities or dinner

We stayed at this lovely place earlier this month and I can't say enough good things about it. Firstly we were warmly greeted and upgraded to a bigger room. They are tastefully furnished and everything you need is there. We hadn't booked a restaurant to eat and was advised by Tim we needed a reservation at the places locally as... More

The owners had only just taken over the guest house, so were still feeling their feet but could not have been better hosts. They made restaurant reservations and booked taxis for us, also printed off maps for the next part of our trip. Our room was spacious, breakfast was great and would not hesitate to recommend or stay there again.... More

The welcome and breakfast were good, but we were rather uncomfortable in the far room by the pool which was rather odd. It was dark because the only source of light was the glazed door facing the pool area. There was no privacy if the curtains were open. The room layout was also strange with an open plan bathroom in... More

We were greeted by the new owners who were very friendly and immediately made us feel welcome. The rooms are lovely as is the pool.Breakfast was the best we had anywhere in SA.... More

A well positioned, comfortable hotel. The new owners were very hospitable. The room was large, well laid out and comfortable..And the breakfast was the best in our two week tour. We'll be back again (Deus Vult!.)

Having recently returned from a glorious five week visit to South Africa , Ashbourne House was certainly outstanding among the many excellent four and five star properties which we stayed in. The accommodation was of a very high standard in terms of furnishing and bathroom and courtyard pool area was very attractive . The new owners, Tim and Nadine could... More
