The best decision ever, reviews really mean something. A beautiful ,quiet part of town revealed this wonderfully restored building. I was met by Russell and john the owners, who from the moment...

This place was recommended by our friends. A charming guest house with spacious rooms, comfortable beds, a great view of the surrounding mountains and best of all, the warm hospitality extended to us by John & Russell. They were very helpful with activity suggestions, vineyard recommendations & restaurant reviews. I look forward to the breakfast every morning, freshly baked multi-seed... More

This was our third stay at Ashbourne and it was as good as before, ie service, location and comfort. The breakfast is freshly made and the coffee very good. Unfortunately we could only stay one night this time.

A return visit, and again a magnificent stay. Russell and John both made us extremely welcome, and are only to willing to help out with restaurant bookings and suggestions. Breakfast is a wonderful start to the day, with as much as you could want, and the fresh muffins are to die for!!! Thank you both for your hospitality.

Located within walking distance of the centre's shopping and restaurants this well presented and stylish house offered a good value stay in the town. Very good swimming and lounging area with excellent breakfast and helpful service. Just sorry we couldn't stay longer.

A great Guest House who looked after us recently on the HotChillee Cape Rouleur. Lovely rooms, breakfast and service. Nice and close to the main street and quiet at night. I'll definitely return next year.

Stayed in Ashbourne House for 3 very pleasant nights. We asked John to book restaurants for us and they were excellent recommendations. The breakfasts were also to a very high standard. The room was very large and really clean. A great base in Franschhoek and an easy stroll to the shops and restaurants.
