A beautiful B&B overlooking the sea. We had a huge room downstairs, with doors opening straight on the the front where there was parking. This is the first B&B where I have stayed where there was a separated sink for washing the coffee cups, a little thing I suppose, but it sets the standard of the whole place, a microwave... More

Excellent...Excellent...Excellent...Without doubt one of the finest B & B's on this route. Amanda & Helmie were superb hosts and we will without doubt return there when the opportunity again arises. Breakfast a total surprise and very enjoyable. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Thank you again. Chris & Mickey from Saudi

Very welcoming guesthouse, right on the coast in Franskraal. We had the groundfloor room, equipped for disabled, which was quite average. However, the very friendly and helpfull hosts Amanda en Helmie do make the difference. Did you ever have a guesthouse that put your national flag out on arrival?

We stayed for one night - the room was absolutely fab, perfect for a tired couple just in from London - our hosts made us very welcome. The breakfast on the veranda / rooftop was excellent - thoroughly recommended. Andy & Julie

Franskraal B&B is marvelous! I have been visiting this particular area of South Africa since 1998 and, being so fond of the surrounds, I am rather particular when choosing my accommodation. Simply stated, the owners, Amanda and Helmie, are a class act. They know how to facilitate all of those enjoyable aspects and small details that will make your stay... More

great place to be - location, cleanliness, room facilities. Amanda & Helmie really do care for their guests, and they spoiled us - not only with a great breakfast but also in organizing tours etc around our stay in their house. We felt very welcome and "at home". Definitely a place which we can highly recommend! (and we´ll come back... More

Lovely place to stay, and we were given a very warm welcome on our arrival. A very comfortable large room with excellent amenities. Our room was at the front of the property, giving us great views of the coast.

We stayed here with our son, daughter in law and 2 year old granddaughter for three nights in August. Arriving at the Franskrall directly after two long flights from the UK and a two hour drive from Cape Town we were warmly welcomed by Helmie and Amanda. The location is exceptional with a view over the bay, and although the... More
