“Bravo, Bravo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The welcoming atmosphere of both Colleen and Robin made us feel at home instantly ! We we're shown the room which we loved, can't remember the room number but it was top of stairs to right. Small pool out back with the perfect number of lounge chairs to accommodate all the rooms, some with shade, some for sun lovers. The location was perfect, close to town and quiet. They helped us with dinner recommendations and reservations too. We spent three days eating fantastic French food, drinking impressive wine. Almost forgot, the breakfast spread (our thanks to the chefs) Yogurts, croissants, cereals, plus they offered meats/cheeses and offered to cook a hot breakfast every morning.

We attended the Champagne Festival and stayed for one night. Clean and tidy rooms - great breakfast and an overall friendly atmosphere. Thank you Danielle for your hospitality! We will certainly come back.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Corner house. It was great to be able to walk to the restaurants for dinner. The breakfast was also very good. Would give it 4.5 if it was possible. We also enjoyed the swimming pool, great for cooling off during summer!

Relaxed stay in the corner house.We were welcomed and treated with warm smile and hospitality by Danielle...She is an amazing lady , make you feel comfortable in the house..We had kids with us and Danielle was very kind and loving to them giving us access to the kitchen in case of any need. felt like staying in a home..Two very friendly dogs Jamie and Martha for kids to play! Lots of English books in the library to read too. Nice hot showers and a neat room. The guest house is situated at a walking distance from the happening streets in Franshchhoek.We would highly recommend this place to stay.Our 4 year old was provided with an additional mattress to sleep..

This place is amazing! Danielle, the host, is so sweet to everyone, the breakfast really good, especially the scrambled eggs with cheese and the terrace is so cosy. The garden is well kept and smells divine. Staying in Franschhoek - this is the place to stay!

Really nice B&B in Rosebank. The hosts were extremely friendly and the family suite was big and comfortable. The only thing we missed was a proper curatin for the main bedroom. And maybe some variations in the breakfast served. But all in all definately a place to recommend.

Very nice place to stay - homely, quiet and comfortable. The only snag was that it was very cold at night and there were no extra blankets. The heater was not effective. We certainly will be back.Thank you :)
