Selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and it lived up to the high ratings. It is a charming two story hotel/B&B only two blocks away from the main road, R45, in a quiet location with parking right in front. The two house cats are in charge of greeting guests and they do an excellent job. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Excellent restaurants are within walking distance and many wineries are within a short drive up and down the valley.
Breakfast is served in a comfortable dining room with a large outside garden adjoining. The food was excellent with cooked to order eggs and sides.
There is also a large common area with comfortable sofas and chairs.
We had two rooms, both upstairs. One was a cozy attic room and the other had an outdoor terrace with a spa. An excellent place to sample the day's wine exploration.
Franschhoeck is a place worth staying several days and the Klein Olphants would make an excellent base.
