“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We stayed the weekend in Franschoek at Lavender Farm recently. It was the first time I have stayed in Franschoek, that wasn’t during one of the towns many festivals and its was a breath of fresh air. We spent the Saturday visiting beautiful local wine farms and although the weather didn’t hold up on the Sunday, we enjoyed a walk in the mountains.

Lavender Farm Guest House, is a great choice. It is just outside the town, so you get the feeling of being out in the country, but still close enough to the little shops and restaurant. The rooms are well appointed and we especially enjoyed the fireplace in room 8. Don was extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel totally at home. We would definitely stay at again.

P.S. Stony Brook, is a small, out the way wine farm, but well worth the visit.

We had bought a Groupon Deal for a weekend for 2 people for 2 nights at the Lavender Farm Guest House. We went there this past weekend (27/7/12 to 29/7/12). The weather played along and we had a wonderful stay.

We stayed in one of the Deluxe Suites and it certainly lived up to it's name. Everything had beautiful finishes.

The owner (Don) and all his staff were very friendly and accommodating. (Another guest was even given permission to have a helicopter land so that he could go for a flight and propose to his girlfriend.) (Thank you to Melanie for move to the Deluxe Suite.)

The breakfast was plentiful and I was delighted to enjoy the freshly made fruit salad. (As opposed to others places who use canned fruit in the mix.)

The farm is soothingly quiet and tranquil. Just what is needed for a midyear recharge weekend.

Kind regards
Karin and Doug

Room Tip: We would definitely recommend the Deluxe Suites at the Lavender Farm Guest House.

We have had a blissful weekend break at this stunning B&B, enjoying complete luxury and service second to none. We relaxed very quickly into the weekend mode with Don, the manager taking care of our every need. We even mixed up the DSTV channels twice and Don came down to help us, smiling and full of jokes, very eager to help, not in the least bit irritated. The position of the B&B being so close to town, yet out of the hustle and bustle is perfect. It is an incredibly tranquil setting and i have to say, being able to enjoy breakfast as late as 11am really made us feel so at ease and never rushed. We were able to relax and take our time and eating breakfast so late actually made it more like a brunch. Truly a little gem that we have found and will recommend to all our family and friends. There aren't many places in this world where one meets such genuine people, inspired by life. We will definitely be coming to stay again. Jodi and Lukas :)

Room Tip: We stayed in suite 7 which is the deluxe suite. One can see the lavender fields whilst lying in bed...

We recently stayed at the Lavender farm for ten nights and quite simply could not find fault with anything. The experience of Franschoek, including the people, scenery and excellent food have well exceeded our expectations, however it is the accomodation which we would go back for.The room was fantastic, spacious and clean with a daily cleaning service. Excellent value for money in this area. Breakfast was served promptly in the mornings, all freshly prepared by the kitchen staff. The place is run by a great guy called Don. His knowledge of the area is second to none and he was able to give us some fantastic recommendations for restaurants and wineries in and around Franschoek. The Lavender Farm is located a most scenic 20 min walk out of town, we did the walk often with our four month old baby in his pram. The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to make the experience memorable for us. Thanks to this great team, we will be back regards James, Michelle and baby Zakary.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Lavender are quiet and come with a lovely view.

My friend Jody and I stayed at Lavender Farm for three nights last week. Aside from being spotlessly clean and well-equipped with a very comfortable bed, the room was heated, spacious, tastefully decorated and as a bonus, ours had a fireplace. What a win, given the miserably cold weather! The staff were friendly and helpful and the manager was particularly attentive. The location was perfect; it was close enough to walk into town when the weather allowed. A perfect base for a winter break-away!

My husband and i had been at the Lavender Farm the weekend past and we had a stunning experience. Don the manager along with the staff are extremely friendly and they make everyone feel welcome.
The rooms are so big and spacious and they really have everything that one would need in them for your stay. Including a lovely king size bed that sleeps wonderful, DSTV and a massive balcony.

What more could i say, we are going back to the Lavender Farm in September as we had an amazing time.

Thanks Don and staff.

Best Regards,

Stacey-lee and Larry

My wife and I stayed at this establishment for the weekend. The rooms were ultra spacious with a nice living area and a very clean, modern bathroom. The suites are very new as it was completed in December 2011. Our room only had a shower(no bath), but it was a walk-in one, which was nice. The rooms had all your basic amenities(kettle, wine fridge, satellite tv,AC, etc.)

Every suite has its own little porch facing the courtyard and there are beautiful views of the establishment's own lavender farm and the surrounding mountains.

The location is brilliant as you can walk to Franschhoek main road, if needed. We didn't walk though as it was raining when we were there.

Location - Brilliant, as it is very close to town and all the great Franschhoek restaurants and down the road from the amazing Haute Cabriere(their MCC is amazing).
Accommodation - Love the double volume roof, very comfortable bed and well-kept.
Surroundings - amazing with the surrounding mountains and farms.
Manager- Don was super welcoming, very funny and personally took us through our room. Thanks Don.

I would definitely recommend Lavender Farm Guest House. It is amazing value for money.

I have already recommended this establishment to multiple people.
