“Best Guesthouse in Franschhoek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2008

This guesthouse is really great. There is a lovely pool and they have beautiful rooms. Breakfast was great as well as the beds! The guesthouse is very well located nearby the centre of Franschhoek. There was as well turndownservice in the evening, so for us this was like a 5 star hotel.

We want to thank you all for the great hospitality and service. We regret we could only stay for two days........

A wonderful guesthouse in a perfect location within walking distance of everything in Franschhoek. Russell was warm and welcoming. Rooms were beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Fab bathrooms.

Russell is the model Innkeeper: warm, hospitable and generous. As important, he and John also know when to make themselves scarce. Weeks ahead of our arrival they urged us via email not to delay in making lunch and dinner reservations at nearby eateries, and they made it their mission to get us into the places they thought we'd like.
Our room was spotless and luxurious. In the design of the room no detail had been overlooked, from the bedding to the lighting to a well appointed bathroom. Ditto for the public spaces and the pool. Breakfast was simple but excellent, served by a very professional, delightful staff.
The grace and unforced elegance of Ashbourne House -and it's hosts- made our stay in Franschhoek memorable.

Stayed December 2007
