Firstly I would echo one of the earlier reviews on two points. The room that we stayed in was very large and a little sparsely furnished which did make it feel rather empty. Secondly, there are 5 dogs in residence and inevitably they make their presence felt, which is not to everyone's liking.
The guesthouse itself is comfortable and conveniently located for Franschhoek - it is walkable but it was recommended to us that we drive as the approach road is rough and unlit.
The best thing about the guesthouse are the hosts, John and Sheila, who were unflinchingly helpful during our stay organising transport into town and a driver for our wine tasting expedition so that we could all participate.
