Beautiful accommodation nestled in the heart of Franschhoek. The staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are clean. Breakfast was the highlight, every morning was welcomed in with a fire and a breakfast spread from heaven. The atmosphere is tranquil, friendly, authentic much like the owner and her father Micheala and Rudy. Really felt at home during my stay and... More

The mrs and I checked in the Friday afternoon and were greeted by the warmest and friendliest lady named Karen. Then Michaela, the owner came to attend to all our needs personally. Our room was perfect, from welcome mints and cards. No TV, which was great. I could not ask for a more idealic setting. Everything on point right up... More

Wonderful place in an spectacular valley. The level of service was extraordinary, and the attention received from all the staff and management was also very kind. For sure we will return to the Corner House during our next trip to South Africa.

The room has a very comfortable bed, during winter months it can be a little bit cold in the room.The room was very clean. In the morning you can have continental and/or cooked breakfast, which is both really nice. Warm welcome by Michaella and her staff. Would definitely return here.

We stayed there for one night after we did the Franschhoek Tram. The hosts was very friendly and helpful with everything. We felt at home. Rooms were neat and clean. Location of guest house is also good - walking distance to center of town. Breakfast was lovely. Will definitely return again.

FirstlyShould we not have been told this before we arrived. We were supposedly upgraded. Only one out of the three could be considered upgrade. My room was small, with no heaters or under floor heating, an extension lead and plug lying across the floor to reach the electric kettle so one walked on it to reach a cold bathroom. Only... More

We had a wonderful weekend stay in Franschhoek during the Bastille Festival and The Corner House was perfect for us. We had booked 3 rooms so it felt like we had the house to ourselves. Breakfast was devine and Michaela is so accommodating and warm. I would recommend anyone to stay for a home away from home feeling.

Very enjoyable stay in this good value for money (in Franschhoek) guest house. Michaela went out of her way to make my stay comfortable. There is a nice and cosy fireplace in the lounge, ideal for the winter. Swimming pool for the summer and a garden to relax in. Let's hope that after the renovations they do not loose their... More

A home a way from home feeling. The rooms is bright and cheery, the service professional and yet a sort of relaxed vibe to make you feel at home. The owner Michaela Julian were a charming and well spoken host with her lovely husband. Definitely a place to revisit again if I'll be back in Franschhoek Valley.
