A lovely location right in the centre of Franchhoek.Large and comfortable room, with terrific views to the mountains.Nice breakfast.Lovely courtyard and swimming pool.Perhaps the service little impersonal?

Friendly staff, well appointed rooms - if not terribly exciting, this is an old building and could be stunnig, good breakfast and just off the Main Street. Garden probably lovely in summer. Very fairly priced for Franschhoek.
