We stayed here for 3 days to explore the winelands. The apartment suited us perfectly. We had a double bedroom and a 2 twin bedroom, each with their own bathroom. Décor was very nice with darker wood and furnishings. The kitchen was modern and well equipped. The apartment was close to town, close enough to walk to the down town... More

The advertised price is NOT the price you will be expected to pay. Our original quote was almost £50 which seemed very cheap but it did not include a weekend stay. The quote was then cancelled and a new one of £250 was sent to us. We therefore did not stay here purely on principal. The advertised price should match... More

Convenient location to all things good in Franschhoek. Two bedrooms, one master en suite and one with two twins. Would be a convenient location to stay with a family as the apartments have all that a small family would need to be a base for travel and exploration in the area. Manager was appropriately responsive.

Just nicely out of the town centre to be quiet, but an easy walk to all the great restaurants. We rented apartment 2 from Chris and Loraine at Tabeel Interiors. It was immaculate throughout with some nice quality touches and attention to detail. It would be difficult to improve on. We had a nice patio area to sit out on... More

Stayed for five nights in a lovely two bedroom apartment with a garden. We especially enjoyed the table and umbrella outside – sitting outside and taking in the wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. The kitchen appliances and bathrooms fittings are excellent with very good attention to detail. Loved the soap in the bathroom! Please note no WiFi available –... More

We found the apartment to be clean, extremely comfortable and well equipped. It has aircon which is very much needed in Franschoek. It was a perfect apartment for what we needed-nice kitchen and bathrooms, nice pool too. Not serviced however. We would definitely recommend!

It is easy to be sceptical when a property uses the word “luxury” as part of its name, the adjective is so overused these days. But the apartments at Sorbonne Luxury Apartments live up to their claim, they really are luxurious. We stayed in apartment #10 and it was simply gorgeous. The two bedroom, two bathroom apartment had all of... More

If you have limited luggage, this is the place for you! There is no elevator and the apartment we stayed in - there are a few - was on the third floor. There is a lockable garage, so you could leave your big suitcase there and just bring up the essentials. We were there for 4 days and it made... More
