This wine country B&B is the total package in scenic Franschhoek. It is located closely to many of the vineyards in the area. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff was terrific and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was included and the location was perfect. Highly recommend it!

We spent three lovely nights with family and friends at Klein Waterfall. The rooms were great and clean, the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating and overall it felt like a home away from home with stunning views. The breakfast was fab too.
