We were doing the Garden...

Beautiful rooms and gardens in quiet area, but still within close proximity to Main Street and restaurants. Justin and his staff were excellent hosts providing lots of suggestions and ideas. The pool area was lovely and fantastic breakfasts!

A very high quality guest house right in the centre of Franschhoek. We had double bedroom suite with own lounge and balcony which was superb. It had a small pool for a dip and a nice garden area and they served an excellent full breakfast on the terrace. Private off-road parking, good wi-fi and a nice touch was an honesty...

We have just enjoyed a fabulous 6 night stay at the Avondrood Franschoek. The Avondrood is a small oasis close to the heart of Franshcoek. I spent my entire career in the hospitality and leisure industry and consider this small gem to be one of the finest in which we have stayed. The accommodation and amenities are first rate but,...
