Justin met the four of us as we arrived and made us feel so very welcome. The rooms are spacious and really comfortable, with all the amenities you'd expect. There's a full bar and then honesty bar after 8pm and a great lounge area, plus outside seating. Our first evening, after our dinner, we came back and met other guests...

Justin and his Crew do everything to make a stay at Avondrood most agreable: they organize teetimes and make sure, that you get best seats at the most booked restaurants. The new rooms are spacious, the garden is - as ever - a paradise. Breakfasts with wonderful fresh french bread and delicious swiss coffee - a miracle!

This accommodation was recommended by our travel company Cedarberg and it was a great choice. We stayed at the beginning of November in the Safari room. The hosts Justin and Anne were exceptional and the only regret was having only two nights there. As the sun shone all the daylight hours we could enjoy having breakfast in the lovely garden...

We spent three nights in the Garden Room at Avondrood. The location is ideal and the accommodation beautiful, but what really makes this place five stars is the warm, friendly and knowledgeable hospitality offered by Justin and the team. We couldn't recommend Avondrood and Franschhoek more highly and will definitely be back. Thanks all! Laura & Rory

We stayed at Avondrood in late October 2016. We had the Safari Room, which was in the Superior Room category. The guesthouse and the room were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The room itself was spacious and quiet, with a cozy bed. It was located on the first floor, opening out into the lovely courtyard. The bathroom was gorgeous and...
