I made two visits to Erica's in 2010 and 2011 and although a bit old fashioned it was a vibrant place and always seemed to be full. On arrival, guests would be greeted with a small glass of local wine or sherry, but no longer. Now it seems somewhat down at heel and in desperate need of freshening up and... More

Very accommodating, helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend it to anyone needing accommodation while they have a busy itinerary in the winelands. Also ideally located so you can walk into town.

The two women employees running the B&B are excellent. We struggled with other guests who came in late, made a lot of noise and partied until the early hours of the morning .With out an owner present to take charge of the situation it spoiled our stay.

Checking in was easy. The place is tucked away in a residential neighborhood a few blocks from the main street. Room was clean and pleasant, patio looked nice. Breakfast was simple but nice. Thumbs up

Situated on outskirts of town in leafy neighbourhood. Short walk into town handy but by car, parking a nightmare. Spacious guesthouse with large lounge and eating room. Pleasant terrace for sunny breakfasts. Comfy rooms with more than adequate plugs for charging facilities. Bedside tables small, no draws or shelf for mags or books, just enough space for clock and cup... More

Paul, who runs Erica Guesthouse, is the best host we ever had. The room was great, breakfast also and Paul's guidance to Franshhoek was splendid. We have no complains what so ever. If we ever visit Franshhoek again we will certainly visit Erica Guesthouse.

Bathrooms esp shower needed a good clean! Staff friendly but removed all our food items from fridge and only returned one item after queries. Blamed everything else on other guests. Disappointed by that.

We stayed there with my husband for 3 nights . The rating doesn't have an option for "good" so I had to choose "average" as "very good" doesn't reflect the b&b. The room was comfortable enough, cleanliness was fine but could be better. The cute part was the swimming pool area. Not very big but with lots of plants and... More

Spacious guesthouse and convenient location. Nice and quiet. Décor is very English and a little tired and old fashioned and could do with modernising. We were the only guests. Breakfast ok but we had been spoilt in comparison to other breakfast that we’ve had in South Africa. Outside it looked like they had lost one of their ratings as a... More
