“Our 2nd Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is the perfect place to stay while in Franschhoek, central location, rooms are spacious , very clean and the pool/garden is wonderful. Sharon and Charles are wonderful hosts and breakfasts are excellent. This was our 2nd visit and while we stayed here our mum celebrated her 80th Birthday, to mum's and our surprise Sharon brought gave mum a bottle of Pink Champange.. what a wonderful gesture!!

Sharon is an excellent hostess - very friendly, warm and welcoming and immediately marched off to return a few seconds later with a complimentary bottle of the finest bubbly from the region when she heard we had just got married.
by default of booking so late, i think we ended up with the best room in the house - No 7 - with the huge balcony overlooking the pool and sunny garden.
the beds were super comfy and the cooked breakfast the next morning was excellent washed down with plentiful freshly made coffee.
We cant wait to stay there again and are recommending this super little place to all our friends!
Its a few mins walk from the centre of Franschoek but sits on a quiet street 50m away from the Huguenot memorial.

Room Tip: we didnt see the garden rooms but had access to rooms 6 & 7 both of which were super. We liked r...

Thank you to the lovely hostess at this guest house. We have visited three times now and each time enjoy it. This time we had an upstairs room with a deck of its own and lovely views of the mountains. Didn't get to use the pool this time as the weather was a bit cool. Breakfast was lovely and they even made me a pancake especially. Recommend.

Room Tip: The upstairs unit with its own balcony is the best room.

I can't fault The Coach House, this being the 3rd time we've stayed. It's a very peaceful and quiet location, with good sized rooms, and Sharon can't do enough, booking restaurants, and offering advise on things to do.

We always get a warm welcome, and Sharon had a cold beer in my hand 5 minutes after arriving - excellent.

We'd misplaced a piece of travel documentation, and Sharon let us use her office PC to go online and print off another copy.

I've recommended the Coach House to friends in the past, will continue to do so, and being a return customer speaks volumes.

Spent 2 nights. What a great place this is, with lovely friendly people, owners & staff, who can't do enough for you. Large very comfortable modern rooms with great shower/bathroom, well stocked fridge.
Very handy for town centre 3 min walk but quiet at night. Beautiful garden with pool and sun loungers. Breakfast fantastic all you could want, cooked the way you want it.
Very relaxed felt at home. wanted to stay another night later in the holiday turned up on spec but full, so Sharon called some other guest houses to find us a bed for the night.
Would always want to stay here if in Franschhoek again.

Sharon and Charlie are excellent hosts, making everyone very welcome. The rooms are comfortable. In a lovely position near the town but also quiet. We have stayed in many places but this is a place we will return again and again.

Room Tip: Our garden room was lovely

... that was the feeling we had when staying at The Coach House. The owners Charles and Sharon make one feel immediately 'at home' with a nice drink outside on the terrace. Nicely decorated rooms with all modern comfort, really good and long enough beds in a quiet and safe neighbourhood gives the real holiday feeling. Restaurants and pubs at walking distance. But above all, a delicious breakfast to start the day !! An experience not only to recommend, but also to repeat...
