Was a pleasure and very helpful staff. Easy access to town and very accommodating. Was fortunate to have an upgrade as the lodge was not that full on a Thursday night. Staff was very friendly an helped with all the necessary issues.

We had our first group camp at FTL with 32 participants. Overall, the kitchen and rooms were spacious and comfortable, the lounge was well sound proof and cozy so we are extremely content with our choice. It was raining throughout the camp but Errol organised a school hall for us to do our group activities so we could complete our programmes without hindrance. Thank you FTL for accommodating us and making our experience an unforgettable one.

Initially we took the only accommodation available, a twin room with shared bathroom. We eagerly took the upgrade (en suite room with double bed, room 2) later offered for about R275 extra a night. It proved disappointing with a very cramped toilet and shower behind an ill-fitting sliding door and a basin next to a window in the room opposite the busy entrance to a Literary Festival venue. It was impossible to turn on the light to the en suite without waking one's partner. Otherwise, the place was clean, the experience positive.

Pleasant, affordable self-catering accommodation, centrally located in the heart of Franschhoek. Friendly, helpful staff - nothing is too much trouble for them. Well-equipped kitchen and dining area. The Lodge is environmentally conscious and makes use of borehole water to flush toilets, in view of the current water shortage in the Western Cape.

Sadly at the start of our stay, I was taken ill but staff were very friendly and helpful which made a difficult day, bearable. If it is possible to pass on my thanks to them, I would be very grateful.
