The Corner House
Ranked #15 of 64 Franschhoek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 21, 2009

We stayed for 2 nights at The Corner House in February. The location couldn't have been better being 2 min walk to the main street with the wonderful restaurants and in very close proximity to the vineyards. We were immediately made to feel welcome and this feeling stayed with us for the duration of our stay. Dick and Daniele were superb hosts; they were warm, friendly, helpful and their suggestions on where to eat and where to go were spot on. The guest house was spotless and very comfortable. We stayed in the 'Red Room' which was wonderful, clean and spacious, and we had our own entrance and porch. The gardens were lovely to relax in and the pool refreshing. Breakfast was good with the choice of continental or cooked. There was an honesty fridge where you could help yourself to drinks (both alcoholic and non alcoholic) and tea & coffee making facilities in your room.We enjoyed our stay here so much we went back to Franschhoek toward the end of our holiday to Cape Town just to visit Dick & Daniele and their two cute dogs Marta and George. I can honestly say that this guest house and the hosts hospitality far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We can't wait to return!

We had a very nice evening here. The rooms were nicely decorated, the breakfast very good and the plunge pool refreshing after a hot trip. It is in the middle of town so it is very easy to walk into Franschoek for an evening meal and not have to worry about drinking and driving.

This an excellent base for exploring Franschhoek and its wonderful surroundings. The proprty is very well maintained and arranged, and Dick and Danielle are very welcoming and informative hosts. I can particularly recommend the self contained apartment - perfect for a family or a group of friends travelling together. I am really looking forward to my next visit!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Corner House with some friends. Our main regret was that we only had 2 days in our schedule as we would love to have stayed for longer has this been practical. A lovely, bright,clean guest house in a wonderful location (minutes from the centre of town). Service was first rate. Dick and Danielle are extremely likeable, welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful hosts. Great find. Excellent value.

I stayed at The Corner House for 5 nights during the Christmas period.

The house is very well located, only a 5 mins walk from the high street, in a quiet street. The parking on-site is a plus.

The garden is beautifully designed, the pool big enough for a refreshing swim, and the veranda overlooking the garden is the perfect place to sip a glass of the excellent house wine Daniele & Dick serve.

I stayed in the lilac room, which was very spacious and nicely decorated, with a quite large bathroom and a private court yard. The fire place was a welcome and cozy source of heating when the temperature dropped during a few evenings!

Daniele & Dick are the best hosts one can imagine. They are very attentful people, very laid back, and prepared to go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect.
