The hosts, Jaco & Elsa, made this stay unforgettable - they are so friendly and helpful and made us feel like old friends. Breakfast was great, sjerry & fireplace a bonus and a great conversation with John (an regular guest). Bed was BIG as asked for and comfy with quality linen. Squeeky floor from upstairs room a bit disturbing. Great location ! Tina and I shall go back to stay and support these great people. Thank you Jaco & Elsa.

Room Tip: Ask if room upstairs is occupied if staying downstairs

We stayed here for 2 nights and had an amazing time. We booked a room upstairs which was lovely but according to Elsa it was too cold there so she gave us a large room downstairs. Lovely decorated with antique beds and even victorian baths! It was very cold the nights we stayed but the owners made sure we had enough blankets. We liked chatting with Jaco and sitting by the fire with him. We even were allowed to play the piano in their living room!

Highly recommended! And if you are not visiting in winter choose a room upstairs, they are amazing!

My Mom and I had a wonderful two-night stay at the Centre-Ville B&B last week. Our ground floor room was spacious and the beds were comfortable with abundant linen. Jaco and Elna were the cherry on the top, going the proverbial extra mile and making us feel completely at home! Lots of loving touches (complimentary sherry in the bedroom, a cozy fireplace) make this B&B a place we would happily return to!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are newer so if you prefer something more modern and you don't mind stairs, then...

We stayed at the Centre-Ville Guest House for 15 nights from 28th March to 12th April 2013.
This is a lovely old property with lots of character and is ideally situated for shops, restaurants and surrounding vineyards.
The view of the mountain from the hotel is beautiful
We had a lovely room with a four poster bed and the breakfast was great.
This was our first visit to South Africa and the owners of this Guest House, Elsa and Jaco were so friendly and welcoming. Their hospitality was superb.
Thier knowledge of the area and the advice they gave us on places to visit was invaluable and greatly added to the enjoyment of our holiday.
Franschhoek is a lovely little town with some great restaurants serving excellent food at very reasonable prices.

Loved our stay. Lovely large room and bathroom. Great breakfast and room was made up by the time we returned after eating, which was pretty impressive. Owners very keen to help and recommended great restaurants. Only downside is the creaky floorboards above. It was a great find in a pricey town.

This is without doubt the finest guest house I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully appointed, the hosts cannot do enough for their guests and welcomed us into their lovely home. The location is super and everything in the Town is within easy walking distance.When we inadvertently left some items of clothing behind they assisted me in ensuring that the items were returned to us. All in all a superb experience and we will return to Centre Ville next year.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are fabulous!!
