Cape Vue Guest House
Ranked #48 of 64 Franschhoek B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Grace is a lovely, friendly lady. Great accomodation, beautiful surroudings! when we stayed here the weather was really bad. I can imagine this place looks and feels like paradise when the sun is shining! Lots of things to do in the wine region. We went for example for a picknick at Warwick Wine Club (very relaxing) and visited a bird park. Franschoek is beautiful with nice lunch bars and restaurants and nice little shops.

Franschhoek is on vogue. Hotels, guesthouses and restaurants are top but price are going up, especially for accomodation. Cape Vue is one of the remaining 3 star guest houses but can clearly compete with 4 star places. Situiated close to the Hugenotte monument it is the perfect place to walk into the village and have dinner with lovely wine from the valley. Grace and Michael are very friendly and helpful hosts which know a lot about Franschhoek's hsitory. Rooms are large, quiet, breakfast is very good. Franschhoek is a place where we always go to on our regular trips to Southafrica, Cape Vue is clearly the guethouse we prefer.

We were only able to stay one night but given the time would have loved to spend more time. Grace was a lovely host and made a number of calls to check on wineries, book a restaurant and arrange transport. The B & B itself is lovely with great views and an easy walk to town. The breakfast was wonderful.

Grace and Michael are simply delightful hosts. A tranquil setting in the beautiful wine region of Franschhoek. You will struggle to find better views paying 5 times the price of a room at Cape Vue. As a regular visitor to Franschhoek I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

We had booked a room at Akkerdal, but unfortunately something went wrong with our booking.
Instead we stayed one night at Cape Vue.
The pool with an amazing view was lovely, the owners really friendly and the location excellent.
We visited the city centre of Franschhoek by foot, walked back after dinner and felt absolutely safe.

If they had a 10 rating the Cape Vue Guest House would get one. We arrived to this absolutely stunning view and was warmly greeted by Grace who immediately offered us french press coffee and roobois tea. We sat on the porch surrounded (360 degrees) by one of the most beautiful scenes. It is like Switzerland and Napa Valley came together. The rooms, sitting parlor and personal porches finished off the experience. I cannot rave about it enough. My best friend who travels for a major banking company and stays in the best hotels in the US said it is the best place in the world he has ever stayed and cannot believe it only got a 3 star rating. He sat on his personal porch for hours just smoking his cigar and sipping the excellent wine we had purchased that day. The breakfast was very nice also. PLEASE STAY HERE!!
