“Great B&B”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This is a wonderful B&B. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The gardens are lovely as is the large sitting room with a wonderful fireplace. Good breakfasts. It feels like you are visiting your favourite aunt. Linda is the best, she gave us suggestions on where to visit, shop and eat. All were right on.
Franschhoek is a great place to visit. GREAT wines and food at reasonable prices.

Franschhoek turned out to be a wonderful town, much smaller, quainter and beautiful than stellenbosch. The accommodation was great, beautiful rooms with a decanter of port to welcome you, huge lounge room with big fire and comfy sofas, and the wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable Linda to guide you where to eat, drink and wine taste.... WE loved it so much we stayed for 4 nights instead of the planned 2.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest, it was very nice. All of them looked lovely though.

Excellent hotel - great, unique rooms, in town location. We were able to be there in late fall, and made full use of the in-room and great room fireplaces. Great dining recommendations from the staff. We'd stay there again without question.

Absolutely magnificent place, in a very calm area in Franschhoek. Cosy, comfortable, very nicely decorated, definitely the best way to close a wonderful trip to South Africa.

This is a lovely cosy pretty b&b in the centre of Franschoek. It is very well situated to allow you to stroll around the town. Great recommendations from the manager for wine tours, restaurants etc. Pool is lovely to relax after a busy day wine tasting. I highly recommend this place.

We spent a wonderful few days here. It is beautifully run. Linda was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat and she made us feel very much at home. It is so well situated for walking down to the main street with all it's wonderful places to eat. Very pretty garden and a decent sized pool to relax by after a hard day's wine tasting!! We will definitely stay here again.
