“Superb B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2005

Our travel agent had organised B&B in Franshheok for us and judged on previous experiences, we had expected something good - what we got was something brilliant. This is a fabulous guest house which was once a mission school (still apparent in the main lounge area). There are only 7 rooms and we were given the Elephant suite on the first night. This was accessed straight off the reception area and had its own plunge pool and lounge area where we enjoyed a glass of complimentary port. The friendly and very informative staff made arrangements for dinner at a local vinyard and we were also given a list of recommended wine tastings in the area (make sure you definitely visit Stoney Brook and Glenwood). On the second night we had to change rooms but this was no problem as everything was moved for us and we had roof-level room with fabulous views and our own jaccuzzi.The garden at he front is gorgeous and leads down to the road into the village (2 minute walk). After touring the vinyards and tasting the wines of the region we had dinner at the guest house and what an experience that was. After aperitifs there were 5 courses with a different local wine for each one. Superb food,wine and service and well worth every penny. Highly recommended on all counts. A great place in a fabulous setting.
