Avondrood Guest House
Ranked #2 of 64 Franschhoek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We recently stayed at Avondrood guesthouse and I can not find a single fault with this lovely guesthouse. Everything was perfect from the moment we checked in to the minute Justin send us off in our taxi.

Avondrood's manager, Justin, is a wonderful host. He greeted us with a smile every morning and was always willing to go the extra mile. He was always on hand to suggest and book some great restaurants and suggested which wineries to visit.

The rooms are lovely, bright, spacious and has the most beautiful views! They are turned down every evening by one of the three lovely ladies that work at Avondrood.

Breakfast is included in the price and you will not be disappointed. We could choose from a variaty of cold meats, fresh fruit, yogurts and some amazing pastries (the cinnamon swirls are to die for and come from a local little bakery) and then you can also have a lovely cooked breakfast.

Honestly, I've stayed a few hotels and guesthouses but nothing comes close to Avondrood. I'm already planning my next trip to Franschhoek and I know where I'll be staying.

Thank you very much to Justin and his lovely little "crew" who made our stay a wonderful and truly memorable one!

Room Tip: Any room at Avondrood is great!

This place is located just a block off the main street but once you are inside you feel like you are in the country. The garden area is very relaxing and well kept. Everyone was incredibly nice from the moment we arrived till we left. Justin was a perfect host. He setup reservations each night and was a great resource for what to see in Franschhoek as well as our next destination of Cape Town.

The rooms are big and very nice. It really was a perfect place to relax and enjoy some wine and food. The breakfast was perfect and I looked forward to it each morning. We cannot recommend this place enough!

My family and I recently stayed at the Avondrood Guest House and I was very impressed with Justin and his staff. Justin has perfected the art of making you feel like you are the only guests at his property. Additionally, he takes care of you with small touches that make all the difference. When we were there, it was unseasonably cold and wet, not only where there umbrellas in the room, but there was a fire in the lounge, and one in our room as well. We loved the decor and the food. A very good stay in a beautiful place!

This Guest House is delightful. We were personally greeted by Justin, the proprietor and taken through to a stunning lounge with open fireplace. There are fabulous manicured gardens with a pool. The bedrooms were comfortable and had a turn down service. The breakfast was very generous and good quality. Justin manages local bookings for you and is well versed in what to recommend. A fabulous choice and so close to the main village.

The moment we arrived at Avondrood, Justin, the owner of the property, was absolutely amazing to us. From helping us with our bags, to restaurant recommendations, to his advice on wine farms, he didn't miss a thing. The guest house is situated within walking distance to the small town with multiple dining options. The pool is refreshing with a small whirl pool on the side. Sitting on the lounge chairs under the trees was so relaxing. The room was nicely appointed with air conditioning, beautiful linens, African spa products, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced. After a great dinner in town, you can come back to the common area at the guest house and enjoy the fire and a night cap at the bar on your honor. This place was lovely, and we will definitely return again!

A lovely place, located just off the main strip so that restaurants etc are all only a short walk. Justin is an excellent host - nothing was too much trouble - his enthusiasm for maximising the guest experience was excellent.
