“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

What a beautiful guest house. The accommodation is gorgeous; the setting peaceful. Justin is so helpful and informative and he has a depth of knowledge of where to go and what to do. This was our first stay in South Africa and was certainly a wonderful start to our holiday. I wish all Guest Houses were like this!

The Avondrood is an excellent Guest House. The location is an ideal base for a visit to Franschoek. Justin and his team could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The room, facilities and breakfast were all superb. We would not hesitate in recommending Avondrood and will certainly be returning.

We have stayed at Avondrood many times and each time when we leave we know we will return. Justine and his team have worked exceptionally hard to maintain the exceptionally high standard of this Guest House. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble during our five day stay. Justine is always on hand to give advice and all the restaurants we asked him to book in advance for us he did so with great efficiency. Every day he remembered exactly where we were scheduled to eat and seemed genuinely interested to know our opinion of them. Undoubtedly this will continue to be a great place to stay and relax.

3 couples traveling together recently stayed at Avondrood for 2 nights. What a treat. From the moment we checked in, meeting Justin, the owner, we loved the place. The rooms were large, very well appointed, and very clean with all the amenities that you would hope to have. It had a nice reception area with a bar. The grounds are completely surrounded by landscaping so you cannot see any buildings around you. You feel like you are out in the country. We were a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Franshoek. Justin made great suggestions and reservations for us for dinner each night. He was so gracious and entertaining as we had to encourage him to tell us stories of his days as a game ranger in Kruger. When we left, we felt like we had left a friend. This is a great place and if you can arrange to stay here, you will never be disappointed.

Avondrood is right on the edge of Franschhoek set back on a quiet street with fantastic and secluded gardens at the rear. The host was very welcoming and made sure our stay was as good as could be.

The only point to note and it is not a criticism is the room in the main house is nearest the road and next to the guest lounge so does get more noise than I suspect the other rooms get but it is the cheapest. I would stay there again but in a better room next time.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of your stay at Avondrood Guesthouse. Our entry level, Standard Deluxe Room can be a little noisy in the high season, as it is the only room facing the front street. All of the other rooms open up onto the tranquil garden area. We look forward to hosting you in one of these rooms next time!

Kind regards,
Justin

We are about to depart from Franschhoek after 4 nights at Avondrood. None of us want to leave this place as it has been absolutely delightful! Justin the proprietor is very friendly and attentive to every need. With 2 children of 11 and 13, the family suite was just perfect. The staff, the pool, the garden, the breakfast and the location (3 minute walk into village) make this place very special indeed.

We stayed for one night and it was such a great experience. Justin and the staff where super friendly and helpful, organising taxis for us and making us feel so at home. Beautiful clean rooms with everything you need and the swimming pool was a great break after the very warm day out. Best location and we parked the car and walked everywhere in town. Breakfast was superb as well.
