The very best of South African hospitality. Truly special. We loved it so much we are planning on staying there next time we are in franschhoek. So pretty and perfect. Great value for money too! The staff and management were very warm and friendly.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite on the ground level, next to the pool.

Beautifully appointed B&B, excellent breakfast and very helpful staff. Helped us arrange private wine tasting tour which was fabulous, saw some beautifully situated estates and did some over the top wine tastings. The prices are very reasonable here, not like any other place we have visited before.

Room Tip: We had a room looking out onto the garden which also gives you a very good view of the surrounding m...

We stayed in Gable Manor for two nights 1 & 2 May 2012 having read reviews on Trip.We were not disappointed, the Manager ( sorry have forgotten his name) and Thelma were so helpful.
The house and our accommodation was spotless!!! The breakfast was to-die-for, even the home made jams!!
We did not get to use the pool or the wonderful pool/guest lounge due to the time of year. I can only imagine how lovely it would be in the summer.
Great location for the wine valley, shops and restaurants.

In April, we stayed at Gable manor for the fourth time. As we feel very comfortable there, the entire staff is very friendly and helpful, we have already booked our next stay for January 2013.
We love the breakfast and highly appreciate that we always had enough towels.

Looking forward to 2013 and our next stay at Gable Manor

This year 's our 7th annual stay with expert hosts Marlyn and Don. Pretty unique as us tourists go - and a rare subject to be able to review about. So, why Gable Manor each visit? And what's been the differentiator that brings us back to this 'rated' guest house each year? Well, for us it's been the Gable Manor people. The folk who have consistantly served and supported our stay and comfort - or organised our day, or chosen our dinning - as only in-the-know smart locals can do. The folk who you can trust to have quickly and efficiently sorted out those unforseen problems and mishaps that we visitors invariably have - and that if not sorted can be so critcal to our continued holiday happiness and peace-of- mind. Admittedly you don't get to see much of these people short of booking in/out and at breakfast times. You might well add why should you? Yet for us (and many others I've observed), they're the folk who are always around, ready and willing to help. And my goodness they are good at it! For us it's always so reasuring to know that one's stay, satisfaction and accommodation in beautiful Franschhoek and district is held in Gable Manor's good hands. Because chances are, we'll be back again next year!

We had a four night stay at Gable Manor from 20-23 JAN 2012 and it was absolutely fabulous to say the least. There were six of us and If you are looking for somewhere that is centrally located with in walking distance to the high street; somewhere you can wind down and relax that has customer service focused staff then look no further. We stayed there whilst the owner was on vacation and we were left in the very capable hands of Garth - incredibly welcoming, attentive and nothing is too much trouble; he did everything possible to ensure our stay was the most fun and comfortable, ie all our hand picked restaurants had been booked well in advance to enure our reservations; our driver Jacquin was recommended by Don the owner and what a gentleman Jacquin is and again the wisest choice and value for money when touring all the wineries. Jacquin was so knowledgeable and informative. Then we have the lovely Thelma and Sylvia who constantly attend to every wish and again nothing was too difficult From making up our rooms every day, their presence so subtle and unintrusive; the rooms so fresh, clean, cosy and very comfortable; the breakfast display and area by the pool so peaceful and tranquil and the food so fresh with such variety on offer with the option to order something that may not be on display. The pool area is really lovely with an honesty bar and super chilled quality white wines. The only problem - our stay wasn't long enough. Next time we plan to stay at least 7 nights. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Love Bader & Carmel xo Thank you Gable Manor you are simply the best.

Hi Garth, Don, Marilyn & Staff
My wife and have just returned from nearly three weeks in SA, including two days in Franshoek at Gable Manor. Despite a bit of problem with the Town of Franshoek Water Department (no water supply one morning due to pump issues it seems), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gable Manor which exceed expectations.
This is a lovely B&B with well trained staff who seem to really care that you enjoy their establishment and the area. They are proactive (as in asking you about what dinner reservations they can make when you make your arrangements with them and also on arrival as it is often difficult to get in to many of the “name” eateries) and take the time to try to be sure your stay is enjoyable, which we really appreciated.
Thank you for making our last two days in SA wonderful!
