“watch out with booking on booking.com.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

When you book a luxury suite on booking.com you have to look careful at your reservation confirmation. We booked a luxury suite and were automatically placed in the red room wich is one of the oldfashioned rooms in the guesthouse that differ a lot from the larger, way more comfortable newer rooms. Al the old rooms have a "color" tag, the newer rooms have a number.
The new rooms are beautiful and comfortable.
The surroundings of the guesthouse are beautiful.
Don is a very friendly manager.
This is the only guesthouse we visited with no drinks in the fridge in the room and no possibility to order one (this part is self service).
The breakfast is good, but very ordinary compared to what you get in other guesthouses.
although we had to change rooms twice in 4 days we had a pleasant stay in lavender farm.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

+ private rooms
+ clean, modern, and spacious

- short drive to restaurants and vineyards (problematic when you both want to enjoy a few drinks!)

The rooms are very spread out around the garden and pool which makes it feel as if you're in your own apartment. Our room was very spacious with two sitting areas. It's located very close to the shops and restaurants in the town of Franschhoek, but its just far enough that you will probably need to drive, which may be a drawback if you want to indulge in the amazing wines of the region.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lavender field have the best views and most privacy.

Very beautiful place to stay in Franschhoek - well designed rooms, nice view on garden with lavender field. Most of all you can have a chat with Don - the manager of the guesthouse - who can tell you great stories about life.
We would definitely stay there again.

Spent the evening of my birthday at Lavender Farm and we had an amazing exprience. The room, the view and the service was all excellent. Perfect way to end off my birthday and i would recommend Lavender farm for anyone looking fro a break away from the rat race.

Kind regards

It does not feel that we are only an hour away from the city, Franschhoek really is a great place to get away for the weekend. We were recommended Lavendar Guest Farm by friends that had stayed there recently, and they were right it was a wonderful romantic place to spend the weekend, the view of the lavendar field and mountains from our room was really beautiful. The farmer manager Don was very helpful and really made us feel at home. He gave us some great info on what to do in Franschhoek and recommended a couple of great restaurants as the choice is overwhelming. I enjoyed the wide screen TV and Aircon in the rooms - felt very 5 Star. Overall we highly recommend Lavender guest farm.
Thanks Don we will be back
Regards,
Mark and Janine

Room Tip: There were about 10 rooms to choose from and all of them seem to have great views.

What a lovely weekend away - Thanks to Don and his staff, you really made our weekend away in Franschhoek exceptional. When you upgraded us to the honeymoon suite that made us feel extra special - thanks Don.
The room was nice and warm, cozy and beautifully decorated. The view of the Lavender outside our room reminded us of our trip to Provence and the mushroom Omlette for breakfast was very yummy.
Don recommend 2 restaurants La Petite Ferme for lunch and Ryan's Kitchen for dinner they were both fantastic. The wine tasting at Haute Espoir ( try the Gentle Giant ) and Boekenhoutskloof was alot of fun. Our overall stay in Franschhoek was great 5 stars. We will be back when it warms up a bit.
All the best Don
Warm Regards Soledad & Chris

Sadly only a 1 night stay, but a memorable, comfortable and great stay. Lovely large suite, beautiful view over lavender fields. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, warm bedding and aircon to take edge off cold ( was very cold and wet Saturday ) Breakfast a little lacking though - was hoping for more in cold buffet - variety of cheese / muffins / croissants perhaps, but what was available was fresh. Will be back, in hopefully better weather and a longer stay. Pool area and outdoor seating area under moss covered cork tree with fairy lights and lanterns looks magical for summer evenings!
