“Pleasantly surprised!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We had an amazing weekend in Franschoek at the Lavender Farm Guest. Having read some of the previous reviews I was slightly apprehensive but having visited myself for the first time I thought it was great and was pleasantly surprised. I would recommend the accommodation to anyone that wants a quiet piece of paradise tucked away from the hub bub of the town. I must say the breakfast was also a great bonus. I would definitely visit again!!!

This past weekend I was treated to a weekend away at Lavender Farm. Located just on the outskirts of the main part of town, its close enough to town, but far enough to be in the quiet countryside.
The rooms are all brand new, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Percale sheets on a very comfortable bed, good heating, although the air con could have been a little quieter, and a great shower! O, there is also DSTV with just a few channels, but goodness, one is not escaping to watch TV are we now?
Breakfast was simple, but sufficient, and the staff friendly and helpful.
Just wish it could have been warm enough to make use of the pool and the loungers!
Thanks! We'll be back.

Room Tip: try and book one of the four facing the lavender fields. Unfortunately those were already booked, bu...

The tv was not working in the room, we had to call a manager to fix and it would have been nice to have fresh mushrooms at breakfast. Some of the rooms need maintenance ie water proofing and door frames that were damaged.

This is the second time I have stayed a weekend at Lavender Farm Guest House. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found the staff and services to be very efficient. The only gripe I may have is that I was given one of the luxury suites as requested and the separate suite next door was also occupied. The walls seemed paper-thin as one was clearly able to distinguish the voices talking next door, sometimes loudly until the early hours of the morning. Overall I love this place and would recommend it to friends and family. A wonderfully relaxing place to getaway from the humdrum of city life in winter, and Im sure its just as wonderful to stay at during the summer!

We had the most amazing weekend in Franschoek last weekend, despite the rain. The guest house was warm, service was very friendly and accommodating and rooms are fabulous! We will most definitely return to stay at Lavender Farm Guest House when returning to Franschoek.

If rest and relaxtion in a luxury environment is what you're looking for, look no further! Lavender Farm Guest House is a stunning place to chill out and be spoilt. The staff are a pleasure to deal with.
