We stayed three nights at The Garden House, and it simply wasn't long enough. We were warmly welcomed by Annette and the dogs and cats to this beautiful tranquil haven. The accommodation is a spacious, comfortable cottage separate from the main house with a large bathroom. A very generous, fresh and tasty continental breakfast is served on the stoop of...

We stayed in October2015, so this is a very late review, but deserves a review none the less. The hospitality was great, the breakfast was great and the room was even better. And the animals live a life of luxury too :) Highly recommend!

We stayed 2 nights in the beautiful cottage here. It was as fantastic as all the other reviews say it is. Amazing views, fabulous breakfast, gorgeous pool, great advice, free car rides, fascinating company, warm welcome and a lethal gin and tonic! Would visit again - wouldn't dare stay anywhere else!! Must like dogs and cats!!

We stayed with Annette and Barry at the Garden House for five delightful nights. It was heavenly. We were greeted as old friends. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was a marvellous addition and long lazy afternoons under the sun shades delightful. If you had six stars we would rate...

Annette and Barry have created a very special B&B in Franschhoek. Quiet with beautiful gardens and a lovely pool with wonderful views over the mountains. Breakfast is a real treat served on the terrace and with only two rooms the whole place is very intimate whilst also being great fun. Annette herself is quite unique and will always tell you...

This is fun here. Annette and Barry are proper hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms in the garden are comfortable and lack nothing. The pool is silky warm but refreshing and Annette brought us ice creams whilst lolling in it. No extras are charged for - not the gin on the stoep (veranda), not the clothes washing, nor...

This is our 5th stay at the Garden House - we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Nothing is too much trouble for Annette and Barry. Restaurant reservations, advice,a plaster for the cut on my finger and paracetamol for my headache! The room is spacious and peaceful, the lovely pool in the beautiful garden, and the delicious breakfast make this a place...

Just spent a lovely few days at the Garden House - our second visit. Annette and Barry are wonderful hosts. After a day out around the vineyards, it's great to return and chill out by the pool, then a sundowner and chat on the stoepe, where the view is stunning. Outstanding room and great breakfast! Location of house ideal for...

Annette & Barry welcomed us at the Garden House where we stayed for 2 nights on our way to Cape Town. They are a lovely couple, and they gave us all the right advice that made every minute in Franschoek enjoyable. Annette went out of her way to help us with restaurant and excursion reservations too. The room was very...
