We stayed with Annette and Barry during our Honeymoon in March 2017. To summarise - it was fantastic! Lovely house, stunning views, great food and wonderful hosts. Annette was very helpful when it came to fitting in our booking and equally so when we asked for information about the area prior to our arrival. We were warmly greeted and invited...

Our umpteenth trip to the Garden House which we love so much. And on both arrival and departure we also crossed over with guests who had returned many times. Really, what else do you need to know? It always works its magic. And apart from the warm welcome, the delight of Annette and Barry, the huge room, friendly menagerie and...

This cosy little guest house offered us a pleasant stay for two nights. Close to down town but at the end of a small road. The friendlyness of the owners Anette and Berry is unsurpassed, also their breakfast on the terrasse. The property is home of beautiful gardening and a nice pool . Only one room in the main house...

This was our second visit to Franschhoek to stay with Annette and Barry in the Garden House. The combination of the perfect location in the town, beautiful garden, pool with stunning views and the warm, fun conversation make this a unique place! Last time we only managed 3 nights and this time we doubled it and I still wished we...

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...
