I recently visited the Ivy Luxury Apartments and it exceeded my expectations. I stayed in apartment number 5 and I was blown away by the beauty and warmth - truly luxury at its best with the high ceilings and exquisite interior. There was chocolate on our beds and wine in the refrigerator - the unique touches which we will remember....

These apartments were amazing, very spacious, immaculately decorated and very clean. The staff who were looking after us were so friendly and helpful. These apartments were in the perfect location and close by to all the great restaurants around the area.

These apartments are centrally located between most shops and restuarants. Most restuarants, coffee shops and pubs are within walking distances. Secure parking is provided but bays are quite small for larger vehicles. Staff are always very friendly and helpful, thats why I've been there on two occasions.

What a pleasant surprise! Expected the usual, bare impersonal self catering apartment, only to find a beautifully warm inviting home from home. The Penthouse furnished to exceptional standards, valuable original artworks, fresh white Orchid. The linen is of the highest quality thread count, and a luxurious plush mattress topper too. It was 38deg on arrival, so imagine our surprise to...

The apartment is very modern, perfect for a family of four. The place is well located and very clean. The staff member Wellington was extremely helpful and friendly. It's a venue which we would most certainly rebook.

The apartments are spacious and the staff (especially Wellington) were extremely helpful. The location is within Franschhoek within walking distance of everything in town. To visit the surrounding area/vineyards, one can take the wine train, rent bikes, or drive. Fabulous!

We stayed at The Ivy for two nights and loved the apartment, we had the Penthouse and it felt beautifully luxurious. A welcome bottle of wine and the AMAZING service by Wellington was really appreciated.

We spent two nights here, and wished we could stay more. We were greeted by a lovely employee who looked after us. We asked for two twins but unfortunately this wasn't available so he brought another single bed to our apartment. The apartment was of high quality, modern and with all the appliances needed. It's in a central location close...
