The guest house was very comfortable and the service good, It was also very accessible to the town and was ideal to relax in at the end of the day. The rooms and bathrooms were well provided for and after hours service was available in the form of an honesty bar.

Beautiful accommodation in Franschhoek. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel at home and their attention to detail doesn't go unnoticed. The breakfast is top class and caters for each guest individually. Would love to stay here again.

Very comfortable accommodation. Owner, Jeanne, is super lovely. Delicious breakfast! Aircon and heaters in the room, satellite TV in the bedroom, large bathroom. Swimming pool. Situated just 1km away from the high street/ main road in Franschhoek. Much quieter here than closer to the main road. Love to come back.

The owners, Mr & Mrs Garlick are perfect hosts, very friendly and obliging with a wealth of knowledge of the area. The guesthouse was always immaculately clean, breakfast was substantial and...
