This boutique hotel was beautiful! Located in the heart of Franschhoek, but yet the lush gardens made you feel as if you were in the country-side. Previous to our arrival, I would email all our hotels with questions about where to eat, what to do, in ALL our stays. Justin was always the first one to respond. Always so hospitable....

The manager (Justin) was an incredibly gracious host, along with the rest of the staff. Well appointed and enormous room overlooking the gardens which had a wonderful lavender aroma throughout the day. Just a few minutes walk to great restaurants and cafes. An absolute treat for us. THANK YOU!!!

Unfortunately i stayed for just one night, but the room and bathroom were very good and particularly enjoyed the quiet garden. Had a lovely buffet breakfast in the morning. Justin and staff are very welcoming. hope to be back again soon

Rented both the suite and a deluxe room for only one night. Nicely decorated, very central, clean and renovated, staff and owner very helpful in setting up reservations. Good breakfast, safe parking and wish we had more time to stay another night. However a bit on the expensive side.

Year after year we come back for our annual break as Justin and team have the perfect touch to make you feel welcome. Avenrood is perfectly located in town for you to walk anywhere while creating a feeling of seclusion to relax in peace after a day filled with wine tasting, lunching and other activities.

......since this is such a hidden treasure! Small 8 room..."guesthouse" but actually it turned out to be one of our best stays ever! Service is remarkable and the staff is the icing on the cake. Helpfull and always happy to reach out to you! We understand why they are fully booked often but were lucky to find a small gap....

We have stayed with Justin at Avondrood a few times and always look forward to returning. From the minute you are greeted at the door, to the lovely rooms, excellent breakfast and the guidance with where to go. Justin has a massive knowledge of the wine lands so can suggest somewhere to suit everyone. He is keen to book restaurants...

What a beautiful property. From the moment Justin greeted us we were made so welcome and escorted to one of the wonderful rooms. Justin could not have been more helpful and booked tables for us at a couple of superb restaurants during our 2 night stay. Our only regret is that we weren't staying longer. We were doing the Garden...
