We had a really lovely stay at Avondrood and were so well looked after by Justin, Anna and Courtney who work so hard to ensure everyone is looked after and happy.

I've stayed in some different locations over many years but this is absolute the best. Great service from very friendly and helpful staff. Justin and his team make a super job, starting with great breakfeast, assistance for activities or even in the well equipped bar.

2nd visit to Avondrood and quality levels still high. Justin and team are very helpful without being overbearing. Breakfast was a treat very relaxed and comfortable. Pool area is quiet and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. We will be back.

Avondrood is a wonderful guesthouse with real character and charm. It was a peaceful, tranquil setting, but in a great location just off the main street. Setting foot inside its doors was like entering a secret oasis of calm, with tasteful decor, a beautiful garden and stylish rooms.

Avondrood is well located, just off the Main Street so it is quiet, yet the many restaurants and stores are a short walk away. The bed/sitting room and the bathroom are spacious, with furnishings that reflect Justin's commitment to quality and care. Breakfast is served in the courtyard, with both cold and hot choices - both are delicious. The courtyard...

Could not have been happier with Avondrood. We moved there from another b&b in franschoek and the difference was remarkable. The hosts were incredibly welcoming; the breakfast delicious; and the room and grounds beautiful. I would not consider staying anywhere different next time I am in the area!!!

Arrived exhausted after a trying day of travel. Justin welcomed us and showed us to our spacious "suite", our home for the next 36 hours. Breakfast the next morning was in the garden and was so very tasty and generous. Our hosts directed us to all the pleasures available in Franchhoek, and with their help throughout our stay we were...

“Our room was closest to communal area so felt less private. Definitely recommend taking room on far side of garden to avoid this.”
