We really enjoyed our stay.The reception was quick and friendly. The location is very central to all the wine farms. Everything was nice and clean, only the kitchenette area could do with some serious upgrading

I am glad that Madga enjoyed her stay and that she found that everything was nice and clean. Magda stayed in our budget studio, which has a small kitchenette (it has a hotplate, bar fridge and microwave and everything one needs for a cozy stay). I am sorry she found it inadequate as most of our visitors have been pleasantly...

Sunny Lane was comfortable and the host very helpful and pleasant. If you need your own get away having been on the wine trail all day, this is just the place. Quiet, clean, basic furnishing but everything you need. Nice small garden and a pool which was kept clean despite the high winds and leaves. Patio seemed to take the...

I loved this place, very conveniently located and very comfortable. A wonderful hostess and friendly kittys made it a memorable stay. Underfloor heating made it really pleasant in the cooler evenings and there is a pool for those hot summer days. I would highly recommend it.

Best hostess ever! Very accommodating. On my arrival it was rainy and cold but the underfloor heating was a true blessing and welcoming surprise! The room is very private and overlooks a beautiful enclosed pool area. Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood just a short walk to central town. Absolute value for money!

Excellent Studio flat for a visit to Franschoek. Close to all the wineroutes of Paarl, Franschoek and Stellenbosch. Also close to the wonderful Franschoek restaurants - make sure you book! I can recommend Sunny Lane if you're going to be spending most of your time tasting, sightseeing, eating and experiencing the area.

A lovely cosy place to stay in Franschoek! The underfloor heating is a real blessing in the cold winter nights. The bed is warm and very comfortable. Sunny Lane is within walking distance from restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay there again!

We stayed in the smaller studio and it was perfect for our needs! Barbara was very flexible with our arrival time and was happy for us to arrive early to dump our bags and collect keys before heading off on the Wine Tram. The room is more than adequate in size and comes with the added bonus of underfloor heating,...

Lovely stay at Sunny Lane. This was a winter getaway with our 3month old baby and we could not have enjoyed our stay more. Underfloor heating was spectacular and well needed. There were warm water bottles in the cupboards. Very close to all amenities in Franschhoek. Highly recommended to family and individual travelers.
