The hotel describes itself as 'beyond boutique' - it is ideally situated on the main street, the rooms are top quality and spotless. The service is exemplary. The 'extras' such as drinks on arrival and a bedtime dessert set it apart. Stays include complimentary bar - self service in the lounge - as well as a minibar in the room....

Thank you for your lovely review of our property. Unfortunately we don't offer in-house suppers in Franschhoek, as many renowned restaurants are within walking distance - as you discovered! However, our lavish complimentary breakfasts are the talk of the town. We hope to see you in Franschhoek again soon. Warmest regards The Franschhoek team.

This was an all round excellent hotel. If you want to stay in Franscheok you could not do better. The staff were wonderful. Very friendly and more than helpful. The room was excellent and I can recommend the bacon and tomato omelette for breakfast.

Thank you for such a flattering review. We certainly are unique in the valley. Indeed, our omelettes are exceptional and we're sure you enjoyed the rest of the buffet as well. We'll see you again in the summer season. Kindest regards The Last Word Franschhoek.

A fantastic quiet little hotel in the heart of lovely Franshhoek. Extremely comfortable spacious rooms. We spent 4 nights here and it could not have suited us better. Super relaxed atmosphere with good attention to detail. The staff consisted of lovely smiling ladies and the extremely helpful manager Franklin. Easy and safe walking into town to all the scrumptious restaurants....

Very small and intimate hotel with only 10 rooms which means it is very peaceful and quiet. The driver Ellis is wonderful and very helpful, he is very knowledgeable of the local area. Loved our stay here and the mountains of Franschhoek - highly recommend the hike to Perdekop Peak!

Very welcoming, with a lovely personal touch. Luxurious room, great breakfast and nothing too much trouble - Conrad, Franklin and their team were marvellous. With fabulous views from the roof-top terrace, complimentary refreshments and secure parking, it far exceeded our expectations.
