Franscheok is very very touristy and this is the prfect place to get away from the manicured tourism in town. The host is hugely useful and very helpful. The rooms are great and its a lovely place to stay,

I liked the chilled atmosphere and the proximity to the town of Franschoeck. One can enjoy the privacy in the basic rooms and can relax outside on the terrace with beautiful trees and can have a chat with other travellers. Enjoy.

The rooms were nice and private. Beautiful glass doors. Private bathrooms. There is no A/C, but you can open your windows. Literally walking distance to Mont Rochelle winery estate. And a pear orchard on site. We had a pear for breakfast each morning. Also, a short trail down to a creek.

There were 14 of us (all ladies) booked for 1 night's stay at Otter's Bend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and appreciated the 'Lodge-style' theme of the accommodation. The timber cabins are hidden among the trees, and access is by walking through a pear orchard. Very simple, small, yet comfortable and clean rooms. With fan for hot nights, or extra blankets for cold. The owners kindly agreed to arrange us a breakfast which turned out to be a feast - set in the communal lounge - that overlooked the orchard.

We had a very nice stay in Otter's Bend after our wine tasting. The rooms are cosy with a big terrace to be shared. Kitchen is fully equiped. The pool was in need of an extra cleaning though (leaves and dust).
