This was our second visit to TLW Franschhoek, having originally stayed there in Dec 2009. I did not do a TA entry on that occassion because I loved it so much that I did not want to share it with other people. I now realise how selfish this was and so will try to make amends with this entry.
We were originally booked in for 4 nights but due to problems with our Camps Bay acommodation we extended to 6 nights. The Last Words willingness to assist with our accommodation problems was outstanding and also included arranging 2 nights at TLW Constantia (see separate entry).
From the very first moment of arrival, Conrad and his team cannot do enough for you ensuring that you have a fantastic stay. Their advice on restaurants and sightseeing should not be ignored as they give such accurate information across all categories. The team are perfect hosts from the personally cooked breakfasts to the evening sun downers. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
A good example of this was that we had a puncture on our hire car and Franklin arranged for Ellis to change the wheel and take the punctured tyre to Paarl, collected a replacement, fitted it and charged us less than £20 for doing it. This could have messed up our whole day but the support they provided to us was first class.
We had a pool room which was a good size with big bathrooms and a lovely private patio for sun bathing and relaxing. The rooms are spacious and have lovely touches which I will not describe as they are great to discover for yourself.
Our latest stay at The Last Word was again a truly delightful experience. Conrad and Franklin are perfect hosts who make you feel very special in this small, truly boutique, hotel. If you like personal, intimate places to stay then I highly recommend the 'The Last Word' as you know that everything is special with outstanding service. If you like big corporate hotels this is not the place for you.
We will be back.
