A short drive from Cape Town International and greeted by very friendly hosts. The area is very safe and the guest house is a short drive from the Mall. The room was highly appointed and very comfortable. The hosts paid a lot of attention to detail which reflects in the quality of guest house. The breakfast was very healthy and good quality. Would return with the whole family if I get a chance. One of the best guest houses I have stayed in (there have been many).

"Amazing hotel/guesthouse-would recommend to anyone"
Booked with Summerwood last minute (6pm on check-in day) on Expedia and got a great deal. Everything was great - grounds, safety, staff, other guests. The guesthouse has an honor code for snacks/wine/beer/etc, in which you pay at the end of your stay that was very reasonably priced compared to places we've stayed at in the past. We had a car rental, so we drove for a late dinner/drinks (9pm) into town, which was very close. Could not have asked for a better stay in Stellenbosch or a better experience here.

"Great location. Shame about the lack of a fridge"
The location is a few minutes walk from the centre of Franschhoek. You can go out of the garden gate and just cross the road and into the rear entrance of Reuban's restaurant, it's that close to the centre but so peaceful.
The ambiance is first class and furnished with antiques. The breakfasts are very good and sitting on the terrace overlooking the beautiful garden is idyllic.
Our only complaints are:
1. No rooms are supplied with fridges.
2. Our room had the dressing table in the bathroom but no power point for a hair dryer. Also the mirror over the dressing table was too high. The bedroom was large and there was plenty of room to accommodate the dressing table in the bedroom.
Why do hotel owners not actually sleep in their rooms sometime to find our the problems rather than leave this to their guests.i
