Nice, but not worth the price
We stayed one night, in high season. The room was small, but fine. The bathroom was tiny; it was so small, we had to turn sideways to pass between the shower and the vanity (and we're skinny!). The manager was outstanding, and very customer-focused. The breakfast was fine. It was very nice to sit by a small stream while we ate breakfast. My biggest issue is value. I just didn't see any reason why the price was so high (around R 3200 per night). To me, given the location, and the setting, the price was at least 50% higher than it should be.

Well located, close to the centre of Franschhoek and a number of the key wine farms and places of interest the accommodation was comfortable and the views across the vines to the mountains spectacular. A great base for exploring the region. We could not have been made more welcome. Danika, in particular, put herself out to be of assistance. Breakfast was great.

Fabulous little hotel
Fantastic little hotel, the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful if they tried. A little way out of the centre of Franschoek, about 10 kms but well worth the journey in for dinner each night.
