The Corner House Guest House
Best accommodation during our 3 week SA holiday
Me and my wife absolutely loved our stay at the corner house. Having finished our 3 weeks across SA this was our favourite place of our trip! Breakfast was just what we needed after long days drinking the Franschhoek wine :-). We were treated to an upgrade and the room and bathroom were spotless and bed was very comfortable.

Friendly in Franschhoek!
An excellent and very welcoming place to stay within easy walking distance of everything that Franschhoek has to offer. Superb breakfasts and very helpful host/staff. Good value and highly recommended, although you need to book well in advance.

Wonderful accommodations, food and service!
Wonderful from beginning to end! Very nice room and bath with complimentary items included. Wonderful full breakfast with options for all appetites. Management and staff are very capable and at your beck and call. Price very affordable and locale safe and close to eating and wine tram.

Flying visit
2 night stay here after a mini trip around SA. We had a little trouble getting into the property (apparently the bell to the side gate was not working) which wouldn’t have been a problem but the heavens decided to open at that point & we were a little damp when we finally got inside! The Corner House itself is lovely & looks recently refurbished. We were in room one which opened directly onto the veranda, again the rain spoilt our ability to use this but it would be beautiful in the summer. The bed was large & comfortable with gorgeous, soft Cotten sheets (there is also an electric blanket for when it’s chilly) & the bathroom was clean & shower powerful (still water restricted so short showers recommended). Breakfast was included & the selection was large for a small place & all home made, from Bircher muesli & muffins to eggs & bacon. Service was with a smile & staff were friendly and approachable. Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat.
