4/10 Fair

Booked this for friends of ours (a mature couple from the UK). They have travelled around the world and have stayed in all sorts of places. They said that the Stables was at a beautiful location but the service was not great, the room was ok but not 100% clean and the breakfast was very disappointing. They encouraged us not to use this venue for future guests.

rude owner, accommodation not as advertised or pro
I booked several months in advance ,and choose the Stables Lodge specifically as it was advertised as pet friendly, and we were attending a wedding in Franschoek late in the afternoon. One week before our stay the owner asked if we would ming giving up our room for another guest who was staying 2 nights and didn't want to have to move. I was more than happy to oblige. She then asked what time I was arriving and I emailed her back , late morning. My daughter and I arrived at 11.30, and were asked curtly by the owner why we were so early?? Then were informed that our room was NOT dog friendly and that she would gladly refund our money and we should seek alternate accommodation . Really ??? when we had to leave for our wedding at 3!!! Eventually my daughter and I persuaded her that it was way to late to seek other accommodation so late. We were shown to our room at the back of the house and told to stay in doors as there were 2 very vicious dogs that would attack my dog. This in 40 degree heat. We put our stuff down and were about to have rest before wedding when loud screaming children prevented us from doing so, while they splashed about in a pool right outside our door and which guests were not allowed to go. We showered , there was NO shampoo or body lotion .. only cheap soap which didn't even lather. When we returned from wedding our room backed a parking lot where drunk teenagers prevented us from sleep, and where this small outside room made weird noises all night etc etc

The hostess was wonderful as she took time to walk us around and explain how the property worked for us as guests. The location is super for safety since it's in a nice neighborhood and close to rural areas.

We just needed to overnight in order to attend a wedding & we experienced friendliness from the owner & staff. The room was comfortable & clean & we would stay there again if the need arose. We wanted to stay outside the town centre & this was peaceful & quiet.

Welcoming home for any type of visitor
Easy to find, safe secure parking, friendly owners, would have liked milk every day for coffee in our room not just as a welcome on day one and a little more hot water in the shower...Beds were super comfortable and we were nice and warm
