Good 6,0
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.

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.
