Not bad but not great either
Excellent service by host. Parking available for a car or 2. Room clean and comfortable however was very cold. This ruined my stay. Needed extra heater. Used aircon to get some warmth. Shower was good. Main disappointment was not refunded for part of stay as had to leave 2 days early.

A little gem
We stayed here for 3 nights 17-19 March. It was amazing. Our host kept us smiling with his great sense of humour and charm. In spite of the worrying times he always made sure we were comfortable and brought us champagne while we relaxed pool side. The accommodation itself was spacious beautifully decorated and cleaned meticulously. At breakfast we were served fruit and the option of cooked food too which was very tasty. Very friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you for making it such a lovely part of our holiday. In terms of location it's walking distance to the main road with plenty art galleries and eateries to explore.

There are nicer places to stay in Franschhoek. We were given no notification of loadshedding times, we arrived home from the wine tram to complete darkness and one candle in the room. We requested more and were given ONE more candle to light the entire room and bathroom. There was no water in the fridge when we arrived. A soap dish, without soap. Handsoap and shower gels were bolted into the wall. Two ply toilet paper on the roll, but single sheet for the roll - it just felt like they were cutting corners wherever possible. Breakfast on the 2nd day was half the quantity of the first day "because of loadshedding" but that's no excuse.
