          This was the worst hotel we stayed at in our time in SA super expensive compared to other places we stayed. Average breakfast, run down room and not a very warm welcome at all. Good location though but I wouldn't recommend it

          A wonderful conveniently situated place to stay. Super friendly staff and a great breakfast. The one bed was really unconfortable( needs a new mattress) but all the rest of the stay was absolutely perfect. Thank you.

          The most magnificent stay. Fantastic location and breathtaking views. It's one of the most amazing stays. The quiet surroundings are food for the soul. Walking distance from the centre of Franschhoek.
