This was our second visit to the property and we were so well looked after in every way. We had a great room overlooking the vines and mountains. The room was so beautifully presented and very comfortable with a great new en suite. Since our last visit there have been some great improvements to the rooms and best of all...

It has everything you need!! Amazing view, lovely atmosphere, nice and helpful owners, very pleasant rooms with a comfortable bed, very good breakfast and an excellent cost benefit. It is located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch which makes it a very good base to explore both regions. Its nice to have a car but you can use uber everywhere.

I really loved my stay at Klein Waterval. Having been greeted by the friendly and energetic Greg when I arrived, I was taken to my room and immediately started to decompress. The setting is lovely, my room clean, simple and well-appointed. Breakfast was very good, and the whole experience was super friendly. I'll be back!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and spacious rooms. For my stay would have liked a bar fridge, needed to keep cycling water bottles chilled for racing the next day. Staff helped out on the morning with ice cubes.
