We stayed in this small boutique guest house whilst visiting the wine region. Great location just a few mins walk from the shops and restaurants. We had a lovely garden room, very spacious and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

We have stayed a number of times at the Avondrood after attending various events in Franschhoek and have always had a most enjoyable experience. The guest house is an oasis.

The guesthouse is nicely situated in Franschhoek just a few mins walk from shops, art galleries, restaurants and of course the vineyards. Justin is a very warm host as was Courtney. They couldn't do enough to ensure you enjoyed your stay.

This boutique hotel was beautiful! Located in the heart of Franschhoek, but yet the lush gardens made you feel as if you were in the country-side. Previous to our arrival, I would email all our hotels with questions about where to eat, what to do, in ALL our stays. Justin was always the first one to respond. Always so hospitable....

The manager (Justin) was an incredibly gracious host, along with the rest of the staff. Well appointed and enormous room overlooking the gardens which had a wonderful lavender aroma throughout the day. Just a few minutes walk to great restaurants and cafes. An absolute treat for us. THANK YOU!!!

Unfortunately i stayed for just one night, but the room and bathroom were very good and particularly enjoyed the quiet garden. Had a lovely buffet breakfast in the morning. Justin and staff are very welcoming. hope to be back again soon

Rented both the suite and a deluxe room for only one night. Nicely decorated, very central, clean and renovated, staff and owner very helpful in setting up reservations. Good breakfast, safe parking and wish we had more time to stay another night. However a bit on the expensive side.
