Best hostess ever! Very accommodating. On my arrival it was rainy and cold but the underfloor heating was a true blessing and welcoming surprise! The room is very private and overlooks a beautiful enclosed pool area. Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood just a short walk to central town. Absolute value for money!

Excellent Studio flat for a visit to Franschoek. Close to all the wineroutes of Paarl, Franschoek and Stellenbosch. Also close to the wonderful Franschoek restaurants - make sure you book! I can recommend Sunny Lane if you're going to be spending most of your time tasting, sightseeing, eating and experiencing the area.

A lovely cosy place to stay in Franschoek! The underfloor heating is a real blessing in the cold winter nights. The bed is warm and very comfortable. Sunny Lane is within walking distance from restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay there again!

We stayed in the smaller studio and it was perfect for our needs! Barbara was very flexible with our arrival time and was happy for us to arrive early to dump our bags and collect keys before heading off on the Wine Tram. The room is more than adequate in size and comes with the added bonus of underfloor heating,...

Lovely stay at Sunny Lane. This was a winter getaway with our 3month old baby and we could not have enjoyed our stay more. Underfloor heating was spectacular and well needed. There were warm water bottles in the cupboards. Very close to all amenities in Franschhoek. Highly recommended to family and individual travelers.

Very spacious and comfortable accommodation. Conveniently located in one of the most beautiful towns and wine regions in the world. We had a wonderful time, enjoying the hospitality at the restuarants and vineyards as well as visiting the motor museum No service in the units over the weekend.

Located in the heart of franschoek, very close to main road. We got the budget studio and it was more than enough for us. The owner met us on arrival and gave us the brief of everything that we needed to know. The studio is bigger than your average hotel room plus it has a small fridge and some utilities...

Thanks so much for the great review of our budget studio. I am glad that the studio was more than enough for you and that you enjoyed sitting outside on the patio!

Room is nice and cosy. Small kitchen makes it able to prepare own meals. The cats of the owner come to viset a lot, but leave when you tell them. Room is close enough to the city centre so you can walk there.
