My wife and I just returned from a 9 night stay at this lovely hotel. This is our 3rd visit and we received a warm welcome back from Conrad, Franklin and the lovely ladies who keep the place spotless and running beautifully. They go about their daily routine quietly in the background. The ladies quickly learn names and guest preferences...

This little hotel exceeded our expectations by far! The service we received from Franklin from the moment we arrived was exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. All the little extras like milk tart and coffee on arrival, dessert and candles in our room at night, dinner reservations made for us is what made our stay extra special. The room,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Last Word. The property itself and the rooms are immaculate, and it's well positioned on the main road, in the heart of beautiful Franschoek. The staff, and their attention to detail, really make the experience special though. Would highly recommend!

What an little jewel in the heart of Franschhoeak. This 10-12 bedroom resort is to die for. Staff was so welcoming and service was impeccable. The room was beautiful, cozy with a charming modern twist to it. The location was perfect close to restaurants and nice vineyards. Price was affordable but don't expect it to stay that way for long...

The hotel describes itself as 'beyond boutique' - it is ideally situated on the main street, the rooms are top quality and spotless. The service is exemplary. The 'extras' such as drinks on arrival and a bedtime dessert set it apart. Stays include complimentary bar - self service in the lounge - as well as a minibar in the room....

Thank you for your lovely review of our property. Unfortunately we don't offer in-house suppers in Franschhoek, as many renowned restaurants are within walking distance - as you discovered! However, our lavish complimentary breakfasts are the talk of the town. We hope to see you in Franschhoek again soon. Warmest regards The Franschhoek team.

This was an all round excellent hotel. If you want to stay in Franscheok you could not do better. The staff were wonderful. Very friendly and more than helpful. The room was excellent and I can recommend the bacon and tomato omelette for breakfast.

A fantastic quiet little hotel in the heart of lovely Franshhoek. Extremely comfortable spacious rooms. We spent 4 nights here and it could not have suited us better. Super relaxed atmosphere with good attention to detail. The staff consisted of lovely smiling ladies and the extremely helpful manager Franklin.
