We stayed in delightful Appels cottage. It is well equipped, clean, private and very comfortable. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a double bed and 1 with 2 twin beds. If I was to change anything, it would be to offer the option of a double bed in the 2nd bedroom if 2 couples are accommodated in the cottage. It...

This guesthouse with exquisite mountain views is located in vineyards of the Franschhoek Valley. Accommodation is comfortable with all the modern conveniences although the room in which we stayed showed some signs of wear and tear, that could be easily dealt with. Ronel, the receptionist was friendly and helpful and recommended and booked restaurants for us during our stay.

Recommended to us by friends, the location is wonderful and we received a nice welcome. The Pinotage Room we'd booked for 2 nights had a lovely view and its own balcony. However the bathroom was very outdated - no hot water in the shower and the shower door hit the shower tap! (A plumber was booked). Basin is very low...

We spent a night here for our anniversary. On the whole we were happy, our welcome was friendly and the size and cleanliness of our room was good. What was missing was there was no bottled water, there was no rooibos tea, there was only one hand towel and the bath towels were tiny. I do think that guesthouses should...

The wonderful surrounding of the horse training grounds and the mountains as a backdrop give this place a great atmosphere. We wandered up to their lodge to enjoy the views from the gazebo which was very nice. The adventure of being in Africa was delivered by a power cut that meant we spent most of one evening lit by the...

Great location - away enough from town for tranquility but could walk into town and to some nice wineries easily and quickly. Breakfast was wonderful and abundant. Lovely spots to sit in the sun by the pool or in a nice shady spot by the pond. Great views. Upon arrival Ann and her staff arranged dinner reservations for the next...

We stayed for one night at the place, and though the views are breathtaking and feel like out of a post card, the rooms do need some taking care of and renovation. The decor is relatively old, we had a curtain holder detached from the wall, the television is very old and the coffee and tea is presented in a...

This guest house looks promising when you enter the driveway. The accommodation is dated and really tired, as was the bathroom. Nice view of horses next door and of the mountains. Breakfast was the same each day, bacon egg, sausage. No pastries, croissants or muffins, only toast. Town is a brisk 15 minute walk away.
