We were a very short drive from several superb restaurants as well as the wine tour. Our rooms were comfortable even if we had one very cold night when the power in the whole town shut down for two hours in the middle of the evening. Breakfast is included in the price of the room even if it is not...

Good Day Krin Thank you for taking the time to review our Guest house, Basse Provence. I am very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Our team are dedicated to guest satisfaction and we work hard to achieve this. Load shedding seems to have become part of South Africa today I am afraid. Enjoy your Stoney Brook wine when...

We had two rooms on the upper floor of the main building. Our room was wonderful in all regards, other than the only shower facility was part of a claw foot tub that included a hand held shower head - no separate shower. We opted for using the wonderful bath/shower in the separate but private bathroom down the hall, included...

Given what was designated as the honeymoon suite. The bed was separated into twin beds for us. The room was upstairs directly under the thatch roof. As it is an old building there were extra supporting struts. The only way that I could get in out of my bed was via the end of the bed. This would have held...

Amazing views surround the property and they have a great wee swimming pool. Breakfast was great, continental and cooked breakfast available. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Would...

This is a fantastic B&B. The employees and manager were very pleasant and helpful, the setting stunning and the breakfasts were superb (especially the continental). As we were travelling with another couple, we stayed in the cottage, which was perfect. Although slightly outside town, it's a nice 30 min walk into town during the day, and a short taxi ride...

It is situated on the main road into Franschhoek, only a short drive from the main village. We were greeted by the lovely Janine who made us feel like old friends within minutes and showed us to our room in the...

An old Dutch colonial type building with separate cottages dotted round. We stayed in the main building, upstairs. I've never seen anything quite like it before. We were in the thatched roof area. It had recently been re thatched, if that is the correct term. There were loft beams around adding to the ambience. My husband is 6 feet tall...

A lovely little guest house. Our room had an entrance of its own and was delightful and very spacious. The staff were helpful and went out of their way booking cabs and making dinner reservations. Sherry and port were made available in the lounge and made a wonderful pre dinner apéritif. The guesthouse is 3km outside of Franschhoek and a...
