There are few places in the world like the Franschoek Valley. We came down for a family wedding and on arrival realised exactly why people want to get married here. It is unreal. It feels like you've tucked yourself away in the 1800s for a weekend and staying at the Reeden lodge added so much to its beauty. To me,...

Reeden Lodge perfectly encapsulates the essence of what Franschhoek is. It's quiet and wonderfully private with beautiful views of the field and the mountains. The owners are always willing to help with anything you need such as things to do around town or just basic history of Franschhoek. The cottages were very clean and well maintained and the whole experience...

We stayed here with our three boys, ages 12, 9 and 9 for three nights. Henry, the owner, is a gem and a wealth of information. The cottage we stayed in was good, but a bit tired. Some of the dinnerware needed to be washed before use, but that seems par for the course in all self-catering places we've stayed....

After a tour through western Cape where we went from nice and neat to very enjoyable cottages, we made a stopover in Reeden lodge. What a deception ! It is run down and also dirty. We had to clean all the dishes and scrap the pans of previous bacon before cooking. despite of its ages the fridge keeps on working,...

Reeden Lodge is a special spot. The cottages are spacious, self catering units with great views. My kids loved the farm animals, open field and swimming pool. If your expecting 5 star accommodations this is not a spot for you. It's a 5 star for location, 5 stars for views and hospitality. Do not stay here expecting brand new facilities...

We stayed over at Reeden Lodge for just one night, and weren't disappointed. I see from other reviews that some complain about the need for some upgrades to the place... I can see why but at the same time, it's far from run-down. I think our cottage was the Holly Tree, it was quite alright and nothing to really complain...

A bit disappointed on arrival as Willow Tree cottage is a bit run down. But after a while we got over this as the open yard plus big pool proved a winner in the hot Dec weather. Henry the owner is very helpful and installed a new fridge overnight when we had problems. The cottage is serviced on a daily...

Having stayed in several very nice guest houses and hotels during our month in Southern Africa we were mildly disappointed with our first impression of our cottage; that said this was a very different price to what we had been paying so not a fair comparison. We only stayed two nights and by the time we left (two couples) we...

We stayed at Reeden Lodge in late February at a so called Riverside Cottage. On this website ( http://www.franschhoek.co.za/reedenlodge/ ) it said that the cottage had "A lovely verandah overlooking vineyards and small dam, on the riverside of the property." When I contacted the owner on the phone before booking the cottage, he said that the cottage had been recently...

The view of the mountains from here are superb and a good base to explore the Franshhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch areas. We stayed in Holly Tree Cottage, one double and twin en-suite rooms. The self catering semi-detached house was clean and spacious with comfortable beds. A good size dinning table and and adequate kitchen area. The double bedroom's en-suite was...
