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...

Great place to use as a base to explore the fabulous food and wine in Franschhoek Valley. The cottages are in a beautiful setting with fabulous views, safe for children to run free. Hosts friendly and helpful

We stayed at Reeden Lodge for a week. It is about 10 minutes walk from the main street where the restaurants and shops are located. The view of the mountains from here is wonderful. The cottage we had was adequate but could have done with air conditioning, a larger bed and fridge as it is a self catering experience. The...

We had Moonrise cottage which is more spacious than it looks on the internet with a well equiped kitchen/lounge and seperate bedroom, set in gardens. I room seemd to be recently decorated with a very comfortable bed. On the down side the bathroom door only half opens due to the position of the sink & there is cat food left...

It seems that the quality of a stay here is greatly influenced by the cottage you end up in. We stayed in the moonrise cottage and booked into Reeden after reading mainly positive reviews. It appears that the friendly owners had forgotten to actually book a unit for us and consequently we may have been given this cottage without it...

The setting of the cottages at Reeden Lodge is lovely. However since our last visit we got the feeling that little had been done to improve facilities. The bungalow we had this time was in need of redecoration and the upholstery was stained. The shower and bathroom facilities were on a poor standard. There was no WIFI which is surprising...

This is the best value for money I have come across in Franschhoek, and since I am from Cape Town, we visit the town quite often. We had a group of 8 that all wanted to stay together, and Reeden Lodge offered the perfect option in the Willow Tree cottage. This is not a 5 star experience, but it is...
