“Great place even better value”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

A super little place..peace and quiet....easy walks start yard from front door....Fransel has a warm welcoming smile and makes some great coffee. Made a lovely fire one chilly evening in the main dining room. My room had a good hot shower just right after a long day out walking or coming in off the beach. Its great value for money.....comfy and clean and I would have no hesitation in booking again. Easy to find and Kleindmont/Roi Ells short car journey away.
Well done Fransel

Room Tip: I had room with own entrance door(i.e)didn,t have to use main door facing Mountain.

The Trailhouse is excellent value for money.Comfortable, clean rooms with a lovely view from every room. Fransel is a great hostess and very helpful with advice when you ask her. The mountain walks and fynbos are to die for and the garden has a lovely braai area that guests are allowed to use. The dining room is great as you have facilities to warm up a take away or sit and read. Thanks for a great visit.

Room Tip: It is a great place if you like bird watching, nature walks, lovely views and hospitality. Expect gr...

Just as stunning as the view to the Atlantic Coast is Fransel's WELCOMING HOSPITALITY. A great down to earth place to stay she offers and her warm personality makes you feel at home in an instant. Fransel's lovely B&B is on the slope of the mountains, just at the beginning of Rod's trail, an easy walk with breathtaking views over the Atlantic, leading to the botanical gardens where awaits you more very promising hikes, including one climbing to large WATERFALLS. So don't believe the Rough Guide calling Betty's Bay unattractive!!! It's PENGUIN COLONY at Stony Point is larger then the one at Boulders, and surely the rocks and Atlantic Ocean give it a dramatic backdrop, not to mention that the place lacks the hordes of tourists, giving it a much more natural feeling. Returning to Fransels she loves to hear about your adventures, reacting with her great humor. I guess bringing kids and pets are no problem since she has both. Fransel, thnx for your TLC and the great time we spent at your place!

Room Tip: Any room is more than sufficient, large and clean, but don't expect posh luxory, it is called Tr...
