We booked two rooms at the Frankilin View Guesthouse to attend a friend's wedding in Bloem. The booking site was simple to navigate and communication with staff was friendly and helpful. rooms were clean and spacious - especially the "honeymoon" room. Views were fantastic although this came at the expense of a very steep driveway which might prove daunting for some. Breakfast was also very good

We paid for our employee's first honeymoon evening at Franklin View. When they came back, their feedback was excellent, and they would recommend any time to any one. Breakfast was good and the rooms spacious and very elegant

Will recommend to all my colleagues, family and friends :)
The accommodation was great, the friendly service tip-top and the breakfast delicious.
Franklin View is situated in a quiet area and has a stunning view!

We enjoyed our first overnight stay at Franklin view so we went there a second time - what a difference. The service was poor as they were understaffed. not my problem. Won't fall for that trick again.

I am so sorry you had a bad experience.
We as guesthouse owners also need to take a break once in a while.
We then make use of locum managers who will manage the guesthouses for us while we are away.The manager is a very capable lady and is hands on.
She started that morning and unfortunately our staff ran late due taxi problems.
She was understaff when breakfast started.She did try her best to serve everybody in time.
This was out of her control and it can happen to anybody.
I hope this is pardonable
Regards

Immaculate accommodation with fully equipped rooms. The most personalised service from the warm and friendly hosts. Stunning views in a tranquil setting make this a truly comfortable and enjoyable experience. A must stay.
