If you are looking for a cheap and friendly hotel in the Franschoek area, then the Simondium Country Lodge isn't too bad.
The welcome was great, the rooms a little tired but clean and comfortable, breakfast excellent, the bar quirky but very friendly - the location's not the best, but overall it's a good place to be for a couple of days; the remoteness of the place might make more than a couple of days a bit of a strain.
The only big negative, although from the nice letter in the rooms I am supposed to not comment on the peacocks, is the peacocks. Whilst they look stunning the 5am wake up call was really not needed.... I kind of need my sleep when I'm on holiday recharging, and they did my head in a bit (and the others with me too).
