What a beautiful well appointed guest house in the heart of Franschoek. Walk to restaurants and tourist spots. Rooms are well decorated and bathrooms stunning. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the town. Breakfast was an absolute delight with fresh well presented food.

Room Tip: Lovely garden rooms facing the pool

Stopped in Franshoek for a late lunch and decided to stay the night. Without any reservations the coach house was very accommodating and took our reservation on late notice. They even welcomed us with a glass of red. Well looked after, nice rooms and friendly efficient service. Can recommend this place for a good night stay.

We just stayed 1 night at the Coach House but it was lovely depsite a few hiccups. Sharon is a warm host & we had a pleasant stay. All the rooms are well appointed & the breakfast was delicious, Sharon even went out of her way to buy vegetarian sausages for us!

Room Tip: I had a room in the house which I think was a bit warmer than 1 outside.

We stayed 2 nights in June (cold & rainy) and Sharon ensured we walked into lovely warm bedrooms: Garden Room 1 (Sharon arranged twin beds in this room for Grandfather & Grandson) and Garden Room 2 (Queen for my husband & myself). Each of these have a lovely little private patio with table and chairs looking onto the garden. Although there are renovations under way, Sharon ensured these impacted as little as possible on her guests. She is so friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much trouble for her. Thank you Sharon for a lovely stay - we'll be back!

Room Tip: Garden Room 1 has heated towel rails and a nicer bathroom than Garden Room 2. Both have a lovely pr...

Best location in Franschhoek--walking distance to all in-town restaurants. Sharon and Charlie are great and gracious hosts and we bonded with them immediately, despite showing up without any reservations. Their recommendations for restaurants and things to do were 'spot on'.

The room was quiet,large and nicely furnished with a very comfortable king sized bed. It had its own patio seating area overlooking the garden. The wi-fi worked in the room.

Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

For value and overall experience for the money, this was the best in our multi-day Garden Route trip!

The location of this guesthouse is great. Just off the main street, at the monument end of town. A short walk to everything you need. The owners Sharon and Charles are very friendly and made sure our stay was comfortable. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A great base to visit the vineyards.
We had a couple of small niggles...They are currently working on the garage which means that there is building noise from 9am and it's a bit of a mess outside. The work interferred with the tv signal, so we had no tv during our stay. We also came back to no power one evening as a trip had flipped, but the owners were home and able to sort for us.
It would have been nice to have been told about the building work, but this would'nt stop me recommending or returning.

After much research on accommodation in Franschhoek, we chose The Coach House. What a delightful, small guest house. We booked directly and selected a garden room with a king size bed and wonderful linens. The room is comfortable, not cramped, and contains two comfy chairs and a table plus dressing table and armoire with a flat screen above. Everything is very clean. The bathroom is modern with lots of hot water. The A/C works incredibly well - thank goodness as it was hot. Additional TV channels would be a bonus as the selection is very limited. The wi fi works well. Breakfast is a table of yogurt, huge fluffy croissants, cereals and fruit. The coffee is French pressed and followed by a cooked to order egg breakfast (best bacon and eggs of the trip). The value of The Coach House in Franschhoek cannot be understated and we would return in a heartbeat. The real gem is the hostess, Sharon. She is charming, warm, very funny, and seems to truly enjoy interacting with her guests. We stayed 5 nights at The Coach House in February and very much enjoyed our stay.
