We stayed for two nights at the Garden House in late November 2008. When we arrived at the Garden House we received a very nice welcome from Annette, who settled us down with a cool drink and an introduction to the Garden House.
The hosts Annette & Barry are the most helpful and friendly people who you would want to meet, from previously emailing a very helpful restaurant guide, to helping with all the information of the area that you would need, nothing is too much trouble. Also a table was booked at the Friday night Jazz at the vineyard Brasserie. (Which we would recommend if you are in Franschhoek on a Friday evening during the summer)
The cottage is very spacious and comfortable, with very nice fittings.
The breakfast was second to none, and very relaxed taken on a beautiful veranda overlooking the garden and mountains, and includes local smoked trout and cheeses.
This is my fifth visit to Franschhoek, staying at various quality guest Houses, but without doubt, The Garden House is the best
I was in two minds about reviewing this guest House because once anyone has visited the Garden House, it will make it the only place to stay on any return to Franschhoek, and maybe full when I next holiday in this beautiful location. I will plan and book in advance
