“A real treat!!!”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

What a special and absolutely unique place to stay! As soon as we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff who were very helpful and accommodated us to a large extent! The apartment was very beautiful - modern with a warm touch and very clean. I highly recommend this accommodation - such a treat!!

This was our second stay at the Ivy over the weekend of the "Champagne Festival" in Franschhoek during December. The apartments are spacious, luxurious and clean. Air-conditioning was really helpful and everything in town is within walking distance from the Ivy.

The location of the apartments are great, not that great however to be charged twice for the apartment, a matter that has still yet to be resolved by the management. The air conditioning units in the apartments are inadequate to cool the large apartment I was in and the washing machine was broken.

Overall, good location but terrible service and i am hoping being charged twice for the room is an oversight that will be resolved by the management ASAP.

Room Tip: Larger rooms have poor A/C facilities, and no A/C provision on the second floor probably ok in the w...

As apartments go this was up there with the very best. Clean, modern and big our apartment had 2 bedrooms 2 bath rooms balcony over looking the main street (not a bad thing) and double height living area. A nice thing about the location is that the local pizza place across the road often had it's own outside entertainment such as gospel singers and bands which made for a nice atmosphere from the balacony on an evening. You also get an great view of the mountains and the rolling mist over them in the morning, it's quite some sight almost a fog waterfall.

The standard of the cleaners could not be faulted, we did feel a bit guilty that they wash up all our plates pots and pans that we had left. Secure parking was available off street and out of site which was good and the general level of security was excellent.

It's a great little town for food and drink and the apartment was perfect for entertaining (we had some friends come over)

Great value stay for a big family. Very well design apartment that can house 5 persons. Everything is well organized and available for any family activities. The central location, right at the heart of Franschhoek center makes the stay even more enjoyable and accessible. The restaurants are everywhere near as well as the smaller boutique shops that sell excellent local stuff. A pick and pay shop makes purchasing of necessity and grocery easy for my family.

We can also cook simple dinner in the apartment and doing the laundry as well. Highly recommend this apartment those family that wants everything under one roof

Once again we stayed at The ivy and it was the most perfect weekend. Every attention to detail was considered. The ambience of the exceptionally luxurious apartment allowed for a magical weekend. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the linen exquisite, the decor very stylish and user friendly, the white fluffy towels thick and luxurious and the gowns provided were warm and comfortable.
a feeling of being pampered like a princess!!!
