“Perfect Honeymoon spot”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

This was our second stay at The Ivy, with this trip being more special than the first as it was our honeymoon. Lisa and Wellington went the extra mile and it was such a treat staying there. The attention to detail in the apartment was amazing and that it was personalised for us. The location is perfect and close to everything including the wine tram route and the best restaurants in Franschoek. We will certainly stay here again.

Thank you for making our stay memorable.

Unbelievable holiday apartments walking distance to all amenities in Franschoek. Beautiful decor- Home away from home. Cosy and warm. Couldn't have asked for more. Feel spoilt and can't wait to be back again soon.

Wellington was exceptional. Friendly and very helpful.
The rooms were very comfortable and luxurious.
The accommodation is well positioned to explore the town.
The DSTV remote was not working properly

We stayed at the Ivy Apartments for 1 week and enjoyed it very much. The apartments are well located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping area of Franschhoek. We had a two bedroom/bathroom apartment. Modernly furnished and in reasonable condition. The one bathroom is very very small, something like a toilet with a shower in it. Unfortunately we seem to have been the last guests before the winter maintenance began. They started in the week we were there and we had to put up with drilling and cementing. Otherwise no complaints and we would go back there again.

Room Tip: We were allowed to see al the apartments and we would go for number 2

Its been a while since my last stay, but nothing has changed! The apartments have maintained their luxurious elegance and Wellington is still the man! - ensuring we had all we needed to keep warm and comfortable. The embossed bath gowns are just one of the many touches making this a memorable stay in the centre of Franschhoek.... again!

Stunning luxury apartments nestled in the centre of Franschhoek, clean, elegant, sophisticated, yet comfy and has all the mod cons need and great heating system (needed for this time of year).Wellington the care taker was pleasant, helpful and charming and he certainly does make you feel welcome when you arrive. All in all a great place to stay

The Ivy Apartments in Franschhoek are ideally located just off the Main Street and within walking distance of everything, and the only thing better than the location is the inside - beautifully furnished and yet so comfortable! We were unfortunately only able to spend one night at the apartment but could easily have spent a week.
