A fantastic Guest House. We stayed in GELATENHEID for the 3 nights of our stay in Franschhoek and have to say it is one of the nicest places we've stayed in the whole world, let alone South Africa (where to be honest the standards are generally high). Our hosts were extremely hospitable and nothing was too much trouble for either them or their team.
The property is stunning, the gardens beautiful and the location a perfect 10 minute stroll to the excellent restaurants and bars in the village centre. Only slight criticism is that the water in the swimming pool was very cold, but apparently the new pool (which was being dug when we were there) will have some form of solar heating to take the chill off which will be great.
In fact we loved the place so much that we're planning to return this November.
