“Perfect weekend retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Myself and family stayed in the beautiful family room with a stunning view of the mountains. Everything was to perfection, from the comfy beds to the heated floor. Justin was the perfect host, making us feel more that welcome. So many good restaurants to eat at in the area, and just a stroll away from Avondrood. Will be back soon

We were lucky enough to stay in the amazing family unit at Avondrood. The views from the deck are breath taking and the room spotless and comfortable.
A tasty glass of red wine, sitting in front of the open fire, stunning. The guest house is immaculate, the breakfast was delicious and Justin and his team are always on hand to tend to your every need. We would highly recommend Avondrood Guest House if you want to add to your unforgettable holiday.

Upon arrival we were welcomed by Justin, an amazing host who is very attentive to all our needs.
We stayed for 2 nights during our travel along the garden route. Justin has excellent knowledge of the area and further afeild, he gave us excellent directions along route 62 towards Plett.
The rooms are perfect, clean, warming, homely and well furnished. The bed was very very comfortable.
In the evening we joined Michelle for a quick drink and biltong before dinner.
Justin booked us into 2 lovely restaurants to ensure we made the most of our stay.
Breakfast was lovely the choice of continental or cooked. Justin buys fresh bread and the most delectable cinnamon pastries.
Beautifully manicured garden with a decent sized swimming pool and a very warm hot tub even though it was raining it didn't stop me going for a dip.
Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Great hospitality from Justin and other staff made our stay particularly enjoyable. Justin was a great help to us by providing advice on highlights of the area and assistance in arrangements for the rest of our trip along the garden route. Very roomy accommodation and great breakfasts.

Ideally situated in the heart of Franshoek this guest house really goes the extra mile with personal service and extremely friendly staff. The grounds were immaculately maintained, apart from an ornamental bush which had some damage, the pool area is secluded and a good size. The Bar area is great for pre and post dinner drinks and the staff can make excellent local recommendations. I would highly recommend this excellent venue for anyone's stay.

Room Tip: The family suite was divine for my family

Avondrood is an amazing place to stay only a few minutes walk from Franschhoek's main road with all of its shops and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully finished as is the lounge/dining area. The garden is also great place to relax. The breakfasts were delicious. Justin was brilliant ensuring that we had everything we needed, making reservations for us etc We would love to return.
