A little gem of a B and B just a few yards from the Main Street of Franschhoek. The rooms are very good , each with a private outside seating area. There is a spacious breakfast room and lounge for guests, together with a good swimming pool, outside seating area and a decking balcony on the roof of the hotel, ideal for watching the sun set over the mountains surrounding the town.
The breakfasts are good and there is an extensive complimentary bar open all the time. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They gave us excellent advice on which of the town's many restaurants to visit for dinner and were happy to make the reservations for us. We tried 'The French Connection', 'Le Bon Vivant' and 'The Grill Room' - all served excellent food and were very good value.
If time allows, take a tour of some of the local vineyards. The tour uses a charming if ancient bus and tram and operates as a hop on hop off service visiting about six vineyards as well as a very interesting Huguenot museum. Our favourite vineyards were the Rickerty Bridge and the Dieu Donne, with its lovely views. Both had wine tasting included in the price of the tour. The tour leaves from just a few yards from the front gate of The Last Word. We also visited the extraordinary and emaculate Motor Museum. This has to be seen to be believed. We would certainly stay at the Last Word again.
