If you dont like stylish, quiet, comfortable environments, then do not stay! ! Conrad and Franklin
(Mostle dealt with Conrad) were fantastic, nothing
was too much trouble. Very conformable stay and will most certainly be back.
Thank you.

Stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly recommend it. Franshhoek is full of places that rely on outdated, stuffy reputations and attract similar clientele. This place is so understated - the service is so sleek and little touches like finding a bathrobe and mini dessert on your bed when you come in are lovely. Great varied breakfast - lots of healthy options and Franklin is a wealth of information about the area. Lovely little pool area, comfy and spacious rooms. Highly recommend it.

This is a superb small hotel with a perfect location to be able to walk through Franschhoek.
The team, led by Franklin are one of the best you'll find. Courteous, delightful and charming with a commitment to ensure that every aspect of your stay is memorable. Great breakfasts, served with a smile and nothing is too much trouble. Franklin is a top quality front man with a great knowledge of the town and surrounding area and made our stay so enjoyable.
Great bar in the lounge with a good selection of wines and spirits and recently renovated making the the whole place feel fresh and light.
Will return without doubt. No need to consider anywhere else !

Lovely big room. Amazing service going above and beyond at every step. Great brekkie, buffet and cooked. Spot on location so you can walk the town centre. Cannot recommend enough.

They even put little candles and chocolates in our room at night!!

We arrived at the hotel to learn that it had suffered flooding and was under renovation.... Not to worry, it just meant the rooms were brand new and the hotel is furnished with new luxury.

Franklin and Conrad both greeted us on arrival and couldn't do enough during our stay. Want to eat out? They will arrange it. Want breakfast on your private patio? They will deliver it.

Complementary drinks (wine / beer included) are in your minibar and the reception area but going out for wine tasting (hotel recommended great tasting venues) is a must.

Overall a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely stop here again,

We stayed at The Last Word for a 3 day weekend and boy were we impressed. It lives up to its name in every respect - from the personal, attentive front of house staff, to the opulent yet comfortable suites (ours had a private pool - spectacular!). Breakfasts in bed were amazing, the bar wine selection respectible, and everything else simply perfect! I have very little else to say besides with boutique hotels like this i have no idea why anyone would choose to stay in one of the larger chains. Simply superlative in every way, and we will certainly be back. Oh, and its within walking distance to Le Quartier Francais (Tasting Room review to follow), Reubens, and pretty much everything else on the main strip. If you are visitng Franschoek and can get a booking don't stay anywhere else. seriously.

We should have had 3 nights here, but arrived to find the hotel had been devastated by flooding during the night. We could see that it had been so attractive and welcoming. The staff were incredible, even though some of them were dealing with flooding in their own homes too, their only concern was for their guests,and making suitable alternative arrangements for them.Franklyn was particularly helpful.We could see enough to know that we will definitely return here when it opens again. We hope that is not to far away, though there is obviously a lot of hard work ahead for the staff.We wish you good luck with the renovations, and thanks to the staff for their help with our arrangements.
