My wife and I are retired - so clubs, nightlife, late nights etc are not our scene - but local fine dining, safe, easy walking access to shops and restaurants is. We found Franschhoek's easy-drive location to the other towns and places of interest very convenient - yet less than an hour's drive to the airport. The shops, cafes and some of South Africa's top restaurants are a easy strole from the guest house - and a leisurely, safe return. Don and Marlyn's breakfasts are outstandingly good. Rooms and surrounds are what they say - five star. Service the same, with its relaxed personal approach is just right. Nothing's too much trouble for these two hosts and we've been enjoying this every March for six years - so we know.

Room Tip: Walk everywhere - its great, safe and good for you

A little gem in a fabulous setting. We were given a 5* greeting and shown to the most beautiful suite. The decorations, fittings and attention to detail were to a very high standard.
The owners and staff could not have been more helpful and both the setting for breakfast and food were idyllic!
The gardens were beautifully kept and gave a lovely sense of seclusion when sitting around the small, but beautifully kept pool.
3 nights were not enough and I would definately love to return.

For the second time, we stayed at Gable Manor and it will not be our last time! We feel pampered by Marlyn and her team and what ever it is, they care for it. (e.g. Birthday cake, massage appointments or dinner reservations)

To stay at Gable Manor is a treat.

Not only are the facilities excellent, but the ambience and friendliness of the staff and owners make it a memorable place to stay. The staff members seem happy in their jobs, which makes all the difference.

The service is professional yet discreet, the breakfasts are excellent, the pool area very attractive, the bedrooms and bathrooms attractive and comfortable, with attention to small details that make guests feel welcome.

One cannot ask more than that from a small establishment such as this.

Gable Manor is has a delightful garden and pool, with a well stocked "honesty" bar. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms clean. the only meal served is breakfast but that is very good. It's only a short walk - 10 minutes into town where there are many excellent restaurants. The rooms are spacious and if mine was anything to go by - min suites as I had seperate lounge, bedroom and bathroom. There is free wi-fi plus a PC in the main guest lounge. Althoiugh I was on business and so had little time to explore, ther are many vineyards to visit within the area most of which have their own restaurants. There is also the Hugenot Memorial in the town which I found interesting.
Overall,I had a very pleasant stay and will be very happy if I have the chance to return, this time with my wife for a holiday.
