We were welcome as first time vistors by Don and Marlyn as if we had been long term friends. The room and support facilities are excellent and set within a liitrle oasis in a residential araea couple of streets up and parallel with the main Franshoek shopping highway.
Cleanliness of the highest order and breakfasts you cannot fail to enjoy to suit all preferences.
Restaurants are a plenty and your hosts will direct and even reserve your table in advance of your arrival. The town shops are quirky and the surrounding wine yards spoil you for choice. Well worth stopping over in a very scenic great landscape valley.

This is probably one of the best guest houses you'll ever find!
The owners are very nice and kind people as well as the staff working at the guest house. The rooms are nice also, with satellite TVs and clean and spacious bathrooms. The swimming pool area is really good also, with comfortable deck-chairs and nicely exposed to the sun. The breakfast is magnificent, great buffet where you can find anything you desire for breakfast and the freshly cooked omelettes and croissants are outstanding!
Absolutely the best guest house I've ever been to!

We so enjoyed our stay at the Gable Manor. Our hosts were kind and helpful. Even made dinner and golf reservations for us. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Nice large beds. The bathrooms are beautiful and well furnished. We would stay there again if if the area and would recommend it to our friendsl They are known for their breakfasts and you will not be dissapointed. Free internet usage in the parlor was excellant Good safe off road parking.

Gable Manor Guest House is an all round great place to stay in Franschhoek.
The rooms are luxurious, spacious, very clean and well mantained. Has excellent decor and serves a delectable breakfast included in the daily rates. We found the owners very knowledgeable about the area, restaurants and helpful with advice on places to visit.
It's definitely a Guest House to recommend.Natália and Roger

By good luck (and Portfolio) we were fortunate to stay in Gable Manor Guest House for a few days. It was a revelation, a very positive one. The comfortable rooms, personal service, advice and food were all excellent but what made it a truly Home from Home was the superb little features that are rarely met in hotels or guest house. These included wonderfully sensitive items in the bedroom, such as little towels wrapped with a sprig of lavender, a variety of magazines to read, as well as the customary tea/coffee maker, tv, etc.
The breakfasts were to die for - well presented, well cooked, wide variety ,

Overall the Gable Manor Guest House is undoubtedly the best guest house we have ever stayed in because of all these little features.
