“great hospitality”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

we really enjoyed our stay. hospitality was excellent. the owners are very hands on. all the rooms seemed good although the 3 upstairs rooms are best as they have a balcony and nice view. the guest house is on the fringe of the town but we found it easy to walk to the restaurants and other facilities. the owners will recommend eateries and things to do and indeed will book for you. we had some excellent meals with lunch at la petite ferme followed by jazz night on Fridays at the Brasserie the highlight. would definitely go back. Franschoek is a great place to start or finish a holiday. Only one hour drive from the airport at Capetown. Accomodation is not cheap in Franschoek by SA standards but this just reflects supply and demand. Gable manor was well worth it!

My husband and I stayed in Gable Manor for our honeymoon and it was the highlight of our trip. The guest house itself is superb.... luxurious yet understated, spacious yet intimate. The breakfast is fantastic and the knowledge and friendliness of the owners will ensure that you visit the best wineries and food venues in the area. A really high quality, authentic, south african experience not to be missed if you are heading to South Africa.

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
