Good breakfast but note that you can also have a cooked breakfast
Nothing to dislike
Very large and well equipped rooms. Extras e.g. Swimming towels provided, very reasonable honesty bar, complimentary sherry Close location to restaurants.
Location was superb, we had the garden room, which backed onto the pool with a view of the mountains. Very spacious modern well equipped room, with log burner for the colder evenings, not that we needed it. Breakfast was superb, food to satisfy every taste with very attentive polite staff.
Parking is a little bit of a squeeze, but parking available on street.
In the centre of the town. Staff very helpful, booked local restaurants which were very good. A lovely colonial feel to the house.
Parking of cars wasn't great. Floors were a bit creaky.
- Separate house for 6 of us - Perfect location for restaurants and shops on hight street. - Friendly helpful staff, we had a minor medical issue staff couldn't have been more helpful.
Really helpful staff great location lovely house & garden
A very warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Kathie and her staff, lovely characterful house so close to Franschhoek centre and all the wineries. Superb! I would recommend to anyone.
We were welcomed very warmly to La Fontaine Guest House & were thrilled to find a very comfortable & homely atmosphere. It is in a perfect spot ,very accessible to the main street & the many restaurants & shops ,but still in a very quiet street away from the centre. We required an early breakfast so as to catch a flight ,& the staff were more than happy to provide that for us. We recommend this guesthouse.
We loved the hosts, the location, the room, and the breakfast. A great price for a superb getaway. Thank you Kathy!
The room was spacious with a VERY comfortable bed. All the amenities needed were available, including a carafe of port on arrival! Despite being winter, the swmming pool was sparklingly clean - roll on summer! The location is excellent and is a mere 150 m from the main road and a selection of excellent restaurants and shops. The owner was friendly, helpful and clearly passionate about her B&B. Definitely a place to return to!
Wonderful staff, brilliant, quiet location - it's just behind the Pick 'n Pay/ABSA in the main Road of Franschhoek. Our room, Lemon, was just about perfect - flat screen tele, fireplace already stocked up and ready to go, tea and coffee making facilities with yummy biscuits and even some complimentary muscadel. The lady on duty was really helpful in recommending ColCacchio for take away dinner (hubby wasn't feeling great). Breakfast the next morning was lovely as well - good selection on the buffet. We would have had preferred to have a bath as well if we were staying longer, but didn't detract from our stay.
We had to leave...
Friendly staff, good breakfast (bread was awesome), comfortable. Thank you for keeping my flip-flops safe until i can come back and get them! :)
a note for those who cant carry heavy things up the stairs, there is no lift.
great location, staff are very friendly and helpful, lovely breakfast
We had two rooms- one couple was outside in the garden suite and the other in the main house upstairs. The way the security works it is not possible for the people inside to get to the garden suit outside and vice-versa once the main house has been locked for the night (without the leaving the premises and having the other couple meet them at the gate to let them in), this is a bit clumsy when you're travelling with other people, and could easily be avoided by providing guests access to both the main house and side gate, regardless of where they are staying.
No hesitation needed, this place is amazing
Great location for a beautiful town and wonderful scenery. Lovely guest lounge.
Nothing. Pity the weather was a bit too cool to sit out for breakfast.
Calmness, friendly staff, location, met all our needs.
Accommodation (the attractive property and bedroom), Management, Location, Breakfast. It was all extremely good - we enjoyed
Only negative, which could have been a major problem had La Fontaine been full, was that our Reservation through Booking.Com had not reached the hotel by the time we arrived (booked on-line previous day and arrived next afternoon). Luckily, it was the Sunday night after the holiday, and we had the choice of four excellent rooms. The confirmation arrived as we left.
Beautiful guest house within walking distance to wonderful town
Friendly and welcoming service. We were given a choice from the available rooms of which one we'd like to stay in (after a guided tour of these)! Very homely feel. Complementary sherry/port. Rooms/bathooms large and well appointed. Good location just a short stroll to the main street with all the shops/restaurants.
Nothing comes to mind.
Old world comfort and service and central location.
Noisey toilet plumbing.
the setting was lovely
Great position close to centre. Kathy (the owner was extremely helpful). Nice pool and spacious lounges in public areas.
The Garden suite which we occupied whist well positioned next to the pool was a little dark inside and the wardrobe and drawer space was poor.
