Score from 124 reviews Fabulous 8.6/10
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.
The entire experience, friendly hosts, lovely air conditioned rooms. Great pool. The best fruit salad I have ever had for breakfast ( omelettes are pretty good too ) ! Thank you Kathie and staff !
Nice location. Rooms are spacious. Beds ok. Breakfast good (except for the coffee).
Wifi weak and only in common areas. A bit dated but well maintained.
Lovely room right in front of a beautiful pool. Location was perfect for everything.
This place is excellent. Even for a South African, this is great value for money. The owners / mangers are very warm & welcoming. Great house with a warm country feeling.
Dirty pool - no view from the suite balcony
Exellent location and staff. On walking distance from many first class restaurants
Location in central Franschhoek. Pool and garden area. Good breakfast
Garden room (deluxe room) although it had all facilities was a little 'shabby'
Great service and staff, great comfort, lovely place simply.
staff present only until 8 pm, and in the afternoon only one person present. restricts check-in time and accessibility
A warm friendly welcome made us feel at home. it is a charming Guest House in a quiet area to stay at.
Lovely, relaxing stay. We had a room in the old colonial main building which was full of character. Situated just off the street and all the restaurants and bars.Very clean, superb breakfast selection. Very helpful staff.
Bit pricey compared with similar establishments we have been staying in South Africa.
