We stayed in twin bed old style room, not great for couple.
We spent one night in Franschhoek and were in the village for about 24 hours. We drove to the guesthouse in the morning, parked our car and left for the wine tram. We only returned just after 6 pm, which is when we checked in. We spent literally the night at the guest house but found it to be clean and pleasant. The breakfast was the usual English Breakfast and there was a spread of croissants, juices etc to choose from as well.
The wifi did not work very well and, though it may be perfectly safe, since the rooms were separated from the road by just a verandah, we felt (this could just us being paranoid) the slightest bit unsafe. Having said that, there was no untoward incident and there is meant to be security from 7 pm to 7 am at the place.
The staff were very welcoming, friendly, and really helpful. The room was lovely, and location was perfect.
Location is very central, yet in a nice quiet place. Staff are friendly and courteous. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and good value for money. Ample parking space.
Breakfast is adequate but not a wide choice. Wifi works ok but is patchy.
great room, bed, location
WiFi cut out on the second evening

Reception, attention, care, friendlyness, cleanliness, structure, services.
Very friendly staff, lovely room and great breakfast
Remote for the DSTV didn't work. Not up to standard for a x4 star hotel. Breakfast was shocking! Won't go there again!!
Quaint and friendly. Value for money.
Breakfast not fantastic but not terrible.
Lovely old building located close to the main street but far enough away so was nice and quiet, excellent breakfast and the room we had was beautifully decorated in a traditional style
A small fridge in the room would have been useful.
It was comfortable, secure and the staff nice and helpful. The colonial atmosphere was great. Franschoek is a very nice and safe village to visit
The guest house is in a perfect position just a few steps off the main road where there are many shops and restaurants. The rooms are accessed straight from the street which is great as there is no need to go through any main building. The bed was good with lovely white linen and there was a lovely bathroom. Breakfast is served on a very pleasant terrace and is a cooked meal. It was real value for money, with everything you need and in a great location.
The room was a bit dingy with wood floor boards and dark wood dressers. Could do with brightening up a bit and with a nice light tiled floor. However, we were more than happy with the room and would not hesitate in staying there again.
Well situated, and staff very pleasant. Mother of 87years, needed a bath, and other B and B's that I first checked could not give her that.
Friendly , helping , convenient ,quiet ,easy parking.
The high ceilings,helpful and friendly proprietors. Only 2 mins from town centre with a large selection of good restaurants. Large off street parking
