We had a very warm welcome at the trailhouse.Fransel was such a friendly host you could always have a nice chat with.our room was lovely with a little balcony and seaview.although you could also see the wonderful mountain and of course Fransel's neat garden.for us a perfect stay in an astonishing surrounding.
I liked that it was close to places to visit. I enjoyed the peace, quiet and tranquility.
Nice cosy bedroom facing the sea
Breakfast was a total ripoff
It was well priced and we enjoyed our stay. The owner was friendly and informative. We had a pleasant experience and would go back.
If you ever want to experience South african hospitality stay with Fransel and her family! And don't forget to go hiking there!
Fransal is a very friendly and handson host, area is very peaceful and private, my kind of environment, will certainly visit again
Friendly, helpful hostess. Quiet surroundings. Awesome views of the mountain.
Bit far from the ocean, restaurants and activities. Dirt road to front door. Partial view of ocean.

Hostess was very friendly and accommodating to us as we have two little dogs. Great value and a good all round experience.
Friendly obliging; excellent location
Room was clean and breakfast excellent
The TV didn't work
We were on holiday to the Cape from Gauteng, and needed one night accommodation between other stays. The road to Trail house was amazing and I would stay in Bettie's Bay just for that. The staff was very enjoyable and I can see that people make friends there and visit again and again.
You get what you pay for: A bed, interesting TV setup and a kettle. Very slow running water in the shower. Overall satisfied due to low price.
Loved every moment, beautiful surroundings and Fransel was so accommodating and truly an awesome host. Will go back again!
A very nice and helpful owner / manager! A beautiful nature reserve right on your doorstep
The Trail House is very well-priced, very quiet (which is perfect for a light sleeper), located at the foot of the scenic mountains and with a view of the waterfall in the gorge, and feels secluded while actually being very well-located in Betty's Bay (almost right on Clarence Drive, near the petrol garage and restaurants). The owner is very friendly and easy-going, with a very good knowledge of the area that she is willing to share. Also, I loved the little cave-painting design tiles in the bathroom!!
What I didn't like was the fact that no mention was made about the dirt road leading to the Trail House, because even though it's a short drive, a car with very low ground clearance would struggle, especially in winter if the roads become worse. Also, there were only goose feather pillows, which are not ideal for those with allergies.
We only needed to stay one night (late arrival and early departure), so this establishment was in the perfect location and had just the right facilities we required. Very friendly and accommodating host. No frills, comfortable and clean. Communal kitchen facilities with microwave, fridge and crockery. Dining room has a stunning view of the ocean and our room (3) had a lovely view of the mountain. Extra blankets were provided for the slightly chilly evening we had. To reach the Trail House, travel on a good gravel road of a few hundred metres is required.
The bed in room 3 was very small - actually just very short, even for an average person, but we only stayed one night, so not too much of a bother.
Owner was very helpful. Went the extra mile! Very centrally situated for sightseeing.
It was very cold and no heating of any kind provided. A hot water bottle would have been helpful.
Very friendly and helpful proprietor. Delicious breakfasts. Loved that my room had its own outside door with parking visible from my room. The mountains!
Shower in the bath needed you to bend backwards for water and the last day had a trickle of water.
The family feeling that Fransel brings to her guests made my stay one of the most enjoyable ever, The house is located in a very beautiful and convenient location. I was always offered great suggestions for local day trips full of colorful stories. The most important part of any stay in Betty's Bay is to make sure you are staying at the Trail House.
Fransel - a brilliant host! Location - off the main road The PENGUINS
The big spider that appeared at the bathroom window. Out of season so a few places were not open - but no big deal
The way we were received and treated and the nice coffee
nothing really except for some guests smoking to close to the house or in rooms
The Trailhouse is a lovely place to stop over for a night. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is excellent, and the host Fransel is very kind and welcoming. Our room had a balcony that overlooks the ocean. The trails behind the house are fun and offer a spectacular view of the coastline. The Penguin reserve is a short drive or moderate walk from the house, about 3 km, and is far superior to the more famous Penguin colony at Boulders south of Cape Town. Fantastic value for this hotel.
If possible I will always chose the Trail House to stay over in that area. It's a home from home. Thank you Fransel.
