After waiting in the cold for over 30mims someone arrived, they did not even introduce themselves, we first thought they were guests. Very unfriendly check in service. We arrived to our room after passing a few "guests" eating...

Clean and peace full. Different rooms to choose from especially for the budget traveller. Lovely garden and atmosphere. The lodge is close to a variety of restaurants and attractions. There is safe and sufficient parking. Expect a warm reception on arrival!

We had a good stay. All members enjoyed to be at a professional place. With availability of equipment my life was easy it also added value to our stay. We will consider your place for next year, and inform other groups.

We came as a group of 10 students doing the Wine Tram. FTL was ideally situated very close and the staff were very accommodating. We had a left a few of our belongings behind and the staff made the effort to contact us to retrieve these. We will definitely be going back!

Very friendly service at the front desk. The beds and bedding, shower was Amazing! The only problem is the walls are so things you can hear the person in the room next door snoring. The floors are all wooden so you can hear other guests running or walking up and down the corridors from until 1 am and up again...

We stayed at the Travellers' Lodge for a week. Our room was spacious and clean and we had our own bathroom. We were very comfortable in this "no-frills" establishment and it is really the best value for money in Franschhoek. Friendly and helpful staff contributed to our very pleasant stay. I would definitely recommend it to all visitors.

We liked the look of your lodge on the site. but were a bit disappointed at the size of the room for the price, and no view from our window. However, we were only there for a wedding, thus one night. the shower was hot and the bed VERY comfortable. We enjoyed walking around the monument and town . regards
