A charming B&B, clean and conveniently located. The owner makes it special. She was welcoming and very helpful, making dinner reservations for us and giving us advice on the best places for wine tasting. Very highly recommended.

Amazing and calm place very close to the main street of Frenchhoek. Nice and clean rooms, a small pool and Mikaela, the hostess, was really nice and helpful. You can not ask more so we recommend this place and will probably come back again next year

I have given 5 stars based on the welcome and helpfulness of Michaela. The room was lovely opening out on to a lovely balcony, but my brothers room had no outside space which was a shame. Breakfast excellent and healthy, the only down side was no fridge or TV in rooms, we could use the kitchen fridge, but not ideal....

Dear Margaret, many thanks for your review. I have taken it to heart and as of next week all our rooms will have mini fridges. As for the TV we believe in the sounds of nature and reading a good book and enjoying our garden but I totally understand that for longer stay a TV would be good. Thanks for...

A beautiful place in a lovely town. Michaela and her staff were very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable and a pleasure. Set in beautiful surroundings with lovely rooms and facilities. Centre of town is literally minutes away with great shops, restaurants and cafes. I would recommend The Corner House to anyone.

The Corner House is a wonderful place to stay. Michaela is a lovely, friendly hostess, who serves a delicious breakfast. The bedrooms are lovely and the location very good. Very pretty garden to sit in if wanted. It's in a nice quiet street very close to all the restaurants and shops. We walked everywhere. We couldn't have wanted better.

We stayed 5 nights at The Corner House and definitely will come back, when visiting Franschhoek. The house itself lies in a very quiet, yet centrally located street in Franschhoek. The main-street is only 2 min walk away. There are only 6 - lovely and with attention to detail decorated - rooms, which makes it a very cosy, laid-back and...

“For overnighting, any of the more simple rooms are perfect. For a longer stay, the "deluxe" or honeymoon suite, at not many more RRR, is wonderful - you have your own fireplace for chilly nights and a huge bathroom with deep bath for a lovely long soak after you've been walking the streets of Franschhoek!”
