This is a delightful family run B&B in a a pretty and quiet area of Franschhoek just off the main street. Great location easy walking to all sites and restaurants. The room I had was beautifully decorated with own shower. There was a living room area that 3 of the rooms could share which was great when we had some...

Good and cosy place. But not much more. No TV in the Room which is a bit bad these times. Also WIFI didn't work when we were there. But overall nice people that run it and cosy place to stay for a night.

Clean, comfortable rooms and a warm welcome from the hosts, including Jamie the dog. Tucked off the main street of Franschhoek, the Corner House is a tranquil spot. A delicious and generous breakfast.

Nice place for a short trip to Franshoek. The Corner House is located within walking distance from the town-center. You can spend lovely days at the pool. Dick made an excellent recommendation for a restaurant for dinner.

We had very nice stay in Franschhoek, the accomodation was very good ratio between price and service. Good breakfast but served from 8h30 so not for early departure. Friendly owner, with great tips for restaurants.

The location, cleanliness and friendliness of the owners makes this B & B worth the visit. However the breakfast service was so unbearable that we did not stay for breakfast on the last day. The staff chatted on top of their voices and so engrossed in their conversation that we repeatedly had to get up from our table, go into...

Comfortable stay. Good location, spotless rooms with daily housekeeping. Substantial breakfast that sets you up for a day of wine tasting! We arrived early and yet our room was ready for us. We had a mishap whilst here on the first night in that they gave us the wrong key and as such couldn't access the b&b. We spent half...

I found the guest house a little noisy but the location was great and the room cute. Mostly the willingness to please will make me go back. We forgot some belongings in our room but the hosts called us, posted the goods and went out of their way to ensure that we were happy... THANK YOU

“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!”
