we really enjoyed our stay, although it was only 2 days i wished it could have been longer. The hosts were very pleasant and friendly, loved the 2 kitties (Popcorn and Fudge) our self catering guest house was clean, very spacious and one thing i noticed that most places do not have is the "Things to do in Franschoek" wow...

We've had a great 2 nights in franschoek. Just walk down the street and you will find a nice italian restaurant. Take youre car to the leopards leap and do the wine tasting. In the guesthouse i really liked the overall feeling of being in a magical place with the lovely cat Popcorn whom stayed with us during our stay.

We stayed at Sunny Lane for 2 nights and it was very pleasant. The owners are very friendly, the accommodation is very basic but then the price is very competitive compared to all the other accommodation in the area. It is within walking distance to the village and safe parking in the street. Overhaul we had an very enjoyable stay.

Awesome. Will definitely visit again. Good central location for traveling and exploring. Neat and tidy accommodation, friendly service. Perfect for that December break and very private and secure location.

Good location for Wine Tram and restaurants. Facilities are good for self catering and everything you needs for a few days stay. Room was a little tired and towels etc being updated would also make a difference. Lovely patio with table and chairs and there was a pool which had to be covered so we didn't use it.

Thanks for the tip about the towels - these have already been replaced! Our pool is beautiful, but we are compelled by the municipality to cover our pools in order to prevent evaporation because of the...

Perfect base for day trips in the Cape Town/wine area. Good beds, quiet and safe. Very nice to have your own garden with swimming pool. Try this accommodation when you tired of hotels and want a more everyday living.

The location of the place is very practical as you have everything in walking distance. The room.was well equipped and comfortable. The host is not really helpful which was ok for us. Very good value for money.
