To say we enjoyed our stay here would be a massive understatement. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Franschhoek with its quaint shops and restaurants. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished. The complimentary mini bar was a nice touch too. The main rooms of the hotel are lovely and lend themselves to a totally relaxing ambience....

When planning this trip, I asked for "authentic and charming" - and what we got at The Last Word was elegant, distinctive, warm and nicer than anywhere I have ever stayed! The room, the staff, the location and the town are the epitome of authentic and charming plus added elegance and warmth. And to top it off, Ii woke up...

From an informative and relaxed checkin to the large comfortable room to the relaxing public areas, this is a jewel of a hotel. The staff are friendlyand informative without being obsequious. The breakfast is tasty. It is easy to organise transfers.

Very rare to see such universally high ratings. 85% rated excellent made is stand out for me when I was deciding on my Franshhoek hotel. Having just stayed 4 nights thee over New Year, the excellent rating is fully justified. The people (led by Franklin & Conrad) just cannot do enough to help their guests. The breakfast are excellent, the...

I was pleased to be able to get a 3 night reservation here over the new year, after reading other good reviews. It is a beautifully decorated establishment that makes you feel calm and relaxed, helped by the warm welcome, as soon as you arrive. Right in the thick of it where local eateries and shops are concerned you couldn't...

We stayed at The Last Word for a night during our visit to Cape Town. The service was excellent and the location very convenient. Amazing room with our own private pool. We also enjoyed the delicious breakfast. Not cheap but definitely worth the money. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

We were lucky enough to stay at The Last Word for two nights, and absolutely loved our time here. The service is outstanding, we were upgraded to a private pool villa which was an extra special touch of privacy. All the rooms are light and spacious with huge bathrooms. Complimentary mini bar makes for a nice touch, as does the...

A lovely hotel based in Franschhoek. The customer service from Franklin was truly exceptional. The hotel is located in the centre of town, and was spotlessly clean. We would be happy to stay there again.

I would highly recommend this guesthouse. We booked a luxury room with a private pool. The room was the size of an apartment, well designed and clean. The mini bar is complimentary, little deserts are placed in your room each evening and the breakfast is delicious. The staff were extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit. This guest...
