What a wonderful place to stay. Amazing decor throughout and so relaxing. All the staff are fantastic, Conrad and Franklin do a wonderful job of ensuring your time is perfect and helping to sort out anything you need. Beautiful touches like the desserts at the end of the evening and candles on the last night. Breakfast was lovely with plenty...

Our fifth visit to The Last Word and, as previously, we were warmly welcomed by Franklin and the tea and biscuits on our arrival were appreciated after our journey! Unlike a previous reviewer we prefer not being constantly fussed over! Conrad, Franklin and their staff are discreetly and immediately available to deal with your every request. We did not experience...

This is the perfect place for those who wish to be quietly pampered in this most comfortable and sophisticated place. Nothing is too much trouble for your knowledgeable and charming hosts. Its location is ideal for those who seek the distractions of Franschhoek and it's beautiful environs, it's many vineyards and excellent restaurants.

It is bliss arriving here. It is charming, personal, and calming. The rooms are gorgeous and every effort is made to make your stay as wonderful as possible. The only problem is that no where else compares. It is that good.

This is a real boutique hotel with only 9 beautiful rooms. We were warmly welcomed to this lovely hotel and nothing was too much trouble. The room we had was spacious and decorated tastefully. Very nice bathroom and the most comfortable bed we stayed in during our garden route holiday. A swimming pool on the ground floor with sun beds...

Simply stunning. When you walk into The Last Word from the main street in Franschhoek you feel like you've walked into a haven of tranquility. The rooms are large, the public areas are bright and spacious, the pool area is perfect and the staff could not have been more helpful. All drinks are inclusive and afternoon tea is served with...

Have stayed here many times in both pool suites and superior rooms. Both are excellent and spacious although certain rooms are let down by the lack of privacy. In recent years this boutique hotel has expanded from 6 rooms to 10 and the pool area and first floor patio struggle to cope with the increased number of guests. Would recommend...

We stayed here five years ago - and this trip was even better! Peter was welcoming, charming and extremely helpful in advising us on activities, and Franklin kindly recommended restaurants for our evenings. There are so many fabulous eateries in Franschhoek that, fortunately, the Last Word does not serve dinner! The breakfast menu was delicious and offered a great variety...

If ever a slick and well presented website promised an experience that failed to materialise in reality, it is The Last Word in Franschhoek This place is really a glorified bed-and-breakfast, Well positioned centrally in the High Street but no way delivering anything approaching the last word in luxury as the website suggests. There were so many aspects that we...
