While we had trouble first locating the place (I believe its shown incorrectly on google maps), we were quite happy with our stay here in January 2012. John and Sheila were great hosts, and their breakfast was very good. We loved the dogs, and John was very helpful with helping us chart our wine tasting schedule. He even made a...

I booked for one night about 3 weeks before I came by the site venere.com which is displayed you can cancel the reservation until 24 hours before your coming. As soon as I booked it, agincourt has debited my account of 100% of the cost - which wasn't made by the other guesthouse I booked. A week before the date...

We booked out Agincourt for our wedding guests over the Easter weekend. There was lots of comings and goings with there being 20 of us and Joun and Sheila couldn't have been more hospitable and welcoming. They accommodated unusual requests such as a ' hand mirror' 'travel plugs' and John even made sure my wedding dress had a crease free...

We loved our time at Agincourt and think John and Sheila are the perfect hosts. Breakfast was incredible (especially after a long night of wine tasting!) and the lodge was immaculately clean and well looked after. Sheila's troop (5) of rescued dogs were always a delight and very well behaved -- except for the occasional naughty sausage seeking Sparky! If...

Our first challenge was actually finding this Guest House. The sat nav we had couldn't find it, and took us up the Franshhoek pass, then wanted us to turn left off a cliff! If you are going up a mountain you are going the wrong way! After a call to the proprietor we found the place. If you are staying...

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed the experience. John and Sheila are great hosts and the most helpful people we have ever stayed with-nothing was too much trouble and they helped with ideas on what to do and where to eat. John arranged for us to be collected and taken to two restaurants and on to Stellanbosch...

My husband and I stayed at Agincourt while on a short weekend getaway from the city. It really was the perfect pick. But I must preface this review by saying that, if you're the kind of person who would rather have a solitary holiday where you want to retreat into your space or have an annoymous breakfast while reading your...

My wife and I returned here after a year away and were pleased to see nothing had changed (except for tarmac from the monument to the beginning of the drive) and so it is very much a case of endorsing all the positive comments which people make. It is quiet and relaxing and even being under six feet tall I...

We had a fabulous stay here at Agincourt and I fail to understand the comments by some other reviewers. John and Sheila are so kind, friendly and helpful, and try to make your stay perfect.
