My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in May during a Cape wine tour. We had the best time getting to know Annette and Barry! We miss them already and want to go back for another visit and perhaps get married there. The Guesthouse is so perfectly kept. It was a joy to have the dog and 3...

My wife and I stayed with Annette and Barry for a night but it didn't take long to feel right at home. We had a great time chatting with them before dinner, and they were very helpful in helping us choose the right place. Annette even dropped us off as it was little cool that evening. The room we were...

The guest room at The Garden House is enough to warrant a five star rating - lovely decor, comfy bed, luxury bathroom, well stocked complimentary mini bar, use of the beautiful garden and pool, close to all of the attractions of Franschoek...what puts this place into a whole other league though is Barry and Annette.

We stayed here for two nights in the cottage based on the Tripadvisor reviews and were blown away by the level of hospitality, standard of accommodation and the beautiful setting. The cottage is fully separate from the beautiful main house and has a huge amount of space with a luxurious bathroom with underfloor heating, twin sinks, separate bath and shower...

Rarely do I feel moved enough by my accommodation to write a review but this is a definite exception. There is a very good reason The Garden House is number one on tripadvisor.
