The Corner house is one of the few in Franschoek with child-friendly service and the host is very attentive. The house is beautifully renovated and decorated and they serve an excellent home-made breakfast.

Great vibe all the time and Michaela was simply fantastic. I would certainly stay there again and would recommend to any of my friends. Perhaps there could have been better cupboard facilities in our room and the parking situation was not all that convenient.

Dear Basil, many thanks for your lovely feedback. We would be delighted to welcome you again. We are a guesthouse after all with parking for a house and not a hotel, but will take your feedback for ways of improvement and thank you.

Lovely property. Michaela is very welcoming and accommodating. I arrived earlier than check-in so I could catch the wine tram. She allowed me to check in when I arrived which was very helpful. The property is very quite and my room was charming. Town is just a short walk away. Would definitely recommend.

The Corner House was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. Beautifully decorated, well maintained and with lots of little extras that are rare in guest houses. Staff were warm and friendly and breakfast was excellent. The property is just a 10 minute stroll from the town centre and so it's excellently placed to explore Franschoek and...

Many thanks for your response. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and highlighted our breakfast. We try to provide a hearty and healthy breakfast where we only cook with Coconut oil, bake our own seed and white bread loaf of bread and make our own Bircher Muesli. We hope to welcome you again to our guesthouse.

A charming B&B, clean and conveniently located. The owner makes it special. She was welcoming and very helpful, making dinner reservations for us and giving us advice on the best places for wine tasting. Very highly recommended.

Amazing and calm place very close to the main street of Frenchhoek. Nice and clean rooms, a small pool and Mikaela, the hostess, was really nice and helpful. You can not ask more so we recommend this place and will probably come back again next year

“For overnighting, any of the more simple rooms are perfect. For a longer stay, the "deluxe" or honeymoon suite, at not many more RRR, is wonderful - you have your own fireplace for chilly nights and a huge bathroom with deep bath for a lovely long soak after you've been walking the streets of Franschhoek!”
