We enjoyed our stay at The Corner House Guest House and were particularly happy that our dog could stay too. While in bed someone turned the bedroom door (from the library's side) – it must have been a lot guest! Other than that, all good, and a delicious breakfast in the morning.

Thank you for providing bed and lovely breakfast in Franschhoek.!Rooms may not be as superior as some of the other more pricey lodges but perfect for us.Suggest better bedding ie. down and feather duvets and heaters in rooms.

We were most impressed by our reception. Daniele offered us coffee as we walked in - earlier than expected!! She was a superb hostess - the best we have ever encountered!! The rooms are spacious but still cozy - home away from home. The absence of TV's did not bother us one bit! The persons who served us breakfast in...

Arrived on a very wet miserable day after a long flight - but hosts had a very friendly welcome, fire lighting - lovely cosy feel to the property, good nights sleep and a great breakfast to start the day

We booked the lavender honeymoon suite; complete with fireplace right next to the bed and a Victorian-style tub. Two simple yet delightful luxuries perfect for a couple's night. The quick yet courteous greeting at check-in allowed us to settle in at our own pace and without any disturbances. The breakfast staff were friendly and always nearby to assist.

We've been a couple of times and it has always been a pleasure. There is a heater in the rooms to keep you warm. The main street is within walking distance, so you don't have to drive if you taste a little too much wine!

Clean, pleasant room, although a TV in the room would have been nice. Excellent breakfast. Well located - close to main shopping and restaurant area. Better suited to tourists or leisure travellers rather than business people as there is no early breakfast.

The place is worth it . Just few minute walking from the main street where to get the train for the vineyards tour. The room is clean and spacious enough even not the same for the bath . Good breakfast and great cortesy from the landlord.

We spent two days at The Corner House in Franschhoek, my husband, me and our little elderly sausage dog, Bella, plus my parents. Daniele was most accommodating and made us extremely welcome. We needed dog friendly accommodation and this suited us very well! We loved the communal room between our two rooms where we could join up, plus we appreciated...

“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!”
