Pleasant establishment with adequate facilities. A little pricey considering the lack of air conditioning, but probably par for Fanchoek. Staff and cleanliness average. well positioned and within walking distance of all town attractions

We were allowed the use the kitchen to clean babies bottles and make use of plates and utensils. We were very appreciative of the help, since this was only bed/breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, a short walk to all amenities. I can highly recommend this B/B

Stayed in the Corner House for 5 nights while attending a wedding in the area. We were made to feel very welcome and our room was extremely comfortable. Short walk into town (we weren't driving) and offered lifts by proprietor if needed.

Very pleasant stay, this is a lovely little B & B in it's own peaceful oasis, you can sit and relax in the lounge or round the pool in the garden. Yet still within easy walking distance for the shops and restaurants. Would definitely return.

“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!”
