Never having been to Franschhoek before we really didn't know what to expect but boy we were certainly not disappointed and completely fell in love with the village. Centre-Ville guest house is lovely and homely and the couple who own it do everything to make you feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive until the moment you...

We stayed in Centre-Ville for just one night and would happily have stayed longer had time permitted. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by the owners Jaco and Elsa. Jaco took time to show us to our rooms and sat and chatted with us about our travels in South Africa whilst we drank our welcome glass of sherry....

Centre-Ville is a lovely accommodation - It is the second time I have visited this guesthouse. I find it to be beautiful and very accommodating. It is very clean and the staff are wonderful. On both occasions when I visited the owners were away and they had guest hosts whom I found to be so helpful, warm and friendly. Centre-Ville...

The breakfast was good, the rooms are small and cozy and warm. It is close to the main street and you can walk to the restaurants in town. There are not much views but it is a very economic option! The hostess is very friendly and she can assist with ideas for activities if you don't know what to do.

We spent a night at Centre-Ville this past weekend and loved it! The guesthouse is beautiful, clean and the owners warm and friendly. Centre-Ville is located just off the main road making it easy to explore the town and surrounding wine farms. We will definitely be back! :)

After a festival in the town we decided to take a swim, we were 4 middle aged woman, the owner took up a chair beside the pool - after his wife heard about this she stood by his defence - she walked past me without greeting, she was furious - she got wind of my complaint - she still looked...

Good Afternoon Lady I am very sad to hear this story because you are insulting us and why write a review like this??? Jaco will never invite himself to join guests if there was not a reason. We are professional and most of the time keep our distance and that will all our guest tell you. I will never ignore...

We really enjoyed our stay at centre ville. Jaco and Elsa made us feel very welcome. The rooms are very neat and well equipped and they are cleaned daily. The guesthouse is centrally located and we could walk to most of our excursions. The breakfast is delicious!

We stayed only one night, for a wedding. The guesthouse is right in the centre of town, very close walking distance to shops and restaurants. The house is a beautiful old structure, and decorated to suit. The beds were very comfortable, and the big bath and shower were great. Breakfast was generous and delicious. My only note is that we...

The room at the first floor was nice, but we didn't really enjoy having the shower in the bedroom. It worked fine, but not in our tast! The guesthouse as such was welcoming and with character - and a distinct old British style. And the breakfast was great! Very central, 2 minutes walk, and we were in the middle of...
