Theses apartments are in the town centre and really well positioned. Well equipped if you are cooking in (we didn't) but we did have to ask to get towels changed which is disappointing in a serviced apartment. The toilet was constantly running which was a little annoying at night but I'd stay here again with no hesitation.

Located in the heart of Franschhoek and within walking distance of all main restaurants and shops. The room was spacious and well appointed and with almost all possible amenities one can expect. Friendly checkin and accommodating staff.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The lounge and kitchen are open plan and are a good size with lovely furnishings and finishes, the area is double story with lots of floor to ceiling windows so is bright and light. The main en suit bedroom is on a mezzanine level and open to the area below but still private... More

The apartments are situated in a central location on the Main Street. They are well decorated and have all the appliances you need. The staff are friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend staying here. The price is also very good considering how luxurious the apartments are.

We have stayed there before and will do so again! Just love these apartments. Last time we were 2 couples. The downstairs bedroom is a little bit small. This time it was only the 2 of us and it was perfect. Very good value for money!

We stayed here for one night and were very happy. The place is spacious, modern and very comfortable. They have proper coffee and a coffee machine. We found the one thing to complain about was the upstairs bed. It wasn't that comfortable and the pillows were also not great. I had a sore neck for two days afterwards. If you... More

We have only one recommendation, original nespresso capsules would be nice, even if it is only 2 :-) The capsules provided doenst taste nice if you are used to nespresso. We stayed there before so we took our own. Other than that, fantastic!!
