This wine country B&B is the total package in scenic Franschhoek. It is located closely to many of the vineyards in the area. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff was terrific and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was included and the location was perfect. Highly recommend it!

We spent three lovely nights with family and friends at Klein Waterfall. The rooms were great and clean, the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating and overall it felt like a home away from home with stunning views. The breakfast was fab too. Definitely one of the best places in the area!

Our stay here was lovely. The host was excellent, as was the breakfast. This was the only place where we were shown around on arrival, so we knew where everything was. We wish we had booked for more than one night. Fantastic

Our host could have been family! He advised us about restaurants, then even made the bookings for us. Breakfast was the full house menu with personal service. There certainly are more luxurious...

We had a very pleasant stay at Klein Waterval. The location was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The bathroom was a bit jaded, but this is being addressed, and there will be a refurbishment later this year. I would stay again and would recommend the lodge.
