The property is attractively set amongst olive groves a ten minute drive from Franschhoek. Our self-catering barn accommodation was spacious, well appointed, comfortable and clean. A generous breakfast was served in the main house by delightfully friendly staff. The proprietor, Malcolm, and his wife were very helpful and made us feel most welcome. We loved it and will stay there...

We had a very comfortable stay at Goodings Grove. Much thought and effort has gone in to making it a lovely home where we felt welcomed and relaxed. Franschoek is a very beautiful area with many wineries to visit and a vibrant Saturday morning market. We very much hope to return.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in November 2016. The guesthouse is located a few km from Franschhoek central, so best to have a car/ order a taxi to get around. Taxis were relatively expensive compared to other parts of ZA, usually with sets fees to get in and out of town. The location is quiet with...

Charming accommodation just outside Franschhoek. Pleasant attentive staff and lovely owners.After some shopping and wine tasting it was lovely to retreat to the grassy area around the pool with a book before venturing out to visit the excellent restaurants.
