Very friendly, cosy and hospitable. Great customer service from Conrad and Franklin. Breakfast very good and supplied with packed lunch for our long drive to Plettenberg Bay. Despite being on the main road, it was a tranquil spot only disturbed by the occasional sound of conkers dropping from the oak tree onto the roof. Great location for the town centre....

Beautiful guest house right in the centre. Once through the gates you would have no idea you were in the centre of town. The rooms are beautifully furnished some with small courtyards. There is an outside and balcony seating area with a small pool. The breakfast area is cool and light and the selection is excellent. All the staff are...

The Last Word was an amazing hotel from the welcome to when we left. The location is ideal to get to everything within the town without having to drive. There were lots of little touches that made the hotel worth visiting, from the free mini bar to the little treats provided when they turn your bed down of an evening....

A small hotel in the middle of Franschhoek with friendly staff and efficient management. Bedroom was large and comfortable, food was excellent. Usually full so need to book early. There is everything you need in the bar and it is all included in the room price, just help yourself.

Very restful stay in this stylish hotel in the centre of Franschhoek. Excellent breakfast and complementary drinks, but quite pricey in view of the fact that there was no garden and a very small swimming pool.

Upgraded to a fabulous suite with its own mini swimming pool and terrace. Great welcome from Conrad and Franklin always on hand to advise about restaurants, routes etc. Lack of restaurant not a problem as there are so many fine places within a short walking distance. Car park is small and I had difficulty in driving in with my larger...
