Very friendly staff and helpful in recommending Boshchendal Winery where we enjoyed a terrific tasting and charcuterie in the most spectacular setting. Our...

We had the most wonderful three night stay at the hotel. All the staff were brilliant and organized great restaurant reservations and really looked after us! Lots of little treats in the room for us to enjoy. The room was spacious with everything you could need. Hope we will be lucky enough to return one day.

A fantastic stay as always! A beautiful environment, hotel and room. The staff were relaxed and engaging and left us wanting for nothing. The special touches put The Last Word Franschhoek in a class of its own.

Nice small & charming boutique hotel with very good service. The hotel is well located in the middle of town, quite convenient, but has no views. Rooms are clean, spacious and well decorated. Breakfast is ok.

Management were always available to support. Home from home! Rooms were great. Towels need upgrading and bed too short. I am 176 CM. Not tall. Breakfast and service great. Really work hard to make your visit exceptional!

Everything you would want for a chilled out weekend. Rooms are big and comfortable. Bathroom is great. My room a secluded patio area. Staff are brilliant from check in to check out. This really is one of the nicest places I have stayed.

A 4 night stay in a Superior room while visiting the various wine estates. Good accommodation in an excellent location with secure on-site parking. The Hotel is in need of a little work but very enjoyable. Recommended.
