The Last Word is probably better described as a luxury B&B or boutique small hotel, however none of that matters as it is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable and the in room amenities great. What separates this place is the wonderful service from Conrad and his team. Any request was greeted with a smile...

We stayed here for three nights. The B&B is clean and comfortable, all plush carpets and white walls. The staff were wonderful and helpful. Breakfasts superb and within easy walking distance of town with all the restaurants and shops. The staff have sample menus for you to look at and will book your restaurants for you. Make sure you do...

This is a wonderful boutique hotel in the heart of Franschhoek. The staff was super friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. The room we had (regular room, not a suite) was beautifully appointed with a comfortable bed, lovely sitting area and spacious bathroom and closet areas. The hotel grounds are super cute, with a small (but usable) swimming pool in...

We loved it here, so much so, I was in denial about leaving. Everything was perfect, from the breakfast cooked freshly to your order to the room. We stayed in Room Number 2 and had our own pool, which was fantastic. The room was huge but beautifully done. One night it was slightly chilly and when we returned from dinner,...

Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip to the Winelands. Conrad and his staff were amazing hosts and the hotel is just beautiful.

One of the nicest welcomes we've ever had. This from Conrad. Following on from checking us in he immediately sorted out restaurants for both nights of our stay. Really nice location.
