EVERYTHING about this hotel was nice. Breakfast was out-of this world. The location was perfect.

Gable Manor is has a delightful garden and pool, with a well stocked "honesty" bar. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms clean. the only meal served is breakfast but that is very good. It's only a short walk - 10 minutes into town where there are many excellent restaurants. The rooms are spacious and if mine... More

6-star BnB Guest House - justifiably wins awards regularly. Epic views around the valley and mountains, almost every need has been anticipated and accommodated; delightful staff, super-secure, and truly home from home; breakfast is so good, it's entirely natural to try to eat everything. Beautiful lounge and honesty bar, nice pool, secure parking. Beware it's two or three blocks back... More

i visited Cape Town with my husband recently and found this little jewel in the heart of Franchhoek. The accommodation was fantastic. The rooms had all the luxuries you would find in a 5 star hotel. There was a beautiful garden with a crystal clear pool and a lovely lounge area. The breakfast set us up for the whole day... More

Our overall comment in addition to our high rankings above is: consistantly good. Friendly and accommodating management always appear to have their fingers on the local pulse of Franschhoek village and know exactly what's going on that's of interest or importantance to visitors. But for us a key differentiator is this guest house's position and proximity to the top restaurants... More

My husband and I stayed at Gable Manor as part of a surprise weekend for my birthday. Whilst it wasn't my husband's first choice, judging from the rather misleading Gable Manor website it seemed like a good option, as the preferred accomodation choices were already fully booked. To say that we were utterly disappointed is an understatement. Upon arrival, we... More

We stayed two nights at this guest house and it was a pleasant stay. The location is good, not right in town, it is about 10 minutes walk or a short drive to the main shopping area. Our room was nice, clean and functional. There is a small pool which unfortunately we didn't get time to use and the gardens... More
