this place cannot be faulted. We stayed there in December 2011. Excellent central location and just back from the main street ,extremely quiet. Though we had the second least expensive room (Uitsig with view) it was enormous with large windows on three sides. My recollection is 9 in all. so the room was full of light and had a balcony. A large and comfortable bed which was bigger than a super king. Housekeeping was superb with the room being cleaned sheets etc changed by the time we returned from breakfast.The (free) laundry service promised next day but in fact was same day. There was a free well stocked mini bar and a free mobile phone to use as well as uk adaptors. Breakfast had everything, with home made items and everything cooked to order. The owners were keen to assist and gave freely of their local knowledge and e. g.printed off maps for us for routes to Stellenbosch etc. If you want to stay in Franschhoek don't stay anywhere else.
