Everything was perfect: the location in town, the room was very lovely in a beautiful house with an emmazing garden full of flowers! Addey and Alta are wonderfull and know how to receive their guests: a lot of advices to visit the right places at the right moment in Franschhoek and full of little attentions all day! If we have the chance to come back in this town, we will return to their home!

Great location just behind all the restaurants. Across the street from the wine tram. The hosts were in communication with me before I arrived and were very welcoming.

We had a lovely stay with Addey & Alta. The room was nice and clean, and everything was very easy - from check in to retrieving our forgotten charger. We really appreciated the heated mattress pad!

Addey and Alta were lovely hosts, very helpful and welcoming with good advice about getting the most out of the area. The room was clean and well appointed with a lot of character. The door opens onto a shared verandah with trellis and a seating area, perfect for a quiet drink. Location-wise we couldn't have asked for better. One mins walk to the centre of town and all the bars and restaurants you could need, also handy for the wineyard tour tram/bus. We'd certainly stay again and highly recommend the place.

Not bad, but not great either. Alta is very friendly and helpful but the room has an open toilet and shower which therefore make the room better for a single traveller - unless you don't mind listening/Smelling your partner in the bathroom.
