What a delightful "home away from home"! Comfortable rooms with soft beds, nestled in a lovely garden with an inviting pool, deck chairs and all. Super friendly and helpful staff with good and ready advice in a truly hospitable way. Thanks a lot to The Corner staff and management who made this a memorable stay in every way. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Corner House for 2 nights while touring the local wineries and can only say good things about it. The staff were super helpful, especially with the steady stream of G&T to the pool after a hard day of wine touring. The rooms are very comfortable and good size, with excellent breakfast, with plenty of fresh fruit and delicious pastries and a-la-carte eggs etc, out on the veranda. restaurants are an easy stroll away, town centre reachable in a few minutes by foot. highly recommended

My husband and I just stayed at this lovely hotel/guesthouse for the first time, and we both absolutely loved it. The hotel is situated on a very pretty, quiet street with easy access to the Main Street with its shops and restaurants. Our hotel room was very clean and spacious with a beautiful bathroom with both a shower and a gorgeous bathtub. Also included were lovely, high end toiletries from Charlotte Rhys of Cape Town. The staff were very courteous, helpful and professional. Included with our stay was a complimentary wine tasting on our first night and a tasty, full breakfast in the morning. We have done a lot of road trips since March of 2020 due to the pandemic and have stayed in many hotels. This, however, was our most favorite hotel!!

Great Guesthouse. We were there for 3 nights staying in Franschhoek. This is a very lovely place. We met the owners, very lovely people who celebrated their wedding anniversary, for 42 years I think. Congratulations. The rooms were very nice, clean and silent. The breakfast was very morning like art with nice flowers. We would stay there again.

The Corner Residence was the ideal spot to spend a long weekend in Franschhoek. We were able to check in early with secure parking. the rooms were spacious and clean and well equipped. The breakfasts were awesome and the service professional and friendly. Michaela arranged in room massages that were fantastic. being within a short walk of the town centre we had easy access to the restaurants and shops without any of the noise. I would definitely recommend this establishment.
