What a fantastic stay we had at Avondrood this past weekend. The Guest House was absolutely amazing and rooms were perfect. Justin and his team were top class and nothing was too much trouble for them. If you looking for a place to stay in Franschoek, look no further then Avondrood Guest House. You will not be disappointed and we will definitely back. Thank you Justin and team for a wonderful weekend away.

Property's Favourite Review
We had been lucky to experience staying here a couple of years ago. When the opportunity arose that we could return to this beautiful part of the world, Avondrood was a must. We stayed three nights (as we had done previously) but came away with the feeling that we really should have stayed longer. Everything is perfection, pure bliss and staff who make you feel like you are part of the family. We initially were on more of a budget than our previous stay, this time choosing The Old Village Room and honestly, loved it. It had character, and almost like a little hall way on entry which the bathroom and bedroom came off of. This room faces the road but we never experienced any noise at all. As others have mentioned the breakfasts are yummy, the bar extremely well stocked and Justin, Cecilia and Luka truly lovely people. Here's to hoping that we can return someday and make our promise of staying a bit longer. Thank you all, you made the start of our holiday an absolute blessing. Clive and Debbie (and love the necklace I bought from the jewellery selection in the lounge/bar area - it's been worn every day and now back in a dreary UK it holds the South African warmth in it)

An amazing guest house with that little extra. We have spent a lot of time in South Africa over the years and will note this guesthouse as one of our favourites. Every room live up to the pictures and more. They are spacious with large bathrooms, and furnishedin a way that is both elegant and cozy. The beds are really big and comfortable. There is also a nice pool area and you can have your delicious breakfast outside on the terrace. Most of all we want to compliment the management and staff that goes that extra length to make you feel welcome!

Avondrood offers the highest standard of professional care and attention. The location is perfect, easy walking distance to shops/restaurants and just off the hustle/bustle of the main road which allows quiet and peace in the beautiful garden and pool area. The overall standards are very good, would highly recommend as an upmarket value for money guest house in Franschhoek.
