We had the most wonderful stay, Justin and his team catered for our every need after a tough day out trail running. The rooms were recently updated and were immaculate and comfortable, the breakfast was world class. Thank you Justin for making our girls night away a truly memorable one. We will definitely all be back.

Property's Favourite Review
This might just be one of my favorite stays of all time. Everything was perfect, from the second we arrived to the time we had to leave. Luca was great and you could really tell she loves the guest house. We had a high tea added to our room and wow, our expectations were greatly exceeded. The rooms, the grounds, everything about Avondrood is amazing. I would fly back to SA just to come back here!

Avondrood Guest House is the perfect place to escape to in Franschhoek. Justin and Luka ensured that we were well taken care of from the moment we arrived to the time we left their lovely establishment. On stepping into the cosy lounge area,the fireplace was lit and created a warm welcome. The suite we stayed in was beautifully furnished and comfortable. At Avondrood they have achieved the perfect balance between modern and old -world charm. Breakfasts were delicious and either served in the comfort of our suite or in the well- appointed dining area of the guest house. Dining out or exploring what Franschhoek has to offer is a quick stroll from Avondrood, although it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of main rd,Franschhoek. The hosts were great at suggesting places to dine and making reservations on our behalf. We would love to return in Summer now that we have found our place to stay in this special part of the winelands.

5 Stars is not enough…this is 10 Star lodging! Justin the General Manager is as kind and gracious of a host you could ever ask for. All of your wants and needs are met and exceeded. The property and room are incredible and the location to town can’t be beat. We are high level Marriott travelers, dont make the mistake of staying somewhere to get points, stay where you wish you had booked more nights!

Justin and Luca were amazing. We stayed at Avondrood for two nights and wish we had more time. The guesthouse and rooms were impeccably decorated and Justin and Luca were extremely accommodating. They arranged a wonderful private tour with a driver of some of the local wineries. It’s a beautiful place in a beautiful village. Highly recommend!
