Staying in this hotel was a treat from the moment we arrived. A warm professional welcome from Conrad who could not have been more helpful in suggestions for our stay. The room was one of the nicest I’ve ever stayed in, and the breakfast was exceptional. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer, but we certainly will on a future visit.

Last Word is a beautiful little boutique hotel perfectly situated at the end of the Main Street in Franschhoek. From the moment we arrived Conrad and his team couldn’t do enough to ensure a perfect stay for us and our friends. Our room was vast with a sitting area, enormous bathroom and super comfy bed. The decor was reminiscent of a Kit Kemp interior. The common areas were spotless and the small pool provided a lovely opportunity to cool down. There’s a welcoming sitting room shared by all guests with the most well stocked honestly bar I’ve ever encountered. Breakfast in the quirky but tastefully decorated dining area was of a high standard and nothing was too much trouble for the team. It was super easy to walk to everything in Franschhoek including numerous wine farms and all the main sites and shops. It was the perfect place to stay for a 3 night visit to due to the location, standard of accommodation and the friendly professional service.

A very warm welcome from the manager, who introduced the staff to us. Accommodation was incredible, so spacious and extremely comfortable. The Manager suggested places to eat that were nearby. I would recommend this establishment to anyone travelling through the area.

Welcomed by the Manager and accommodated despite an early arrival into our Superior Room (really an extensive suite offering every amenity including white port decanter, drinks fridge and gin!) this hotel is ideally positioned and suited to enjoy the heart of this safe, pretty and welcoming town. Beautiful pool and terraces with a generous free bar: what more could you wish for!?! It’s the special, individual touches that greet your return to your room each night that we will remember….be it a pillow-treat or a romantic candle illuminated welcome.

What a lovely hotel. The room was beautiful, the pool area a perfect place to relax, and the welcome was unbelievably friendly. Everything is small, boutique, and delightful! We were only there two nights, but there were so many lovely little touches, especially the little 'pillow deserts' instead of chocolates. A lovely base from which to explore Franschoek. We'd happily come back.

What a beautiful place to stay.!!! Franklin and his wonderful staff left us wanting for nothing.Lovely rooms,exquisite decor and furnishings throughout this fabulous hotel.Even though it is a 5 star property, is just very intimate and doesn't have that stuffiness you can experience at other establishments in this category. I've always said it's the people that make a place and your experience in said place and Franklin and his team manage this in Spades.Also just to say Breakfast is wonderful too.Well done to all and Thank you.

Where do i start here? Chic is the word i would use to describe this property. The decor throughout is stunning. The location is in the town but you feel cocooned within its walls when you return after your days activities. The staff are gentle and aim to please. The rooms are fab and have a nightly turndown service and left us an unexpected but welcome mini desert. The breakfast was served to you. (Not buffet style) and i loved the way it is served with your own fruit and cheese platter and hot breakfast choice

We recently used this property as a base to explore Franschhoek and the surrounding winelands. It is perfectly situated on the town's main street whilst still being secluded and quiet. It is also within walking distance of the fantastic Wine Tram terminus. Regarding the hotel itself, the room was huge, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfasts were superb, and the general ambience was informal and relaxing. Many thanks to Konrad who proactively contacted us before we arrived to arrange dinner reservations at some of the town's well known and celebrated restaurants, considering that it was still peak season. This was greatly appreciated! Highly recommended.

The Last Word, Franschhoek, has consistently been absolutely fantastic. My father and I have been staying there now for about 5 years and every trip has been perfect from start to finish. The team are so friendly, welcoming and professional and the place itself is perfection. I cannot imagine coming to Franschhoek and staying anywhere else. Just back from second trip of 2022 and planning when to return.
