We stayed over at the Lab for one night after going on the wine tram. We were warmly welcomed by Gerald. Our room was clean and neat. When we got back from the tram we had fun giving Echo instructions to play our favourite music, change the color of our lighting, open and close our blinds. There was a coffee machine and bar fridge in our room. The open shower was a bit of a problem as it flooded our bathroom. Breakfast was included. We had yummy omlettes and toast with jam and cheese outside by the pool area. It was good value for money and we'll recommend it to friends who like to do the wine tram too and need an affordable place to sleep in Franschhoek, which is not easy to find.

We decided at short notice to book a night away from home to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The host, Gerald was incredible. He organized a thoughtful birthday card, a stunning bunch of flowers and placed them in the room to welcome the birthday girl. Gerald was incredibly helpful, friendly, communicated well, and was there whenever we needed him. We really enjoyed the outdoor heated pool and fireplace which we took full advantage of on a relatively cold winter night. We opted to rent the ebikes on the following morning, and they were an absolute hoot. The included breakfast was tasty and exceeded our expectations. Overall our stay was thoroughly enjoyable.

Exceptional service and the technology there is amazing! To sum it up, my year old daughter came home and could not stop looking at the ceiling and asking Echo to switch on the lights😂 Absolutely loved it.

We enjoyed our stay at the LAB, staff was excellent, available when needed and very helpful, thank you. The technology in the room maybe needs some fine tuning but was an unique experience. Breakfast was great thanks to the kitchen staff.
